My Crochet Journey: A Look into Episode 17 - Secret Yarnery

Hello everyone, Christa here from The Secret Yarnery! I’m excited today to share insights from my Crochet Blog Episode 17. Let’s dive into the world of yarn, hooks, and cozy projects together!

Tea Time Musings

As I settled down to film Episode 17, I couldn’t resist indulging in a cup of tea. There’s something so comforting about sipping on a warm beverage, especially in the morning. My go-to tea choice? The English breakfast blend from Kericho Gold, a company that never fails to deliver quality blends. It’s the perfect companion for a morning crochet session, don’t you think?

Connecting with Viewers

One of the highlights of creating content is interacting with my amazing viewers. In the last episode, I took a moment to express gratitude to those who took the time to comment on my previous vlog. Special shoutout to Bimala, Trudy, Jody Mars, and Christy from Christy's Crochet Corner! Your engagement meant the world to me.

Exciting Giveaway Updates

My ongoing giveaway has been a hit, with 173 unique entries so far! It’s been a joy to see the enthusiasm from the community. As I eagerly wait for the winner announcement, I can’t help but brainstorm ideas for future giveaways. How about a blend of Kenyan yarn and tea or coffee for our next giveaway? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Crochet Adventures: From WIPs to Finished Projects

Let’s talk crochet projects!  I shared updates on my current works-in-progress. From a cuddly bunny to a never-ending flower shawl, each project presents its own set of challenges and joys. I’m particularly excited about the bunny, which is slowly but surely taking shape with every stitch.


Embracing Kenyan Culture

Living and crocheting in Kenya has opened my eyes to a rich tapestry of culture and tradition. As I ventured out to film in local markets, I couldn’t help but marvel at the vibrant sights and sounds around me. Engaging with local vendors, bargaining for treasures, and immersing myself in the hustle and bustle of everyday life—it’s all part of the experience.

Inviting Community Connections

At The Secret Yarnery, community is at the heart of everything I do. That’s why I’m thrilled to announce our upcoming crochet event at a cozy coffee shop. It’s a chance for fellow yarn enthusiasts to come together, share stories, and maybe even pick up a new stitch or two. If you’re in Nairobi, be sure to mark your calendars for a morning of tea, coffee, and crochet fun!

Reflecting on Creativity

As I wrap up, I find myself reflecting on the power of creativity and connection. Through yarn and crochet, we weave together a tapestry of stories, memories, and shared experiences. Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or just starting out, know that you’re part of a vibrant and welcoming community.

Thank you for joining me on this crochet journey. Until next time, happy hooking!

Christa, The Secret Yarnery
