Episode 5: Aqua Blue and Something New

Episode 5 wraps up finished projects, plans for stash busting, a chat about anti-crochet perspectives and a new question for Shorty's Sutures listeners.

Finished Objects

  • Finished up the squares for Blankets for Ethiopia and Joplin, MO

  • Finished up Crochet Adorned project using the Fuzzy Bib Top pattern as inspiration with my modifications along with the Bird Brooch pattern

What’s in my bag?

What’s new my library?

What’s in my ears?

  • TSP

  • SavvyGirls knitting podcast and my rebuttal to some anti-crochet perspectives

What’s new in my stash?

  • Nothing just yet; trying to get thru the massive stash that I currently have

  • Have some beautiful 100% Alpaca yarn (maybe 1500 yds) that I would like to make a sweater from, among other lovely yarns

Question for Episode 5 listeners: What is your favorite yarn to work with?

Reminder of the Crochet Concupiscence Hookin’ Up project that continues through July. A big thanks to Cheryl at Purple Butterly Crochet Collection and Keri at Yarn Dharma for their participation in the Hookin' Up project, too. I'm so glad to have gotten to know them better!
