Podcast Episode 6 - Yarn Talk

Wow, another podcast recorded and uploaded.  It took over 14 hours to upload this yesterday.  Yes, 14 hours, over 14!!!!!


Anyway, it is uploaded now and ready to view and that is the most important thing isn't it!

In this weeks episode I talk quite a lot about different yarn weights and how to use them, what effect they give and also what the differences are between the names of the types of yarn in different countries.

I hope that you will keep enjoying watching the podcast and the things that I am sharing!  Just a reminder next week will be a day later than usual.

Also, I forgot to mention in the podcast - which is quite important!! - I am having a sale on all garlands in my Etsy shop.  They are now 50% off and the price shown is the reduced price, the original price is in the description.  Offer lasts until 31st May 2016 and after that date these items will no longer be available in my shop, so this is the last chance to get them!  You can find my shop here.


Thank you for watching and for your continued support, I really do appreciate it!

  1. I haven't come across Crochet Now yet, I'll have to look out for it when I go shopping.

  2. THe link to the basket led me to my blog??? I'd like to see the price etc!!

    1. Hi Kathy, thank you so much for letting me know. I have e-mailed you and the link is now fixed if anyone else wants to have a look. Thank you. Amy xx

  3. Podcast 6 already, the time just flies. x

  4. Good for you Amy to do podcasts with your expertise and patterns. If I ever learn to crochet, which I'm trying, I may have to visit some of your tutorials. The gal trying to teach me is a knitter and gives lessons but crocheting she does just out of her head and can't read a pattern. We do a lot of laughing anyway!

  5. Hi Amy,

    Was fun to watch your latest podcast and nice to see your latest makes!

    Well done!

  6. Goodness, I don't know how you do it. You have so much going on. My favorite hook sizes are G and H so I pretty much use them for just about everything I do. What are you using to record yourself? I can't imagine stringing anything sensible together for 45 minutes. good job :)
