Episode 82 – A Sweet Red

Laura has on the needles some self-designed socks out of STR lightweight in the Fire on the Mountain colorway (size 1.5 needles). She has also worked on a mitered crosses blanket out of Silk Garden and Cascade 220. 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 Mermaid Lagoon sock out of Madelintosh Pashmina. She has also caked some Single Malt Woolmeise 100% for the Make a Wish socks.

Leslie has finished 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!  Leslie has finished a cowl out of the lovely Aran weight from Another Crafty Girl on size 9s.

Laura has finished a Mitered Crosses square out of Silk Garden and Cascade 220.

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.

    It was fabulous seeing you both this past weekend! Leslie, if I ever had you for a swap, you’d have socks. I’ve just been lucky enough to get Laura’s name a few times.

    I love your show. I love that you share all things fibre so eagerly. But I would love to see both of you spin. You have shared tutorials and they are very well done and each week we see you knitting but I would love to see your wheels and not just what you spin and the results but the way you spin. I am a new spinner and I have seen a number of different spinners and everyone seems to have their own technique even though spinning is pretty standard. So how about doing a tutorial or a special episode dedicated to your personal spinning styles and maybe the spinning styles of some of your friends and previous guests.

    Keep the podcasts coming – I love love love every episode.

    I just did a segment of “Web Knitting” for our guild on Monday. Ususally we offer websites where the memebers can find patterns or technique info. This month I did “Blogs and Podcasts” to show them some of my favorites and inform them where to find some of you. OF course I mentioned that you are both my favorites. So your following should increase a little this week. I can’t imagine how you get FOs done almost every week to show us. Please keep “podding”!

    Leslie, you always sound so shy at the very beginning of the show, but you seem to warm up as it goes on. heh

    Love the show!

    5 stars,
    a lovely entertaining episode.
    Laura, the shawl is gorgeous in the colours now, will be even more so when you add the other skein.
    Leslie, the cardigan is great!!! just love the yoke colour way; matches body of cardi so well. I wouldn’talter the sleeves, ‘cos you may be wearing it over a sleeved top and then it will tighten.
    I was on a VKN Monday, Carin was one of the group and she showed what you gave to her. So excited, it seemed she bounced in her chair!!!!!!!
    safe travel

    hi guys! loving the show, but last two eps I’ve got error messages trying to download it from itunes to my iphone (3)

    It’s saying “this show cannot be played on this iphone”. Just wondering if you know why that would start happening? (previous eps have downloaded, no problem) I only ask cos I know you have mentioned it on the show previously, and am hoping there is a solution!

    I have been afraid to ask so that no one thinks I’m stupid but what does BFL stand for or what is it?

  10. Geal says:

    I hope to see you tomorrow at the Boro. And I hope to get some fabulous fibers!

    Love your show!! So great to see all the different fibery goodness…only problem is, I need to physically stop myself from running over to Etsy etc to buy yet more fibre/yarn etc!! Lovely to see such variety, especially as in the U.K it’s quieter on the fibre/knitting front…..keep up the great fibery goodness!!

  13. Carolyn Robbin says:

    I love your podcast and am going through withdrawal because iTunes is screwing up and not loading your show onto my iPod. I’m going crazy!! If you know why that might be happening, let me know! Everything else is syncing…..except u and Round the Twist! ….kind of bizarre…. anyway, love u guys!
