Laura is knitting on some plain afterthought heel socks out of Vesper Gemstone on size 1 (2.25) needles. She is also knitting on Glitz at the Ritz by Helen Stewart using Made in America yarns Wayfarer and size 6 needles
Leslie is working on the Magic Cake Ruffle Shawl by Paula Emmons Fuessle on a size 6/4.00mm.
Leslie has finished her mish mash handspun Knitting Olympics project. Basic pattern is ShellSeeker, color blending used follows the Less is More cardigan, and a split collar added on a whim and out of my brain.
Laura has finished 2 pairs of booties. One is Tiny Shoes by Ysolda Teague. She used Louet Gems yarn and size 2 needles. The second is EviePants AIO Bootie Pattern out of Lornas Lace Worsted and on size 6 needles.
Laura has spun some Moonshine batts in the Frankenstein’s Monster (250 yards). She has also started spinning for her Less is More. All spins are superwash Merino. The first 8 oz is Puppy Dog Tails by Southern Cross Fibre.

Question from knitoday
“I heard from your episodes that both of you have Hansen mini spinner, as well as a traditional spinning wheel. How do you decide which one you are going to use with a particular fiber: the mini spinner or a wheel? What is that crucial factor? Thank you.”
