phase 2 - reopening

Hi there, my friend,

Thanks to Governor Hogan who has implemented Phase 2, allowing non-essential retail to re-open. And so we are open. But before we move fully into that, I want to say Thank you. Thank you to you, my lovely knitters and crocheters. Thank you for your online, Facebook, email, Instagram purchases of Quaranskeins, LYS Day kits, Albuquerque Sunset, drop-ship afghans, regular projects, yarn, needles, and more. There are not enough ways to tell you how very much I appreciate you keeping Crazy for Ewe on your mind and in your hearts. Thank you for being cheerful and patient and kind as I fumbled through my first videos, my first Facebook Lives, and my work in progress website. Thank you for watching those videos, for joining the Facebook Group, and for supporting each other around a virtual table continue

New date and time

Join me Saturday, June 13th at 10am for an up-close look at some of the best garments from Rowan's Spring Summer 2020 collection, and a special set of garments from the Rowan Mode line. It will be fun to see them in person, and I'm excited to share them with you. We'll be joined by at least one of the incredibly talented designers from Rowan Mode, so this is an opportunity you don't want to miss.

Also, don't miss the special Rowan virtual yarn tasting the following weekend, Saturday, June 20th at 10 am. I am so thrilled to have David MacLeod, Rowan Brand Manager. Order your Rowan tasting kit here and join us for a wonderful event.

Queen city sample

Beautiful sample knit by Queen City in Fierce Pink Colorway

I am all over Casapinka's stuff this year. I think it's because here colors are so fun and happy, and her projects are accessible. Hug Shot is no exception. Designed in her trademark pink, this is an easy fun accessory, and the pattern is free through June 14th with purchase from your local yarn store, thanks to her associate, Sharon, Head of Security.

I partnered with the wonderful gals at Queen City Yarns and had them put together five fabulous colorways so you have lots of options. I'll be getting photos of these up on the site tomorrow, but in the mean time, if you can tell what you want from the little pictures, by all means, order. It's a limited edition project, so please order early so you won't be disappointed.

I said in a previous newsletter, lots of us are looking for comfort from our knitting, and for many of us, that means cozy afghan. These are two that I like especially - one from Noro worked in mitered squares, and one from Berroco that features lots of cables and skill-building stitches.


Noro Taiyo Woven Stitch Blanket

This beautiful cozy blanket is fun and easy to knit -- no color work needed - the woven effect comes from slipped stitches that blend the colors into a bright happy fabric.
