Zeens & Roger Crochet Vlogcast. Episode 23

Hello!! It is time for Episode 23 of the Zeens and Roger crochet podcast [SEO, folks!] / crochet vlog. There are some delightfully embarrassing moments, including ungainly lumbering upon a sofa and a super geeky confession at the end. I hope you enjoy it! Please click on the link above for the episode or jump to my YouTube channel HERE.

Episode 21. Crochet Catch Up.

I am in a good place for this time of year. I hope you are too. I feel like I’ve played catch up and won. This episode is about showing off the latest finished objects (note that I have not said anything about WIPS!). I also chat about old pals and how I feel about progression in my work. Don’t forget to click on the picture above which will take you to YouTube.

Oh, and something else I mention is this: Would you be interested in some kind of Granny-a-long? Embrace all things Granny? I am thinking of hosting a CAL (that’s Crochet-a-long) in the new year focusing on the humble granny square/stitch. Let me know what you think!

Here are the links for everything I have talked about in this crochet podcast. And please do scroll beyond for all the crafty things…

Episode 15 of a Crochet Vlogcast

Hey, I haven’t been here for ages!  Yes, I’ve been busy doing stuff but I also haven’t been able to edit photos!  I’ve been using PicMonkey since I started blogging but they recently started charging when it was once free. It means that any pictures taken couldn’t be squashed, cropped or edited and that’s no good. A long time ago we got a very old version of Photoshop, so I’m learning that instead. Hopefully normal service will resume soon.

In the mean time, fancy watching a crochet podcast? Vlog. Vlogcast… Click on the pic above and you’ll end up having a chat with me on YouTube!

Stuff I talk about (yeah, I know, it’s all about me this time!)…

Ravelry: free and paid for patterns designed by me! Including the Vintage Autumn mitts.

Etsy: my neglected shop, which has a few things.

Free crochet pattterns: right here on this blog!

And below are a couple of pictures to jazz up the post!

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.

Stuff from Episode 5!

Hey! Welcome to Episode 5 where I talk about crochet. It’s a crochet podcast or vlog, I still haven’t decided what to call it. Technically it’s a vlog but podcast is the word that has caught on… The pedant in me is finding the situation very hard to deal with.

Click on the pic above to take you to YouTube!

Here, you’ll find links to all the things I’ve talked about, along with some photos. So even if you don’t want to watch, you can at least see what I’ve been up to recently.

All my sewing projects are in full use, I’ve got a couple of other things on the go and yep, that’s it really! Let me know what you think! Have a fab weekend. X
