SPORTY FORTY KAL

Ewe Ewe Yarns’ Heather Walpole and designer Elizabeth Smith are turning the big 4-0 this month and to celebrate they’re hosting a Sporty 40 KAL. The KAL – which kicks off on Elizabeth’s birthday (March 12) and ends on Heather’s (March 20) – pairs three colors of Ewe Ewe’s 100% merino Ewe So Sporty with a brand new, heart-shaped shawl pattern from the designer. The duo have put together yarn kits (which, of course, are $40) with inspired color combos for those wishing to join the party, but any color goes for this epic celebration!
