Laura has finished  Orbit by Janina Kallio out of some Unwind handspun on size 8 needles.  

 

Leslie has finished a Quincy out of Shalimar Breathless Cush in Deep Lake, and a Pompeii hat out of Feel Good Yarn silverspun cotton.  She also finished another square for the Mitered Crosses blanket out of handspun.

 

Laura’s spinning a patchwork kit from Hello Yarn.   She has started plying a Shetland sweater spin on the S-R.  She has also been core spinning twinkle lights after watching the Jazz Turtle DVD, How to Spin Art Yarns

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.
