She started the Curiouser and Curiouser stole using size 3 needles and WM Lace in the Verhext and verratzt. She is  done with clue 2 of the Kirsten Kapur Mystery shawl and 10 rows into clue 3 of 5. She is using size 6 needles and WM pure in the Elfe colorway.  Laura is also knitting on a pair of Wendy Johnson gusset heel socks from the toe up out of Regia Fluromania.

Leslie is knitting on Skyp socks in Caterpillar Green’s Concrete & Tulips colorway.

Laura has finished nada

Leslie has finished Lichen out of handspun from Into the Whirled.

Laura has spun all the singles including 4oz of Hello Yarn American Wool on Whales and Ships and Icebergs.  She has also spun 2.3 oz of Hobbledeehoy battlings and plans on spinning some natural Jacob from Ross Farms to ply it with.

Leslie has spun half of a 4oz braid of Gale’s Art 100% Merino on the mini spinner as well as some secret spinning.

Question from NancyGrillo:   Since you answered my yarn club question, I thought I’d press my luck and try another: sock heels. There seem to be so many out there. I’m a traditional heel flap girl and I’ve perfected my own vanilla sock pattern so they fit fine. But curious about which ones you use and in what circumstances. Afterthought for self-striping, etc..Sorry if you’ve already covered this – I only started watching about 8 months ago. Thanks.

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.

    Hi there, can you please remind me the name of the group you talked about that has a list of good sock patterns for variegated yarns? I didn’t make a note of it and thought I might find here but nada.

    Thanks so much ladies! Love the podcast!
