Episode 114: Fabricated Fat Camp Movies

I had a weird Fat Camp/Knitting Retreat analogy thing during this week’s episode…In the moment I was convinced there were entire movies about kids loving Fat Camp. Unfortunately, it looks like Google is telling me I had an entire Fat Camp fantasy land playing in my head as there appears to be only one movie about Fat Camp. I’m going to pretend it was in a book. (Clearly that validates the whole thing somehow.)

Please note this episode will be available on ITunes, but I won’t be able to get it there until later this afternoon/evening!

SSK Pre-Orders Are Available

Oh my goodness!  The Super Summer Knitogether is less than a month away and it’s time I start getting my ducks in a row.  If you are attending and would like to pre-order a bag for pick-up during the vendor fair, I will keep them up in the shop through July 2nd, or until all the slots are filled (that shouldn’t happen).  If you are attending and you would prefer to buy your bag at the event I will have some of the commemorative bags in addition to all the other lovelies!

If you like this bag, but won’t be attending SSK, no worries!  I’ll have some available in an early August update!

Many thanks and much love,

AB
