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.

    Blocking question–Laura, how do you typically block a hat like the green Wooly Wormhead one? I was surprised when you said you needed to block it, because I knit a bunch of “in the round” baby hats and it never occurred to me to block that sort of hat. What’s your technique?

  2. Jessica says:

    Also, should mention I knit on the Featherweight cardi while watching this. I’m just saying.

  3. Sarah says:

    We don’t even have an open house. I am the same with the flying saucer, interested but not loving any colors. Whoops toddlers weren’t supposed to wear scarves? *snort* I am the same way with the phone 😉
    ah shit, I forgot Eureka came back! Blarg, I’m behind!

  4. LaLa says:

    Jessica, I tend to block hats by wet blocking them over a head, plate, or balloon depending on the shape I am going for.

  5. Jessica says:

    Over a head???? You mean, a head mannequin? Or a real head?

  6. LaLa says:

    I have a glass head I got from Pier One a few years ago.

    Great show! I’m also subdued from working nights but appreciate the “virtual”friendship. I may start a knitting group for charity. We have a nice meeting room at my church. And Eureka is filmed in my town! I haven’t even seen it, but I like Firefly, so I’ll try to hunt it down. Thanks for keeping me company while I knit.
