Episode 41 – UM-apalooza

Leslie shares her shawl design in progress and Laura shows off her designed & knit in a few hours hat! Laura reviews Knitting Classic Style by Veronik Avery & we talk about our upcoming trip.

There is snow in Mississippi!  I am all about the word, “like” this week, sorry y’all.

Laura is knitting on Washington Square out of New Zealand Aran Wool from the stash.  I’m in love with Through the Loops patterns. Seriously, I’m obsessed.

Leslie is knitting on a shawl of her own design out of her handspun and some stripy socks out of Vesper.

Laura is done with the Diamond Gansey Socks out of DK Knits.  I also designed a beret and knit it out of Malabrigo Chunky.

Leslie has blocked her Batik out of Lynn’s Handspun.  It looks sooooo nice!

Laura is spinning the batt that sheds so that it won’t share it’s fiber babies with the rest of the stash.

Favorite Things:

Congrats Lisha, Nick, and Baby Molly!

Christmas Presents for me! An awesome steampunk bracelet from Lazysockmonkey, an ipod touch (with angry birds and cut the rope).  I listened/watched podcasts on my trip including Knitting Pipeline, Round the Twist, and Yarngasm.  Kobe and I have been playing Guilty Party.  My wee dragon is awesome!

There is a small shawl exchange occuring on theknitgirllls group. This is being organized by Phobbs1 and Lazysockmonkey.  Deadline is January 12th.

Darthknitter sent us some lovely yarn and fiber.  Thank you Tammy! Check out her podcast!

We will be daypassing it at Camp KIP!

Book Review: Knitting Classic Style by Veronik Avery.  She also is the mastermind behind  knitting 24/7 (It wasn’t listed on her website when I looked, but it’s awesome as well) and St. Dennis collection from Classic Elite.

We’ll be going to Oklahoma next weekend so the show will be delayed!

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.

    OMG, I’m sitting here shaking my head and telling the computer “no, no, no” when you’re talking about me podcasting and then I cracked up because Leslie obviously knows me very well. And I’m bringing my wheel, which I know is a space sucker, but in the interest of my sanity and eliminating crankiness, I seriously need some plying help, which I know I can get from you guys. Can’t wait to see you all.

    First, have fun in Oklahoma! Also, Veronik Avery most recently published Knitting 24/7…maybe that was the book you were thinking of? Lastly…I was wondering…Laura, did you ever finish your Norwegian Rose socks? And if not, does that mean Leslie gets to pick something from your stash?? 😉

  8. Anna L says:
