Episode 194 – Priorities, Yo

Episode 194

Laura is knitting on some plain afterthought heel socks out of Vesper Gemstone on size 1 (2.25) needles.  She is also knitting on Glitz at the Ritz by Helen Stewart using Made in America yarns Wayfarer and size 6 needles

Leslie is working on the Magic Cake Ruffle Shawl by Paula Emmons Fuessle on a size 6/4.00mm.

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.

Question from  knitoday

“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.”

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.
