Episode 309 – Do it Live!


Episode 309

Leslie is working on on Stripe Study, using Wollmeise Twin in Neptun and Leading Men Fiber Arts Cherry Pie to London Fog Gradient.


Laura is knitting on Rocketeer by Woolly Wormhead.  It is out of the Bambeanies book.  She is knitting it on size 9 needles out of Lorna’s Laces Cloudgate in the Mantis Shrimp colorway (A Good Yarn exclusive).  She is also knitting on a pair of Fish Lips Kiss Heel socks out of Nomadic Yarns in the McGonagall colorway.


Laura has finished a pair of sock out the Everybody Knows Your Name colorway from Desert Vista Dyeworks.  She used size 0 needles and the 64 stitch count version of Vanilla Reversed by Anneh Fletcher.


Laura has been processing some Merino cross fleece.


Leslie has spun ⅓ of a braid of Polwarth/silk from Three Waters Farm in the Antique Portrait colorway on the new Schacht Flatiron.


Question from luciejwill, “Hi lovely ladies, I am a new watcher and am binge watching the older podcasts. I am amazed at the gorgeous sweaters and cardigans you have knit yourselves.

I want to knit myself a sweater but have never made one before. Would I be better knitting a child size sweater to learn the techniques or just jump right in and knit something easy in my own size.

I have been looking at Flax by Tin Can Knits and it ‘looks’ fairly simple – would this be a good one to start with?”


Leslie is listening to Enchantress by James Maxwell and Ten Below Zero by Whitney Barbetti with Kindle Unlimited.  


Laura has read Born of Legend by Sherrylyn Kenyon and Rock Wedding by Nalini Singh.  She is currently reading Rogue not Taken by Sarah MacLean and Lord of the Fading Lands by C. L. Wilson.

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.
