A refresh and an update

It's been a long time since I blogged about my life on the great big internets. I have refreshed my site to be just heatherwalpole.com because it reflects me best now. 

Things are going well at Ewe Ewe. I'm working on growing the business and expanding the brand's reach. It takes a long time to have a strong brand in the yarn industry. Shop owners want to know you're going to be around next season. I'm happy to say that each year the company and product line have grown and the company is starting to look the way I imagined it would. That was almost four years ago now! 

Other than that there's still three crazy dogs here with my husband and me. We spend a lot of time playing with them, cooking good food and exploring the amazing world of San Diego craft beer.  

Here's Charlie. 


And Lola. 


And Henry. 


And it's Friday so I'm going to go enjoy this martini!

What happened this week?

I found this creature in my bathtub! No thank you. Sir, I said, NO THANK YOU! I really don't mind spiders in the wild, I find their webs fascinating and their colors incredible. But don't go moving in to my home. This is my home, you make your home beyond the doors of this home. We work on a catch and release program so this giant, non-poisonous spider got scooped up and escorted outside to some nice cushy ice plant. Then I found another one on the sofa. I didn't sleep well that night.

I did some knitting on the deck. This is some kind of short sleeve sweater idea I'm having. I'm not sure if the knitting will turn into a pattern I like or not but I suppose that's the plight of any designer, knitting or otherwise. This little sweater will be for Ewe Ewe when it's complete. What's better than some Wooly Worsted merino yarn? Not much! I'm also sipping a Maker's and 7 here. Delicious. 

One dog did a weak job of guarding us from the hallway.

The other didn't bother at all and slept under the sofa.

Happy Friday, I hope your week was a success and your weekend is sunny and warm!
