Question from Thistledown, “Hi everyone – could someone help me with an Expand Your Horizons question? I have tried scrolling through to see what has been going on but can’t find much to help. Are we still doing the EYH? I got up to silk hankies and then I let time slip through my fingers and want to catch up now if it is still on-going. Thank you so much. xx”

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.
