In this episode, I’m reporting back after my fabulous California adventure… I visited yarn stores around the Santa Cruz and San Francisco area and made some fabulous finds!
I’ll also talk about learning the Crocodile Stitch (it’s fabulous!) and a little lesson I learned about free vs. paid crochet patterns.
