Annie's Yarn Shop + A Giveaway!

Annie's Craft Store is excited to show off their new yarn shop! Annie's has been a great partner with Ewe Ewe Yarns for years, and there haven't been that many years of Ewe Ewe! They feature our Wooly Worsted yarn and knitting patterns in both their store and glossy magazine, Creative Knitting

The new Annie's Yarn Shop looks refreshed, is easier to navigate and has a lot of neat shopper benefits. You can sign up for Annie's Yarn Trend Report to see what's new and fresh at their website. Maybe try watching a few knitting stitch guide videos to help you with a new knitting technique. They're both very informative!

I like the new Build-A-Kit feature that helps you find patterns and yarn all in one easy step. The Easy As ABC baby sweater is so quick! Choose your size, pick the yarn color combination and, POOF! Pattern and yarn right to your door! 

Did I mention all the yarn is 20% off, too! Yes! Use promo code: NEWYARN to receive 20% off all yarn through January 23. Woohoo!

The Giveaway! 

In celebration for this big yarn store update, Annie's wants to give one lucky Ewe Ewe Yarns fan a full year's subscription to Creative Knitting Magazine! (I know there's some great Ewe Ewe knitting patterns and an article written by me all coming up this year inside that magazine!)

Back to Basics in Creative Knitting Magazine

The Winter 2014 issue of Creative Knitting magazine features some adorable patterns using Ewe Ewe yarns. There is a large knitting pattern feature called Back to Basics that shows off just how wonderful our yarns are for children's garments.

Happy Cheer baby hoodie knitting pattern in Ewe Ewe sport-weight yarn

I love the Happy Cheer baby cardigan! This pattern uses our Ewe So Sporty washable merino yarn in the Wheat color. That means you can knit this for the sweet little guy in your family and then just throw it right in the washer and dryer! Easy care, happy life!

Cambridge Cap & Scarf

This cute Cambridge Cap & Scarf look so cozy and warm for your mini-me. As Creative Knitting says, "Match a deliciously soft yarn with easy stripes and you get instant chic style!" I couldn't have said it better myself! This set uses our Wooly Worsted washable merino yarn in colors Wheat and Sky Blue, a sophisticated and sweet color combo.

Check out the entire issue at creativeknittingmagazine.com or pick it up at your local yarn shop or book store. There's always tons of great patterns in every issue!

The new special issue of Creative Knitting Magazine features a stunning wrap in our Wooly Worsted merino yarn. Casual Conversions is just that! A light wrap with beautiful drape and a convertible form. 

Beginning from the center out, the gentle lace really shines in the pure versatility of the wearing options. You're going to have fun with this one.
Casual Conversions

Designed by Theressa Silver, Casusal Conversions is worked from the center of the back out to the edges. The buttons are attached at the end and can be worn through any eyelet you'd like. I think you would have fun with this one!

Tutorial: Knitting with two colors + a free pattern!

Check out my newest knitting tutorial over at Creative Knitting Magazine! Have you ever wanted to try knitting with more than one color of yarn? If so, this tutorial is perfect for you. There's a simple free baby hat pattern using two skeins of Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted yarn.

Wooly Worsted is washable so it's great for baby hats. It's a soft merino that won't irritate baby's skin. Plus, it comes in 20 great colors that mix-and-match perfectly!
