Thank you so much for all the lovely comments and encouragement after my first crochet podcast. Welcome to Episode 2! I’ve brought this forward a little bit in the week so that I can publish on a Friday/Saturday, ready for you to sit back and relax with my ramblings at the weekend… I’ll try to stick to that timetable, but there might not be an episode every week…
This week I’m talking about quite a few of the projects I’ve finished, some very recently and some during the last few months, as well as new projects and things I have on my hook 🙂 And a bit of retail therapy xxx
Here is episode 2 of the podcast – hope you enjoy it!

I really enjoyed this podcast and was just the right length of time too. Thank you. I’m looking forward to watching episode 3.

Really enjoyed listening to your podcast and thanks for the mention. Your crochet socks sound really interesting – and perhaps one day you’ll finish your pair of knitted socks! 🙂 xx
Hi Christine – I am making progress and am about 20 rounds from the heel on the second one. I am determined…. xxx
I loved it Kathryn! Thank you for all the info and I will join you in the sockalong! I’ve been hoarding sock yarn as I desperately want to learn to knit socks but I will crochet one first. Thanks again. Love, Mariwish xx
That’s great! I recognise your name from IG – crochet socks are so much easier and I am sure that we can learn to make them look just as desirable as knitted ones – and just as comfy too xxx
