Episode 56 – Name The Newbie

This week we draw names for the Week 3 winners, and tell you how to enter for week 4 prizes! We go through our standard segments and Laura reviews 60 Quick Baby Knits. In the Favorite Things segment we do a little enabling of some awesome products!

Laura is working on the Mitered Crosses Blanket out of Noro Silk Garden (colors 279, 252 and 87) and Cascade 220. They are knit on US size 6 needles (4mm).   I’ve also finished one of the Numma Numma socks (US 1/2.25mm) and am almost done with the second.  I have 4 increase points of the Gaenor out of Kitchen Sink Dyeworks in Luze Merino Fine in the Dexter colorway size 5 (3.75) needles done. I also started some plain stripey socks with an afterthought heel out of Three Ewes Twisted in Fiber in the Salt Water Taffy colorway on size 1 (2.25) needles.

Leslie is knitting on Hitchhiker out of Wollmeise in the Am Kalten Polor colorway.

Leslie has finished a Magrathea out of some Cloudlover handspun.

Both Laura and Leslie have finished their SAL/KAL fiber dyed by Tempted.

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.
