YarnTube Episode # 1: Hello!
I finally started a Podcast!
This is something that I've been wanting to do for years & finally just decided to give it a shot. This first episode is a little rough around the edges, but it's there & it has the bones of what I want the podcast to eventually become. So, just go into it knowing that like all projects, this one is still a work in progress & I'll just get better the more I work at it. (I promise I'll have a better camera for the next episode!)
This episode includes:
A brief intro to who I am & why I've decided to start a podcast. (Spoiler: community & knitting friends are the best!)

Mastering Mosaic Tutorial
My Magic Fringe Shawl that I hinted at in the end of this episode (releasing next week!) features a simple mosaic colorwork pattern. If you need some tips for this slip-stitch colorwork, I've got you covered. Just click on the "Learn" tab at the top of the page or follow this link to go directly to the full tutorial.
Can't wait for the new pattern to be released?
Here are a few of my other mosaic knitting patterns to get you started!
PS: Did you see that the Tales of Childhood Collection was featured on Episode 123 of the Crafty Toads?!? I'm so excited!!! The collection shows up about 1/2 way through the episode, but if you have time the entire show is wonderful & very enabley. (Not that I would want to help you fall into any new crafting habits or anything, lol. ^_- )
Also, the Adventure Anklets were featured on episode 125:
