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.

    Laura–that Starving Artist out of your handspun is gorgeous! And Leslie, I totally snorted about baby cankles. You may know me pretty well. Signed up for the Loop bullseye batt club. I’m hoping that it will give me a chance to spin some crazy blends and to kick me out of my spinning comfort zone.

    That book looked amazing and I really wanted to know more about shawl shaping, so I went and bought it.

    The book iteself looks great – but what a “you know what” to print! All that black had the printer overheating and fusing pages – ughh!

    5 stars, Girls.
    Leslie, you are very patient to do so fine crochet. I much prefer to feel my hand is holding something when I crochet.
    Laura, the loop fibres are lovely colours. When you spin the batts, is the thread started from the inside or centre?
    Bet you were both glad to have a number generator, than have to write out on paper, then cut out names?

    Thanks again for another great vid. Please do a spinning video, I love the tutorials, you really are thorough in them, and being somewhat sort of newish I appreciate them. Congrats to the winner, have fun with all your yarn, I am a size 7 in ladies if you knit any extra pairs of socks that you dont know what to do with, :). Looking forward to next weeks podcast and please let us know what mr. Awesome was building!

    I love that book, as well as all her other patterns and I actually got to meet her at Rhinebeck it was kind of awesome. Even though I for some reason didn’t speak my own Swedish dialect with her, nit sure what kind I was speaking LOL.

    I am so bummed I missed the Cloudlover Entry…..Oh well, I never win these things anyway. Just wanted to tell you, I like the “flakes” you’re crocheting. About a decade ago, I got addicted to crocheting doilies and ornaments like that. I found that if the cornstarch does not stiffen enough for you, that Fabric Stiffener works great and so far after about 10-15 years it still has not Yellowed and they are still stiff as boards! Good luck with the exchange.

    I love how the homemade yarn skeiner looks like a little windmill when you were spinning it, Leslie. Also, Laura, thanks to you I’ve finally started knitting socks. Enablers, the lot of you! Now that I’m caught up on the archives, I’m looking forward to the next episode :)
