Question from daisyknitter, “Hi udontcallmeles – I’m really keen to knit the Lilli Pilli shawl, I think it’s gorgeous, but I was put off slightly by the tension differences between the lace and the garter areas. I think I saw you wore it in a photo on Instagram (at Rhinebeck?) so I was wondering how it’s wearing now it’s in use? Incidentally it would be really great to have this kind of feedback/revisit on things you and Laura make and keep, it would be a nice follow on to hearing you talk about them when you make them.”


Leslie is listening to Outlander is re-reading the Mistborn series.  She read Burn for Me in less than a day.

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.
