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.

  1. Another great videocast! It is something I truly look forward to every week. I’m totally jealous of Laura’s FOs and Leslie has inspired me to pull my Norwegian Rose socks out of time out and CO again. Can’t wait for the video chat on Sunday!

  2. RHINEBECK! RHINEBECK! RHINEBECK! 🙂

    Another great webcast! I <3 your FOs! Can’t wait for virtual stitch n bitch!

    I love seeing you actually knit! And downloading in itunes takes a while, but the quality is good and I like watching it “uncut”. Thanks again.

    Great episode! Just a quick note… Leslie was partially correct about Cannes… it is still going on (the lower profile stuff). Mr. Numma is going for the design part of the festival in two weeks – but Laura is correct that the most famous part was when good ‘ol Lindsey was awol.

    Can’t wait to see ya’ll in July… checking with Mr. Numma now – he has ten days in India/Turkey in July and I am trying to hammer out those dates. xo!

    I was listening to another podcast and The knitgirllls was recommended so I’ve been going through all the episodes – finally caught up to episode 12. Love your video/podcast, You two are SO much fun to watch and listen to! AND you both are such enablers – I find myself jotting down notes of things to go look for. Laura, thanks for the recommend of the Ilona Andrews books – I am a audiobooks addict, so now I have some other good listening. Leslie, I am also quite a monogamous project person – my maximum has been once or twice up to maybe 3. Thanks so much for such a great video/podcast!

    Big Hugs!
