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 !
