Kind of confused about the tools of the trade segment.  What's the point of talking about products but not telling the viewers what they are called, who makes it, where to get it?

Frankly I'm finding this whole season of Knitting Daily TV disappointing.  Prior seasons I've found to be overall very good.  From time to time various segments have been some good others great and others a bit off.  But most all segments of this season I've found a bit blah.  I agree with Inlineclass below what's the point of the tools of the trade segment?  And then the Space to Space segment seems totally worthless as well.  So I think I'm going to not tune in this year at all and hope next season gets better.

Inlineclass is right. I see wonderful products on all these stitching, sewing, knitting shows, but the average crafter is never told where to get them   Give us the brand so we can search.   How can they sell something if we can find the vendor.

I do understand why they can't (won't) give practical information for tools and yarn because they want the company's to pay for the pleasure as an advert.  It's very frustrating for us viewers.  I guess some of us are finding it more useful to use sites like Ravelry and Knitty and find youtube videos.
