Some of you already know Twitch because of its video games lives : a streamer (the one who broadcast) films himself playing a video game, and viewers (those who watch the broadcast) can interact with him through the chat.
But why do I speak about Twitch on a crochet blog ?
Well, Twitch recently had the great idea to open a “creative” section where the streamers aren’t gamers but painters, leather workers, graphic designers,… and of course :
hookers crocheters :p
Seeing that I was very excited about that news, Mister Ahooka got me a webcam for Christmas. And, though I’m not planning to become a regular streamer, I would really love to organize some kind of crochet circle, but on the internet ! A Cyber Crochet Circle, or CCC !
That way, should you live in London, San Fransico or Brisbane, we could still hang out, crocheting behind our screens while having a nice chat !
What do you think?
The first CCC in English will take place on Saturday, January 23th from 9pm to 12am CET, which is 3 to 6pm EST
– I’d like to apologize in advance for my bad English and my French accent, as I won’t be able to check words on Google while crocheting :p – I would really love get to know you better than through the blog ! :)
How does it work?
You’ll just have to go to : www.twitch.tv/ahooka_crochet
You’ll automatically see the live broadcast. To be able to chat, you’ll have to sign in, which is completely free and only takes a few seconds. You can already do so if you wish. Just go to Twitch.tv and click on the “sign up” button on the upper right side of the page.
Enter a username, a password, your birthday, your e-mail and tick “I’m not a robot”, then click on the “sign up” button. And that’s it !
I think of organizing one CCC each month, maybe more if you like it !
I’ll also stream randomly in between the CCC’s, mainly in French, but you can always stop by and say Hi, I will totally answer you in English !
If you d’like to be notified each time I go live, simply click on the “follow” button below the video :
Then select “notify me when the broadcaster goes live” :
That’s it !
I’m really excited about it and I hope you’ll like the idea as much as I do ^^ I can’t wait to be there !
See you soon !
I LOVE this idea, and I will try to be there!
Great ! I’m really glad to hear that ! :) I’ll remind the date in the next newsletter :)
I shared it on /r/geekycrochet as well, I hope you don’t mind!
I think it sounds fun, I want friends around the world! Makes life more interesting.
Right ! I’m really excited to be able to get to know you all better ! :)
Super chouette, j’y serai!
Génial :) A bientôt alors !
My French is very rusty so I’ll stick to English (American). This sounds like a really neat idea.
English is fine ! :) I’m glad you find it to be a good idea too ! :) See you next week maybe !
I will try to be there !!!
Great ! I can’t wait to speak to all of you :)
What a great idea! Though my english is a little poor i am looking forward to chatting with all of you. Hope i will manage my pc well with this Twitch.tv stuff.
No worries, my English is a little poor too ;) If your internet connection is good you shouldn’t have problems with Twitch
Well I’m in Jamaica and would love to ne a part of this chatfest. Great idea. Looking forward to it.
Great !! That’s really going to be an international crochet circle ! I love it :)
I am in Canada, and I will try to be available, I think it would be a great way to chat with new people
Cool ! I’m glad to hear that and I hope you’ll be able to make it :)
I won’t be able to make it this time :( it’s a great idea! Would love to join next time! Thank you!
No worries Donna, there will definitely be a next time :)
It’s a great idea! I may not be able to join you this time, I work Saturday mornings till unless it’s raining. I’ll pray for rain on that day!
Hi Vivian ! Let’s pray for the rain together than :D The CCC isn’t in the morning though
J’aurais voulu y participer mais je parles pas un mot d’anglais!! snif snif! dommage pour moi. Amusez vous bien.
Reçois tu la newsletter en anglais? Et si oui veux tu que je te bascule en français?
Great idea. Being absolutely confused with time zones I just checked how to convert CET to my time zone. With being located in Germany it makes total sense xD
If I am home on Saturday I’ll be joining you with my crochet-a-long-project :D
See you yoon.
Hey Alyceen ! Yes I guess we are in the same timezone in France and Germany ! So it will be a late stream for you too :)
I’m looking forward to see you there if you can make it :)
See you !
I just missed this last one. btw it was on my birthday:) anyway I would like to try sometime in the future though. Hopefully I can get my own device and download apps soon. such a great way to connect with others everywhere:)
Right ! I really loved it !
I know it might be a little trickier for people overseas to catch the CCC because of the time zones, but I really hope some of you will be able to come anyways !
And happy birthday to you ! :)
I just found out about the CCC, so I missed the first one. This is an incredible idea and sounds like so much fun. I can’t wait for the next CCC it will really lift my spirits, talking and listening about our craft. Thank you for this!!!!
My pleasure Laurie ! I love to chat with you all while crocheting too !
This time, the CCC will be in bot French and English though, I hope it won’t be too confusing but, let’s see :)
Is everyone doing the same pattern or different patterns,
Hi Stephanie. I will announce what pattern I’ll be working on each time (this time : a bat namdoll) for those who want to do the same thing as I do. But you can also join with your current WIP and share it with us !
