HGDC Podcast Episode 1

Episode 1 of the HGDesignsCrochet Podcast

Intro

This is my first podcast/vlog on all things crochet, knitted, sewing with a few book reviews for good measure.

A little about me – how I became a crocheter and a knitter.

I decided that my knitting needs some dedicated time to keep me interested and an active knitter! Anyone else gravitate to easy projects?!

I show off my first ever pair of TAAT socks on magic loop. There is a way to go to complete one pair of socks per month.

I show off my new amazing logo by @Jayne007Bond on Instagram and my buisness cards.

I am so excited to announce the launch of the HGDC subscription box.

Each box will have 100-120g of luxury indie dyed yarn, with stitch markers and a few bonus secret goodies, all themed. All items included will be produced in the UK.

The launch box is MERMAID themed.

Hannah from @HayJayYarns will be the first indie dyer!

There are mermaid themed stitch markers!!!!! Plus bonus secret goodies galore.

The box price is £30+postage and the first launch will be limited to 30 boxes. So keep an eye out for my Etsy launch.

HGDCScrapBallChallenge:

I introduce this hashtag which is the creation of crochet projects made from scrap yarn and quickly show some of the blankets i’ve created with it. I talk about the weekly showcase on my Instagram page and my plans to have a podcast solely dedicated to this.

I also ask you to comment whether I should continue with my scrap Dharms Circle Charm blanket with pink, black or white centres and joining.

I highlight some of the future projects I have in mind.

WIP Wishlist

I commissioned a blanket and gave it all of my crochet time. Which actually helped me focus on what I want to make for ME. So here are a few images of all my crochet crushes right now, not forgetting knitting which is also turning my head. I am all about the wearables.
