YarnYAY! 2022 YAY-vorite Things
12 Days of YarnYAY, Day 3: YarnYAY! 2022 YAY-vorite Things
It’s Day 3 of 12 Days of YarnYAY!, and we’re excited to launch our 2022 YAY-vorite Things! For a limited time, you’ll be able to find a small curated collection of some of our favorite crafty things, from twelve fellow indie brands, in our shop. Here are this year’s selections!
Pom Pom Quarterly, Issue 43
Oh, how Team YarnYAY! adores PPQ, and the Winter 2022 issue just deepens that adoration!
Great knits are like great art because they make us think differently, and the process of making can be even more revelatory! Showing us how we can look to, and beyond, our horizons when it comes to craft, the 43rd issue of Pom Pom Quarterly is inspired by the work of women artists Etel Adnan and Hilma af Klint.
Hello Bargello, Holiday Ornament Kit
Team YarnYAY! loves pretty much everything Hello Bargello creates, and we’re definitely smitten with these magical ornaments!
Constructed of individual strips of bargello joined together with beautiful wooden beads, these ornaments are easy enough for beginners to make and quick enough to finish in an afternoon.
This kit includes materials to make 3 large ornaments (flower or star shape) and 3 small ornaments (single teardrop shape).
CocoKnits Super-Absorbant Knitwear Care Towel
It’s like a Sham-wow for your knits, and we dig that! Cocoknits Super-Absorbent Towel speeds up the process of drying hand washables by absorbing excess water from your garment before air drying. Made from a lightweight felt-like cloth, it soaks up much more water than a regular bath towel. By gently removing excess water and shortening drying time, our towel will help your knits look their best for years to come.
Felted Sky Ornament Party Kit
We have been fans of Felted Sky ever since we featured their felted succulent kits in one of our 2020 boxes, so we were thrilled to include one of their party boxes in this year’s Yay-vorite Things!
Looking for a fun Christmas craft? Whether you’re wanting to fill up some cozy quiet time or gather together with friends and family to make Holiday memories, these festive felted baubles won’t disappoint.
This needle felting kit is great for beginners. The neat thing about this kit is that the wool balls are already formed, so you can jump to the decorating part without having to make the balls from scratch. The detailed instruction booklet and video tutorial will walk you through the process of creating each ornament, or you might decide to come up with your own unique designs.
JUL Designs Mid Century Modern Shawl Stick or Pin
Modern shawl pins are hard to find, so these sleek beauties from JUL are a score!
The Mid-Century Modern Square and Circle are metal renderings of hand-drawn shapes, representing the beauty and dynamism of imperfection and visualizing the handmade-ness of JUL knitwear jewelry. This artisanal shapes, that evoke the sleek lines and curves of mid-century modern interior design, beautifully complement the elegant forms of contemporary shawls and garments of all kinds. All of the Modern Shapes highlight the simplicity and offer a range of flexible and crisp statements that do not compete with complex stitch patterns and colorwork.
Knit Collage Mini Skein Samplers
Knit Collage has put together the loveliest mini skein sampler kit so that we can all try 5 of their yarns at once without having to commit to 5 whole skeins. You know how Team YarnYAY! loves this option of trying out new yarns (it’s in the same spirit as our monthly boxes) and this is a fantastic way to give Knit Collage yarns a test spin and see which ones resonate best with you. Along with your kit come 2 free patterns – a knit and crochet cowl. Of course, you’re free to make anything with them and we encourage you to get creative!
Knitter’s Pride Mindful Collection Knit Blockers
These are our absolute favorite blocking tools! Easy to use, the Knit Blockers speed up the blocking process in an ingenious way. Sturdy, rust-resistant stainless steel pins anchor knitting for easy blocking.
Color coordinated and packaged in their own teal-colored case.
Weaver Walker Co Beginner’s Macramé Wall-hanging Kit
We’re a sucker for a macramé wall hanging, and this kit is the answer to the mini beginner kit being a bit too, well mini, for adults who want to craft.
MORE INFO: – Everything you need except scissors is included – Step-by-step instructions with illustrated knot diagrams included, plus access to video tutorials – Once complete measures approximately 7.25″ x 22″ (inches)
Kailo Chic Felted Light Bulb Felt Garland
We’re a sucker for a felted garland and this version from Vickie’s friend (and neighbor!) Kara of Kailo Chic doesn’t disappoint! Your mantel and home will surely be Merry and Bright with their colorful felt light bulb garland.
Chiki Knitter’s Relief Balm
Vickie uses Knitter’s Relief Balm (aka Cana Bliss) regularly on her wrists and swears by it. Chiki’s triple-acting, anti-inflammatory balm works fast so you can start knitting, crocheting, or crafting comfortably in minutes and get back to your project without missing a beat!
Easy to apply with a no-mess twist-up tube so you can apply right on the spot that’s hurting – anytime, anywhere. It’s a pain eraser!
Laura Nelkin Designs Fetish Bracelet Knitting Kit
Laura Nelkin designs our favorite, beaded jewelry kits. We chose to feature 2 festive colors of Fetish, a wrap bracelet and a necklace! It is up to you which you want it to be, depending on the day! It is SUPER easy to lengthen or shorten Fetish depending on your desire….
Fetish’s focal point is a hammered metal ring. It plays with pre-strung beads and slipped stitches and is the perfect summer knit, to make and wear!
Sun Jellies Atomic Project Jelly Tote
Our hearts nearly burst when we found totes that combine some of our team’s 80’s nostalgia and mid-mod obsession! Inspired by the American ‘Shamrock Neatway’ shopper our Atomic Tote is full of midcentury charm. It stands tall and strong on a flat base, helpful for carrying heavier items like laptops or a cheeky bottle of prosecco, and has handles that lock together for extra comfort and security. Women who want an everyday bag that is practical as well as stylish will love our classic Atomic Tote.
