Episode 71 Let’s talk hooks

The last podcast before my holidays and I am so looking forward to it… I shall be enjoying the beauty of Scotland, walking on the coast and in the vast Galloway Forest of Dumfries and Galloway and taking a break from yarn dyeing and Etsy shop management but not from all things yarny, of course.

I’ve also invested in some lovely new crochet hooks so I thought I’d do a bit of a review to tell you more about the ones I’ve been using. I also chat about a couple of projects and show how my solar dyeing experiment went.

There is a wonderful giveaway in this episode and I have a very important section about Sandra of Cherry Heart. This link takes you to her main website, from where you can access her podcast on YouTube and her Ravelry store. She is a fabulous crochet designer and has very kindly offered half a dozen of her patterns as a giveaway to celebrate my 3 year podiversary and 70 episodes. It should have gone into the last episode but that was long already and I wanted to show you the designs in more detail.

At the end is my Etsy shop news – the shop will remain open while I’m on holiday but I won’t be here to process your orders. I’ll be putting messages in the shop but all orders placed between the 7th May 2019 and the 19th May 2019 will be processed and packed the week afterwards. You will get a dispatch notification as each shipment goes to the Post Office.

The sock club for May is now with, or on its way, to everyone who has preordered. I’ve sent out 20 sets this month, so only have 15 left now for the reveal, which I’ll do around the 21st May.

The June sock club is all dyed up and will be going out to international pre-order customers in time for June 1st. Canadian orders (which take the longest) will go out before I go on holiday and USA and European orders will go out just after I get back. The UK preorders will be dispatched around the 28th May.

Thanks for watching – I may update these notes with more info if I get chance today but I have put relevant links in the video as captions. Otherwise, please ask any questions in the comments here or on YouTube.
