Episode 78 – It’s a Cakewalk

This week we run a little long! We go through our WIP’s and Spinning (No FO’s this week), review Craft Activism, talk about a bunch of our favorite things, and we show you this week’s giveaway – Cakewalk yarns!

Laura is knitting on a Log Cabin Blanket from Mason Dixon Knitting.  It is on size 11 (8.0mm) needles and knit out of Classic Elite Sprout. She also has on the needles some self-designed socks out of STR lightweight in the Fire on the Mountain colorway (size 1.5 needles) and a shawl called, Thin Ice, out of Tempted Good Grrl on size 6 needles. She also has some  cutest booties on the needles

Leslie is knitting on a new sweater using Jared Flood’s class notes about EZ’s sweater percentage system (You can find more details about it in Knitting without Tears).

No FOs!

Leslie is spinning on some lovely Miss Babs fiber in a Merino/Bamboo/Silk blend.  She needs your help deciding what to ply with it!

Laura is spinning some Frabjous Fibers in the Ink colorway of their glitter blend.

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.

    Love those Cakewalk Yarns! I’m definitely going to visit her shop.

    • Kim says:

      Wow, Leslie, you have a hard choice to make, there! I like the first one with the muted colors but I equally like the third one, with the more similar colors, the grays and reds…….good luck! I don’t think you will go wrong with either of those combinations…..

      I am so enjoying you and Laura, each week. I look forward to meeting you, this summer, in Nashville!

    • Allison H says:

      Thanks for another fun episode. Going to check out the cakewalk yarn!!

    • Roz jones says:

      Yay

      Another long episode

      Roz

  2. What weight is the Socks that Rock that Laura was working on? I have a pair of socks in the same colorway made with the medium weight.

    I’d like free yarn!

  3. Kristy says:

    I’m so glad you guys said something about the Malabrig”u” thing – I kept wanting to tell you there was an O at the end, not a U!

  4. Suzanne Marie says:

    The cakewalk yarns are awesome!
    I am looking forward to the spin along

  5. Debbie says:

    I loved the episode as usual. Laura the shawl you are designing is wonderful. Can’t wait to get the pattern. And Leslie, I loved the pinafores you made. I do a lot of charity knitting and sewing and think they would be cute to send in a package. Thanks for the fun show.

  6. Knitphomaniac says:

    Love yarn contests especially when I’m on a yarn diet LOL

  7. Momma2Be says:

    Another great episode! Y’all make monday mornings so much easier!

  8. Teresa says:

    I really love the rusty train car color – going to go see what is in the shop. Would love to win the yarn!

  9. Heather says:

    The Cakewalk yarn is beautiful! I can justify buying more yarn with the discount code. lol

  10. Joy says:

    I so NEED that yarn!!

  11. Jessica Peled says:

    Hi guys! Great show as always! Laura- i love the “Thin Ice” shawl!! So beautiful! Leslie- personally i liked choice #4, the pink fiber to spin with the gray. i really like that color combo.

  12. folksmith says:

    I will be sure to check out the Cakewalk Esty shop. Free shipping is awesome, you are right, if it’s free it makes it easier to purchase more ‘stuff’. Love the length of your videocast…the longer the better!!!

  13. Sandy Z. says:

    Great episode! Thanks!

  14. Julie says:

    I can’t wait to find out who the dyer will be for the SAL fiber…

  15. Lorraine says:

    Thank you both, this episode really cheered me up after a “strange” day.

    All four choices of Leslie’s roving look good to me, but I would probably opt for the “Mars” (red and grey), it looked so good!

    Love the Cakewalk Yarn! :)

  16. Geknitics says:

    I’ve browsed Cakewalk’s shop a few times, but haven’t made any purchases yet. That sampler pack would be a great way to try her yarns. :)

  17. Lisa Allred says:

    I enjoy sending time watching your show. You do a great job, and have good information to share. Thank You!!!
    I like the first fiber you showed, it will look great with the gray.
    Thank You
    Lisa

  18. Jean says:

    Hi Yall!!
    I love your podcast and actually caught it a work today…Leslie the pinafores are amazing and your sewing skills are something you should be very proud of. Laura….I would love to see a photo of you dressed up for the school day that you spoke of. It shows that you really love what you do. The Cakewalk sample pack in genius!! Well enough chatter for now…work in waiting :) Have a super week both of you

    Jean

  19. Jackie says:

    Hmm, for what to ply with the Miss Babs, I vote for the Mad Monet fiber; however, I am surrounded by poster versions of Monet’s waterlilies, so perhaps I am a little biased. And I am a fan of green. Green Aran weight cowl, oooooooo.

