Just like colors and styles come in and out of fashion, so does the usage of certain animals in home decor, fashion and novelty items. Cats are a classic and probably the most used pet in print, owls were EVERYWHERE a few years back, and horses can be found on the coolest of kitsch. The animal at the top of the trend list for the past year or two though, has got to be the fox. This is likely thanks in part to director Wes Anderson’s cinematic version of, The Fantastic Mr. Fox (see our Movie Monday coverage here). Or maybe, it’s because we’re all just so darn foxy! Who knows. Regardless, those sly dogs have crept their way into every product genre possible (and also my heart.) Here are just a few of my favorite be-foxed goodies I found on the interwebs.
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!...
