|LYS Day as proclaimed by TNNA is Saturday, April 30. Being as how we had just paid a non-refundable deposit on our spring vacation trip 2 days before their email hit (not to mention it had been roughly 2 years since we had heard from TNNA), we are closed the week of April 23-May 2!|
We’ll be celebrating LYS WEEK from May 3-May 7, culminating in a Yard Yarn Party (a/k/a YaYa Party!) on May 7 from 10 until we’re done ~ complete with cookies & cupcakes, door prizes and special offerings! Bring a chair, bring your beverage, bring your friends, pick a new project … and you just might want to bring your bug spray!
Again, we will be closed from April 23-May 2 for our spring break (not to mention its my birthday week), which is why we’re celebrating LYS Week! Haus of Yarn & Bliss Yarns will kick off the week on April 30, and all three of us will be celebrating the first week of May. So, start with them ~ then come see us!
Our shop hours are Tuesday-Saturday from 10 am-2 pm (((except for that week we just told you about because we’ll be closed April 23-May 2))). We look forward to seeing you when we get back!
It’s baaaaack! Time for “The Three Shop Shawl, The Sequel”!
You hopefully recall that in 2020 Ewe & Company, Haus of Yarn & Bliss Yarns collaborated in a three-skein project, the objective being to purchase a skein of yarn from each shop for your project. This proved to be a rousing success, and we had such a good time we’ve decided to do it again!
We selected the Interlude Shawl by Lisa Hannes … 3 skeins of worsted weight, with just enough pattern to keep it interesting!
Our shop models are posted below:
Ewe & Company (first pic) used Bad Sheep’s Vivant from E&CO for the mesh work, Plymouth Super Merino in Natural from Haus of Yarn, and Malabrigo Rios in Almond Blossom from Bliss;
Bliss Yarns (second pic) used their Haute Knit Trevor Morgan (DK) in Cinnabar Peacock, Haus of Yarn’s Malabrigo Rios in Teal Feather, and E&CO’s Bad Sheep Rebasserie;
Haus of Yarn (third pic) used their Camelia Rainbow Sprinkles, Malabrigo Rios in Valentina from Bliss, and Dream in Color’s Smooshy with Cashmere (fingering held double) in Mint Drop.
It’s kinda your own personal yarn crawl ~ just visit each of the shops and we’ll get you going (the pattern is our treat, just ask when you purchase your first skein)! Bring your friends and make a day trip!
Here’s the pattern link if you’d like to peruse the project pages for some other color combination ideas, as well. (We particularly liked this one, she added more of the mesh & a picot bindoff … fancy! Frankly, I wish I’d seen that one before completing mine ~ but I’ve moved on!)
