Episode 487 – Late Is The New Normal


Leslie is knitting on Starboard Rock out of Stranded Dyeworks in Ice Skating Party.  She continues to put heels/toes in cranked sock tubes (cranked on our Erlbacher Gearhart Speedster)

Laura is knitting on a pair of Socks on a Plane using Long Dog Yarn and size 0 needles.  These socks are magic looped.   She has cast on a new sock tube sock out of KnittinBro Yarns in the Jawbreaker colorway with ocean blue for heels. She has also cast on Flax Light out of Urban Girl Yarns Sunday Love on size 2.5 needles.  She also cast on  a Bounce Blanket out of Neighborhood Fiber Co in Studio DK Belair and Shades of Turqouise.

Leslie put heels/toes/folded cuffs on two pairs of sock tubes.  Colorways are Opal Rainforest 15 color 9770  and Quaere Fibre 75/25 in the ‘I Do What I Want’ colorway.  Both pairs are for Kobe (size13 US).  I only cranked the Opal so that’s 400yds for SD2020.

Laura finished the sock tubes out of the Vesper April Showers Bring May Flowers colorway.  These were a 72 stitch tube that was cranked and then had heels, toes, and ribbing added.  She also finished 2 56 stitch baby hats (knit to 5 total inches and then decreases worked over 8 stitches).  These were out of handspun and left over cormo and knit on size 7s.  Laura also finished a child size Scrappy Smarled Slouch hat using Urban Girl Yarns, Dream in Color and Fleece Artist Seawool.  It was knit on size 9 and 10 needles holding all 3 yarns together.

Laura has finished plying the savage blend from Homestead Hobbyist.  It is 37.5% Mulberry Silk, 33.75% merino, 12.5% Shetland, 12.5% seacell, and 3.75% sparkly gold stellina.  It was divided in half and spun end to end.  It is in the Merman Christian’s Chesapeake inspired colorway. She got 314 yards (861 SD meters).  She also plyed the SSKescape fiber from 2 guys fiber company.  She got 300 yards of a 2-ply from 6.5 oz (820 SD meters). She finished some Romney batt singles from an unknown farm and will be plying those and the ITW this week.

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.