  20. TracyB says:

    Thanks for including us non-spinners in the next spin/knit-a-long!

  21. Enid Mary Shaw says:

    5stars!!!!!!

    Leslie, the cardigan has grown much in a week, especially as you work full-time. I am not colour or fibre savvy, so can’t advise which you should use.
    The aprons are fine. and made in such a short time.
    Laura, thanks for answering my question. I understand about going past a certain point. Did so myself this afternoon while watching this episode!! you pair are so entertaining!!!!
    RamblingSam is good for a newbie, but don’t expect me to sound like her. She comes from a posh area.
    Where is the giveaway section?
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  22. ChristiD says:

    Pick me!! Pick me!!

    Leslie, the Mars colorway is my pick!

  23. Ruth says:

    Another great episode – thank you both!

  24. Natalie says:

    Saw naturallyknitty’s project and it is so beautiful!!

    Enjoyed the show ladies.

  25. YarnSniper says:

    I like the first choice for Leslie’s spinning/ply project :) And feel free to pick my name for ANYTHING!
    Mmmmm, Cakewalk Yarn *drool, drool*

  26. Stephanie says:

    I don’t blame you for not parting with those great yarns!!!

  27. Lisa says:

    Love those Cakewalk yarns – saw TONS in her shop that I love too!!! So happy to hear that the Free Shipping code is good internationally as well! TWO THUMBS UP!! :) Thanks for another awesome episode girllls….you RAWK!! …Lisa :)

  28. Juliet says:

    Leslie – I think the pink yarn #4 would look beautiful with the gray. I am also working on the Litmas Lace shawl – my first shawl. Am loving it.
    Those cakewalk yarns are beautiful!
    Thanks for a great show, it brightened up my rainy Pacific NW afternoon!

  29. I’m finishing a huge baby blanket in cotton & acrylic for my newest grandon who’s due in November (blankie goes in the washer!) and would love to try a sampler of scrumptious yarn. You can pick my name anytime. Love your podcast and watch every week. Thanks!

  30. Denise Katz says:

    You guys are the best. I’d sure love to try the Cakewalk yarns…

  31. Chelsea says:

    Free yarn! woopwoop! The first think I thought of when I saw the log cabin was “WATERMELON!!!” – not necessarily a bad thing :) Oh, and kindly stop teasing me with fiber ;) I’m on a yarn diet for SSK!!!! Jeesh!

  32. Debbi Overweg says:

    That yarn is gorgeous! And I love the idea of a sampler pack – I wish more vendors would offer that!!

  33. Gwendolyn says:

    Love watching you guys, thanks for making my crummy day a little brighter!

  34. StacyLoves says:

    Wonderful podcast. Loved the episode guys, and all the pretty fiber.

  35. Eileen (emsres on Ravelry) says:

    Another fabulous podcast–the long ones are my favorites. Can’t wait to see how all that luscious fiber spins up!! Thanks to Laura I’m now itching to knit some Halloween socks.

  36. Kristen Machowski says:

    You both always make such lovly things. Ooooo I love free yarn.

  37. Hind says:

    Love your show, the pinafores are adorable. Would love a shot at that yarn.

  38. syd says:

    I’m thinking about making one of those pinafores – SO CUTE! And the yarn giveaway is awesome, the cakewalk yarn is just gorgeous.

  39. Sommer says:

    I would do the silvery roving with the pink/fuschia roving. I think that would turn out really fun.

  40. pawdua says:

    Loved the show, especially like the yarn for spin-a-long since I don’t spin yet, bad shoulder. Really cheered me up since we are moving and I’m sitting around surrounded by boxes of books. Even worse my entire stash fits in 2 twenty quart totes. I don’t think I own enough yarn to have participated in stash dash. Oh well, maybe I’ll win something this week and improve.

  41. Melody says:

    Those pinafores are so cute. I’ve got to make a couple of those. And the Cakewalk yarn is gorgeous, especially that first skein you shown. Looking forward to the spin-a-long….hoping to participate this year.

  42. DebKnits2 says:

    Love the yarn! Can’t wait for the spin-a-long.

  43. Phaye says:

    Thanks for the chance to win some awsome cakewalk yarn. Loved the little pinafores….cute, cute, cute

  44. Anna says:

    Great episode, and love the yarn!

  45. bellasocks says:

    Another great episode! Love love the cakewalk! Excited to hear that they’ll be yarn and fiber for the spin/knit along. SSK vendor list is awesome… Can’t wait to shop!!

  46. Katrina says:

    Another great episode ladies! I love the fall colors of that yarn, exactly what we need right now.

  47. Pamela says:

    Love the new yarns! I am off to check out that easy shop.
    Thanks for another great show!

  48. Eleanor says:

    One of your best episodes yet.

  49. Kristina says:

    I am so glad I found this podcast. Ya’ll are very encouraging and thanks for helping me find things to branch out and try. I have been knitting for about 2 years and am looking forward to the next episode :)

  50. Gilby says:

    Another great episode! Leslie, I like the third fiber choice, the red. Laura hope you’re feeling better soon. I am so excited about the spin-along. My new Ladybug and I are getting to know each other. I love spinning on her.

    Going to the Cakewalk shop right now.

  51. Dianna says:

    I’m looking forward to visiting this shop! Thanks for the giveaway!

  52. Jurnie says:

    I like the package with the samples of yarn. I’m theknittinggirl12 on Ravelry. I like your podcast. It’s very interesting. My sister and I want to do one when we get your age.

  53. t says:

    I vote for the Mars, grey and red fiber. The first one, the monet, would be my second choice. I’m afraid that if you ply it or one of the others with grey you’ll be dissapointd when those lovely bright colors are muted by grey. Feel better Laura!

  54. Erin says:

    Great show!!! I only found you ladies recently and have been watching an episode every night! I would love yo be entered into your Cakewalk Yarn giveaway.
    Oh, and I vote pink fiber!

  56. Geal says:

    love the colors of Cakewalk. thanks for all your hard work

  57. Isabel says:

    Leslie:
    I vote for the first fibre-match choice – by a long shot.
    I loved the pinafores and the fabrics you chose.

    Both: it was a great show.

  58. jan says:

    The pinafores are adorable!! :) Awesome episode, as always, and thanks for sharing the Knitrundig info. Great new video/podcast! I will definitely have to check out Cakewalk!! Loving the colors!!

  59. Shalanda says:

    Awesome episode as always. The sampler skeins look so awesome! One of my exceptions to my yarn diet is giveaways or gifts! ;-).

  60. lorraine says:

    super episode! the pinafores are adorable! i love the fact that they have no buttons or other closures on them!

  61. Kristin says:

    I liked the first choice of fiber to spin with your Miss Babs, based on the colors.

  62. Katie O says:

    Love getting ready for work listening to you two! STarts my day right… although sometimes I end up talking to you… but no one ever responds! ;) haha…

  63. ScotiaKnit says:

    I love the sewing segment you toss in every now and then. The pinafores are so cute. I’m off to buy the pattern! Darn enablers!

  64. Chrystal says:

    The Pinafore’s are adorable.

  65. Bee says:

    Thanks so much for your lovely LOOONG vodcast this week – I randomly had downtime today and it was great to fill it with something knitting related – especially since I stupidly forgot to bring my knitting! This is AFTER I purchased a bigger bag to be able to hold a knitting project as well as my work files! hehe Thanks again!!!!

  66. Ashley (Ishadow72) says:

    Another great episode. You guys crack me up!

  67. Bistitchualgal says:

    My vote is for Mars, Ohio State colors. Thanks for a great podcast, you two make Mondays so much better! :)

  68. Janet says:

    Great episode, as usual. Love the Cakewalk. Laura, your shawl is beautiful! Can’t wait for the pattern. Leslie, my vote is for Mars. Have a great week.

  69. Amy says:

    I like the first and last options for spinning.

    I do not see the widget for entering cakewalk yarns giveaway. Very generous gift to be sure.

