    I loved your first video blog! I hope you do many more. You’re very talented and you make exquisite pieces. You made my favorite hat!

    Great video, Jen! (I’m the Potato Head named De De, if YouTube lets you see your followers.) I think you know my crafter story and years of experience (or non-experience, they should probably be called.) But I will be finishing my first-ever throw blanket very soon – I have posted some pics on Ravelry. Woohoo! I love all your colorful yarn. I want to do a project with a variegated yarn this year.

      Sorry it took me so long to get back on the computer! Thank you for following my channel! 🙂 I almost want to do another podcast this week, but I think chores take precedence. I love your blanket so far and can’t wait to see it finished!

    Great start Jen! I laughed out loud at some of your self-deprecating humour.

    Looking forward to the next vlog!

    • Jen Jen says:

      Thank you, Rayna! I was very nervous the first time; I think I settle in a bit more in later episodes. I appreciate that you’ve checked me out! (Plus I’m so bad at taking pics and blogging about finished projects these days, it’s a good way to keep up with what I’m doing!)
