What's Coming from Ewe Ewe Yarns in 2022!

What's Coming from Ewe Ewe Yarns in 2022!


Heather here šŸ™‹ā€ā™€ļø Happy New Year!Ā 

I am happier than usualĀ to flip the calendar to a new year. 2021 felt like a real rollercoaster of challengesĀ as a small business owner and I'm ready for a fresh start!

I have a year of knitting planned out for us and here's my overview!

Topic 1: TheĀ Year of Color

This year we'll be talking about my favorite thing... COLOR! šŸŒˆ

I'm sure you'veĀ heard of the PantoneĀ® Color of the Year, but here at Ewe Ewe we love all the colors and we can't just pick one. How boring!

We're going to talk about 12 colors instead, in yarn of course.

For each month I have a chosen a shade of Ewe Ewe yarn and throughout that month we'll talk about why it's here, what it represents, and of course how to mix and match that color for amazing color pairings.Ā 

There are 25 main colors of yarn here at Ewe Ewe and each one has its ownĀ place in our color wheel.

January kicks off with the top of the color wheel with color 05 Cotton Candy!

This light pink yarn is available across the range from fingering weight to bulky including the lovely Heather's Heathers with gray blended through.

And we have projects galore to discuss!Ā 

Soon, I have an exciting email coming with 10 different ways to use this light pink yarn with other colors.

Like in one of my favoriteĀ surpriseĀ pairings -- Cotton Candy and Orange Peel! šŸ’—šŸ§”

So much pop!

That's the Fresh Squeezed baby sweater pattern which uses Ewe So Sporty washable merino yarn. Fun to knit, easy to love!

Topic 2: Knitting Concepts

Secondly, each month we'll focus on a knitting topic. I have ideas for things like slipped stitch knitting, holding two colors together for a marl, stranded color work, stripes, and textured projects.Ā 

This month we'll be talking about LACEĀ knitting!

Lace knitting projects often seem intimidating at the outset but when each technique can be identified and learned it becomes the sum of its parts rather than a daunting undertaking.

Like on the Ewe Heart Hat expertly designed by Meaghan Schmaltz.

This free hat knitting pattern features a beautiful lace heart motif created by combiningĀ different increases and decreases that you probably already know on their own.

But the real reason I chose lace knitting as the first technique of the year is because I knit a Love Note sweater and I think you should, too!

I have a full blog post coming soon with all the info on how to use Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering yarn to knit this lovely lace yoke sweater!

I hope you're looking forward to 2022 as much as I am. My needles have not stopped moving and I feel like they're going to be getting a lot more use because there's just so much inspiration coming down the pipeline!

Are you excited for any particular color? Do you have a specific technique you'd like me to cover this year? Leave a comment and let me know!

Happy Knit Year, friends!

I love your plan for the year. I would love to see marling which many shawls and wraps are including in patterns. I have tried it but I donā€™t seem to have the right colors together.
