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.

    You both look spiffy with you new
    Haircuts….loved the show!
    Thank you. And Leslie, it’s OK if
    You get off topic…..friends like to know you better.
    A mix of both knitting and general conversation make you all that more interesting.
    Your friend,

    I’m fairly new to Podcasts, yours being the first one I ever watched and I’m so addicted it’s not even funny!! I’ve added many to my list of must watches and I’m finding myself being annoyed that everyone doesn’t post a new one everyday LOL.

    I’m finding that I knit so much better while watching podcasts than TV so I decided to go back to the beginning and watch ALL of the old episodes. That being said, I think in your first podcast you said something about having a friend who knits to bounce ideas off and I agree that you are so lucky to have that. I do have an online knitting friend but we have yet to actually get together and I’m hoping that happens soon.

    Sorry, I’m rambling, but I wanted to let you girls know how much I enjoy you and maybe one day I will get to meet you. Being in California we don’t have near the events that you do so, I have to live vicariously thru you.

    Thanks again,
    Debbie
