Hi! How’s it going? This is a bit of a funny episode in that I don’t show any wips or finished objects! But it’s proof that I can talk for half an hour about crochet related things without showing you anything at all…
As always, click on the pic above to go to the episode or go to YouTube HERE for all the vids.
Oh my goodness, what a busy few weeks it has been! But I’m back and busting to tell you what I’ve been up to. I hope you can have a catch up with me! 😀 Click on the picture above to go directly to Episode 51 or go HERE to find all my videos. Links and pics below. Thanks ever so much! x

I used to be very good at blogging about garden updates but like the lack of green fingered posts on here, there has been a lack of actual horticulture too. I’ve nothing to write about! Unlike other years, no seeds have been planted, I’ve barely weeded, and only this morning did I dig over one of the veg beds. Time is more of an issue these days. I’m working more and don’t get the chance to pop outside to keep apace with the plants. But do you know what? It has sort of been looking after itself! I suppose I’ve given it enough attention in the past, that there is still beautiful stuff to see now. It’s OK too because I haven’t completely missed the boat. This coming weekend is the Easter bank holiday and I believe there might be some kind of law which dictates that one must do gardening during all day light hours over this four day stretch. I have time to catch up.
In the meantime, here’s what has happened so far this spring…
So despite having done nothing at all, things aren’t looking too bad. Yes, there’s mess but I’m not fussed about a neatly manicured lawn or the composting mountain of last year’s runner beans and courgette plants. But I will be worried if I don’t get my arse in gear next weekend. I’m gonna blitz it. Probably.
Hallooo!! Episode 50 of the Zeens and Roger crochet podcast is up and waiting for you! As usual there are pictures and links below. Click on the pic above to go directly to the episode or go HERE to all my YouTube videos. Cheers!
Hallooo, I’ve done a quick video rundown of this year’s Edinburgh Yarn Festival. I’ve not done one before and thought it’d be a good idea. Go HERE to watch on YouTube!!
Watching it back I can see how much I’ve missed out (there was so much I wanted to say!!) but hopefully what I do talk about is something you find interesting. In a bid to get it out so that EYF is still fresh in my mind, I’ve just talked at you for half an hour as stuff falls out my mouth. Now I’m off to have a power nap because I still haven’t recovered from my weekend in Scotland.
See below for the few photos I took whilst there, some of the yarn I bought and what I plucked up the courage to wear…
So I’m already getting stuck in. I think I have managed to make stuff with about 82% of each year’s EYF purchases!
My granny tie is made with lots of stash bits. I’ll talk about it more in Episode 50 of my crochet podcast.

As part of the Granny Crochet Along for this year (see HERE for Granny CAL info!) I’m making one of these crochet market bags. It’s one of my own designs, you might remember that it was published last summer in an issue of Olann And (find out more about this lovely online magazine HERE).
