Laura/Lala & Leslie/udontcallmeles

Our Favorite Things:

2.  RuPaul’s Drag Race, enabled by Mygirlrobot.

3.  Lost, Season 6.

4.  Spring Fling board on Rav!

5.  Haapsalu Shawl book

Laura –

1.  Fantastic Mr. Fox

2.  Toe-Up Socks for Everybody by Wendy Johnson – Laura sample knit for this book!  – we will both probably knit the Norweigan Rose socks.

Spinning – Leslie has a Schacht matchless, but not much spinning right now.  Laura has a Schacht ladybug and is knitting on a batt from Shunklies(rav)/etsy.  Laura is considering a bulky flyer from TLE. We both wish we could spin like Lynnzimm.

Next on the needles:

Leslie – Vesper Knee highs.  Will use Perfect Day Yarns/eatmyoxygen in Wake in Bamboo Haiku, and Vesper yarns in Wildflower Meadow for the leg.  The colorway Laura was mentioning was Nevermore in PDY Laceweight.

Also check out Jen/Piddleloop’s fantastic Etsy shop for some really cool bags!

Laura – Anne Hanson’s Hypoteneuse in silky wool.  Laura might do it in Noro Silk Garden, which Leslie used for Lady Eleanor. Perhaps Jared Flood’s Redhook, but is kind of intimidated by all the short rows.

Laura works Part Time at Hank of Yarn in Southaven, MS.

Both pumped for Spring Fling starting April 22nd in St. Louis, MO.

About Leslie

Leslie is obsessed with knitting, and when possible, perfection in her knitting. All stripey socks must match exactly and all lace must be blocked severely. She has major love for all of her viewers/readers and hopes to keep blogging and podcasting for years to come.
