    Loved the interview and those yarns are to die for!!! Cat that is a lovely red shawl you were wearing for that interview. Is it a pattern I could get? I would love to make one of those for my mother-in-law. So beautiful.

    I like seeing all of your videos, especially the ones of you knitting. I miss seeing the regular videos. When will you be bringing those back?

    Daisy and Julie,
    We appreciate your feedback. I’m glad that you’ve been enjoying these interviews. Back in June 2010 we interviewed over 20 people and in order to make sure that the information was as timely as possible, we’ve been putting these out as quickly as we can.

    Thanks so much for watching!

    Cat,
    What an enjoyable interview. I’ve never worked with luxurious yarns and now I can’t wait to try some. Thank you.

    My favourite summer project is dishcloths. Portable, light and can be mindless or complicated, they’re perfect for the busy seasons, plus I can get ahead on Christmas gifts :)

    I’m going to hunt down those Kollage circulars right now :)
