Episode 18 – Incognito

We happily present Episode 18 for your viewing pleasure.  We are using a different uploader (blip.tv) so you might see a short commercial before or after the episode, but the quality is MUCH better and I don’t have to split it into segments, so I consider it a win/win. Let me know what you guys think of the new format.

Shownotes will be up soon!

You can find your own wax mustaches here.  How can you go wrong with a box of wax mustaches.

Laura is knitting…

2 pairs of toe-up socks with gussets.  The first is out of Blue Ridge Footprints sock yarn and the second is out of Harry Potter series of Opal yarn in the Tonks colorway.

Leslie is knitting…

A pair of toe-up socks out of Regia Hand-dye Effect from StringtownYarn.

Laura is done with…

Toe-up socks with gusset out of Ashabee Fiber Oasis in her bamboo/merino/nylon base.  The colorway name is Eclipse.

Log Cabin is done!  All 20 skeins were mostly used up.

Stashdown is now down to 7 skeins and a week to go!

Leslie is done with….

A Lady Betram shawl out of handspun Vesper fiber given to her by Fibernymph (Lisa).

Soon on the needles…

Perhaps a Stacy Shawl (sorry the pattern is currently unavailable) for Leslie and a featherweight cardi race for Laura (I’m watching you Jessica).


Not a whole ton for either of us here.  You can find more info about the 4 oz Challenge here and Schact’s ratios here.

Favorite Things:

Laura got an awesome FOP square package from Dryactivebeast.  Thanks Jen!

Perfect Day Yarns has updated and she has lots of goodies!

Mom and Wheezy brought Laura back goodies from Maine in the form of Tess Designer Yarns.

We ponder size issues with Bamboo Blend sock yarns and hope that Soak wash can solve any issue.

CraftyPancakes is very sweet and gave us stuff including stuff to give away (you should watch the episode to learn how to enter to win it).  We love you Megan!

Interweave Knits review for the fall issue.  We’re both disappointed with the articles (with a Barbara Walker exception) and the patterns (to be honest, it might be the styling of the sweaters more than the patterns themselves).  I think this is the ball winder that Leslie likes.  We like the photo index.

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.
