Question from Patroth, “I am currently knitting on yarn that I love how it feels and looks but I hate knitting it. It’s silk and cashmere (cry me a river right?) but I don’t do lace and it’s super slippery. I have cast on at least four different projects and then frogged them. The current project is turning out fine, is a long tall cowl, but there is another skein! I need to use it because it’s way out of my price point but man I’m just not sure what to do with the yarn.”


Leslie is listening to Voyager .  She read A Hint of Frost (paranormalish romance)

Laura has read Squashed by Joan Bauer.  She is currently reading the sequel to Jackaby, Beastly Bones by William Ritter

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.
