WIP Roundup: Knitting Edition

I'm having second sock syndrome pretty bad, haha.
Here's a sock in my self-striping MCN in the Celephais colorway. It's my basic self-striping sock pattern, which I give out with yarn purchase and was also on the Phat Fiber secret site. (My August yarn samples were self-striping.)
Self-striping Sock
The yarn switched from black to turquoise right as I was ready to graft the toe. I was too lazy to hunt down a yard of black yarn. :P
I was also too lazy to check the pattern when I marked the heel placement and ended up doing the heel on 50% of stitches instead of 60% :(
There's enough stretch that it fits fine. I'll do the 2nd one with 60% then decide if I want to go back and fix the first one.
I need this sock for a sample at Lambtown next month. I also want to make up a sample in my aran weight BFL yarn. I'm thinking soakers.

(Pre)Felted Clog(Pre)Felted Clog

Here's the first felted clog of a pair I'm making for Bryan. It's the Fiber Trends clog pattern and I'm using Lamb's Pride Worsted held double. I have some notes on needle use and technique on the Ravelry project page.
I didn't do the "bumper" because I plan on adding a suede sole.
Bryan hates wearing shoes and prefers the slip on variety when he has to wear shoes.
FYI- Lamb's Pride is still on sale at Yarndogs, but it's going pretty fast. That's what motivated me to finally make some clogs!

I'd offer you a ride, but we have to leave at 5am and there's probably no room in the car. :P
