Episode 51 – Stuff, & Lots Of It!

We record our first show in the new craft room! We’re still trying to work out lighting tweaks, but we manage to get through WIP’s, FO’s and Spinning in under 20 minutes. Then we ramble on for another 35 in Favorite Things.

Laura is knitting on  the Shetland Pi shawl by Wendy Johnson.  It is out of Blackberry Ridge Silk Blend Laceweight (I really enjoy how rustic feeling this yarn is). I also have on the needles are the Twisted Fiber Arts in the Ravelry colorway socks (so close to being done). I began my Numma Numma test knit socks, but I’m not good on gauge, so I’ve ripped out and am going to try again on smaller needles.

Leslie has secret knitting and test knitting for Numma Numma (look for me to be copy and pasting this line for the next few weeks).

Laura has finished the mini mochi socks (hissss) and the baby hat which was the Rainbow Marley from Itty Bitty Hats out of scraps of handspun. Julia has claimed that as her own which I love.

Leslie is spinning (as we record) some lovely fiber from Woolgatherings Etsy Shop

Laura has spun 21 oz of fiber  including some from Crown Mountain Fibers, Yarn Love, Sarah Kate Fibers, and The Dying Arts.

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.
