I read the Front Post Frenzy Crochet Potholder, a free crochet pattern from guest contributor, Dedri Uys from Look At What I Made. Notes and links for this episode are available at http://freecrochetpodcast.com/28.

About the guest designer

Dedri Uys knows that people visit her blog, Lookatwhatimade, because they are as passionate about crochet as she is (or as passionate about baking as she used to be). Whether your joy is yarn or cakes, she would love for her readers to walk away from this site having accomplished something; or to feel like a little child, running up to their mom or dad, squealing “Look at what I made!”

Dedri doesn't think there is anything better for the soul than a sense of accomplishment, no matter how small the “victory”, that’s why almost everything on her site is presented as a step-by-step guide (with a few of her own “Look at what I made!” moments thrown in for good measure).

LookatwhatImade started out as an ‘anything-I-can-make-or-bake-or-fake’ blog 5 years ago and has turned into a full-on crochet fest. Things have changed drastically! The most notable change is probably the fact that Dedri has a side-kick to help her run this site; her name is Jenny and you can read all about her here.

Nowadays, the website focusses mainly on crochet tutorials and designs – which are, in the main, free for your enjoyment. Dedri is passionate about (and obsessed with) crochet and believes it is not only a craft, but a life-saving panacea. It is her therapy and has kept her medication-free for 5 years, and she firmly believes that it can help others too.

Dedri is also the proud mother of three gorgeous, whacky boys and a handsome and funny husband who has recently learned to crochet. Dedri also works as a radiotherapist 4 days a week at Charing Cross hospital. She gets to stay home with the boys on Wednesdays

Dedri is also the author of Amamani Puzzle Balls, a book of crochet patterns for amigurumi Amish puzzle balls, and the editor and one of the featured designers in Big Hook Rag Crochet.
