Episode 61 – The Camera Adds 10 Years

Laura and Leslie show their active projects and Laura finally finishes the Pi Shawl! We review Fiber Gathering and Laura recaps her trip to the Dickson Fiber Festival.

We start out with the drawing from last weeks contest.


I’m working on a stripy sock out of the Amy Lee Show’s Canon Hand Dyed Yarn in the Arthur base in the “We are for the Night.” I also started a handspun bucket hat on size 11 (8.0 mm) out of the “Cheshire Cat” colorway of Dying Arts.

Leslie is working on the Senneh socks using the Silk Road Sock book.  She is using Hazel Knits in the Cherry Fizz colorway on 2.5 mm (1.5 US) needles.  Leslie also has leadlight on the needles.


Leslie has some socks out of Perfect Day Yarns

Laura has finished a big bulky bucket hat.  You can see the picture that Leslie is referring to here.  I have no recollection what the fiber was but I did knit it on size 11 (8.0 mm) needles.  I’ve also finished the Shetland Pi shawl(size 5 US/3.75mm needles) by Wendy Johnson.  It is out of Blackberry Ridge Silk Blend Laceweight. Yay!!!!

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.
