Question from lizzlizzlizz

I’d love to hear about some of your pre-podcasting knits, and maybe a recap of your favorite FOs you’ve made. What have you worn/used the most? I also love hearing about inspiration- who do you stalk for inspiration? Is there anyone who always has great taste in patterns that you follow? What tv shows or movies are your favorite to knit to? How has podcasting changed your knitting? Obviously Leslie is less of a monogamous knitter, but has it impacted y’all in other ways?

Basically you guys could read out of the phone book and I’d listen. I hope your technology issues are resolved soon! I can’t imagine how frustrating that is!

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.

    Just a helpful tip: When knitting 2AAT socks from the inside and outside of a cake of yarn – pull the inside end from out of the bottom of the cake and it won’t allow the outer yarn to wrap around it =)
    I’m currently knitting with Blue Moon’s Socks that Rock (I love, love their sock yarn) and using this handy trick!
