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.

    Leslie,

    I’ve been listening to your podcast for a while now and today your voice was clearer and louder than it usually is. Call me deaf, but I usually have to turn the volume up to hear you. Not this week. Yay!

  2. I just love spending me evening knitting or crocheting while listening to your podcast. I’m going backwards since you were a recent addition to my podcast list.

    You two are brilliant together. Thanks for entertaining me,
