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.

    *shakes fists* now I”m gonna have to fights for the gorgeous stripy yarn. gah.

  2. Beverly Love says:

    The spun singles and Wendy’s hank of yarn are gorgeous. I love the socks too. I have done some commission knitting and most people don’t want to pay for labor. I think mainly because they don’t realize the cost of good quality yarns and the number of hours handmade items take. I don’t do it any more, I refuse all offers.

    LaLa where did you get that t-shirt. I heart it muchly 8-}

  3. Marianne says:

    When I “sell” knitting I usually multiply the yarn price with 2,5 and the result is my price for the knitted object included the yarn. Here in Norway that workes well :)

    Another great episode, I spun BFL/silk and had a great time watching you :)

  4. Wendy says:

    I love love love the yarn you spun for me. Can’t wait to get my needles in it! :-D

  5. I’m so excited to see you both in December for the AFAE!! Yay!! Great FO’s and WIPs. And I totally love the yarn you spun for Wendy. If only your podcast was on every day like a soap opera…

  6. Alissa says:

    Dare I admit this? Our Sam’s Club here has Sunkist Fruit Gems in a HUGE package. I bought 5 bags at $3.91 each… i’d be more than willing to send you a bag. I might need your address though…

    • LaLa says:

      You will be my hero forever if you did :) Send me an email at llinnemaATgmail.com and I’ll send you my address ( and maybe a little gift in exchange)

  7. LoriAngela says:

    Great show. I had to watch it twice because there are non-knitters in the house.
    I don’t knit for anyone except as gifts from me because of an unfortunate incident involving “Mary Maxim” acrylic and a nasty angel blanket. Bad Karma.

  8. cici says:

    ever since LaLa showed us those fruit gems, I have been keeping my eyes open. I remember them as a child as well. I guess that’s why I like gummy bears so much. It’s the closest thing to them I could get. We don’t have Sam’s , but I am going to look in Costco. Btw…. Great Episode Ladies♥♥ I love all the FO’s.

  9. Suzanne says:

    Hi Leslie! Thanks so much for watching my first episode of Knitting Knirvana Video Podcast. :) I put the second episode up today and a shout out on yours would be wonderful. I started watching yours from the beginning. Love how completely different knitters the two of you are. Fun!!

  10. LaLa says:

    Just thinking about fruit gems is making me hungry. I love gummy bears as well :)

  11. Jessica says:

    I have knit quite a few baby sweaters on commission. I usually get paid about $50 for a 6 month sized sweater plus the cost of the yarn. My mom, who has a million friends and co-workers who are constantly becoming parents/grandparents, always hits me up to make baby hats, along the line of the Ann Norling rolled brim strawberry hat or various fruits, which I can kick out fast. Because she is my mom, I don’t charge her for the yarn and just use stash yarn, and she will generally pay me about $8-$10 a hat, although I know I’ve knit a bunch for her without charge when she pulls the “I nearly died giving birth to you” card. :-) There is no profit in knitting on commission; I only do it because I enjoy the process of knitting.

  12. Hey ladies-love your videos, just wanted to give you a heads up that episode 25 is not wanting to play :( I’m enjoying watching y’all from the beginning! Thanks for all your knitting :)
