Question from Cyancomet

I’d love a chat about wheels and what type of fiber you’d suggest for a beginner. I’ve been wheel shopping for three years and other then I know I want a double treadle I have no clue.

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.

    Cannot tell you how I look forward, each week to your podcast, and I don’t even spin! Just wanted to let you know, if you don’t already that Leslie’s volume is a lot lower which makes listening difficult. You are constantly having to turn the sound up and down depending who is speaking. Other than that GREAT JOB!

    New to your podcast & love it!! Wanted to say I’m also having a very difficult time hearing Leslie and I don’t have to adjust my volume because I have all settings on the highest level. I think it may be her volume settings or microphone placement. Good thing she smiles a lot!!! Lol lol
