Zeens and Roger Crochet Podcast 46.

Another crochet podcast so quickly? Yes, absolutely! Despite this arguably being the second half of last week’s offerings (go HERE for Episode 45) it is nearly an hour long. There is a lot of catching up to do! I do hope you can hang out with me for a bit. x

As usual, you can click on the picture above to go to the episode, or go HERE to my YouTube channel where you’ll find more episodes and lots of crochet video tutorials as well.

Keep scrolling for links and photographs of things discussed…

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?

Crochet Bobble Edging: Video Tutorial

Finally!! I promised this months ago and here we are, I have pulled my finger out and made a tutorial for my crochet bobble edging. Rejoice!! It’s over on YouTube, the pic above is the link but feel free to travel HERE to the whole channel.

You can add this edging to pretty much any blanket, scarf, cushion etc. If the multiples don’t work then I’m all in favour of wangling it so that they do! Crochet is not offended by mild cheating. But for you sticklers out there it’s mults of 3, plus 1 and the corners [my corners are (2tr, 2ch, 2tr)].

For the swatch in the video and the rainbow edged striped blanket pictured here, I used Lucy’s Attic 24’s Granny Stripe tutorial. For more details of making a rainbow edged blanket I have a tutorial for that too! It’s HERE.

Just in case you want to know, I used some random acrylic dk and a 3.75mm hook, which might be a bit small if you have a tight tension.

I first came up with a version of it when I made Sandra’s Cherry Heart A Touch of Spice blanket. (This seems like a lifetime ago!). At the time I made a photo tutorial. It’s just ever so slightly different but it will help here if you want pics.

I’ve also used it on my crazy chevron blanket

 I’m currently slogging through it on this rainbow edged blanket

What do you reckon? I can tell you that it’s time consuming, and on a giant blanket you might get a bit miffed of having it take so long. However, it’s worth persevering as it looks great!
