Exchanging Fire Featured in “In a Sknit” Video PodCast!

Often in the wee hours of the night when I’m shipping out a large group of orders for the morning mail run, I try to imagine who the people are that these goodies are going to. While I’ve gotten to know my repeat customers over the years, everyone starts out as a stranger. So I enjoy writing thank you notes and gathering context clues from nicknames and addresses – is Kathy from Menlo Park a fun grandmother knitting for a passel of family members or is Bea from Berlin a young, urban knitter adding to her stitch marker collection? Who knows!

But the truth is, while my products are winging their way around the world, I don’t always know where they are going or how they will be used. So it’s fun to occasionally find a blog, tweet or Ravelry post about my shop, and boy was I surprised to find Exchanging Fire featured in a whole video podcast last week! Check out this clip of Kristi reviewing my digital row counters and mini french macaron holders below at the 30 minute mark:

It was so much fun watching them getting just as excited about my stuff as I do. Hee. In a Sknit is a video podcast run by two women in Illinois who are really cute and manage to simultaneously run a podcast and knit at the same time. This is not the same thing as just running your mouth and knitting at the same time, which I still often fail at doing. So go back to the beginning of the video and watch the whole thing – Sarah and Kristi are super relaxing and fun to “hang” out with virtually.

Exchanging Fire Stitch Markers Featured in Knitscene Accessories 2014!

I’m really excited because I have some super cool news to share with you – Exchanging Fire’s Red Riding Hood stitch markers were featured in this year’s special Knitscene Accessories 2014 magazine, which hits stands June 3!

The editors contacted me this winter about the Red Riding Hood stitch markers, which I love because they have a beautiful wolf’s head charm on them paired with reclaimed red jade beads. They invoke the dark and moody feeling that the original fairy tale conveyed. So I sent them in, and have been waiting and waiting to see when they might appear in print. And voila! Here is a sneak peek of the page they are featured on, right beside those awesome digital row counters I also have at Exchanging Fire:

The Knitscene Accessories issue only comes out once and year and is always jam-packed with the latest goodies and cutest easy-to-knit patterns. Some of the cowls and scarves this year are to-die-for elegant with a fabulous Art Nouveau style. The whole theme is Fairy Tales, so you should totally check it out.
