Hookin’ for a Cause- Recap Episode 1: Basics and Supplies

During the live recording I mentioned several links and posted them into the chat area.  Since the chat area clears when the show is over I am posting the links here for everyone.

During today’s show, Basics and Supplies, we learned three basic stitches:  chain (ch), single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc).  I also talked about various yarn types and sizes as well as various hook sizes.  If you missed the show you can watch it here:  http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/5419558

Good place to buy yarn in bulk quantities at VERY discounted rates:  http://smileysyarns.com/

Good place to buy any craft items, including crochet supplies:  http://www.herrschners.com/

Of course you don’t have to buy your yarn and hooks and supplies online, you can buy them from Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, Wal-Mart, a specialty yarn store or anywhere else you can find them!
