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 Leslie, Knitting daily TV, show number 1401 shows the effects of needle material on row gauge. In summary a metal needle 2 inch
    plastic 1 and 7/8
    wood was 1 and 3/4 for the same number of rows ( I think it was 10) . I know you don’t like wood, but it might be worth it for those cool socks. They look complicated to me!
