In this episode they featured a woman who sells kits to teach young people how to knit and crochet.  Who is that woman and how can I get her kits?

Maybe it's my inexperience talking, but it seems Eunny often shows how to do techniques a ways into the piece but doesn't show how to start. The bias bands are a case in point. Do you start by casting on 5 or 11 and start immediately on the increases and decreases or do you cast on fewer and increase into the technique? The pieces she works on in the "Getting Started" segment don't have patterns available so how do I find out how to do them from the start?

How do I get the pattern for Eunny Jang's blue sweater she is wearing on Episode 710? This is a great pattern. Each of the gals wear such great sweaters. Could you post links to the patterns in each episode? I'd love to make some of the fashions they wear on the show! Maybe you could start with the current series and work back to earlier shows. THANK YOU!!!

Where do I find the pattern for the kimono(?) that Kristin showed on episode 710 during the Chain Reaction segment?  I know she has a similar one in blue that she is wearing during the opening credits but that one is different (I already have that pattern).  If someone could point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it!
