Episode 271

Leslie is working on plain stockinette socks in the RhineBeck Sweater Weather colorway of Nomadic Yarns Sport on 2.75mm.  She’s also been working on the Mitered Crosses squares in handspun.


Laura  is knitting Grace by Jane Richmond out of Plucky Feet in the Barn Door colorway.  She is also knitting on a pair of toe up socks out of Lollipop Yarn in the Beefcake base.  She also started a pair of top down socks out of Moonrover


Laura has finished a bluebird of happiness.  It was knit on size 2 needles using handspun leftovers.  She also designed Tesser for the Loopy Ewe October giftables club.  She is running a sale on Up and Out since it was her 50th pattern on Rav for 50% off with the code “fifty.”

Hello Yarn Romney


Question from Alexandra60 ,

“Hello from the land of OZ.

I would greatly appreciate a recommendation for a sock knitting book. I’m only just starting out knitting socks, but have been knitting on and off for many years. I have managed to knit a couple of pairs of socks by using only online resources (there is a lot of information out there).

Sock Architecture or Custom Socks (recently released I believe) are at the top of my list. Any recommendations or suggestions here?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.


Leslie is listening to Crown of Midnight.  She got her preordered copy of Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls from Amazon.  

Laura has finished reading Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh.  She has also read All Fall Down by Ali Carter.  She is currently reading Body in the Woods by April Henry and Zodiac by Stan Lee.

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.
