Episode 9 of a Crochet Podcast

Hey there! Episode 9 of my little crochet podcast/ crochet vlog is up and ready for goggling (I still can’t let go of “vlog” – I’m a pedant). Click on the image above to go to YouTube.

I’ve cut the interesting stuff. Sorry. Therefore there is no tale of how I drunkenly got the bruise on my arm. I deemed the whole saga as just too inappropriate! But give me a shout and I might tell you anyway ;p

Before I list any info about this episode’s stuff, I just want to let you know that there will definitely be a blog post about Connie’s blanket coming soon. I took the pics today. At the same time I also took photos of my fluffy Granny chevron cowl. There will be a post with the pattern for that on here in the next week or so too. Cheers.

Episode 9 gubbins:

The Magnolia Mandala by Crochet Millan is Here.

If you fancy treating yourself to some Phildar Flocon, then that’s Here. But you might want to hang on for episode 10. I’ve been given the go ahead to do a Giveaway!!

Do you think Instagram might have messed up your feed with dodgy algorithms? Check out Lauren Aston’s detailed blog post all about it.

Episode 6. Crochet Vlog/Podcast

Hello there! The above screen shot will take you to YouTube for a crochet podcast /video web log experience you’ll never forget!!  Please do pop along and watch; it would make me super happy!  Anyway, what have you been up to? This vlog is pretty much what I’ve been doing over the last couple of weeks. I always have really good intentions about structure, format, order etc. As soon as the record button gets pressed, that all goes out the window! It’s just supposed to be a chat, not a presented programme. That’s what I tell myself.

Here are the links to stuff in episode 6. If there’s anything else you’re interested in please do ask. Cheers.
