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 style you are putting into your videocast. The side-by-sides zooming in are great additions and the sound has settled down. Good job. Of course, the content is top-notch as usual. :)

    Thanks for the birthday well wishes girls! Love the new format. You know La-La will now time how long she is featured in the larger screen! She just quit counting how many pictures we have of her versus her sibling up in our house.
