    That was another great episode. I love the comment that he said about the capelet project being only 2 balls and in-expensive to make. He’s quite a handsome guy and quite intelligent, you have to be to design 150 garments for one season. Crikey, I have been trying out designing my own afghan for almost 3 weeks now.

    I dont know about in USA but over here, the yarn is getting quite expensive and patterns are going up by pounds and not pence. Thank god for ravelry and their patterns.

    Another interesting episode – I fell in love with the Natasha Yarn – exactly what i need for my next project :). Pity – Yarn market doesn’t have the cream color anymore must be very popular. My wish list there is growing longer and longer – even when I had to pay additional 50 Euro – Tax when I received my yarn order. Otherwise the post guy wouldn’t give me my package :)… And I was surprised to see that YarnMarket have put 2 of my orders in 1 box so at least I didn’t have to wait for my 2nd order too long :). Thanks again and good luck :)

    Great job on this interview. I really got the impression that he is passionate about his work and committed to the brand. I was blown away when he rattled off how many designs are created each season, talk about pressure! Also, I’ve completed the survey. Hope to see many more interviews in the future.

    I love those capelets. Only 2 balls of yarn! I can’t imagine how he can come up with so many new designs. I’ve also completed the survey. Thanks for the great interview.

    I am so impressed with your spinning! I love the two colors you picked and I think they look gorgeous spun up. Will you be making something for Eric in the grey colorway? I remember him telling you he liked that one best. I will be looking forward to what you make with those. Good interview too.

    I really enjoyed this interview…primarily because Stacy really communicated his passion for yarn and the fashion industry. I have heard a couple of audio interviews with him, and they were good, but this one really communicated more about him and his drivers. I really liked that he had projects by the number of balls – I think that shows he is really considering the customers throughout the fun process of manufactuing/coloring the yarn and transforming it into wearables. Thanks for all your hard work.

    Thanks for another interesting interview. It’s amazing how a love for a handcraft can inspire to a business…
    but I’m REALLY CRAVING FOR MORE HOW-TOs on your show. Ideas: inserting zippers, buttonholes,into a knitted project. Altering a finished knitted sweater so that it fits. how to make decorative accents for knits. brioche knitting. knit/purl methods from all over the world. knitting for lefty. ways to get rid of left-over stash yarn. knitting without needles: how to use a loom, and things to make with them. Isn’t wool, just wool? What are the differences, anyway?!
