Episode 53 – Happy Anniversary!

Laura & Leslie show you their pitiful progress on projects. Laura’s kicked out a bunch of fractal spinning and Leslie has finished spinning the Woolgatherings 4oz. Also, we show you more prizes and talk about how to enter to win!

Laura is knitting on the Mitered Crosses Blanket out of Noro Silk Garden (colors 279 and 87) and Cascade 220. They are knit on US size 6 needles (4mm).  She’s made a little progress on the Shetland Pi shawl(size 5 US/3.75mm needles) by Wendy Johnson.  It is out of Blackberry Ridge Silk Blend Laceweight.  I’ve also restarted the Numma Numma socks (US 1/2.25mm).

Leslie is working on the Numma Numma socks (US 1/2.25mm). She has an ongoing Noro Log Cabin blanket that she is switching up with Classic Elite Liberty Wool.

Laura is done with 1 Mitered Crosses Square. I’m 1/13th of the way done with the squares! Link to the Wollmeise blanket

Laura is learning how to fractal spin using some Gale’s Art in a  Corriedale Cross in the Potluck colorway. Leslie is spinning some lovely fiber from Woolgatherings Etsy Shop. She is done with her singles!
