Hi! 👋 Heather here.
Let's party down with some Heather's Happenings from last time we chatted.
July has been fun and fast-paced which feels like a big change to my system. My husband Thomas and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary with a few days off from work, a farm dinner and a trip to our favorite sushi restaurant here in Oceanside.
Another fun thing we did was see a local production of Something Rotten which was about the bards of London and the "invention" of the first musical. The whole play is a very funny take on Shakespeare and his contemporaries. It's packed with tons of jokes about musicals, some of which I understood but there were lots of laughs at other times, so I assume, if you're into theatre you'd really enjoy!
As for us here at this yarn company I call Ewe Ewe, we rereleased an oldie but really goodie knitting pattern called Elevensies.
Elevensies is a sweet and lightweight summer shawl that designer Meaghan Schmaltz styled all off the number 11.
Plus, it's on SALE for 11% OFF through the end of July so now is the time to grab this pattern! Use code: SAVE11 at checkout. Shop Elevensies sale now >
Then come back to get the yarn! This pattern uses 2 balls of Ewe So Sporty merino yarn and knits up so fast because it's so cute!
It's shown here in Lemon Chiffon but it would look cute in any color of our rainbow 🌈
Along with our full blog post in Club Ewe Ewe about the Elevensies shawl, we also have a great post from our friend The Chilly Dog all about learning how to work a sewn bind off for toe-up socks like the Toe-rific Fingering Socks.
And that's not all we learned in our knitting community!
Billy and Baa taught us about their must-have product called Magnetic Keepers.
These handy little gadgets can hold needle tips together, keep track of stitch markers and tons of other ideas!
Last but certainly not least... actually probably the most... is this sweet little treat:
😍 💗 🤩
Cuddle Fluff is the newest pattern coming to Ewe Ewe Yarns!
This bite-size little baby sweater is knit using Fluffy Fingering washable merino yarn and it joins bigger siblings Fresh Squeezed, Easy As ABC and Sweet Dreaminess in being the most adorable tiny sweater knitting patterns.
With the addition of Cuddle Fluff we'll have a simple top-down raglan baby sweater in each weight of Ewe Ewe yarn; fingering, sport, worsted and bulky respectively.
That means you'll be able to choose if you'd like to knit a lighter weight or bulky sweater based on your knitting preference or where baby lives. Awesome!
Along with this new pattern I also plan to combine all four designs into one ebook so you can knit them all!
Watch for Cuddle Fluff and the Easy As Baby Sweater Collection in the next week or so!
I hope you're enjoying summer or winter where ever you may live. It's summer here in California and I've been spending as much time outside as I can!
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you found this entertaining to read and I also hope you'll join us inside Club Ewe Ewe – our free knitting community – if you haven't already!
