Crocheting a project is sometimes more than just simply crocheting stitches. Sometimes additional steps and notions are needed to finish a project. This episode is all about those little things that make your crochet that much better, from crochet hacks to learning the best way to block your project to make it look its best.

First, Heather and Sara chat about Heather's new rainbow-themed WeCrochet pattern (#whatisheathersdesign). This is Heather's first WeCrochet published pattern.

Next, what do bobby pins, TP rolls, and a pile of yarn scraps have in common? Producer Sarah and Heather talk about their favorite thrifty crochet hacks. Learn about the budget ways to store your project, create pom poms and tassels, block projects, and more. Hear about some exciting news about a new partner of WeCrochet.

Then, Sara teaches Heather how to block her crochet projects, and how to decide whether to mist, steam, or soak a project for best blocking results.
