Art and Needlework Podcast Episode 3: Explorations in Gauge


It has been a couple of weeks since I last put out a podcast. Had some tech trouble when my video editing software just wouldn’t open. Luckily, I figured out the problem and had everything back up and running yesterday!

Show Highlights:

In this podcast I share the news about an upcoming crochet class happening at my Local Yarn Store.

I mention one current project this week, the crocheted Garden Party Sweater designed by Marly Bird.

A lot of finished objects to share with you this time, including a sweet little baby quilt, baby slippers, and a watercolor painting.

At the end of the podcast, I go a little deeper into the discussion of crochet stitch gauge with the Garden Party Sweater.
