Episode 198 – In A Lovable Way

Laura is knitting on some plain afterthought heel socks out of Lollipop Yarn on size 1 (2.25) needles.  She is knitting on the Red Robin Shawl by Helen Stewart out of Juno Fibre Arts Alice in the Raisen colorway.  It is being knit on size 6 Signature needles.  She has also ripped out parts of her Antler and prepped for reknitting.

Leslie is working on the Magic Cake Ruffle Shawl by Paula Emmons Fuessle on a size 6/4.00mm, but it hasn’t gotten much love lately.  She is also working on Driftwood using Valley Yarns Amherst on a US Size 9.  She started a pair of stripey socks out of Magic & Moonshine in the “Your Mom’s Kitchen” colorway.

Laura has some batts from Dripping fiber Studio (160 yards 2-ply) Knitting Hill colorway.

Leslie spun a braid of Big Alice Dyes in 80% merino 20% silk in the Sturm Und Drang colorway and got 440 yards.  She also spun 4oz of Knitty & Color in the Goldenrod colorway and hopes to put the two together in a project.

Question from Marilyknits “How do you handle alternating skeins in a project using hand dyed yarns or other yarns with shade variations? I have never been satisfied with my attempts.”

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.
