Zeens & Roger Episode 45. Yarn is Life

Hello and a belated Happy New Year! This is a bit of a weird episode so apologies for that. It is technically only half an episode as I don’t have the time or inclination for covering the whole lot. I hope to record the second part (which will actually just be Episode 46) next week. Soz!

Go Here to my YouTube channel or click on the pic above to go to the actual episode.

I didn’t do a very good job of addressing the recent discussions on race, inclusiveness and diversity. I’m so sorry that I wasn’t more succinct. I hope you get the idea of what I was trying to say (albeit clumsily). I think you should watch Caleisha’s story on Instagram and I think you should read the experiences of @thecolormustard, @tina.say.knits and @su.krita to name just a few. Also, Hannah from the Cozy Cottage Crochet podcast says exactly what I think too (watch from 1 hr 9mins). There so much to learn from what’s been happening. This is only the beginning.

Zeens & Roger Crochet Podcast. Episode 38

Crikey, this episode was certainly a labour of love! Lots of takes, lots of splicing, but finally we’re there! And oh, god, I’ve just watched some of it to make sure it processed OK and I missed a very rude word. I usually edit out any naughtiness but totally missed an F-bomb. I’m so sorry but I just cannot be arsed to go through the whole rigmarole of exporting again. It takes about two hours and I have reached the end of my tether. I hope you can forgive me….please?
