Westknits KAL has been ripped out.  I’m also knitting Elizabeth’s Cowl on size 10.5 needles out of Wendy Knit’s Lace book in a handspun bulky gradient.

Laura is finished with Lil Bit socks out of Wollmeise for Camp Loopy 2 project.

Laura 600 yards Sanguine Gryphon (Dark Wine Sea). I’ve also spun 36 yards of art yarn for LynZimm’s Make a wish fundraiser.  She is currently spinning some of the lovely balls that Becca sent.  You can find more information about spinning on the fold here.  Leslie is spinning some Tempted soysilk/wool in Mediatation.

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.

    I’m looking forward to Wendy’s book. YOu got this one up SUPER FAST. I enjoy it on Sunday night- had a hideous day. It’s so soothing to have something like this to relax with. Thanks SO much. You have NO idea how soothing I find this. It’s like a talk show for knitters. You’re the Regis and Kelly of the Spinning community. HA!!!

  4. Laura's Dad says:

    Wow! You are being compared to Regis and Kelly by a regular watcher! It begs the question, which one of you reminds the listener of Regis?

    Leslie – the sweater is beautiful and it is a great gift.

    Love the new “On the Air” light. Now the “studio” is complete.

  6. Enid Mary Shaw says:

    5 stars

    is the ”on air” set of lights the project Michael was working on last week?

  7. Whitney says:

    Happy Knitting to you both!

    happened upon your podcast a month or so ago and have been catching up on past episodes 🙂 strange but it is nice to have “company” while I knit away! I am ready to invest in a pair of Signature needles. I was wondering what length you generally order; I’d like to get the most bang for my buck but don’t like cables that are too long, they get futsy. Appreciate your expertise!
