Portable knitting projects don’t have to be boring! Knitwear designer and author of Yarnplay Lisa Shobhana Mason shares a few colorful and unique projects that are small in scale. She demonstrates a simple broken ribbed scarf and matching hat with a band in the same stitch pattern. She then shares her pattern for a bright seed stitch clutch purse with a stockinette panel for buttons.
Wrist wear is what it is all about today. Host Jennifer Perkins cooks things up by melting vinyl records to make them into a wrist cuff. Host Vickie Howell introduces us to leatherworker Mark Stowe, who has a rockin’ take on the all-purpose leather cuff. Host Jen Arntson incorporates a traditional leatherworking style, called trapunto, on vinyl to create a wrist strap bag.
The Stylelicious ladies create fashions out of dollar store finds. Host Vickie Howell creates a corset top out of washcloths. Host Karly Hand makes a skirt out of an umbrella, and Host Jennifer Perkins makes a purse out of a photo album and toy snakes.
Stylelicious takes things personal as we add individuality to your wardrobe. Host Vickie Howell revamps a vintage tie by adding a peek-a-boo iron-on transfer. Host Hope Perkins jazzes up old jeans with rubber stamps and fabric paint. Anne Marie Beard invites us to a purse party, where party-goers order purses to their own personal specifications.
Sorry about the quick cut-and-paste post without photos. Yesterday was a rough day–trying to recuperate.
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.
