You may or may not have noticed that I’ve been bad about keeping up the blog. We’ve had a very busy winter here at Two Sisters and Ewe and we have some exciting news and changes here at Two Sisters and Ewe. I promise to be better about keeping our news section up to date!
The Big Sock was hand delivered to us on Friday by Cheramie! It is so exciting to have it here. The Big Sock arrived just in time for our monthly Ladies Night and San Diego’s contributions to the sock began!
Unpacking the sock took some care but with some extra helpers we got it out of the box and set up in no time.
The Big Sock arrived just in time for our August Ladies Night and most took advantage of the first chance to knit on the Big Sock.
To celebrate our time with the Big Sock Two Sisters and Ewe will be open late the next 3 Wednesday’s and we will be having the Big Sock Bash on Friday, September 18th from 6:00-9:00!
A big thank you to Joanna for coming up with this idea. To Cheramie for hand delivering it. To Heidi for being my contact and to everyone at Puffy Mondaes for doing such a great job packing it up and getting it to us!
