Episode 195: Makecation!

Image
ANNOUNCEMENTS

In lieu of the 6-year "podiversary" of Yarngasm, I gifted the show (and myself) a new camera! Apologies in advance, if the quality is a little dodgy. I'm still getting used to it and working out the kinks! It's a Canon G7X, if you're curious. The actual podiversary falls on June 28th, 2016. Wheee!!!

Also, midway through recording, I managed to smudge some of my lipstick on my nose. Instead of re-recording the whole episode, I just went with it. Just know it's only lipstick. Not a flesh wound. ;) 
I'm going to be doing a 200th Episode Giveaway! Prizes will include:
- Voolenvine Yarns, colorway of your choosing on Wolke base
- Beyond Vanilla Socks by Mina Phillip
To enter: Answer one or all of the following questions in the Yarngasm Ravelry Group ...
What do you hope to see more of on the podcast?
What is your favorite Yarngasm moment?
