Question from wwallet, “The young lady that does my hair was recently diagnosed with cervical cancer. She is close to our family (cuts all of our hair) and is a patient of my husband’s. I have two skeins (but I am not opposed to using just one for this and saving the other for something else) of Madelintosh MCN in the Whiskers color way and would like to make her a special shawl. I am always knitting in the chair when she’s doing my hair and she always says, “What are you knitting today?” I think this would be special to her during her treatment. Can you suggest something that wouldn’t be lacy but would be cozy and say “you’ve got this”???”


Leslie is listening to Mistborn and reading the Fortune’s Rising by Sara King.  Kobe is listening to the Timebound series by Rysa Walker and reading the third in the Lockwood & Co series, and has started the Mercedes Lackey Arrows Trilogy.

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.
