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.

    What a great gift! If it was the lace knitting book by Margaret Stove, then you know you are in for a treat for the kit to work one of her designs. If you would like to hear her story in her own words, she was interviewed by GrannyG’s podcast here: http://www.grannygcrafts.com/?p=92

    I think y’all need to brainstorm a closing tagline for the podcast. And I have no idea what it should be.

    Yay for the duo back together again, too! Woo!

  4. Thank you so much for suffering through the heat. As always I enjoyed my time with you and it was great to hear a bit about TNNA. I’ve always wondered how that works. I’m not a spinner but I can tell that’s going to make some lovely yarn. Take care and catch you next week. Man I wish I was on summer vacation like Lala and could do all this knitting! Lucky girl.
