Episode 9 – Post Atlanta Glow

Fair warning – this one had us pulling out our hair a little.  My laptop is nearing the end of its’ life (working on a replacement) and it kept locking up.  The content is all there, but there is a whining noise in some spots and it’s broken down a bit more than usual.

That said, I hope you still want to watch!  Shownotes will be added later – it’s after 11 here and I’m ready to snuggle up in bed!

Shownotes by LaLa (be afraid)

Join our ravelry group, you can find it here!

Laura is kinda working on the silk kerchief which no longer has a pattern but she’s going to wing it based on her quasi notes. She also knits on her Penelope out of Cascade 220 when she watches Round the Twist.

Leslie is working on a dishcloth (she’s boring like that).

Laura has finished her BFL Mitts out of Fleece Artist Blue face Leicester Aran.  She used the Rustic SIlk Mitts pattern.  She also finished her Vesper Socks out the the Muddy Waters colorway.

Leslie has finished her Vesper socks out of the wildberry colorway.  She is anal about her striping and did an after-thought heel to keep the striping in sequence.  She also finished a Penelope out of handspun (cough overachiever cough).  You can find more cool Rebecca Danger patterns on her blog.

We went to Atlanta and found a decent hotel.  You can see my post below for lots of details on the whole trip. But the real highlight of the trip was hanging out with Allen from Numma Numma.  You can find lots out about Numma Numma (including when she updates) on her ravelry group. Thank you Allen for hanging with us!  We heart you!

We went to Knitch yarn shop in Atlanta.  Laura, Leslie, and Allen all got some Sheep to Shoe kits and Laura got some Gale’s Fiber Arts

We’re both watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  It’s on instant viewing  on Netflix.

Laura wants to form/be in her own Glee Flash Mob.

We got Ravelry bags, they are super cute.

Laura has no spinning.  She’s still working on some Twisted fiber.

Leslie has put the high-speed bobbins and whorl on the wheel.  She’s spinning lace singles out of Vesper fiber.

Leslie is curious about the Master Knitting program.  Laura is not.

Arkansas Fiber Extravaganza! There are still rooms and it is awesome!

We’re doing a knitalong with the wonderful Wendyknit’s book, Socks for Everybody. We will be knitting the Norwegian Rose pattern.  Leslie has not made up her mind what she is going to knit it out of.  Laura is going to knit her’s out of Dream in Color Smooshy. Her colors are Happy Forest and Gothic Rose.

Leslie is going to swatch and Laura is not. Jared Flood is a master of swatching.  We loved taking his classes at fling.

Laura is awesome and has the shirt to prove it!

Thanks for watching!

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.

    Aside from being broken into more segments I didn’t really notice much interruption. And I wouldn’t even call being segmented an interruption 🙂 I can’t believe you’re on episode 9 already! Keep it up!

  4. Another great one! Glad you had fun in Atlanta. Oh, and Angel… I’m on the final season of the box set now. Had fun watching you two beauties. Looking forward to the next episode!

    Keep em coming girls!

    also. I’m so fucking indecisive! I have no idea what yarn to use! gah!

  6. Lee says:

    Loved it! Are you guys going to set a deadline for the KAL because I want to do the socks so very badly, but I am knitting something for a wedding and I don’t know how much time I will be able to dedicate. I was wondering if I started later would I still be able to keep up?
    Love the shirt LaLa! Love the Vesper socks Leslie!

  7. Jessica says:

    Loved it! Love Leslie’s handspun Penelope. Other favorite moments: when Leslie stuck the Penelope in front of Laura’s face, Laura’s shirt, Leslie’s comment “be jealous, bitches”….

    Les – Master Knitter thing with TKGA – I joined up and ordered the specs for it. It’s been sitting here for 6 months or more! I haven’t done it but have always wanted to. Whaddya think?

  9. Ann says:

    My opinion is you should use the Numma numma toasty in blueberry jam, and contrast it with a darker color. Maybe something almost black. Just a thought.

  10. Kate Lathrop says:

    oh my lord – the prostitots marathon! Any fake toenails?

    And yummy – David B. – mmmmm
