The Yarniacs: A Knitting Podcast

Aug 22, 2014

Often Gayle and I find out we have been stalking the same pattern, project, designer, or technique. We always laugh and roll our eyes. Now we have come to expect it. This week we have both experienced numerous crochet references, so we decided to share a little bit about crochet. We both started out as crocheters and both continue to crochet. I get occasional hand/arm pain and have found that crochet uses different muscles and is therefore a good alternative that helps me reduce the chance of repetitive stress pain. We aren't experts on the subject of crochet, so many of you probably have more experience and can share some great references. If you have a comment or a reference that you can add to the conversation, please join us on Ravelry here.

And yes, somehow we always end up with a gratuitous Boo photo, taken during recording. This episode he took a liking to Gayle's felted tote/cat bed. Here he is looking fierce--he was actually yawning at the time--and then cuddly. Enjoy!
