Episode 43 – Where We Wear Shrek Ears

Laura and Leslie show their FO’s in String Theory Yarn as well as other WIP’s and FO’s. Laura reviews the latest KnitScene magazine and another booklet. We talk about Twisted Strands Podcast and other sundry items.

String Theory discount code is “KNITGIRLLLS10”, and is valid for 60 days! If she doesn’t have exactly what you want posted, just PM her for a special order!

Here we go, Steelers, here we go!  Pittsburgh’s going to the Super Bowl!

Laura is knitting on Washington Square out of New Zealand Aran Wool from the stash. I’m also knitting Urbana by Stephen West for the Selfish Knits KAL.  It’s out of Malabrigo Rios in the Archangel colorway.  Ishbel is on the needles, but you can’t see it because I forgot it.  I’ve also cast on some socks out Twisted Fiber Arts in the Ravelry colorway.

Leslie is knitting on Slable by Wolly Wormhead (my favorite hat designer).  She is knitting it out of Dragonfly Djinni in “Blue Spruce.”  She is also knitting on some Master Knitter Swatches.

Laura is done with Elphaba Mitts out of String Theory Duality in the Dark Matter colorway.

Leslie is done with the Spot Check socks out of Numma Numma and Lime and Violet. She also did some cross stitch from Subversive Cross-stitch.

Leslie has had some progress with her spinning and I have finished “the batt that sheds” singles.

Favorite Things:

Twisted Strands Podcast: Hilarious and not child safe.

Laura is in love with Stephen West and has purchased his Clockwork pattern.

I went to Shrek the musical as a daddy/daughter date. It was really funny!

I got a new book and Magazine.  Shetland Trader by Gudrun Johnston is a wonderful little pattern book (Yay Indie Books!). I also got the new Knitscene.  There are quite a few patterns we like (sorry that my close ups are a little off).

We love Knitting Without Tears and all Elizabeth Zimmerman books.

We picked up some new stash at Loop in Tulsa, OK.  Leslie got some Madelintosh Pashmina in Turquose.  I got some Vintage Chunky by Berroco and Be Sweet Bamboo Taffy.

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.
