Hi!  My name is Leslie Friend.  I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with my new husband and three children, Charlie, Libby and Andrew.   I started this blog in 2006 when my youngest child went to kindergarten.  It was, and still is, a way for me to share my passions and connect with like minded people.  A lot has happened in my life since I started blogging.  I've knit many sweaters and accessories, I've written patterns, I started a business, I got divorced, I traveled, I fell in love and got married, I sent my oldest to college, I put one house on the market and moved into a new one, I lost my father, I lost my dog and found her.  My journey has been full of growth and self discovery.  I've met many wonderful people and formed special relationships over the years.  For all of that I am forever grateful.

My archives are filled with some of my favorite moments.  Feel free to stay for a while.  You may find a knitting pattern that inspires you or a cookie recipe you may have to bake.  I just wish I could pull up a chair and knit a row with you.

If you have any questions, comments or need an ear to listen, feel free to e-mail me!
