Crochet Chat Podcast: Bead Crochet

Hello, again, folks! It’s been an exciting two weeks… I took a great trip to Lancaster County, PA and finished unpacking my studio. I’ve even ordered a new camera and have been working on the Ravellenic Games! So exciting!

In this podcast, I’ll tell you all about my recent adventures, as well as report on what I’ve learned about my newest obsession, bead crochet. It’s fun, and you only need to slip stitch!

Come on and have a listen!

    Great podcast! I have to tell you that bead crochet is the reason I learned to crochet in the first place. I’m a beader, and love the look of bead crochet, but just couldn’t get it. I understood what I needed to do, but couldn’t make my hands do it. So I figured I’d just learn to crochet, and get used to those movements before adding the beads. I fell in love with crochet, and have been so busy with it that I haven’t gone back to bead crochet. I did make a small sample, as you suggested with larger yarn and beads, and was successful with it! Yay! Now I’m anxious to tackle it again. The first couple of rounds are the hardest. Once you get past that, it’s easy.

    Lancaster County sounds like fun. Have you ever visited any of the Shaker villages in NY and MA? I think you’d like them. Their woodworking and other crafts are fabulous. I don’t recall if I saw crochet there because we went in my PC (pre-crochet) days.

    I almost forgot. Have fun swimming in the gorges! I spent many lovely hours there during college. Treman Falls State Park was my favorite. I love the shady trail through the gorge.

The shop is on vacation for the summer! Come back in September for a full restock!
