Or rather, almost Midsummer…
I knit the sweetest little sweater for Mabel last week. It’s called the Fairy Dust Cardigan, and I knit the size 1 year. Using two skeins of my sport weight wool, I could have knit long sleeves, but opted for short. That made for a super quick knit and Mabel will be able to wear it this fall. I just need to pick out some buttons. I love it so much that I want to knit another, maybe in some of my olive green goldenrod dyed yarn. There will be several pairs of naturally dyed sport weight skeins in our shop update, heavily inspired by this cardigan. I also have a handful of the natural grey skeins. You can knit up to the size 2 with just two skeins.
Jonny was able to make some of his rustic red oak cutting boards for this update, and I have goat’s milk soap that I will be listing as well. We won’t be listing quite so much as usual, but I’m pleased that we were able to squeeze in some creativity amongst all the work associated with selling our old house.
Our oldest son, Seth, has listed a bunch of his hand turned candlesticks in his shop and he also has some keyed fossil sets available right now. If you order from both of our shops and leave us a note, we will combine your orders and refund the extra shipping!
The update will go live at 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday, August 1st. I’ll close up the shop by mid-afternoon on Thursday, August 3rd so that I can focus on packaging up orders and getting them out the door, hopefully before the weekend.
