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.

    Love the podcast! Yours is the first video podcast I watched and I look forward to it each week. Thank you! Also, huge thanks to Leslie for helping Melissa fron Singlehandedknits with her podcast. Thank you for helping the knitting community to be even a more connected, friendly place!

    I love watching and knitting along with you two. The sound of Mr Awesome hammering in the background reminded me of listening to my babies heartbeats many moons ago, now my babies are chronologically, adult. Hmmm

    I actually think that buttoned poncho-thingy looked great on you, Leslie! It looks cute! And gorgeous colors on you, too! So try to wear it a little now and then – maybe it will feel better for you in a while? =)

    I LOVE all the stuff you guys show us every week, too! =)

    Best wishes, Mona mono

    Okay, maybe I am having an off day, but I can’t find the fundraiser for My Hope. Is there a link somewhere that I missed? I wanted to purchase Laura’s beautiful shawl pattern, but mostly I wanted to say a big thank you for all of the inspiration you two shower on all of us. I love, love love the podcasts and think you two are the best.

    I’ve missed you guys. I’m not done watching, but classic line so far that made me laugh out loud – in regards to the swatch: “I haven’t washed it or blocked it or carried it around and called it George yet!” 🙂

  8. Rebecca says:

    I have just discovered your pod casts and I enjoy them so much that I’m going back to the beginning and watching them all. You two crack me up! Thanks for all the work you do getting them out there.

  9. Just found your blog and am really enjoying it. My daughter and I love the green shirt with the rainbows and unicorns. Where did you get it? sorry I know random.
