WeCrochet Podcast Episode 10: Getting Cozy in the Home-zy

Time spent at home can be full of mixed emotions. On one hand, it’s nice to find time to do your craft and on the other hand you might be finally faced with piles and stacks of all the projects and materials you’ve put off organizing. Well there’s no time like the present, come spring clean with your friends at WeCrochet.

Heather’s confession to losing her swift leads Sara and Heather discuss their favorite methods to organize their crochet supplies. Do you organize your yarn by color, by weight or by fiber? Project bags are a great way to stay organized and is only one of many on Sara’s list of tips to stay organized. 

Heather introduces Regan to Stitch Away Stress, an initiative that the Craft Yarn Council is launching for the month of April for Stress Awareness Month. Crochet has been linked to mood improvement, improvement in confidence and concentration, and general stress relief. Regan lets it slip that he has finished his second crocheted sweater (yay) and shares what he has learned and how that has impacted his sense of accomplishment. 

Producer Sarah and Heather check in on what they’re working on. Producer Sarah has been learning Tunisian crochet while Heather has been finishing her WIPs or works in progress [projects]. Heather did recently finish her Felici on the Double Cowl (yay):

    Yes! I am in total agreement that crochet (or knitting) is a stress reliever. since we’ve been stuck at home, I’ve been doing a lot of bonding with my hooks and yarns. throw after throw! I’ve been learning new techniques and stitches.. like mosaic! I’m hooked! It helps me decompress from work and dealing with my son and remote learning…. I look forward to your podcasts!

    I love your podcasts. My crochet and knitting during this quarantine has helped me have time for Christmas gifts and most of all it has helped me with my hand-to-mouth disease!! Yes!! Using my hands and keeping them busy, helps to keep me from snacking and eating all day long!! I have not gained weight during this at home time. Thank you for your inspiration, information and especially videos too!! I am a beginner Crocheter.