  70. Angel says:

    I think the 1st color would like nice with the silver.

  71. Julie says:

    I’m also voting for the first option to spin, just love the colors. Question for anyone: How do you store your shawls- fold, roll, hang?

  72. Bobbi says:

    I look forward to your podcast every week. Knitting along with you both is so much fun. I’d love to try out the 1st skein of aran weight Cakewalk.

  73. Lucia says:

    Thanks for another great episode. I love that sampler pack from Cakewalk yarns! I will definitely go check out her shop.

  74. aprilshowers says:

    I’m confused about the Rafflecopter entry. It says there are only 7 entries so far but there are a lot more comments than that. I guess I just have to see what happens after I submit this!

  75. Janie (yarnyaker) says:

    I have some Cakewalk Yarns in my stash. Awesome stuff!

  76. Thank you so much for sharing the Cakewalk yarns. I will be checking out her etsy shop soon.

  79. Beckyha says:

    Thanks for a great episode, love the CakeWalk yarns, I’d love to win a skein. I also thought the pinafores were so cute!

  80. Beckyha says:

    Also, what was the name of the videocast Leslie recommended?? Thanks!

  81. Rebekah Frank says:

    You asked for opinions on what to ply with your 4oz of Miss Babs. Well, I think you should go with the Mars, though the Mad Monet is really good too. (Hey look! its’ the 2 you are vacillating between.) I’d go with the one that you can see yourself knitting with the most. If it were me, I’d choose the Mars.

  82. Kimberly Raby says:

    I would love to win the yarn. I watch your episodes every sunday and enjoy hearing about your projects and contest you have.

  83. I think that little sample pack is the cutest thing! Great show ladies, as usual.

  84. Vicki says:

    i have never tried Cakewalk yarn! I have the STR fire on the mountain that has started to be several things. Think I will try LaLa’s pattern when it comes out.

  85. Laura says:

    That sampler pack is so clever! More shops should do that!

  86. Theresa says:

    That is some gorgeous fiber, Leslie. I like the first one a lot, but I also wanted to grab the shiny and cuddle it.
    The cakewalk yarns look nice and I’m on my way over to Etsy to look at her stuff now. Too bad I”m on a yarn and fiber diet right now. It won’t stop me from looking though.

  87. Mary Keeler. AKA. NanaMama says:

    A great episode! Looking forward to a new spin-a-long. Lovely yarn.

  88. stephanie gordon says:

  98. JaLee says:

    I love the cakewalk yarn. I want to win!

    I love your show and the cakewalk yarn looks awesome!

  100. Katie says:

    Thanks for the nice long episode. I’m anxious to see your Halloween socks this year. On a side note, I know that Laura is a Steampuck fan and was wondering if she has seeh the steampuck socks pattern put out by Holiday Yarns. I think they are darling! Have a great week.

  103. Andrea says:

    I absolutely love your podcast as always. I don’t know why but this episode makes me happy. I’ve been listening to the same one on the way to work every day this week. Enjoyed the book review also. Watching your show has encouraged me to start my first pullover blouse next week.

  104. Jessica (showmeyourknits on Rav) says:

    Those pinafores are darling! I love them!!!!! Great, fun episode. Miss you guys.

  105. Gretchen B says:

    Would love a chance to win yarn. Feeling bad about falling behind on podcasts, but homework comes first.

    Leslie, my favorite fiber was the 3rd choice, followed by the 4th. I loved your pinafore dresses!
    Laura, I love those tiny booties you’re making!

  107. Janet says:

    Boy, my mind is spinning with all the little things I could knit with the set of mini skeins.

  108. Lisa Smith says:

    Man, I love you guys :)

    lasknit2

  109. Fran Walker says:

    I really like colorway #3 for Leslie to spin with the gray- I know that she love red and I think that the red and gray goes together- I really love the fact that you are sewing as well as knitting – Makes the show very diverse and interresting- I am sad that I have not gotten into SSK- I thought I might hear from you since 9/27 has passed but alas – I will still watch all your shows because I am a fan- love it!

  110. Roina says:

    Lovely episode once again! Thanks! :)

  111. ne-knopka says:

    Great episode!

