Last week we officially said “so long” to ourStitch.Rock.Knit-along. Unofficially however, it lives on. The threads on both Ravelry and Facebook are still up as well as the how-to cable video on YouTube, so feel free to continue working on cowls and sharing pictures–we love seeing ’em!
Just like any host, I was nervous that no one would show up to the knit-along party. I was overwhelmed (in a good way) by the response, though! I truly enjoyed virtually hanging out with everyone, and watching their progress (and sharing mine)! Here are just a few KAL finished projects.

Here’s what people are saying about the knit-along:
“Thanks for the great pattern and KAL!-“-Debbie Jarmusik
“I already wore [my cowl] before I blocked it, because it’s so cute I couldn’t wait!”
“The [how-to] video was great, thanks for the cable refresher…!”– Alice Reagan
“Please do knit-alongs more often. I don’t have friends who knit and this was really fun!”–Allison McCallister
“[Sheep(ish)] colors are just beautiful and vibrant!” –Stazerd (Ravelry)
“I have to say I am loving this yarn! I plopped on my couch last night and watched tv and knit the ribbing section up and I really loved the feel of the yarn–very soft. And am very pleased with the Gun Metal(ish) color.”
“Loved this project. Now I can have fun making myself one!–Jmacal9425
Dear YarnYAY! Community & Supporters,
It’s with all of the feels, and a deep breath, that I announce that month’s will be the last monthly box, as we begin the process of closing YarnYAY! by Vickie Howell.
Five and a half years ago, this business essentially fell into my lap. I was just wrapping a tour promoting the launch of The Knit Show, and in the middle of writing my 13th book, The Knit Vibe when an executive from CrateJoy approached me about co-founding a subscription box for knitters. The arm of their company that ran subscription box businesses with creators and entrepreneurs who already had a following would handle the capital, fulfillment, customer service and sourcing. I would be in charge of project design, pattern writing, product curation, marketing, media content, and anything else creative. I had longtime been wanting to add a retail aspect to my overall offerings, but with a very full plate hadn’t yet figured out a viable, responsible way to do that. This seemed ideal.

Have you met her? This is final shade of VH Montoya Merino, Sputnik Spruce, and she’s practically perfect in every way. Hand-dyed by the amazing @spunrightround I could not love this non-traditional, holiday palette more!
Get this limited edition run of Sputnik Spruce in the YarnYAY! December box. Now available at YarnYAY.com (link in bio)!
Ok, reposting the December Unboxing, because it looks like I chose the wrong posting option last time, so only 90 seconds came through. The vid’s 7 minutes, so hopefully this time it works! (It’s posted in full on my Facebook page, YouTube, and YarnYAY.com, too.) Thanks for your patience!...
