Leslie  is  knitting on an Evenstar out of Tempted Yarn. She got some beads for it from here .  If you would like to knit Evenstar as well, Susan Pandorf is offering a $2 discount if you use the code: theknitgirllls on Ravelry.  Leslie is also knitting a pair on Georgia on my Mind socks (pattern coming soon) out of Barking Dogs Yarns in her Opposites Attract base.  The colorway is Antony and Cleopatra.

Laura has finished  pair of Simple Skyp socks out of Socks that Rock Medium Weight in Sugarplum on size 2 (2.75mm) needles. She has also finished Chester the Bashful Bunny out of some deep stash Encore and size 4 needles.  She reveals the secret that she designed the final Fibernymph Dye Works Knitter’s Choice Club pattern and it was Into the Cool Air.

Laura is wearing an old headband, Dream Swatch Head Wrap by Wendy Bernard out of a bamboo yarn.

Laura is spinning  Unwind Yarn Company fiber in the Morning Sky colorway. Laura used Spin Art by Jacey Boggs to play around with autowraps around a core yarn spun out of Moonwood Farm’s Big Ass Kicking Batt.  She has also been playing with some supported spindling on her new spindle from Deercreek Creations.

Leslie has spun  Loop batt in the Ocean Breeze Colorway (372 yards).

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.

    First off, congratulations on your second podiversary! I am such a fangirl, because as I was watching this weeks episode, I was knitting a sock from Lollipop yarn, which was in my Tangerine dreams project bag (nestled safely next to my owl needle sizer), and a package just arrived from anothercraft girl, more sock yarn. And that’s just today!

  7. April Rahe says:

    Congratulations on your two year podcast! You have motivated me to try multiple projects, but the best is socks. I had never tried them before, and self stripping has been a great and fun experience. I can see that this will be a life long love.

  8. Valeria says:

    Congratulations with the podcast anniversary 🙂 I always look forward to you both 🙂 it’s fun to see you teasing eachother a bit and do it in such a way that is loving still that’s just the magic of the podcast. Being such good friends that you can have fun at it as well. Thank you for all the inspiring into spinning. I’ve got back into spinning because of all the spun yarns you show. Am not able to buy such pretty bats and yarns but that’s ok 🙂

    I just love watching and hearing you both and then knit at the same time, nothing difficult just simple knits because I’ve to look up often 😉

    So a huge thank you to you both for doing the podcast/videocast and being who you are and doing so much. It just makes my day to just sit, take some time for myself, knit and have a hour of me time that is so meaningfull to me. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!

    Congratulations on your 2nd anniversary! I’ve been watching you for only 5-6 months, but I’m addicted! I just love listening to you guys. You are my virtual-knitting friends 🙂 You have motivated me to try new techniques for socks (like Afterthought heel, toe up) and trying different patterns. You have also motivated me to try some etsy shops 🙂
    And most of all, thanks to you I have discovered a whole new world of knitting: your books reviews, yarn & needles reviews… etc, and other podcasters. I hope there will be many more years with TheKnitGirllls! I’m looking forward to it.

  20. Carrie P. (PinkPennyDesigns) says:

    Congrats on your Podiversary! I’ve been watching for a few months now and I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve had to pause the podcast to go out and look up a yarn or pattern. I did end up purchasing several yarns and the Hitchhiker pattern after seeing Leslie making one. I’m trying my first afterthought heel (thank you Laura!) on my current sock project. And I’m thinking about buying a supported spindle after seeing how pretty yours are.

    Congratulations on the podcast anniversary and a belated happy birthday to Laura! I am new to listening to your podcast (just subscribed about a week ago) and am really enjoying it. I have to say the Episode 103 turned me on to Barking Dog Yarns and OMG, I want to buy half their store especially those Opposites Attract colorways – thank you ladies (though our bank account will not thank you). I can’t wait to listen to more upcoming podcasts…
