Episode 197: A Surprise Guest!

Image
This week I'm joined by Laura, the dyer behind Gynx Yarns and the host of the Dyer's Notebook Podcast! We've been keeping her visit a secret because we wanted to surprise our friend, Maria (Subway Knits Podcast) for her baby shower. Not only was Maria completely surprised, we had the best time!

FINISHED OBJECTS

Of course Laura and I had to knit some baby gifts. I knit the Little Jacket by Florence Merlin, using MadTosh Merino Light in "Modern Fair Isle" and "Graphite".

Laura knit Anders by Sorren Kerr using her own Gynx Yarns in "Pumpkin Patch" and "Fog".

SPINNING

This weekend I also gave Laura a crash course in Turkish Spindling. We both spun on our 3D-Printed Glow-in-the-Dark TurtleMade Turkish Spindles.

WORKS IN PROGRESS

Laura is knitting socks using her limited edition, Gynx Yarns 5-Year anniversary, colorway "Confetti & Champage".

She's also knitting on herLe Moelleux shawl by Mina Philip using Voolenvine Yarns…

Please note: I will continue posting detailed show notes, but unfortunately I will no longer have time to add links to everything.

In Other News: I started vlogging! Every now and then I'll upload a quickie video called VoolenVLOG in conjunction to my weekly podcast. These may or may not be knitting/making related. They may be tutorials, or little excerpts from my everyday life. (Sans boring parts!)
