Episode 246 – Acceptable Failure


Episode 246

Laura is knitting on 2 color Beanie out of Cleckheaton Australian Superfine Merino. She has also cast on the Irene Adler shawl by Kirsten Kapur out of WM lace in a we’re different colorway.  Jackaroo back and fronts are done and the sleeves will be done today.


Leslie is working an Etherial Tank in Hazelknits Filigree lace Ruby Love colorway  held double on a size 4/3.5mm needle.  She picked back up her Bridgewater out of Madelinetosh lace in the Silver Fox colorway. She also swatched for Fuse by Veronik Avery but isn’t sure it’s going to work.


Leslie plied 7oz of Spinning Straw Into Gold with Jaggerspun Zephyr and got 1406 yds of a fingering weight 2ply.


Question from shing, “I’m diving into my deeply hidden WIPs to try to finish them up and find that I didn’t mark where I was in the pattern when they “disappeared” into the closet. Do you have a suggestion of what I can do, because it’s scaring me to even try!”


Pattern Collection Review: Date Night by Elegant Economy ($5-$7 per pattern)

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.
