Laura & Leslie go through our normal segments and then review Interweave Knits Summer 2011. We talk about Kentucky Fiber Fest and Stash Dash, and mention donating to the show.
Laura’s works in progress include the Shetland Pi shawl(size 5 US/3.75mm needles) by Wendy Johnson. It is out of Blackberry Ridge Silk Blend Laceweight. I’m also working on a stripy sock out of the Amy Lee Show’s Canon Hand Dyed Yarn in the Arthur base in the “We are for the Night.” I also made 1 points worth of progress on my Gaenor out of Kitchen Sink Dyeworks in Luxe Merino Fine in the Dexter colorway size 5 (3.75). The app that I talk about is Goodreader and you can find it in the itunes store.
Leslie is working on the Senneh socks using the Silk Road Sock book (we told y’all we liked that one). She is using Hazel Knits in the Cherry Fizz colorway on 2.5 mm (1.5 US) needles. You can find all of Hunter’s patterns on ravelry.
Leslie has also completed the swatch for leadlight and has submitted it for her OWLs.
FOs (starts around 11:30):
Laura has knit up some monster chunks out of scrap yarn.
Leslie has finished a quiditch bookscarf out of scrap yarn. She has also finished a Mossy Sweater out of Teal Feather Rios. She is using size 9 (5.5 mm) needles. She has sewn a blanket for her wee nephew. She also finished Hitchhiker out of Wollmeise in the Am Kalten Polor colorway. Then there was the swap square she knit out of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran from the Great American Afghan book and the Albina mitts out of the SAL/KAL fiber dyed by Tempted.