  112. firedup says:

    Thank you, thank you and thank ‘yall for opening up the vendor market for SSK, I would have loved to attend the whole thing but am excited to check out the market as a close runner up. Also, I wanted to tell you that you have been a great inspiration to me to try spinning so I took a drop spindle class last night. It was really cool and a great way to dip my toe in the spinning water rather than act like a crazy woman and go out to buy a wheel with no idea of what I’m doing! Thanks!

  113. April says:

    The Cakewalk yarn is just beautiful! I can see myself useing those mini skeins in my beekeeper’s quilt. Thanks for the giveaway <3

    Michelle

  127. Roz says:

    I really love this podcast. Even though I’m in the UK I feel like I’m knitting with friends when I watch.

    Leslie I think you should ply with either the first choice – the muted rainbow – or the fuschia which was the last choice.

  128. Tracy Patterson says:

  135. jennie says:

    Loved this episode!
    Wish I lived closer so I could shop at the SSK vendor fair.

  136. ANN aka realmessy says:

    I love this pod cast, I love the fibery goodness you spread and I so enjoy you friendship. Sorry I had to back out of SSK – maybe next time.

  137. Jude says:

    I love the Long episodes!! Thanks for the segment on the Pinafores; they are so cute. I thought Pinafores were candies?? Well that is how much I know!! I have a friend with a baby girl. So I am going to get sewing on some of those!!

    I would vote for the Fiber Optic braid to pair with the Green/gray. But I am such a FO fan!! If she gets her store open in Cincinnati, you both are invited to come stay with me and we’ll go!

    I’ve never tried Cakewalk yarns, They look Yummy.
    Thanks for all you do,
    Jude

  138. Summer says:

    Great show yet again! I love your tshirt Lala.

  139. Ashley says:

  140. Amy says:

    Seriously, I think you guys get better EVERY week – so I suppose you will be keeping your promise for those who are just finding you now!

  141. Knittinangel says:

    I really enjoy your podcasts. I am new to knitting, ravelry and all of it, but I am LOVING it. A friend told me about you all and I’m so glad she did! Thanks for sharing with us!

  142. Denise Katz says:

    For Leslie – i love love love Ms Babs fiber and i think the Mad Monet looks great with the Ms. Babs you are spinning. Thank you Cakewalk for the lovely prizes…

  143. Laurie says:

    Thanks SO much for the plug! I have never sold so many pinafore patterns in a week and I’m convinced it’s because of the exposure from your podcast. I really appreciate it Leslie!

  144. Kathy 'KnitInPupLick' says:

    Thanks for talking about Cakewalk – had not seen before. Hoping to get to sample :)

  145. Lynn says:

    The Cakewalk yarns are very lovely! Thanks for a chance.
    Just found your site. Good reading!

  146. Suzanne says:

    Another great episode! :)

    Leslie: I like choice #3, but I’m sure whichever u choose will be fabulous!!

  147. Sandi B says:

    Finally made it to the latest Podcast. So excited.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win such nice presents

  148. ikkinlala says:

    Gorgeous yarns!

  149. Kathy says:

    I’ve been stalking Cakewalk Yarns Etsy shop for a while now – would love to win!

  150. Becky Holmes says:

    Leslie, I don’t think you should ply that fiber with ANY of the other fibers you showed. I think their colors are all too strong and will dominate too much. I just love that shade all on its own. But that’s just my humble opinion….

    Another great episode of course! What lovely sewing Leslie! Can’t wait to see what fiber you choose. LaLa, you always have a lot of items OTN but you always make a lot of progress on them! I love it!

    I love the longer episodes. You girls are such enablers!!!

    I spend so much money when I watch your show- but I LOVE the exposure to the new yarns!

    THANK YOU for another great show!

    I am so exciting you are going to have yarn for sale to go along with the spin a long! I wish I were a spinner! I wish I had one of those awesomely expensive wheels :o) For now, I will just have to spin vicariously through you two! I look forward to hearing more about the spin-a-long/ kal!
    Thanks for the Cakewalk yarns giveaway!

    Love you guys! All this talk about cowls has me searching patterns for my Bijou Basin buffalo yarn that I purchased at Sock Summit 2011…..unless of course I win some Cakewalk yarn ;-)

    I like the 1st and last color way and actually am leaning to the last color way.
