Atelier Mariekuniek Podcast - Episode 6 - And than there also is glas...



This new episode  is filled with lots of fibertalk but on top of that I also take you with me into my lampwork studio, of which I showed  a picture in the shownotes of the last episode, and give you all a demonstration on how I make my little birdbeads.

The intro and exit music is my son on his gitar playing Sauteuse from Mattheo Carcassi.

I am wearing my new dress which is  the frockpattern from Dottie Angel, a lady who I am following quit some years now. She used to have a lovely blog but nowadays you can mostly find her on Instagram and her website. The patterns I bought online and are from Simplicity. I love them and I definately will make more dresses like these,  but there are some things I will change. Well the first thing is to go down a size because I surely used one size to big. I also don't understand why the neckline is the same height as the frontline so that one will be raised the next time.

Off the Needles

My first yolk sweater.  Based on the Afmæli - 20-year Anniversary Sweater by Védís Jónsdóttir and with some details of the FRIDA’s emerald sweather . I adjusted the colorwork design because I was using lesser colours than the pattern calls for and also because I used the felted tweed yarn by Rowan yarns I bought at Wol! in Haarlem which is a  is thinner yarn.  I added an extra design element to host2 extra rows of decreases but as a result the sleeves turned out  way to long so I will have to do some adjustments to make them shorter, but for now I call this a finished object ;)
The other thing I finished but will talk about in the Work in progress section because I am not totally happy with the finish are the Serious socks - Ernstige sokken. These socks are for the boyfriend of my youngest niece and are knitted with Zauberball Crazy from Schöppel yarns in the Meilenstein colourway. Well I am not happy with the way I did bind off one the socks but that's a minor detail and soon they will be ready and blocked.

Work in Progress

Smooshy Marin. This shawl I am knitting as a birthdaypresent for my daughter, she choose the yarn herself, the pattern we choose together and is the Marin pattern is by Ysolda Teague knitted with Dream in color Smooshy in the Herbal 706 colourway. I am about halfway throught the pattern and it's a lovely knit.

Next thing I am working on is my Andy cardigan by Junko Okamoto. I am knitting it with my own homespun yarn from the Scottish woolblend I bought at at Meervilt in Haarlem. It's going very fast but it is a bulky weight  cardigan.

I am also knitting my John Crazy socks which are plain vanilla socks knitted from the top with a heelflap and cusset. These socks are for the boyfriend of my oldest niece and are knitted with Zauberball Crazy from Schöppel yarns in the Jacky wie Hose colourway.

The last thing on my needles is my Sunny Afternoon tee which I am knitting with my own homespun I spinned from a Indie dyied shetlandwool/linen/silk blend from Elfenwolle. 
I also am using BC Garn Colori yarn in green and neutral for a two color rib on neck, sleeves and bottom.


I also am showing you the results of two other blends I bought from Elfenwolle.  and spinned and am planning to knit both of the yarns into cowls, one for my son and on for my husband.

My newest obsession is getting more experienced in natural dyeing and I invested in some dyeing materials. For instance I bought materials to make an indigo vat and some dried materials for dyeing at Meervilt in Haarlem.  I hope to show some results in future episodes.

In the last secment of this podcast I am giving you all a little tour into my lampwork studio and give you a demonstration about how to make a little birdbead like the one below.

Atelier Mariekuniek Podcast - Episode 5 - Better late than never ;)









Better late than never is my motto because this podcast I recorded back in February but than life happened and I totally lost my podcasting mojo and forgot to edit and upload it. So when I thought about recording again I decided to first edit and upload this episode, because it would be sad to not use it.


The intro and exit music is my son on his gitar playing Sauteuse from Mattheo Carcassi.

My first yolk sweater.  Based on the Afmæli - 20-year Anniversary Sweater by Védís Jónsdóttir and with some details of the FRIDA’s emerald sweather . I adjusted the colorwork design because I am using lesser colours than the pattern calls for. I am using the felted tweed yarn by Rowan yarns I bought at Wol! in Haarlem and because this yarn is thinner, I had to use more stitches for the body and therefore also needed to decrease more stitches than the pattern called for.  So I added an extra design element to host these decreases, as a result the sleeves eventually turned out  way to long so I will have to do some adjustments to make them shorter, but for now I call this a finished object ;)

Smooshy Marin. This shawl I am knitting as a birthdaypresent for my daughter, she choose the yarn herself, the pattern we choose together and is the Marin pattern is by Ysolda Teague knitted with Dream in color Smooshy in the Herbal 706 colourway


Yarn and More…

I didn’t buy any yarn butt I did  bought a woolblend of Scottish woolfleece at Meervilt in Haarlem, which I am spinning to make yarn for a long cardigan I am planning to make.


I also talked about spinning yarn from a raw fleece from a milksheep I bought from a local farmer last year and dyeing some of it using the Landscape dyes by Landscapes of Australia.


I also bought a lot of fabric to make myself some new clothes at the fabricmarket which is held only twice a year in spring and autumn and showed the items but I don’t have links to show for them.

Hopefully you will enjoy my podcast or have enjoyed my podcast and hopefully I will be able to record a new episode soon

Happy knitting!

Podcast discovery...
Woolful podcast by Ashley Yousling from North Idaho. Which is not a video podcast but is a lovely podcast to listen to. Every episode is started with this lovely introtext:
Welcome to woolful, a podcast for fiberfolk. I am excited to share with you some incredible people I had the opportunity to talk to in this community we love so much. From shearers and shepherds to knitters and shop owners, here is where you get to listen to a little part of their fiber journey.
Which in my opinion is an amazing start of a super wonderful podcast and if you aren’t already a listener I highly recommend you become one because it’s so interesting and inspiring to listen to all the stories!
