Episode 60 – Just Because

This week Laura & Leslie recap some of the goodies we bought at Kentucky Sheep & Fiber Fest. We also review Spud & Chloe at the Farm, and announce the details of our “Just Because” contest!

Laura is knitting 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 begun the Summer Mystery shawlette out of Sleeping Dragon in Key Lime.  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.”

Leslie is working on the Senneh socks using the Silk Road Sock book.  She is using Hazel Knits in the Cherry Fizz colorway on 2.5 mm (1.5 US) needles.  Leslie has also started leadlight
