Question from lanois “Where is the strangest place you’ve knit?”
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.
“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.”

Question from AlilbitGypsy
Is gauge really as important as some knitters make it out to be?
Leslie has spun 12 oz this week for the Less is More cardigan, which she is going to convert to a pullover. She still has 12oz left to spin. So far she has spun “Don’t Blink” in BFL, “Godswood” in Polwarth, and “Take It To The Bridge” in Superwash Merino, all are Into the Whirled Fiber.
