Sporty Forty is a collaboration between me and Heather of Ewe Ewe Yarns after we realized we were both celebrating our 40th birthday this March! What better way to celebrate our milestone than with a fun project and Ewe Ewe’s cheerful sport-weight yarn.

We put together some great color combos and they are available as yarn kits on Ewe Ewe Yarn’s website (click here to see!). In addition, to celebrate we are teaming up to host the “Sporty Forty KAL” which will start on my birthday (March 12th) and end on Heather’s birthday (March 20th)! Details about the KAL can also be found on Ewe Ewe Yarn’s website.
