Unpacking Crochet Adventures: A Look into Episode 157 - Secret Yarnery

Hello, fellow crochet enthusiasts! Christa here! Welcome back to My Crochet Podcast, Episode 157! I'm thrilled to have you here with me today. Let's dive right into the latest yarny adventures and crochet projects.

Easter Extravaganza: Crafting Memories with Family

Easter was an absolute blast! With my kids home from school, we embarked on a memorable scavenger hunt. To ensure fairness, I divided the candy equally, creating personalized scavenger hunts for each of us. No more candy-related chaos! Our Easter feast was a hit too, featuring roast ham, mashed potatoes, veggies, and a delightful lemon meringue pie. I even mastered Hasselback Potatoes, thanks to a clever BBQ skewer trick.

Cracking the Social Media Code: Finding My Instagram Groove

I've had a love-hate relationship with social media, especially Instagram. But this year, I made it my mission to conquer it. After much trial and error, I found my unique approach—sharing behind-the-scenes snippets without feeling pressured to showcase my entire life.

Crafty Creations: From Easter Baskets to Blanket Baskets

Now, let's talk crafts! I whipped up adorable Easter baskets just in time for the holiday using an 8 mm hook and four strands of yarn. The result? Sturdy, cute baskets perfect for holding treats or yarn. Plus, I experimented with making eggs—yes, you heard that right! These quick-to-crochet eggs are versatile and fun to make. They're great for Easter decorations or playtime in a kid's kitchen.

But the crafting didn't stop there! I also tackled a new project—a blanket basket. Using a neutral-colored Kenyan acrylic yarn, I crafted a spacious basket to hold cozy blankets. It's the perfect addition to any living room, providing both style and functionality.

Wrapping Up: What's Next on My Hook?

As for my current WIP (work in progress), I'm revisiting an old favorite—the lacy blanket. It's been sitting in my stash for a while, but I'm determined to finish it. With its one-row repeat pattern and squishy texture, it's an absolute joy to crochet. Plus, I'm working on a fabulous wrap using DK weight cotton yarn. It's a simple yet elegant project that's perfect for springtime crafting.

In terms of my upload schedule, I've decided to take a more relaxed approach. While there will still be a new video every Sunday, I'm giving myself the freedom to skip Wednesdays if needed. After all, life can get busy, and I want to prioritize quality content over quantity.
