Laura is knitting on a  flax by tin can knits.  She is using size 6 and 8 needles and JoJoland tonic from the stash.


Leslie is knitting on a pair of socks out of Yarn Vs Zombies in the Sunrise colorway.  She is also working on Pumpkin Ale by Ysolda Teague out of Wollmeise DK in Campari Piccolo, and fixed what had to be ripped out last week.


Laura has finished a pair of very old Opal socks. She has also finished and blocked her baby sunshine blanket out of Schaeffer Yarns.


Laura has spun some Gale’s Art Naked Merino to ply with a Woolpierogi Rolags.  She has also finished the second bobbin of the Rain’s Obsessive Stitchery angora/merino blend.  She has resumed spindle spinning on her Jeri Brock hedgehog spindle and Vice fiber all stored in a Jan B Smiley bag.


Leslie has spun 4oz of natural colored Bond long draw on the Hansen and plied it, but hasn’t measured or soaked it yet.

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.
