Episode 229 – Trouvaille and Wizzpopper


Laura is knitting on a pair of socks out of Dream in color Everlasting in the Wilderness colorway.  She is trying out some new needles, Knitter’s Pride Nova Platina.  She used the Balbriggan Heel from Sock Architecture.  She has also cast on the Yowza shawl out of some handspun from Crown Mountain Farms (out of business).  She has 550 yards and is using size 7 needles.  She cast on the Rikke hate out of Invictus Yarns in the Unbowed DK base in “Etta”

Leslie is knitting a pair of Atlantic Current Socks by Meliabella out of Leading Men Fiber Arts Spotlight in Toxic Gas.  She is also working on a Pamir hat in Neeley’s Knits DK, Starry Night colorway.

Laura is spinning:

CVM on the S-R

Cormo on the Ladybug

Sampling for Infinite Twist Shawl on the Sidekick

Less is more sweater stuff on the Lendrum.

Question from seine1, “I just went back and watched your first episode and it was really fun to see you two at the beginning of your video podcasting career. How do you think your knitting/spinning skills or attitudes have changed over time? For example, Leslie said she is a monogamous knitter and now I see her showing several things on the needles. No judging here–I have multiple projects on the needles but have always been that way!”

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.
