Episode 78 – It’s a Cakewalk

This week we run a little long! We go through our WIP’s and Spinning (No FO’s this week), review Craft Activism, talk about a bunch of our favorite things, and we show you this week’s giveaway – Cakewalk yarns!

Laura is knitting on a Log Cabin Blanket from Mason Dixon Knitting.  It is on size 11 (8.0mm) needles and knit out of Classic Elite Sprout. She also has on the needles some self-designed socks out of STR lightweight in the Fire on the Mountain colorway (size 1.5 needles) and a shawl called, Thin Ice, out of Tempted Good Grrl on size 6 needles. She also has some  cutest booties on the needles

Leslie is knitting on a new sweater using Jared Flood’s class notes about EZ’s sweater percentage system (You can find more details about it in Knitting without Tears).

No FOs!

Leslie is spinning on some lovely Miss Babs fiber in a Merino/Bamboo/Silk blend.  She needs your help deciding what to ply with it!

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.
