Lisa’s YouTube Channel

You can view her latest video here and subscribe to her channel. As well as this (rare) crochet video, she mainly does relaxation videos and meditations. The sleep one is really good…

Mini hexagon tutorial

I did this a few weeks ago to show how I am making the three round hexagons.

The mini grab bags

I have seven grab bags with 10 x 20g minis in each and each one will go to first-come, first-served and I’ll keep a small waiting list in case someone changes their mind or runs into problems with online payments.

Each set is £20 plus shipping to your destination (open to worldwide). Standard delivery or tracked and insured is available.

Ways you can support me (if you’d like)

Have a browse in my Etsy shop and see if any of my yarns tickle your fancy.

Join me on Patreon with a subscription of a few $ a month and get access to Patreon-only content. During the Covid-19 crisis I’ll be running regular virtual meet ups for my $6 a month Patrons.

Buy me a £3 coffee through Ko-fi. I’m investing half of all coffee money and 10% of my Patreon income into craft-based businesses in areas of the world struggling with poverty. The projects are all through www.kiva.org and you can read more about them here.

The costs-you-nothing options

Just click on one of the ads in the right margin – I get a few pence per click and it doesn’t cost you anything.

If you are buying anything through Amazon, use this links below to start browsing. Again, I get a few pence towards an Amazon purchase and it adds nothing to your item price.
