Join us for Olive Knits 4-Day KAL!

We’ll be joining and promoting the Third Annual 4 Day Knitalong by Marie Green of Olive Knits. Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted merino yarn will work perfectly for Marie’s new cardigan design for this blockbuster KAL happening in July.

Not sure who Marie Greene is? You might remember the Beekeeper Cardigan from last year’s 4 Day Sweater KAL or maybe you’ve seen her latest book Seamless Knit Sweaters in 2 Weeks.

Hi there! Are you heading to Las Vegas for the TNNA show in January? I will be there with all of our bouncy yarns and patterns. I’m not quite sure what to expect since this will be my first hotel-room show through the association – I’m much more accustom to the traditional booth setup! I think everyone is a bit skeptical of this style of show but it seems like there are A LOT of exhibitors! I see some other great companies on this list

Show Info

Event: TNNA Las Vegas 2018
Date: January 26-28, 2018
Ewe Ewe Yarns Booth: 519

I look forward to seeing you soon!

Introducing: Southwest Stockings KAL

Southwest Stockings Knit Along

Southwest Stockings Knit Along

Join the Southwest Stockings Knit Along in your yarn store! I'll be hosting this instructional knit-along on our main blog, posting regularly on Instagram, and in our Ravelry group. The knit along is based on my appearance on The Knit Show with Vickie Howell where I taught how to make the Southwest Stockings. 

The Southwest Stockings pattern can either make a Christmas stocking in Ewe Ewe Baa Baa Bulky merino OR cozy socks using Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted. It's a great project for a knitting group and I'd love to have your shop join me!

Option 1: Christmas stocking in Baa Baa Bulky

Option 1: Christmas stocking in Baa Baa Bulky

Option 2: Cozy socks in Wooly Worsted

Option 2: Cozy socks in Wooly Worsted

The Southwest Stockings are a design that is unique to Ewe Ewe Yarns. Using the same pattern you can make two very different items! The secret's in the yarn. Use Baa Baa Bulky to create a big bright Christmas stocking OR change to a smaller needle size and Wooly Worsted yarn to a squishy pair of socks for yourself. It's super fun!
