Welcome to the debut episode of the Crochet Chat Podcast! I’m so excited to start this adventure, and I hope this podcast will be a terrific resource for us crocheters!
Since this is the first episode, I’m really hoping that you’ll leave me a comment in the comments section of this blog post! Let me know what you think… and if you have any ideas/suggestions! The podcast is a work in progress, so I’m very open to recommendations!
In this episode, I’ll introduce myself (Hi! I’m Stacey!), talk about the Berroco Lustra (a wool/tencel blend that’s on my hook) and investigate some of the online resources that are available to crocheters and how to use them.
Here’s how it works: Below, you’ll see the player that allows you to play the episode. Or you can download this episode (right click and save) to listen to it on the go.
Below the player is an outline and list of links to products/websites/things I chat about during the episode.
