The folks at Cardstore.com e-mailed me the other day to ask if I’d check out their site. “Why yes”, I replied, “I’d love to”. Although I already had holiday card plans I didn’t in fact, have gift tags on hand.
In a perfect world, I’d make every aspect of the gifts on my Christmas giving list. Alas though, as a working gal with deadlines, and a mom of 3 children to enjoy the season with, that’s not always realistic. Thanks to Cardstore.com however, I was able to infuse a wee bit of handmade goodness into each and every present I hand out. I created customized gift tags, using a photo I took of the Amigurum-tree Ornament I crocheted–and in 3, easy steps they were ready to order! Here’s how:
Today's the day we kick off the Crochet-along for the @pompommag Overprint Bag, in partnership with designer @juliamadill
We've put together Montoya Merino Light kits in my YarnYAY! shop, but no matter which yarn you use (the called-for yarn is rad, but a little harder to get here in the states -- see Julia's great post about yarn substitutions), we'd love for you to make yours along with us!
Psst...YarnYAYers get a special 20% off the digital issue pf Pom Pom. See our kit page (tap or go to yarnyay.com) for details!
Join the YarnYAY! Facebook Group and/OR Ravelry Group to follow along. Hope to see you there!
The March YarnYAY! Box crochet project is 𝘍𝘭𝘰𝘳𝘦𝘵, a crochet, boomerang shawlette. The shape is more commonly seen in knitted pieces, but I love it because if you want the piece to be larger, you just keep working it in the established pattern.
𝘍𝘭𝘰𝘳𝘦𝘵 is worked with a sweet, as-to-go edging and optional, appliquéd, chain-florets. I designed it to be worn as shown here, scarf-style, but with the option to go full-shawl. You do you!

MODEL FUN FACT:
The gorgeous human modeling this shawlette, Kat Roberts, was the main featured young woman (swipe to see) in the infamous 1992, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog video “Nothing But a G Thang”. That video didn’t age well, but man, she sure did! 🤩
