What was the alpaca sock yarn that Tanis Gray showed? I did not get the name and where is it available? There were two and I am interested in the one with the colorway Cedar

argh. I enjoyed the show.  But, how does this page help me?  New knitters cannot learn all this in a half hour, drive by.  Where are instructions for an afterthought heel?  Are they in the sock download?  I found the articles talked about by hitting links [I hate that I have to visit a bunch of pages for information YOU bring up].  I see from the other comments below, we all enjoy the show, but all feel whirl winded ....

I feel all you’d really like, is for me to buy your shows, and leave you alone.

As much as I enjoy the show, I, too, feel too much is covered in too short a time. And this website is a mess to navigate! I finally typed the episode number into the search window and got the series information, but video? No! Links to buy things? Yes! So is this program intended to really teach us anything, or just to whet our appetites so we'll go out and buy books, products, etc?  Fortunately I have my DVR set up to record every week, but still...

It would be amazing if Tannis gave us actual info on her tools of the trade... She never mentions brands or product names... What good is her telling me there is a great product for me but not telling me what it's called or where to get it?
