Are you ready? It's time for the San Diego Yarn Crawl! Starting Thursday, September 17 and going through Sunday, September 20 knitters across San Diego County are going to get crazy with yarn and all things knitting! Woohoo!

This year I'll be at two local yarn stores chatting about Ewe Ewe Yarns and also signing copies of my new book Scarves in the Round. Each store will have copies of the book available for purchase and I can sign it for you right there on the spot! I'll even have garments from Scarves in the Round on hand for you to see, try on and get inspired by!

It's going to be a ton of fun! I hope you can make it!

Get the story behind Ewe Ewe Yarns!

On Thursday, June 18 I had the pleasure of being a guest on the Yarn Thing with Marly Bird podcast. It was a fun hour of chatting and answering questions about how I developed the yarns and built my company. Ewe Ewe Yarns was started by me, Heather Walpole and it all began with just one yarn in seven colors. I talk all about how I chose the fiber, colors and the big decisions I made when starting my own yarn company!

We also talk about my new book Scarves in the Round and some of the inspiration behind the scarves, cowls and neckwarmers that went in to the book. There's all types of projects starting with the simple and moving through to lace, texture and color work. Check it out!
