Episode 38 – Christmas Knitting Looms

With only 2 weeks until Christmas, Laura & Leslie are powering through some gifts. Laura reviews 2 books and a magazine and Leslie shows off some goodies she got this week.

Laura is knitting on Mittens for Wheezy out of Knitpicks Merino Style from Never Knit a Man a Sweater.  If you find my mojo, tell it to come back home please.

Leslie is knitting on Nicoletta Socks out of Perfect Day Yarns in the Mermaid Tavern Colorway.  Side note: Perfect Day yarns is having a sale right now.

Laura is done with Iris in the Zombie Barbeque colorway, Matt’s Regia Socks, and the Noro Shawl.

Leslie is done with Mittens in her own made up pattern out of yarn that I dyed.  The base was Shirley from Kraemer Yarns.  She has also finished a Gloria Cowl out of Lisa Souza in the Joseph’s Coat colorway of Max base.

Laura is spinning the Pioneer Woman colorway of Lorna’s Laces Roving for Suzanne (Same Verse, the same as the first, a little bit louder and a little bit worse).

Leslie is spinning some CLoudlover fiber for CP in the Merino base, ” Decay” colorway.  Don’t be fooled Lynn, It’s a race.  You may not know it, but it’s a race.

Favorite Things:

Knit Simple is a magazine.  It has cute things, but they won’t fit me. Sigh…

I taught a fun dyeing class with Nichol (Bluegoosefarm on rav).

Perfect Day Yarns is reopening her sock club.  You can find more info about it here.

Beth1313 sent Leslie an awesome FOP package.  That soap is sooooo awesome.  The Fiber Optic Roving is also very pretty.

Never Knit Your Man a Sweater is a tad more conservative of the two “man” books.  It also has a creepy model.  Sweater sizes range from 38-50″ (not all patterns come in these sizes, these are the largest ranges of those listed).  22 total projects are listed.

Knitting With Balls. This book is a little bit more trendy.  Sweater sizes range from 30-60″.  22 total projects are included.

If y’all know any other good “guy” knit books, let me know.

ccaj  (Cyndi) sent us some awesome stuff.  Thank you sooooooooo much!

Leslie got more Cloudlover fiber (surprise!)

Last week of school!  We’ll have an episode next week, but not the following week (at least not filmed on Sunday).  We also put up some bonus footage of Arkansas Fiber Extravaganza.

You can find us on Plurk, Twitter, Facebook, Ravelry, and Itunes (leave a review or a star).

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.
