Episode 221

Laura is  knitting on Polaris by Alexandra Tinsley.   She is using Indiestring Superior worsted in the Glitter colorway.

Leslie is knitting on a pair of Axis mitts out of Indiestring falkland worsted in the Beach Ball colorway.  She also cast on for a pair of socks out of some newly acquired Yarn Vs Zombies in the Sunrise colorway.

Leslie knit a pair of Waiting for Winter mitts by Susan B Anderson out of Woolgatherings handspun.  They look teeny.  She also seamed together the Schacht Zoom Loom critter Twodot, available from the Woolery.

Laura has spun a 3-ply out of Into the Whirled Falkland in the Prance colorway.  It is 400 yards of a heavy fingering  weight yarn.  She also plyed the Tom Baker Polwarth from Moonrover.  It is 200 yards of a chain ply.

Leslie washed the Romney fleece from MDSW and is almost done precarding it.  After that it just needs to be run through the drumcarder to make batts or possibly dizzed off into roving.

Question from Cruknitgurl, “I have a questions for the spinners out there. I’m relatively new to spinning and am currently working on a two ply merino silk blend yarn. And I keep hearing some spinners talk about snapping (???) the yarn after they finish it rather than thwaking it to prevent it from poofing/fuzzing up. I’m wondering what this technique is and how it is done? I have tried finding info on it and have come up empty handed and I want to use this technique on the lace I am currently spinning up now because I definitely want to keep its smoothness and a bit more of its construction.”

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.
