Crikey, this episode was certainly a labour of love! Lots of takes, lots of splicing, but finally we’re there! And oh, god, I’ve just watched some of it to make sure it processed OK and I missed a very rude word. I usually edit out any naughtiness but totally missed an F-bomb. I’m so sorry but I just cannot be arsed to go through the whole rigmarole of exporting again. It takes about two hours and I have reached the end of my tether. I hope you can forgive me….please?

Wow, that two weeks went by really quickly! It’s already Episode 20 of my fabulously unprofessional crochet podcast (it’s a crochet vlog, I’m writing “podcast” cos of how I understand SEO. I bet it doesn’t work anyway. Meh! whatever…). As ever, please click on the above picture to be transported to the episode over on YouTube.
Although I’m wearing a crochet Christmas hat, it isn’t a particularly festive themed episode. You can’t escape the fact that the season is almost upon us but I’m not in full yule tide merriment just yet.
I talk about adjusting my knitted cowl, a new crochet design, vintage pattern books and generally waffle about stuff.
Here are some links:
