.... I need some opinions from those that have come before me.
I am finishing up a pair of clogs for Jim and the size if pretty straightforward, size 11. I am about to start a pair for his mom who is a size 8.5. The pattern is written for a womens size 6, 8, and 10.
My question is, do I knit a size 8 and felt it less producing a softer fabric or do I go for a 10 and felt it more for a stiffer one. (and I have already thought of the "go for the stiffer one" joke). I'm using Classic Elites' "Inca Alpaca" (100% alpaca) So I assume that if I knit the larger I can get it down to size.
