Episode 21


You can find me on Instagram as sophiexuan and aspringsnowflake, and Ravelry as sophiexuan.

There’s a Ravelry group for the podcast, and you can support the podcast by either buying me a Ko-fi or joining my Patreon community. There’s three levels at the moment but I’m planning to add more once I start publishing my designs!

I also mod in The Craft Bank. This is a place for people who want to pay it forward and donate the cost of crochet patterns, knit patterns, destash yarn or provide yarn support.


Fay of the Crochet Circle Podcast (and general awesomeness) and I are hosting a finish-along! Rip through your WIPs or rip them out before 2020! It’s a simple one – no sign ups but come to my Ravelry group to chat, and Fay’s group to post your FOs! It’s open now and finishes on 31st December. There will be prizes!
