A new show with an all new format and a new co-host! Inspired by many of the podcasting "duo's" such as Lime & Violet and Stash and Burn, I've asked my friend, neighbor, and fellow fiber-enthusiast (Cheryl) to co-host the show with me. I still do most of the talking in this episode (Cheryl's dealing with a little mic-fright) but the next show will be MUCH more Cheryl and MUCH less me (I promise)!

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Petkun -- My name is XXXXX XXXXXXX and I'm writing to let you know that I adore your KnitPicks Options needles. In fact, I adore them so much that I'd like to formally beseech you and your research crew to design a crochet hook set that is as impressive as your Options knitting needles.
As I'm sure you know, crochet is extremely popular and there is a niche in the market for a high quality, smooth, and fast crochet hook set (such as your Options needles). I understand that the focus of your company is on knitting, (the name "KnitPicks" somewhat gives it away), however many crocheters patronize your site as well and crochet with many of your fabulous yarns, and would be eternally grateful if you could design and produce crochet hooks as nice as your Options knitting needles. Specifically, a crochet hook set (sizes B - L or there-abouts) that is as smooth and slick as your knitting needles would make crocheting much faster and enjoyable, and you would have many delighted customers.
I know that you and your staff need to have a sense of the market before launching a whole new crochet hook line. Not to worry - I will urge all my crocheting friends who've dreamed of crochet hooks as smooth as your Options needles to write to you. I hope you will see that the demand is high, and invest time into researching this option further.
Thank you again for manufacturing superior products, for listening to the needs and desires of knitters and crocheters, and for your willingness to evolve as the fiber-arts change. I appreciate your consideration. Please feel free to contact me with any further questions, or to request any additional information.
P.S. Being able to purchase additional hooks individually would be an awesome feature as well!
