Episode 307 – Totally Cool Enough

 

Episode 307

 

Leslie is working on a newly cast on Fort Tryon out of Jill Draper Esopus.  She also cast on Stripe Study, using Wollmeise Twin in Neptun and Leading Men Fiber Arts Cherry Pie to London Fog Gradient.  She cast on the Stone Croft Shawl in Wollmeise Blend in the Little Red Riding Hood colorway.  She cast on Adirondack out of handspun from Lynn, but might change the pattern.

 

Laura is knitting on Kallara by Ambah O’Brien.  It is being knit out of Plucky feet in the Sugar Coated colorway and Republic of Wool in the Wrinkle in Time colorway.  She has also worked on some toe up socks with a fish lips kiss heel out of Nomadic Yarns in the McGonagle colorway

 

Laura has finished Wee Lima out of Another Crafty Girl Worsted in the “Hey, Can I Drive the Bus?” colorway.

 

Laura has finished spinning and plying the Three Waters Farm Corridale in the Homestead Purple colorway on the Lendrum Upright (380 yards).  She has also spun Hello Yarn in the Shy Creature Colorway on Rambouillet on the Ladybug.  

 

Question from A1dawen, “I’m not sure if this has already been asked (I ran a search in the thread but didn’t get any hits!). I’m starting to feel like a more advanced knitter, so I’d like to try my hand at designing patterns. What are your favorite knitting stitch dictionaries?”

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.
