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.”
