Episode 28 – Matchy- Matchy

Please enjoy Episode 28! We are both sporting handknit shawls out of handspun, and we discuss all the usual items and talk about a couple of great books.

Shownotes to follow!

Our friend Lisa (Lazysockmonkey on Ravelry) is in the cheap seats and is knitting on the Saroyan out of some LaLa’sKnits Yarn.

Gaenor and Renita are the two new shawl patterns I got this week.  I can’t imagine why I couldn’t remember their names.

Laura is knitting on…

FOP square out of Cascade 220 (done and mailed!)

Cheshire Cat colorway ball being made into some toe-up socks from Twisted Limone Designs (1 down, 1 to go).  Her group on Ravelry can be found here.  Stupid floor eating my socks.

Leslie is knitting…

Primavera Socks out of Wollmeise in the Campari Orange in Twin.

Leslie is finished…

The wonderful Demeter’s Shawlette pattern (no bias whatsoever) out of Tempted Handspun in the Teal We Meet colorway.

Laura is finished…

The totally awesome Demeter’s Shawlette in Hello Yarn in the Cauldron colorway.

Forever old socks for Beck out of Three Irish Girls Adorn sock in the Quinn colorway (not to be confused with the Aiden colorway).


Laura is working on her trade spinning project. It’s kinda boring.  Leslie has lost her spinning mojo.

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.
