Share Button

Hi Everyone

On this week’s episode of Ready, Set, Knit Steve discussed 3 new yarns in the store and 3 new closeouts.

New YarnsCool Wool from Elsebeth Lavold
Pima Silk Tonos from Misti Alpaca
Cotton Supreme Batik from Universal Yarns

New Closeouts

Nature Wool from Araucania
Tweedy Alpaca from Tahki/Stacy Charles
New Tweed from Tahki/Stacy Charles

I had the chance to catch up with the lovely Della Quimby of Della Q.  We love her needle cases and bags.  Not only does she create great products she is one smart and savvy business woman.  She’s just one of those people you just want to be around – even if it’s only 15 minutes via phone.

On Monday, we’ll be kicking off our Case-A-Month giveway with Della Q and I couldn’t be more excited so be sure to check in on Monday!

Because my conversation with Della went a little long, Pixie’s segment is a little short this week.  No worries – she’ll have plenty of time next week!

You can listen to Ready, Set, Knit! via our website or you can download the podcast on iTunes.

Enjoy!

    I love your show, Kathy and Steve and Pixie. I have been looking for the perfect case for my needle.

    Hi Kathy and Steve!
    I have to tell you first of all how starstruck I felt at Stitches. I have been listening to your pod cast for the last six months and enjoy every bit of it. Well, while at Stitches and at the Web booth I was searching for some Madaline Tosh sock yarn (yes, found it at your booth :O) and I heard a man talking and lo and behold it was STEVE! I had never seen a picture of him and had only heard of your voices while podcasting so it was a great surprise to me to see him. Of course I didn't go up and introduce myself but I did tell one of your helpers “Hey! That's Steve! I listen to him and Kathy on Ready Set Knit!” she of course shook her head and laughed. It was a great surprise. Also everyone there was so nice and ready to help. Thanks again.
    I also wanted to thank you for the Della Q interview. How inspriational and informative! She is really a go getter. I am hoping that she will come out with a stitch marker holder since we always seem to misplace those little notions when knitting. It would be darling to have something silky and pretty to remind me to put them back in when done using them.

    Thanks for all that you do and keep up the hard work. Hopefully, I will see you next year at Stitches. Now that would be a real treat :O)

    I just wanted to say that I really enjoy your blog and podcast (and of-course coming into Webs and seeing all of the yarn in person!) These needle cases sound really great

    Great interview (as always). I saw the Della Q cases in person at Stitches. They were gorgeous!

    I love your podcast and your shop. I have stopped at Webs on numerous trips to visit my son who was a student at Dartmouth and made my husband sit and read a book in one of your comfy chairs. Now I feel lucky enough to win a Della Q needle Case.

    Hi Kathy,
    I missed you at Stitches West last weekend. I have to say I love the Della Q bags. I have 2 but that isn't enough, :). They really are beautiful, soft, keep me better organized and I am so glad the needle size is included. I met Della at Sock Summit last year and that's where I bought my interchangeable case. I look forward every week to your podcast. Thanks for keeping us all up to date.

    Thanks for the information about DellaQ products. I've not been satisfied with the cases that I use for my circular and interchangeable needles, I will definitely check her's out!

    Right now all my needles are in plastic bags with holes in them or old metal cans. I would love a Della Q needle case. I listen to your podcast every week. It is like a visit to Webs for me. I live too far away to come often but I try to stop there either coming or going on all my vacations.
