Thank you so much for stopping by! This podcast episode was originally published March 28, 2012 and I have since stopped producing new episodes of the Crochet Chat Podcast. However, these episodes have fabulous content, so I’m gradually re-releasing them so that we can keep enjoying them!
I am now releasing videos which are are more casual version of this podcast. I’d love it if you’d subscribe to my blog (click here for a reader) or enter your email in the sidebar on the right!) to stay updated!

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.
