Last weekend was the first, Stitch.Rock.Crochet-along in what I plan on being a series. The project, a quick one that’s perfect for the season: Springtime Scarf. I really enjoyed seeing everyone’s progression, as well as getting to feel like I still get to be a part of events, even with a career and 3 kids at home — I love the internet!
Thanks to all who participated, and especially those who asked questions, offered comments, and shared pictures. Without further ado, here’s a photo re-cap of the CAL!
A few of the participants’ supplies ready to go!
“I’m excited to do a knit [sic] along! Plus I’ve never had a springtime scarf so this should be fun!”–tltyog (via Rav)
“I’m in & I’m a newbie to crochet! A knitter to date!”–Penny Eaton (via FB)
“I’m in! This scarf looks FUN!”– Julia Painter (via FB)
“Chaining on!” (New term I’m trying to make big with the kids. ;-))
A few shots of crochet-alongers’ WIPs.
“First row ♥”— Angela Rae (via FB)
“Just getting started, also HAD to use something from the stash, Bernat Softee baby & a G hook, my girlfriends: “The Crochet Babes” are coming over tomorrow & we’re going to CAL with Vickie’s CAL!”— Roberta Thome (via FB)
“Stopped off at JoAnn’s last night and my son picked out two colors for me to choose from (Grey-ish and Camel-ish). I can’t decide which I like better, so I guess I have to do two scarves! I’ll “chain on” tonight and try to keep up through the weekend.”— Mama Karen (via Rav)
“…digging this pattern, Thanks for this CAL Vickie!” — Mehere7 (via Rav)
“Thank you for a beautiful, easy, and fun pattern, Vickie!” — Art Like Bread (via Rav)
“Have made 4 scarves in the last two days. Made the last one while I was under the hair dryer.” —Rosetta Williams (via FB)
Didn’t make it for the the CAL, but still want to make the scarf? No problem! The threads (including Q&A and how-to photos) will remain up on both Facebook and Ravelry, and you can nab the pattern here.

It's almost July and that means it's time to debut YarnYAY!’s Fall/Winter Designer in Residence - the amazing, vibrant, and talented, Toni Lipsey aka @tlyarncrafts ! We're big fans of her work in both the crochet and Tunisian crochet realms and couldn't be more thrilled to have her on the design team for the season.
✨This means that, as of our July box (on sale now) YarnYAY! subscribers will receive one of her patterns, designed especially for us! 🧶
Welcome Toni, we’re thrilled to have you as part of the team! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
The majority share of the knitting, crochet, and crafts industries, and the community that supports them, are women and non-binary folk with uteruses. After yesterday's devastating supreme court decision, essentially removing women's constitutional rights over our own bodies, need to support one another. We need to love each other enough to not give up. I see you. My heart is with you.
Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to be on a Zoom action-meeting run by a major women's healthcare organization. We feel powerless, but one of the suggestions they gave for things we can do is to donate to grass-root organizations that focus on women's healthcare clinics.
