Laura is knitting on  a pair of Rose City Rollers.  They are knit on Nova Platina DPNs in size 0 and are out of Knitterly Things Vesper yarn in the Rainbow Love colorway.  She is also knitting on pair of socks on size 1 (2.25 needles). They are a pair of Two Sisters Yarn Company  Outlander colorway.

Leslie has finished Lilli Pilli out of Hazelknits in three colors (nickel, splish splash, and sangiovesse).  She also finished Bifrost by Cate Carter-Evans. (use code ‘knitgirllls’ if you buy one!)


Laura has spun 8oz of Hello Yarn Fiber in the Crivens colorway on Falkand.  She got 1050 yards of a 2-ply


Question from wwallet, “When you come to a join in your ball of yarn, what do you recommend doing?

a.) knit so that the join is hidden in the back and remains there?

b.) cut and rejoin the yarn

Why is one method better than another and why can yarn companies get away with doing this?


Leslie gave up on Judas Unchained by Peter F Hamilton.  She listened to both The Fold and Armada during/after SSK and then listened to Patient Zero.  Now she is re-listening to The Night Circus. She has read Magic Breaks(7th Kate Daniels), The Curse Giver, Cottonwood, and is finishing up Written in Red.

Laura has read One Good Dragon Deserves Another by Rachel Aaron.  She has also read (and loved!) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Favorite Things:

There will be a separate thread for FO’s from either the yarn or the fiber with all entries due by 8/31.

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.
