Exploring the World of Crochet and Life in Kenya with Christa - Secret Yarnery

Hey there, it's Christa from The Secret Yarnery, and welcome to another exciting episode of our Crochet Podcast! Today, I'm thrilled to dive into some crochet projects, share a bit about my life here in Kenya, and answer some viewer questions. So grab your yarn and hooks, and let's get started!

A Glimpse into My Crochet Journey

Before we jump into today's topics, let me give you a quick overview of what you can expect from my podcast. We'll kick things off with some crochet talk, covering everything from works in progress (WIPs) to finished projects and recent yarn acquisitions. Then, we'll venture into a bit of storytelling about life here in Kenya, followed by viewer Q&A and maybe even some fun bloopers or clips of my adventures around Nairobi.

Crochet, Calamities, and Lion Hats

Alright, let's dive into the crochet realm! Currently, I'm working on a cardigan for myself, but I hit a snag with the pattern. It turns out my initial approach wasn't giving me the fit I desired, so it's back to the drawing board for a bit of pattern tweaking. On a brighter note, I've also started crocheting a lion hat – a fun project that's sure to bring a smile to anyone's face! Using two strands of yarn for extra fluffiness, this hat promises to be a roaring success.

Life in Kenya: Seasons and Bugs

Living in Kenya offers a unique experience, especially when it comes to weather and wildlife. We have two main seasons – short rains and long rains – which bring their own charm and challenges. And speaking of challenges, let's not forget about the bugs! While we don't have an abundance of creepy crawlies, encounters with spiders and moths can still make for some memorable moments, as you'll see in one of the clips from my recent adventures.


From Mystery Packages to Danish Embassies: A Tour of Nairobi

In between crochet projects and bug sightings, I love taking you on a virtual tour of Nairobi. Whether it's a trip to the local market for chicken feed or passing by iconic landmarks like the Danish Embassy, there's always something interesting to see and share. Plus, it's a great way to give you a glimpse into daily life here in Kenya.

Wrapping Up and Looking Ahead

As my podcast comes to a close, I want to express my gratitude to all of you – my wonderful viewers and fellow yarn enthusiasts. Your support and engagement mean the world to me, and I can't wait to continue this crochet journey together. So until next time, stay hooked and keep those creative juices flowing!
