I’m not going to kid you, it’s my favorite time of year. I get just as excited for the kitsch of holiday crafting as I do for the the feast-of-fashion in the “September Issue” of Vogue Magazine. I want to gaze adoringly at all of the things!
First up, we’re rounding out September. This month I’ve been focused on the Pantone Fall palette trend of coral and wine, spying it everywhere from knitting magazines (see Jacqueline van Dillen’s Striped Shawl in the Holiday issue of Knit Simple) to the red carpet at the Emmy’s (Taraje P. Henson’s was my favorite of the bunch). Of course, it’s also the theme of our current YarnYAY! (see below) box, featuring my newest shades in my color collection of Valley Yarns Superwash!
Next up, Halloween! Keep your eyes peeled for my knit vibe-y spooky tree and garland I decorated for Treetopia. That’ll go live on October 3rd. In the meantime, though, I’ve done a round-up of just some of my creepiest crafts for your handmade-Halloween enjoyment.
Lastly, we’re just gearing up for the most wonderful season of the year, knit & crochet wear time. Thanks for knitting, crocheting, and crafting-along with me!

YARNYAY! FALL BOX REVEAL:
Every season, YarnYAY! presents a new box for knitters who are ready to dive into a more in-depth project than our regular monthly boxes. For Autumn, we've gone mad for plaid, and are thrilled to have partnered with FOUR other (besides mine) woman-owned, small businesses. (Tap to see.)
We're shipping these box beauties on Tuesday 10/17 and only have a limited amount. Reserve yours today, in whatever palette speaks to you, and we'll get it to you ASAP. Link in @vickiehowell bio, or visit yarnyay.com...
FREE Pattern 🚨 Alert: The Ginger Spice Bi-Color Brioche Scarf! We couldn't resist whipping up this beauty out of the YarnYAY! October featured yarn @thefibrecompany &Make Aran (in colors Spill the Tea and Mon Ami). Make it to match either pair of the mitt patterns that come with our October Box, or make it on its own. You do you!
This pattern comes free with the purchase of &Make Aran yarn from our shop. Add the pattern to your cart, and the discount will appear at checkout. Who's feeling spicy? yarnyay.com (link in @vickiehowell bio).
The Forager wrist warmers by @hellogavriella (and featured in the YarnYAY! October Box) might be my favorite crocheted mitt pattern we've ever included in one of our monthly boxes. The wool/alpaca blend of @thefibrecompany &Make Aran yarn is the perfect medium for textured linen stitches. Oh, and the peek-a-boo detailing at the top-edges, is *chef's kiss"!
Treat yourself to the October Box to get this pattern (plus THREE more!), yarn, and a couple more awesomely autumnal items. Link in @vickiehowell bio (or go to yarnyay.com) to learn more.
