Episode 81 – Post Pride

Hope you enjoy this week’s show!

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 (1.5) needles.  This yarn was purchased at the wonderful Sweet Sheep Yarn shop when I first began knitting. Laura has begun a Shaelyn out of handspun superwash BFL from Numma Numma  for Knitting Pipeline’s Shaelyn KAL. It is being knit on size 6 Signature Needles.

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). She is knitting in on needles from Glass Pens and Signature.   We are sweater drama queens!  Cowl out of the lovely Aran weight from Another Crafty Girl on size 9s (still needs to be joined).

Laura has finished a Frostbite hat out of Cascade Ecological Wool from Hank of Yarn.  If you have time Glenna C. has a wonderful blog.   Laura also finished an Age of Brass and Steam out of the handspun of Frabjous Fibers in the Ink colorway of their glitter blend.

Leslie has finished a  Thermis out of her Cakewalk yarn in the Weenie colorway (she is holding it doubled).

Laura has spun a 3 oz batt from on the wheel from Dawning Dreams.  It is 160 yards of a 2-ply.  She has also started some Tempted roving in the Treehugger colorway. She has also spun 60 yards of super bulky thrums from Moonwood Farms.

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.
