Episode 11 – The One at Chez LaLa

Here it is – Episode 11. I had many titles for this one.

The One With Leslie’s 3 Chins.
The One Where My Hair is Unkempt.
The One With Lots of White Space.

However, I decided to instead focus on the positive and name it The One at Chez LaLa.

I hope you enjoy, and Laura will add shownotes later on. Done!

Shownotes by LaLa:

We’re at Chez LaLa today!

Laura’s Works in Progress:

The first of the Nashua socks is done and there is a wee toe on the second.

Norwegian Rose socks out of Dream in Color Smooshy (There’s been no progress on these and I’m not going to even pretend I knit a round on them this week)

Leslie’s Works in Progress:

Norwegian Rose Socks out of Numma Numma in Toasty Red Raspberry Jam andDragonfly fibers Djinni in blue spruce.

A boring dishcloth

Invisible secret knitting (We’d show you, but then we’d have to kill you)

Laura’s Finished Objects:

Laura finished her monkey socks out of Perfect Day Yarns

Monster Chunks out of random scraps of yarn.

Leslie’s Finished Objects:

Leslie talks about beading on her Shipwreck Shawl.  She promised me one out of Wollmeise lace if I ever get married.  I have video proof!

Favorite Things:

Perfect Day Yarns last shipment of the Dead Poets Club.  There is some pretty yarn and a Rose Knits bag (etsy shop link and Backwards Loop sells them too). Some other little treats too!

Play at Life Fiber Arts. I got roving and sock yarn. And she has stuff in her shop!

Hide and Go Sheep Stitchmarkers (etsy and shop)

Great new book: Knitting 24/7 by Veronik Avery.  You can find the tutorial on grossgrain ribbon on the Knitmoregirls


You get to met Senior Humberto.

Here’s a picture of Maggie (the dog you hear barking in the background)

Leslie finished her Vesper fiber and got some awesome yardage

Laura finished a 2-ply of Oriental Poppy from Play at Life Fiber Arts

Laura got the new spinning book, Get Spun

Tour De Fleece group is on Ravelry.  It’s lots of fun! (Do you think we should form a Knitgirlls team?)

Random Stuff:

You can find lots of knitting related podcasts HERE. Let us know what you like to listen to!

52 pair plunge is a neat sock knitting challenge.  The Yarn Harlot is doing a paperbag pair plunge which involves knitting a pair a month.  Leave comments about kal/challenge knitting.

Leslie has braces and now Laura gets to eat all her candy.  Yum!

Laura is going to try to record at Bloomin Yarns in Pittsburgh.

There may be a brief recording delay as Laura is going to celebrate her niece’s first birthday.

We have a group over at Raverly.  Go join!

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.
