Half way there

No one faint or anything, but I am not only participating in a KAL, I am 1/2 done!

I started these yesterday, and between putting them down to join my fellow Purls at Bear Rock yesterday afternoon, and celebrating my honey's birthday, I didn't think I would get too far - I was wrong!

I seamed up the bottom sole of the 1st clog this morning, and will be casting the second one on shortly. I want to hurry up and finish these because the man who requests NO knitting ever has requested a pair of these in black and yellow. (Lemon Drop Lambs Pride no less - I offered the harvest gold shown in the pic but he said it "wasn't bright enough"! Hey, I'm just glad he actually asked me to knit him something!!)

These are being made in Deep Olive and Natural Mix Paton's Classic Merino (Probably wouldn't have been my 1st choice, but I had enough of each color in my stash, making this a stash busting project as well! And honestly, I have seen a few pics of this combo on Ravelry and it turns out rather nice I think)

After I get it posted on my blog, I'm off to cast on for the second!
