Melody Crochet Podcast Episode 30! (1500?!)



Hi friend!

I just posted the 30th episode of the Melody Crochet Podcast and celebrated 1500 subscribers!
(Thanks guys!!) Like always, I discussed my crochet, knitting, other crafts as they applied.


I finished knitting a pair of socks that went so fast. And I have started making a tutorial for a my
“Independence Kimono” and an off the shoulder top. I reviewed ZZ Twist by Lion Brand this last week and
will post that in a day or so and I will be sure to let you know about it here on the blog.
(spoiler…its yarn. I like it).

I had lots of crochet time on the road and while visiting places because this week was Izzys Birthday!!! He is nine now, guys. Nine! Remember when I was here and showing you the first tiny things I made for him? Oh, the feels are so strong on birthdays. I am so proud of the kind, strong, peaceful little man he has become. I could just explode. It has been a wild year and he has really helped keep our family grounded.

We got him a drum set. Yes, a drum set. 

While celebrating I went ahead and made some home purchases. I am thinking that I need another youtube channel for the non-yarn related stuff that. I feel completely comfortable sharing that here with the blog…but I feel hesitant on the Youtube channel. I worry that my friends there might just be after the yarn content. I will meditate on this for the week and decide. There are several things that I haven’t shared because I didn’t want to bore anyone. That is not like me!


I am also really excited to share my progress on some other projects this week, designing some projects and getting ready for the holiday shop. This is the time of year that I start thinking about the holidays. I blame Hobby Lobby for putting up the Christmas Decorations. It is delightful in the heat of Texas…but it does make you feel just a little pressure.



I talk a lot about my new yarn that I purchased for the #SummerRomanceAlong with CrochetLuna. It was not on purpose. The subject of the yarn just kept coming up in the conversation. My theme is Buffy and Spike. But, I lean more toward Spike Drucilla. #teamspuffy

I hope that you take the time (30 minutes, specifically) to hang out with me on this fine day. Grab a project to work on and a nice cup of something.

If you have any questions or comments please leave them! I love to converse…if you are wondering where to connect…

MelodyCrochet Podcast 17! – The Christmas Episode

Hi guys! Hope you are all doing fine. Happy Holidys to you and yours. (((hugs)))

I posted a video yesterday and wanted to leave some links to what was on there and where you might find it. Just in case!

First off…the tree is real. Every year. My husband cannot fathom a fake tree. I let the family place the ornaments but I do everything else. It is one of my favorite things to do. I get so scratched up so I wouldn’t want to make a career out of it. But, one tree a year and I have this permanent grin glued on my face. So, she had to be in the video!


The bear above my head is our “elf on a shelf”. I crocheted him from the¬†Amineko¬†pattern¬†in this adorable book. Its made from Gynx Yarns on her glitz sock base in the colorway “Naughty or Nice”. Here is¬†the project page! And here is the book:

And now for the things I am making:

Works In Progress!

Garter Squish knitted blanket for Errol!

These are the needles I used:

Holey Smokes crochet shawl

Ho’s!

My gloves are my own pattern and I will link when I get the pattern written digitally. For now it is chicken scratch in three places. LOL But I used Encore by Plymouth yarn, Knitters Pro Cubic wooden needles in size 5. The X-Large gloves only take 36 grams of yarn each. I am so thrilled. I really thought I was going to need two balls of yarn for a set of gloves.

Finished Objects!

Cosy Cardi Crazy Christmas crochet sweater

Cozy Thermal Mitts knitted fingerless gloves for the husbeast! Here is the link to my favorite mitten needles!

Oh! The Tea!!! Red Velvet by Stash Tea is probably my favorite tea that I have found this season. I am just in love with it. I have found a few new favorites but this one I just cannot get enough of.


Their words:

Have your cake and drink it too! Rooibos combines with rich chocolate, caramel, and raspberry flavors to create the perfect cup to satisfy a sweet tooth. Pleasingly sweet with a distinctive chocolate taste and a beautiful red brew. Add a splash of milk and sugar for a creamy dessert in a cup.
Ingredients
Cocoa shells, rooibos, hibiscus, natural cream cheese flavor, natural caramel flavor, natural raspberry flavor

My words…its¬†smooth chocolate raspberry but heavy on the raspberry. Like jam. I add a tiny bit of stevia and a little milk. I never bring tea to bed because I have carpet right now and two dogs. Its begging for trouble. But, I have brought this to bed to drink while I crochet TWICE this week.

Thank you for the love and support that you send through the blog and the vlog. If I don’t see you until after Christmas I hope yours is merry and bright and full of things that make your heart smile!

As always, this post contains with affiliate links that I profit financially from. I so appreciate when you do. I hope that they prove to be as helpful to you as the profits are to me.
