Episode 46 – Starving Artists

Laura & Leslie show off their matching hats and both have spinning content! Laura reviews Scarf Style from Interweave and we pick a winner from last week’s contest.

Laura is knitting on Washington Square out of New Zealand Aran Wool and it is a whole 15 inches long (Yay armpits!) and the first sleeve has been started.  Still on the needles are the Twisted Fiber Arts in the Ravelry colorway socks.  I’ve started knitting the Broken Hand Hat by Wendyknits.  This is a test knit.  I’m also knitting on an Ishbel shawl out of Casbah for my swap partner.

Leslie is knitting on the Pogona shawl out of Wollmeise in Bluebell.

Leslie has finished Broken Hand Mittens (a testknit for Wendyknits).  She has also finished a Starving Artist hat out of handspun. She knit the Slouchy Beret version.

Laura has finished a Starving Artist in the Slouchy Beret version. I knit this one inside out.  I used some Twisted Fiber Arts Handspun.  I also finished a Make It Work Shawl out of Mababrigo Worsted in the Ravelry Red colorway. Single Men Cowl out of Malabrigo Twist in the Pearl Ten colorway in done and the pattern is now available for free on Ravelry.

Leslie has finished spinning and plying 4oz of the “Gumball” colorway of Gale’s Art. Laura has finished spinning the first 4oz of the pound of Eulenspiegel Polwarth from Crown Mountain Fibers.

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.
