We had such an amazing weekend that we gabbed on for nearly an hour about it! I hope you enjoy!
Shownotes by LaLa
It’s episode 17! I was shocked to realize that we’ve been doing this for over 3 months now.
Also, we had way too much fun at Tempted Estates. Thank you again Bob, Stacy, and Emily for having us.
New pair of toe up socks with gusset heel out of Ashabee Fiber Oasis in her bamboo/merino/nylon base. The colorway name is Eclipse and I bought it in 2007 as one of my first etsy purchases. I also got lots of cool stuff from Fearless Fibers and Dyeabolical Yarns back then (I really need to knit that stuff up and buy more of their wonderful yarns).
Log Cabin out of Cotton Classic (it’s even boring me at this point).
Soon on the needles will be the Featherweight Cardi (it’s a race Jessica!)
1×1 rib scarf out of hanspun Yarn Love Marianne Roving in the Maiden colorway
Secret knitting is done!
Knit, Purl, & RIP-it Socks by Deby Lake out of Wollmeise “Sabrina” and Claudia’s Handpainted“Mint.”
Vertizag Socks (they are at home being blocked!)
Noro Socks (plain from the top down with Eye of the Partridge heel)
Laura is currently into a Steampunk as a genre and likes Soulless. I’m also interested in this when it comes out.
Laura is spinning:
Leslie is spinning:
and has divided it by color. Around 100 yards.
Bonkers 50/50 Merino Tencel Blend. 300 yards of sport-weight yarn.
in her Merino/Silk blend(TLE still has some in stock, I’m just sayin’) in the Teal We Meet. 444 yards total.
Hanging out with all the peeps at Tempted Estates. Along the way we visited with Elabeth and lots of other cool people at Stringtown
. We got some Nashua sock yarn, puppy snips, and Regia Handyed Effect.
LaLa won a prize from the Socks from the Toe-up Knitalong from Tuscan Grove.
It’s very pretty and destined to become a Multanomah.
We review the new Knitscene Magazine from Interweave Knits.
MeganMME from plurk and Lynn sent Leslie some Hello Yarn Fiber (Lynn sent me some too). Thanks gals!
We saw Charlaine Harris at the Hernando Library. She was an excellent speaker and very funny. Leslie has massive calves. Strangers tell her so…
Eloise gave me an awesome orange bag. She is Dingledaisy on Ravelry. I remembered it as soon as we stopped recording. Really, I did.
We’re going to Arkansas on Wednesay for a somewhat relaxing weekend.
Also, the Arkaksas Fiber Arts Extravaganza is in December. Y’all should go, all the cool people are doing it. You can find info on the event here
and the lodge here
Thanks for watching y’all!
