This week on Ready, Set, Knit! Steve fills everyone in on the latest yarns which include four new (and exclusive) closeout colors of Noro Silk Mountain, three new closeouts from Filatura Di Crosa – Brilliante, Porto Cervo Spray and Zarella/Zarella Baby. We’ve also received Classic Elite Bazic as a closeout which is a great superwash wool with super pattern support.

This week, we had the pleasure to interview designer Kristin Omdahl who’s first book has just been published - Wrapped in Crochet. This book is a wonderful collection of crocheted scarves, wraps and shawls for every skill level.
Finally, Pixie & I finish the Inside Outside Scarf! The pattern is from the book Knit One Below by Elise Duvekot. The publisher’s, XRX, are offering the scarf pattern as a free download from their website.
