We had such an amazing time with Susanna Hansson this past weekend!"For The Love Of Bohus Stickning" happened over October 2nd and 3rd, and it was a jam-packed weekend full of Bohus history, knitting on fine needles with delicious Swedish yarns, laughing, swatching (!), snacking, and swagging! What a good time! Susanna is an amazing, dynamic instructor, and her passion for the Bohus story comes through in every aspect of her workshop.
Great SOAK buckets for everyone, with adorable name cards made by my amazing mother! And of close-up of the contents:
(Two skeins of Classic Elite Fresco, Poems of Color by Wendy Keele, 1 of 3 of the Bohus kits everyone received, 3 patterns from me, 1 pattern from bluegirl knits (Nichole), 1 pattern from Gardiner Yarnworks, Catalina zippered pouch from Namaste, highlighter tape from Bryson, and coupons from local businesses Underpinnings, Parts & Labour, Ground & Celilo!)
Here's a shot of all 31 participants and Susanna, with everyone's Bohus cuffs in progress:
Here are some of the beautiful vintage original Bohus sweaters from Susanna's private collection (just to make you drool a bit this morning):
I can tell you - after seeing the real angora-blend yarns from the kits you order from Sweden, one of these sweater kits is definitely going on my Christmas list.
It was a beautiful weekend, and we thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone who came back from last year, and getting to know all of the new attendees! Thank you everyone!
