Episode 232


Laura has knit 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 has also cast on a new pair of socks of out Desert Vista Dyeworks in the Color Accents Lime colorway.  She is knitting these on size 1 (2.25) needles.  Laura has also cast on the Happy Happy Joy Joy hat by Melissa Stajda (Hey Hey Lady) on size 8 needles out of Gynx Merino Worsted in the Howl’s Castle colorway.


Leslie is knitting a Lucky Me cabled cardigan out of Beaverslide Dry Goods Spruce Heather on size US8/5.0 mm needles.


Laura has finished the Rikke hat, out of Invictus Yarns in the Unbowed DK base in “Etta”.


Leslie finished a second rag quilt.


Question from Aljones1954 How do you know where you should measure for the bust/chest. I hear some say at the widest point and others say right under the armpits. It makes a big difference in the size of the garment. Could explain why some sweaters are enormous when complete.

Thanks for the show.

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.
