Episode 465 – It Takes A Village

 

 

Leslie is knitting Poet out of Biches and Buches yarn and a sockhead hat out of Cat Sandwich Fibers in Willie Nillie.  

Laura is knitting on a Christmas Stocking by Faye Kennington that will be based off of this one.  She is using an unknown white yarn from the stash, and Leading Men Fiber Arts in their West End Worsted base in the Poison Apple and All the Way to the Bank colorways.  She also cast on a sock using size 1 needles and Knit Spin Farm Targhee sport in the “wear something gaudy day”

Laura finished 3 charity hats.  They are Super Simple Slouch Hat, Chunky Beanie, and No Worries  All 3 used Lion Brand Thick and Quick Stripes.  Most used a size 10.5 needle. Laura also finished a Spectrum shawl using some handspun cormo from Bumblebee Acres and some handspun from Hello Yarn.    It was knit on size 4 needles.

Leslie finished nothing

Laura is currently spinning her last two Into the Whirled clubs.  They are 404-Name Not Found on Falkland and Adventuring Party on Cheviot.  They both are being spun on the Lendrum upright. 404 is a true 2-ply and Adventuring party is a three ply that was chunked without repeats of colors.

Leslie hasn’t spun this week but is angry that Wheezy gave away the amazing ass-cat tissue dispenser

Leslie is listening to Sleeping Beauties by Stephen & Owen King and reading The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern and A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay.  She’s also been listening to Fate’s Edge by Ilona Andrews

Laura is reading Wyde and Wayward by Charlotte English (adult) and Other Words for Home by Jasmine Warga (middle grade prose).  She is listening to Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky by Kwame Mbalia.
