Hello, I am new to this page and this show and I saw the show today and I was very interested in the episode that aired today.  The women did a crochet of a christmas tree with red metallic yarn.  I was wondering where I could find the pattern because I am looking for x-mas ideas and I really liked this one.  If someone can contact me via email and let me know how to find this pattern I would greatly appreciate it, thank-you.  



The show you saw today is Needle Arts Studio, which is no longer in
production. However, the website referring to the Christmas trees is
still live:

The tree is a Kathy Schenkel design, and she can be contacted at:

the remix Tshirt can look classy, it's obvious in the photo of the model with the astrakan yarn collar and white crocheted sleeves under a simple red tank. heads up, this is a funky take that worked without being cheap, well done!

We just started getting this program in our area. Unfortunately we kept loosing the signal. Usually when someone was explaining a stitch is when the signal would disappear. I love this program and also enjoyed Needle Arts Studio. I'm so glad we are getting these programs. I get to watch because I am recently retired.

I love this site... after waiting so patiently to be able to afford the extra channels suddenly I can't find any knit/crochet or anything close. :-( But I am very thankful that I can see what's new from this site! :-) :-) Thanks for the wonderful patterns! :-) :-) Pinka http://pinkap.etsy.com http://pinkap.blogspot.com

Imagine my surprise when I downloaded the Remix T-shirt and saw this lovely lady with her gorgeous tshirt sleeves....only to see her in her underwear! Would have been much more appropriate to see this t-shirt paired with jeans or slacks.

The remix t-shirt instructions would be vastly improved by showing a photo of what is meant by "weaving loops" as this is the techniques that is essential for getting the sleeve off to the right start and is the technique that is most likely to be foreign to the crocheter.

I really enjoy Interweave Crochet and would love to be able to watch your show but unfortunately we aren't getting it in Wales yet. I have only one request. More crochet please! Knitting is a wonderful skill, there is no question about that. But I crochet. I love crochet! It would be nice to have them both equally for those of us who only do one. Thanks for listening. By the way, Happy New Year! Sharon Long

I started watching Knitting Daily after the first season so I got the DVD to see what I missed.  In the third segment of this episode there was an absolutely adorable girl's cardigan on the model to the right.  Where can I buy this pattern?
