This week we go through our normal segments – Laura has lots to show and Leslie has nearly nothing. We review Knitting Wrapsody and talk about Arkansas Fiberarts Extravaganza 2011.
Laura knitting on the “No Place Like Home Socks” by the lovely Star Athena. They are out of Wollmeise in the Pillars of Fire and size 1 (2.25) signature dpns in the 6 inch length. Sharon saved her life by gifting her some String Theory Entanglement in Quasar for some plain socks on 1.5 (2.5 mm). I’m also designing a shawl called, Thin Ice, out of Tempted Good Grrl on size 6 needles. 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).
Laura is finished with afterthought heel socks out of Another Crafty Girl in the Squirtle colorway, plain stockinette socks on 1.5 (2.5 mm). She has also finished some matching baby socks and an afghan square for her partner. You can find the site I use for baby measurements here. OK Go video is here.
