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 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.

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.

Episode 3 of a Crochet Podcast

Hello everyone! I hope you can come and watch Episode 3 of my crochet podcast (or is it a vlog?!). It would mean so much if you spent a little time with me, I’d love to hear what you think. The best thing is, is that you can judge me for bad hair and gurning (I seem very proficent in gurning and having bad hair…and fiddling/flipping said hair- apologies for that, it’s something I need to work on). And you can also get on with crafting at the same time as watching!!

Click on the image above to take you to YouTube!!

Stuff I went on about:

The Wool Kitchen

The Crochet Project -the Humbug Scarf (and I was calling it a shawl!)

Ravelry Group

And below are some pictures of pretty much everything I spoke of in the episode! I hope I haven’t left anytthing out. Does the Pink pop yarn remind you of sweeties?! I went out and bought sweeties especially!

Thank you so much! Now off to play with wool! XX

Crochet Yourself an Amigurumi Easter Egg. Video Tutorial & Pattern

Doesn’t it feel like Spring already?! That means Easter is just around the corner. You may recall that last year I came up with a cute little design for crochet Easter eggs. The surprisingly awesome thing is that it has been a really popular pattern (mostly thanks to Pinterest, not anything I’ve done). To accompany the written pattern I thought that it would be useful if I did a video tutorial. And not just any old video tutorial… my first ever video tutorial! So, it’s apparent that I need to perfect my video making skills somewhat, but you’ve got to start somewhere!

The written pattern is super straightforward and quick to do. The video is probably best viewed as a companion to the written instructions. The video also demonstrates how to embroider the stitches, which the written pattern does not (the time stamp for the decorative bit is 18.25). If I’d been more YouTube savvy I could have made two different videos but I didn’t think about that until afterward!

If you fancy having a look (afterall, Easter is coming up pretty soon) then please click on this picture to take you to YouTube! And then let me know if you’ve made some!! I would absolutely love to see. X
