Today I was sitting at home thinking about what to crochet. I decided to choose one of the scarf patterns out of the latest issue of Hooks and Needles. I had some yarn that I’d made at Yarnia earlier this year and I had NO clue what to do with it.
So the pattern I chose had a beginning chain of foundationless stitches. I have tried to learn this technique for years to no avail. It was just not ever gonna happen! Well, that’s what I thought.
I didn’t even know that I was working a foundation HDC until it I read it at the end of the instruction. I was so excited! I have to say that Jeananne writes very easy to follow patterns. I will be doing a review of the first issue of the magazine in the next episode of Chaotic and Crafty.
I’m not even sure if it looks right but it seems as though it is so I’m going with it!!
What new crafty techniques have you learned recently?
Yep! That’s right I’m actually doing show notes this time! Please excuse the lighting. I am working on fixing that.
The episode of bad lighting, funny shirts, lateness and misnumbered episodes!!!
But whatever, I’m back ya’ll!!!!!!
I know this is SERIOUSLY late and probably a bit outdated. I talk about my trip to Portland OR, what I’m hooking and knitting and a CAL!
As a note, the podcast may be a bit delyed for the next couple weeks due to moving but I will be active on Plurk and Twitter.
I talk about my FO’s and an upcoming CAL that we’re doing with Twisted Strands podcast. Yay!!!

This is a Stick Up
This is the first of the new format. I am new at doing video podcasts so please be nice lol! I’m hoping this loads right. I will be tweaking things and only getting better as time goes on. Show notes will come soon.
