Question from seine1, “You often talk about “bases” when you are describing yarns or rovings. Can you tell us more about what that means exactly?”


Book Review: Knit Wear Love by Amy Herzog ($24.95)


What we are reading:

Leslie finished In Her Name: Empire by Michael Hicks(sci-fi), free on Amazon and loved it. She is now listening to the Princepts Fury (5th in the series) audiobook.  She also watched Outlander this week (first season) and couldn’t decipher half of what they were saying without subtitles.

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.
