We all know YouTube is the place to go when we want a certain pattern or stitch explained. In fact I know for many crocheters YouTube was the place where they actually learned how to crochet!
Last year the people of Wolplein launched a weekly yarn inspired talk show – “Koffie & Wol” (“Coffee & Wool”) – on YouTube and I was hooked right from the start.
The show is hosted by lovely and very talented Petra, Lotte and Saskia – the latter well known for the three (!) crochet books she wrote with Claire – and is very informative.
Every week Saskia tells us how to crochet a pattern she specifically designed for the show (the pattern of which then can be found on the Wolplein Blog), Petra teaches Saskia how to knit, and Lotte takes the show on the road, interviewing crocheters, visiting yarn fests etc.
And guess what?
I was asked to come to the “Koffie & Wol”-studio a couple of weeks ago to have an all-about-crochet-chat with Saskia!!
Gosh, an honor, really and so, SO much fun to do!
It was not until after the show that I got nervous about going to be so “visible”, but to be honest: I’m pretty pleased with how the interview turned out: big thanks to Saskia and the wonderful and professional Wolplein/Koffie & Wol-people.
The interview is in Dutch and I doubt that google translate will help us out here, but you still might want to get a glimpse of my crochet and me on film ;), so here’s the link.
