Zeens & Roger Crochet Podcast. Episode 53. Ice Queen

It has been such chaos this week but I really wanted to stop by to say hello.  It’s a shorty and I feel like a stuck record but I hope you enjoy it nevertheless. Click on the image above to go directly to the episode or to my YouTube channel HERE. Cheers. x

Not many links this time…

If you would like to support me via Patreon (HERE) then I will love you forever. No tiers or no rewards at the moment because I don’t want to break promises I can’t keep. After I get the current commissions out of the way I can focus more on other patterns and YouTube tutorials for you.

Off I go the the Crochet Sanctuary next week. I plan on reporting back so watch this space!

I’m slowly making progress on Hannah’s Frost shawl. I love it so much. Wish I hadn’t made mistakes on it but I love it regardless.

And I talk a bit about The Fibre Co.  In a few months I’ll be able to show you what I make!

Zeens and Roger Crochet Podcast 46.

Another crochet podcast so quickly? Yes, absolutely! Despite this arguably being the second half of last week’s offerings (go HERE for Episode 45) it is nearly an hour long. There is a lot of catching up to do! I do hope you can hang out with me for a bit. x

As usual, you can click on the picture above to go to the episode, or go HERE to my YouTube channel where you’ll find more episodes and lots of crochet video tutorials as well.

Zeens & Roger Episode 45. Yarn is Life

Hello and a belated Happy New Year! This is a bit of a weird episode so apologies for that. It is technically only half an episode as I don’t have the time or inclination for covering the whole lot. I hope to record the second part (which will actually just be Episode 46) next week. Soz!

Go Here to my YouTube channel or click on the pic above to go to the actual episode.

I didn’t do a very good job of addressing the recent discussions on race, inclusiveness and diversity. I’m so sorry that I wasn’t more succinct. I hope you get the idea of what I was trying to say (albeit clumsily). I think you should watch Caleisha’s story on Instagram and I think you should read the experiences of @thecolormustard, @tina.say.knits and @su.krita to name just a few. Also, Hannah from the Cozy Cottage Crochet podcast says exactly what I think too (watch from 1 hr 9mins). There so much to learn from what’s been happening. This is only the beginning.
