Laura has on the needles some self-designed socks out of STR lightweight in the Fire on the Mountain colorway (size 1.5 needles) and also has some  cutest booties on the needles.  This yarn was purchased at the wonderful Sweet Sheep Yarn shop when I first began knitting.

Leslie is knitting on a new sweater using Jared Flood’s class notes about EZ’s sweater percentage system (You can find more details about it in Knitting without Tears). Cowl out of the lovely Aran weight from Another Crafty Girl.

Laura is finished with several premie baby hats for Remembering Remy.  She has finished  a Log Cabin Blanket from Mason Dixon Knitting.  It is on size 11 (8.0mm) needles and knit out of Classic Elite Sprout.  Finished size was 22×22 unblocked (perfect car seat size, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it). Alice is also getting an At First Sight hat out of Spud and Chloe Sweater, knit on size 8 needles.   Laura is also done with a shawl called, Thin Ice, out of Tempted Good Grrl on size 6 needles.

Leslie is spinning on some lovely Miss Babs fiber in a Merino/Bamboo/Silk blend.  She has started spinning some

Laura has finished spinning some Frabjous Fibers in the Ink colorway of their glitter blend. She also has a 3 oz batt from  on the wheel and some superwash BFL from Numma Numma (Can you tell I like purple and blue?) Laura dreams of spinning 350 yards of a dk yarn for Knitting Pipeline’s Shaelyn KAL.  BTW: Leslie and I love Paula’s podcast, if you haven’t given it a listen, you should.

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.
