Episode 30: Lot's of Yarn!

Kit Kat Korner

This week was an interesting one and that is all I can really say :) The flavors chosen were Baked Cheese Bun, Purple Sweet Potato and Sakura Matcha. 
All were tasty, but very difficult to describe!

On this episode we pulled the shinshu apple, red bean and passionfruit chili kit kats! All were very tasty - the passionfruit one had a surprising kick to it.

KAL Talk!!

Our Lisa-A-Long ends on Wednesday August 31st. As long as the thread is open you can enter your projects. The thread will be locked that evening. Winners will be drawn on our next episode. There are now two prize packs.

Our next KAL will be a Hedgehog-A-Long! Any project new or previously started using at least 50g of Hedgehog Fibers yarn will be eligible. If it’s a wip, there should still be a decent portion of work to be done. If mixing HF yarn with other yarn, the HF yarn should be at least 50% of the project. This KAL will start September 1st and run until September 30th. There will be one hedgehog themed prize pack.

Aryn’s planned project - The Karen Double Layer Mittens

Tiffany’s planned project - in the works!

Tiffany visited two shops in Burlington - Johanne’s KnitnStitch and Spun Fibre Arts

Aryn received her August mystery box from Rosie’s Moments on Etsy. This box was Jungle Book themed and was so much fun! We missed it in the unboxing, but it also included a really nice shawl pattern.

If you liked this box, her September boxed will be themed around Black Beauty (yes I’ve already signed up!)

On this episode we picked out the rum raisin and melon kit kats. The melon was a mix of cantaloupe and green melon flavour, and the rum raisin was sweet with a definite hit of rum!

We were BAD this week. You should not talk to yarny friends at night because they make you spend money.

We both received an order from Log House Cottage on Etsy. Aryn chose the Squishy Sock yarn in Willy Nilly, and Tiffany chose the MCN Sport Sock in pinks and blues

We also both nabbed a Hedgehog Fibres grab bag. Squeee!

We forgot to mention - there will be a Hedgehog A Long in September!! So go grab some Hedgehog Fibres yarn now if you don’t already have some. There will be a fun hedgehog themed prize pack :)

On this episode we picked out the red bean sandwich and citrus kit kats. The citrus was Delicious. Even Tiffany liked it!! The red bean sandwich was very subtle - it would have been nicer if the flavour was stronger because I LOVE red bean.
