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.

    Hi Ladies-
    I checked the YarnPop website and LOVE the Totable Yarn Pop bag in green strips and dots. It’s just the right blend of cool and new and just a bit sophisticated…plus it would hold a sweater in progress.
    Thanks-You two make my week!

    Love your podcast, great way to find out about new products, not so good for my pocketbook though! I loved all the bags at yarn pop, especially the commuter bag.
