January Events: Speaking + Teaching


Hello, friends!

It's a fresh new year and I'm getting "out there"! I have two events scheduled for January and I'm really looking forward to them. I'll be speaking at the San Diego North Coast Knitters Guild on the 9th and teaching a color theory class at Yarning for You on the 20th. 

San Diego North Coast Knitters Guild

Meeting: Tuesday, January 9, 2018 1:00 to 3:30 pm

Where: San Dieguito United Methodist Church, 170 Calle Magdalena, Encinitas, CA 92024

I will be the guest speaker for the general guild meeting! I'll be talking for about an hour about how I started Ewe Ewe Yarns, we we've come, and looking toward the future. I'll also tie in a project that uses the fun color palette of our yarns.

Membership is required for this guild but the yearly fee is only $25 and they get great speakers through the year!

Hues You Can Use: Choose the Right Colors for Your Knitting Project

Time: Saturday, January 20, 2018 from 9 am to 12 pm.

Where: Yarning for You, 1001 W San Marcos Blvd. Ste 180, San Marcos, CA 92078

What we're up to: As knitters and creative people, we often find ourselves drawn to a specific set of colors, but why? We can use the principles of color theory to explain this and even help choose which color should be the main color of a project and which should play a supporting roll. We’ll apply this new knowledge to a picking the colors for a scarf and swatch our new technique! The pattern is included in the cost of the class and will be provided at the class.

Skill level: Any level welcome!

Fee: $45

Materials: 1-2 balls of 3 colors of Ewe Ewe Yarns Ewe So Sporty yarn. (Picking out your colors is part of the class and will be done during class).
US 8 (4.0 mm) knitting needles

Sign up: See class page for more details and call Yarning for You at 760-744-5648 to register.

I hope to see you!

Vickie Howell can show you how it's done!

Vickie Howell worked up a great class for our new Doodle Stitch Beanie! This hat features an alternating stitch pattern that is interesting to both knit and look at. Take a peek:

The Doodle Stitch Beanie uses two balls of Ewe So Sporty yarn in your favorite colors. Plus, Vickie teaches a free tutorial right on her Facebook page. Awesome! 

You can get the pattern here or on Ravelry and find Ewe So Sporty yarn at your favorite yarn store or online.

Watch the video with Vickie Howell below and then use those same steps to knit your own Doodle Stitch Beanie!

Class Time! Color Theory in Columbus, OH

It's not often that I teach a class but when Esther from Yarn It & Haberdashery called me and asked me to come visit I jumped at the chance! I'll be in town for our yarn industry trade show and on Thursday night I'll be teaching you all about color theory and how to choose coordinating colors for your knitting projects! 

Color is kinda my thing. I love it, I dream about it, I ponder new colors every day. All the colors of Ewe Ewe yarn are my own and they each have a reason and a purpose in our color wheel.

It's going to be a great class and I think it will be great for every level of knitter. We'll go over how to choose colors that work together and why they do. Then I'll show you how to break those rules to get the results you want! If you're in the Columbus area, I hope to see you there!

Here's the details:

Ewe Ewe Color Theory Workshop
Thursday, May 28, 2015, 6-7 pm
Instructor: Heather Wapole, Owner of Ewe Ewe yarns
Level: All Welcome
Max 15 students
Class Fee: $15

As knitters and creative people we often find ourselves drawn to a specific set of colors. If a project calls for three colors of yarn we can choose them quickly but from those three colors how do we choose which yarn will act as the main color and which colors play the supporting roles? In this workshop Heather will present an interactive class on how to choose colors and what combinations will work in the most unexpectedly pleasant ways from all the yarns in our store. Attendee’s will receive 10% discount on all Ewe Ewe yarn purchased during this class. 

Materials: an open mind and notepad, pencil for notes.
