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.

    A great ending to the weekend. Loved seeing your first knits! I have kept all my epic fails as reminders not to get too cocky 🙂 thank you for another wonderful episode.

  2. Lesley says:

    Laura mentioned in the show that she wanted to borrow Leslie’s light box, but this is what I use now. I got the idea from Ashley Martineau at Neauveau Fiber Arts: Build[ing] your own Photography Lightbox for $37. Thought it would be an interesting fix.

    Thoroughly enjoyed your podcast as usual. A great way to spend time on the elliptical machine at the gym. I couldn’t keep my eyes off Leslie’s beautiful bun. It was absolutely gorgeous!!!

    I love your accents and can understand everything you say, and I’m from Canada! My family knows when I’ve been watching because the accent is contagious. We’re friendly here, too, often compared to labrador retrievers.

    I thought the whole dialect thing is to cute and to funny. I was born in Ill. and when I was stateside for my entire life it was in Waterloo NY. The magor part of my life was spent in Germany. For the last 25 yrs I have lived in Oklahoma and to this day there are words that I say that people say they can’t understand. I got tickled at the whole thing with Laura … I thought it was to cute….

    God Bless

    5 stars, Girllls!!!!
    I watched the ‘bun’ video and give Leslie much kudos for her result. No way I’d have the patience, willstay on tying back and using a banana clip.
    Laura, the Trail Jacket is very nice on you, and fits well.
    Lord knows where my original knitting is. Was a practice piece when being taught at school. Only got one knitted sweater in the wardrobe remaining, most of what Ido these days is given for presents or charity.
    Good luck with the library petition, I am all for encouragement to read.

    I never saw your first podcast so when you mentioned it I went back and watched it! You guys were naturals from the start. Leslie your teeth look great!

  8. Laura,
    I am German, I’ve never been to the States, I understand every word you say. Your accent is georgeous.
    I live in southern Germany, and most people from the middle or northern parts of the country don’t understand us either. Must be a southern thing. ;o)

  9. Shayla says:

    i was wondering if you or laura have ever posted pics (or videos) of your stash(es). the ones i’ve seen have been pretty big, to say the least. so i know ya’lls gotta be 10x’s as big! 🙂

  10. Leslie says:

    Hello Leslie and Laura! I loved your podcast as usual!! You guys are so informative and funny and just great to listen to. Laura….I understand you perfectly!! I think your accent is very cute and you are such a beautiful person inside and out! Leslie! I loved your bun! I am a perfectionist in my knitting as you are and it is such an encouragement to me to listen to you guys. Your podcast is among my top 5 I listen to 🙂 I am finishing my Thin Ice Shawl and I LOVED this pattern, Laura you are also very talented in designing.
    I just wanted you both to know that I look forward to your podcasts and I love you guys!!

    A southern accent is contagious. Several of my fellow Wisconsinites are transplants, and sound like they were raised with “y’all”. ANyway, I think it is charming, and have no trouble understanding you.
    Love your podcasts; thank you for making them.
    I am a born again knitter, after a hiatus since college. Just retired, and have started again. Currently addicted to socks. Might try spinning…you make it look so appealing.
    It s helpful to know even you more experienced knitters have problems, and how you solve them. Thanks for sharing the difficulties, as well as the successes.

    Had to run back to this video and say I LOVE WHEN YOU GUYS DIGRESS & LAUGH !
    The bun video was FUN! Appreciate your encouragements and sharing. Beautiful yarns, knittings & friends!

    Have you by chance finished the socks you were working on in this episode? I thought this was a SUPER CUTE pattern. I want to take a class on how to make socks soon. The lady that taught me to knit said it would be easier for me to learn the top down method first…right now the only class that is offered at my yarn shop is toe up.
