From Hooks to Highways: Christa's Crochet Escapade - Secret Yarnery

Hello Crochet enthusiasts! It's time for another exciting episode with yours truly, Christa, from The Secret Yarnery. In this blog, I'll take you on a journey through Episode 28, where we dive into the colorful world of crochet, share some personal anecdotes, and connect with our vibrant community. 

Getting Acquainted

First things first, let me introduce myself. I'm Christa, your friendly host, hailing all the way from Nairobi, Kenya. With 17 years of residency in this beautiful country, I've found my passion for crochet and built a home in this vibrant community. 

Finished Objects and Works in Progress

From cozy blankets to adorable baskets, I've been busy hooking away to craft delightful pieces for my loved ones. The satisfaction of completing a project, like the "Scraptastic" blanket for my little ones, fills me with joy. And let's not forget the ongoing C2C project, which I'm transforming into a stylish sweater or cardigan. With each stitch, I'm crafting not just garments but memories.

Q&A and Beyond

One of the most rewarding aspects of hosting this podcast is the opportunity to engage with our wonderful community. In the Q&A segment, I address questions ranging from my family's hobbies to the education system in Kenya. It's a chance to connect, share insights, and learn from each other's experiences. And speaking of community, I'm immensely grateful for the warm reception and support we've received, culminating in a milestone of 10,000 subscribers! It's a testament to the power of connection and the love for all things crochet.

Exploring Nairobi: A Driving Adventure

As a bonus treat, I take you on a virtual tour through the streets of Nairobi, offering glimpses of daily life and local sights. From bustling markets to serene landscapes, Nairobi is a tapestry of colors and cultures. As I navigate the roads, sharing anecdotes and observations, you'll get a taste of the vibrant energy that defines this city. And who knows, you might even spot a Matatu or two, the iconic minibusses that are a quintessential part of Nairobi's urban landscape.

In conclusion,this podcast has been a delightful journey filled with creativity, community, and exploration. Whether you're a seasoned crocheter or just dipping your toes into the world of yarn, there's something for everyone in our cozy corner of the internet. So grab your hooks, settle in with a cup of tea, and join me for the next episode as we unravel more tales from the world of crochet!


Stay hooked, Christa
