Book Review: Family-Friendly Knits by Courtney Spainhower ($22.99)

Question from KnittyKat16, Hello, Ladies! As I become a more prolific sock knitter, I want to stretch the yardage of my lovely sock yarn skeins with coordinating heels and toes. Since not all dyers provide these, do you have any recommendations for heel & toe mini skeins?”


Leslie listened to The Atlantis Gene and is listening to The Atlantis Plague now.  She read Full Domain, Found (brides of Kindred 4), and is currently reading Recurve, first in the Elemental series by Shannon Meyer.


Laura is listening to the second Charley Davidson series.  She has been reading the Mythos Academy series by Jennifer Estep and the Magnus Chase series by Rick Riordan.  She has also read Port Chicago 50 by Steve Sheinkin.

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.
