Episode 301- There Was No Cake

Episode 301


Leslie is knitting on a Celadon out of Neighborhood Fiber Studio DK in the Shades of Umber gradient paired with Mondawmin.  She also has been working on the Evenflow by Joji Locatelli out of Must Stash Sweater Girl yarn in Queen of Hearts colorway, slightly modifying the front band and pockets.  She started on a random bulky blanket of indeterminate design in an attempt to put a dent into stash dash.

Other shawls we want to knit:







Laura is knitting a pair of Hermione’s Everyday Socks out of Black Trillium Fibres Merilon Sock in Phantom.  She has also started a pair of toe up socks with a fish lips kiss heel out of Berry Colorful Yarnings in the HP colorway.   She has also knit on a barn raising square out of wm pure in graf ratz. She is starting a pair of socks out of Desert Vista Dyeworks in the Zombody Loves the Knitgirllls colorway.


Laura has finished all the baby things.  She knit a Bella Rose using size 7 and 6 needles and Tosh Vintage in the Rose colorway.  She also knit a Milo out of Skein DK and another out of Gales Art DK.  She knit a Like Sleeves for Babies out of an unknown fingering weight yarn (pre 2008 stash)


Laura and Leslie have been spinning nothing this week.


Question from Nightowlknitter, “I’m in the process of designing my perfect knitting essentials accessory kit (darning needles, tape measure, scissors, etc). I was wondering what you two considered the perfectly stocked kit for knitting. Also for spinning.”


Leslie is listening to Mistborn, Kobe is listening to the Timebound series by Rysa Walker and reading the third in the Lockwood & Co series, and has started the Mercedes Lackey Arrows Trilogy.  Laura has been reading Shepard’s Crown by Terry Pratchet.

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.
