Crochet at Play Book Tour: Video Interview and Giveaway


Today I am happy to host the latest stop on the Crochet at Play book tour.

I feel like I’ve been involved in every step of the book although I never wielded a crochet hook myself! From brainstorming ideas with Kat to the photo shoot that Nat and my children took part in; I’ve been along for the ride.

Having been along for the ride I know first hand just how much work Kat put into making her book and I’m incredibly proud of what she has achieved.

To find out more about the book I’ve filmed this video interview with Kat so you can hear what she has to say. It’s about 15 minutes long and my webcam gets progressively more green as the interview goes on! Grab a cup of tea and join us…

    I have been an avid follower of Slugs on the Refrigerator and Kat’s amazing new book. I also loved the sweet photo shoot video. I too am a keen crocheter and knitter and am always trying to push my personal limits and fears of what i think i can and cannot make! So if i had to write a crochet book, i think I would call it: Crochet trials and tribulations and coming out on top! Thanks for the give-away x Penny

    Well after my recent attempts I’d have to go with “How to crochet like you’re diffusing a bomb”, the perfect how to guide for anyone with too much peace and relaxation in their lives – or perhaps not!

    I think my title would be projects to crochet whilst being sat on by two children and trying to make a cup of tea…

    It would have to be Playing Hooky.

    Gosh that’s tricky – I think I would keep it short and simple so it would have to be “Hooked”

    Aghh! :D I think I’m following all the giveaways about this book :) mmmm my title would be… “animals, beasts, and other stories… Crochet for fun!” Or something related to the fun of crocheting and all the animals and this particular world that has been created by Kat Goldin.

    Mine would be “Crochet Explained, for Knitters” as I struggled to learn to crochet after knitting for years!

    Crochet for dunces!/ Stop knitting when you’re actually crocheting!

    Crochet for Dolls and Bears. The first thing I ever crocheted was a dollys blanket now my daughters toys have a more extensive wardrobe than she does :)
