Many apologies for Sari being half out of the video frame on this one. We're a bit rusty and our camera doesn't have a convenient way for us to view what's on the screen while it's recording, so we have to guess and hope we've hit the right spots on the sofa. Clearly we haven't. I hope it's not too distracting.
After a year long hiatus, Sari and Jonas return, thanks in large part to some wonderful people they met while selling at markets in May and June. Updates on most recent and current knits (lots of socks and first time cables). The World Cup is mentioned, but we keep our fannishness in check. We share recaps from Shepherd’s Harvest and Zombie Knitpocalypse 2018 and try to get everyone excited for Cloud 9 knitting retreat and market. We show off new yarn colors! Also, we generally apologize for disappearing for a year and promise to try and do better for the rest of this one.
What we're knitting:
Fingerless mitts in the Dashing pattern from Cheryl Niamath using “Gentleman of Leisure” colorway from The Girl Who Crafted’s Outlander Season 3 yarn club. (First cable project ever!)
A hat (that was still quite damp) using the Caligo pattern from Marie Petra using “Lord John Grey” colorway from The Girl Who Crafted’s Outlander Season 3 yarn club. (Second cable project ever!)
In May we were selling at Shepherd’s Harvest Sheep and Wool Festival. It was a super great two-day experience. The first day was cold, but we learned valuable life lessons about yarn in hoodie pockets and the shoe penetrating coldness of concrete floors. We got to talk to so many people. It was great. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and talked to us!
In June we were selling at Zombie Knitpocalypse as well as attending the retreat. It was our second year selling. Again, thanks to all who came to visit us. It was great to catch up with friends and meet new people. There might be some exciting future things in the works, but we can’t talk about them yet.
In July, like later this week on the 14th of July, Sari will be at the market for the Cloud9 Knitting Retreat. The market is on Saturday, July 14th from noon to 5pm. The market is open to the public. So, come stop by and visit. It is at the Hyatt Regency by the Mall of America in Bloomington, MN.
