Crazy for Ewe this week

Shibui FW 2015 postcard

The big news this week is the Shibui Trunk Show and opening night reception.

I have long loved the yarns and designs from Shibui Knits, and I am thrilled to introduce this line to you at Crazy for Ewe. Shibui Knits are "a seamless blend of beauty and craft". Modern. Timesess. Chic. If Eileen Fisher designed for the hand-knitting market, her line might look like what Shellie Anderson has done at Shibui. The garments are clean and elegant with subtle details that introduce texture and elevate the simple to the sublime. They have this wonderful concept of mixing very fine gauge yarns to create a unique fabric that brings textural interest to a monochromatic garment.

The Shibui palette is refined and wearable. Their garments are intended to be staples in your wardrobe now and in years to come. A Shibui sweater is an investment piece because you will love it forever, and it will make you feel beautiful and confident whenever you wear it.

I mentioned that I had loved Shibui Knits for a long time, and you're probably wondering, If it's so wonderful, why the hesitation? To be honest, the first time continue reading

Beurre cream

With its crescent shape and eyelet detail Beurre is a wonderfully wearable wrap. Worked from the ruffled edge up, this is one of those projects that goes faster and faster as you go, rather than getting bigger and slower. It's a really compelling approach. Lots to knit while you're enthusiastic, and lots less as the thrill wanes ;)

Stop by and choose your color, or you can order a kit online Get started with us August First Friday 5-8 p.m. Pink drinks and a live band on The Square - lots of fun!

twp at a time toe up

In this three session class, you'll learn to knit socks from the toe up two at a time on two circular needles. Jenny, our Sock Guru, loves toe up because you can make the cuff as long as you like and use every inch of your yarn. It's a whole different process (and a different heel technique) than working socks from the cuff down, but I think you'll find it intuitive and fun - especially with Jenny leading the way.

Because they're worked two-at-a-time, there's no more second sock syndrome - when you're done, you're done! If you're

balmy medium

We had an amazing turnout for the Balmy Knitalong last Saturday! The table was completely full! We'll be meeting every Saturday for lots of weeks to help you through your Balmy. It will be fun to see how the different colors look worked up.

It's not too late to get on board with the Balmy Knitalong. Just come choose your yarn and join us Saturday at 2 p.m.

Balmy, designed by Alicia Plummer, is a pullover worked in sport weight yarn -- you can stripe or not, as you choose. The striping makes it more fun to knit and certainly more fun to wear. It's worked in one piece from the bottom up with dropped shoulders and smart shaping that's comfortable and flattering.

Join us Saturdays at 2 p.m. for the Balmy Knitalong!
