Episode 80 – Knit Whatever You Want Day


Laura has started a Frostbite hat out of Cascade Ecological Wool from Hank of Yarn.  If you have time Glenna C. has a wonderful blog.   Laura is knitting an Age of Brass and Steam out of the handspun of Frabjous Fibers in the Ink colorway of their glitter blend.  Laura has on the needles some self-designed socks out of STR lightweight in the Fire on the Mountain colorway (size 1.5 needles) and also has some  cutest booties on the needles.  This yarn was purchased at the wonderful Sweet Sheep Yarn shop when I first began knitting.

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). She is knitting in on needles from Glass Pens.  Cowl out of the lovely Aran weight from Another Crafty Girl on size 9s.  She began a  Thermis out of her Cakewalk yarn in the Weenie colorway (she is holding it doubled).

Leslie has finished a square for Lisa’s Breast Cancer Blanket.  It was knit out of Cascade 220 superwash.

Leslie has plied some lovely Miss Babs fiber with Fiber Optic in the Monet.  She got 746 yards of the 2 plied together and 120 yards of just the Miss Babs.  Next on her wheel will be some Dyebolical.

Laura has spun 350 yards of a dk yarn from some superwash BFL from Numma Numma  for Knitting Pipeline’s Shaelyn KAL. Laura also has a 3 oz batt from on the wheel from Dawning Dreams and is going to start some Tempted roving in the Treehugger colorway.

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.
