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.

    Hey y’all! I really want to start spinning and I already hav a spindle to start with. Can you give me any clubs I can get some fiber from ravelry for a pretty good price? Thanks<3 y'all!

  2. The reason centaurs need socks:
    They of course have no feet, only hooves, so they have feet envy and secretly collect socks, and hand knit socks are the best and all collectors want to the best.

    Great Show! Thanks 🙂

  3. Ann aka Realmessy says:

    those socks could be called BiPolar or Switcheroo

  4. brenda says:

    hmmm, how about calling those socks “comings and goings” or “flip me”. Those cowls are lovely the colors suit you both so well. Leslie, you must find out what yours is made of, it is so amazing.

  5. Ana says:

    It was so fun watching you open your presents! The cowls are GORGEOUS! Can’t wait to find out what Leslie’s pattern is called…….Name for Leslie’s socks? How about “Ambivalence”? It means ‘simultaneous conflicting feelings’……….they are beauiful…love the striping……

  6. Squee! I’m so glad you liked your gifts! Thank YOU both so much for the awesome podcast every week. Have fun on your travels!

  7. Erin says:

    Two For The Price of One….sock name

  8. Marisol says:

    Great episode, how about “reversible socks”

  9. laura sequeira says:

    Just so you know–y’all are reaaaaally bad for my bank account. Because you all show amazing fiber artists and bag makers and blogs and….well, I bet I pause the show at least 4-5 times a week. I have bought from many of the people you talk about and showcase. To a person, they are so very nice and helpful. I love getting pattern ideas and book reviews too. Really enjoy your show. And you are the first one I have ever watched.

  10. Thank you for the wonderful review of the Crafter’s Tool Butler gals! You were so thorough on hitting all of the features. I love that you’re such a long time fan of my bags and that you own the “original”.

  11. Mim58 says:

    Oooh! Such enablers you are! The patterns in Patty’s e-book are beautiful, and I’m loving the extended size range of the sweaters. I think Colorshift yarn may be my birthday present to myself. The timing would be about perfect. Thank you so much for your helpful and honest reviews of patterns and products. Have fun at Stacy’s!

  12. Anna L says:

    Ya’ll are so wound up this week. Really enjoyed the podcast felt like hanging with friends. A couple of times I almost threw in my 2 cents worth. As for the socks maybe “In and Out”, “Roundabout”, althought I like “Ambivalance”.

  13. Casey says:

    Thank you guys so much for the wonderful things you had to say about my project bag! I think that any time I’m feeling mopy from now on, I’ll just play that segment over and over again.
    I love watching every week. It always feels like a mini-Knit Night in my own home, and I can’t wait until the next episode!

  14. aundy says:

    mmm socks … socks … socks … name the socks … socks to the right, socks to the left, socks that i love the best

    love all of the goodies you share

  15. Kelly N says:

    Great episode girls. I’d really like to find out the name of the pattern for Leslie’s cowl. Its gorgeous!! So is Lara’s!! You two have some great friends.

    Oh, here’s a name suggestion for Leslie’s socks – twofer. As in two fer one.

  16. Michelle says:

    whew! ok I’m finally caught up on all 97 episodes! Thank you for your company and for being the real deal! Youre my kinda Knitgirls! Lala…. lovin’ the 1st clue; my cuffs are AWESOME!

  17. Rhonda Cary says:

    How cool that the picture blog got turned into a book!!!
    When she started that it made the rounds of the scrapbook boards because the photos were so awesome!
    I always wondered how she was able to do all that and not wake the baby, lol!! 🙂

  18. Leslie,

    I think you should call the socks “Socks for centaurs.” LOL

  19. Laura – you know that hat on my blog banner is the gradient Fiber Optics braid I bought when I was with you and Leslie in Kentucky. I saw that you have the exact same one – layered golden fuschia – or something like that. If you make that same hat I will be so happy to see one like it again since mine has vanished.

    It’s so funny because I get asked about that hat and yarn all of the time from that banner.

    I joined your mittens for me kal but haven’t started yet. I need to get the yarn and I need to finish some deadline knitting first. The first clue is wonderful.

    Hope you are well! Hi Leslie, too!!!

    You are cute, cute, funny girls!!!

  20. Enid Mary Shaw says:

    5 stars, as usual!!!
    Ditto all the above comments, no need for me to repeat. enjoy your trip and be safe

  21. Marlene says:

    I’m new to theknitgirllls and this week caught up on all the previous episodes. Now sadly, I must wait for each new episode! The cowls were great! Leslie, how about “outside-in socks” for your socks? Or “double-up socks”?

  22. Julie Jaco says:

    Love, love your podcasts and Laura you fingerless mitts are wondermus!!!

  23. Loved the show as always! You both are just too adorable for words! Thanks so much for giving Knitting Brooklyn a mention . I feel like I got on Oprah’s ‘Favorite Things’ show that she use to do…. you guys are awesome :0)

  24. stephanie gordon says:

    Hi Leslie, How bout calling the socks “Have It Your Way Socks”? ( : Good luck naming them – what a neat pattern!!! Love the show! Stephanie

  25. Jodi says:

    Hi ! I am so in love with your show, thank you both for sharing your lovely selves every week. I had to stop the podcast to check and see if this was taken, but how about the name Bi-Socks-Y’all ? I cracked myself up when I thought of it. Hope you get a knock out of it, and I cannot wait to try the pattern. Have a fun safe trip,
    Jodi

  26. Jodi says:

    I meant to say “I hope you get a KICK OUT OF IT” damn predictive text on my IPad!

  27. Maryse says:

    You guys have been spoiled 😉 It is so nice to see all the sharing in our community! Nice episode again!

  28. Sue (craftyknitter7) says:

    I am so glad you like my cards, I love making them!

  29. Rowena Philbeck says:

    Really enjoyed this podcast. I love all the things you are making. I work 2 jobs and you are my MY Time…Thanks for everything and enjoy watching you in the future.

  30. Hi Knitgirlls! I’m dying to treat myself to some Signatures 🙂 I like to use 5 DPNs for my socks. Do they sell individuals? So I can purchase a set plus 1?
    LaLa…. Lovin’ the Mittens for Me KAL! Thank you again; friends are VERY impressed with the Latvian Braid 🙂

  31. Karen (kcfrail on Rav) says:

    Sock name Idea – Palindrome

    A palindrome is a word that is spelled the same forward and backward. (Wow, Mom, level, radar)
    Since your socks can be worn either knit or purl side…
