Put away the tinsel and the holly,
Change your mood from being jolly;
As summer breezes turn to fall,
We must say It’s Halloween Ya’ll!!! (no plans to quit day job for poetry career)
Even though it’s just turned August, and temperatures are still so hot, we are dreaming of October when the weather turns cooler, and pumpkins, changing leaves and warm spices abound. One of our favorite fall colorways returns to usher in autumn: Forbidden Wood. With all the shades of fall tempered by deep, dark shades of wine and dark forest magic, this colorway is a beautiful path to your autumn projects.
The Halloween Treat….31 Days of Mystery is still in the shop for a limited time. Surprise and delight yourself every day in October with yarn and goodies. These will ship in plenty of time to start your journey on October 1. This is a sock and color lover’s dream with over 1,200 yards of yarn in 18 10-gram micro-minis and a full size hank.
If you didn’t get to treat yourself last week, we still have our preorder for Barbie’s Party Pack open for a short time. All the pinks and brights you’d expect to celebrate our favorite fashion doll. This party pack features 10 mini hanks on your choice of fingering or DK base. Make a fabulous shawl or trim a bevy of socks with these beauties.
A shot of color for the shop as we restock with Heliotrope, Cavendish and Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy on a variety of bases, and wait til you see Pretty in Pink on Brontë.
Sparkle never fails to delight, and our special selection of Dickens and O.Henry yarns are just the thing to help you shine a little brighter.
We’ve got new pins! Do you collect pins? We’ve got a new Olive & Two Ewe pin and our classic yarn ball dangle pin, and everyone loves the Sloth Knitting and Crochet pins.
What to do with all those great little pins we collect? We’ve got your covered with our new Saturday Morning Ewe Crew Pin Banners. Made of sturdy canvas with a cute sheep Olive & Two Ewe Logo, you’ll want to grab one of these to show off your fancy pinnage.
There are just a few Christmas in July items left in the shop. Check them out for gift giving or for yourself — a little retail therapy counts as self-care! Also in the shop are all kinds of goodies, from fancy scissors, to embroidery kits and the neatest little embroidery stitch reference cards
Are you making the Cumulus Blouse with us in our Make-a-Long (MAL)? We cast on August 1st, but you can still get your yarn order in and catch up with us. This simple beautiful sweater is knit with two strands of our fluffy delicious Bronte, a suri alpaca and silk blend. Pick up one of our kits to make yours.
