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 wish I looked as good in hats as you do .
    Laura, love the pattern of the hats. I made one for a baby shower
    And I plan use that pattern again…liked your variety.
    Leslie, this is totally none of my business BUT, I’ve noticed the ring on your left hand is different, it looks a
    lot like a wedding band. Is there something you haven’t told all of us who love you?
    Great show, again. Thank you,

    I loved everything about the show and am now a devoted follower. Thanks especially for your tip on The Secret Garden, which I loved reading when I taught intermediate grades. I’ve just downloaded it onto my iPod; perfect relaxation reading!
