Ep549 – Filling the Tank

Leslie is working on Camino Bubbles out of LMFA King Max colorway and Ursa Canis out of Mission Falls wool in color 662 (and desperately needs more).  After visiting a great yarn shop called Sheep Skeins in Newburgh, IN, she bought some Noro Mirai and cast on for Geometry by Cristina Ghirlanda. She’s also working on another cross stitch – best part of the job.

 Laura is working on the Beachcomb by Tif Neilan  She will be using handspun for the main color. She started a pair of plain socks out of Knitpicks Felici in the spooky colorway. She also cast on for the Gnome MKAL #7 – All work gnome play  She has also cast on Enve by Wooly Wormhead out of Fully Spun Original Aran in Cherry Blossom

Leslie finished two garments – Wardrobe Builder Tee by WBM patterns and Women’s Lowland Joggers by Lowland Kids out of french terry.  Both were from indiestitch boxes (I do receive a small referral fee if you use that link but the cost is the same regardless)

Laura did not finish anything this week.

Laura has been spinning on some patchwork kits from Hello Yarn to eventually knit into a Flax Light by Tincanknits.  She also has been spinning Kim Dyes Yarn Good Days on Targhee on the Sparrow.

Leslie is reading Fairy & Impartial: A Starfig Investigations novel by Meghan Maslow. She finished Infinite by Jeremy Robinson.

Laura has been reading One Year at Ellsmere (YA graphic novel)
