Episode 44 – Where There Is Song

Laura and Leslie show you their latest projects and introduce a new segment! We review Veronik Avery’s “Knitting 24/7” and then play you a clip of Jadee’s song that she made for us.

Laura is knitting on the Starving Artist in the Slouchy Beret in the Berroco Vintage Chunky.  The pattern is now available!  I’ve also started the Make It Work Shawl out of Mababrigo Worsted in the Ravelry Red colorway.  Washington Square out of New Zealand Aran Wool is a whole 2 inches longer!  I also have some Twisted Fiber Arts in the Ravelry colorway socks.

Leslie is knitting on some socks for an afterthought heel tutorial out of Twisted Limone.

Leslie is finished with Slable by Wolly Wormhead. She is knitting it out of Dragonfly Djinni in “Blue Spruce.”

Laura is finished with Urbana by Stephen West.  It’s out of Malabrigo Rios in the Archangel colorway.  The contrast color is Miss Babs Yowza Whatta Skein.

Leslie has a new segment called, “Well Damn!” I hope to never be on this segment, but you know it’s only a matter of time.

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.

    Nice work, Leslie. About 3 or 4 times, you are positioned directly under the crown on your poster. Princess, indeed!

    great show as usual. I love the new video. I would like to see a tutorial on entrelac, if it is possible. I also would like to see that tubular cast-on Leslie raves about. It’s true what Teresa said, that crown looks great on you Leslie♥

    Hey, the quality of the new camera is superb. Color is good, but what especially caught my eye was how the camera picked up the detail of the knitted stitches in both your knitting and also the knitwear photos in the Veronik Avery book. That’s a fabulous plus for a knit-centric video podcast. Also, thanks to Laura for the warm fuzzy–stunning Herbivore. 🙂

    Also, funny idiot moment for me. (Shocker, I know, that I might have an idiot moment. Right.) So, when Leslie is talking about the birthday party she attended where she’s explaining spinning to non-fiber folk and she mentions processing a raw fleece and how she wouldn’t because of princess issues, I actually piped up, out loud to the computer (because I know you can hear me through my lap top), “and there might be poop”. (Luckily, no family members were around when I made this declaration. That’s the kind of thing they would repeatedly bring up.)

    catching up here — can you give us a link (if there is one!) for a tubular cast on — you mention you “love” it right now for starting socks top down. You-tube can be great, but not always LOL … thanks! (and as usual … thank you all for doing your podcasts for us!)
