YarnYAY! August Subscription Pack
I’m thrilled to announce that for YarnYAY! August, I’ve had the pleasure of partnering up with two more amazingly talented women, designers and business owners. This month, we at YarnYAY! are focused on easy-breezy natural crafting elements as an ode to the last days of summer. Subscribe today to get the August Knit & Crochet Pack! Here’s what’s inside.
- Daytime Linen | Flax & Twine
This month, we’re working with Flax & Twine Daytime Linen. Made in Egypt, it has a beautiful natural sheen to it, and gets more and more flexible as you work with it. The natural is a boiled, dew-ret, long fiber flax. The ecru has been bleached. Watch it soften up with washing!
Flax & Twine is owned by renowned designer Anne Weil. It’s based in Denver, Colorado.
- Drawstring Bag Patterns | Designs by Anne Weil & Vickie Howell
Which project do we like best this month? It’s a draw! Well, a drawstring bag, that is. The knit version, designed by Anne Weil, employs a simple, sweet stitch with a hem channel and cleverly made drawstring. Both printed and digital versions of both patterns come with the August pack.The crochet version, designed by Vickie, leans into the stitch definition that linen allows when using a textured stitch.
*All of our YarnYAY! booklets are printed by woman-run, Austin print shop Digital Technology Professionals.
- Madder Root Dye Kit | Smile & Wave
There’s nothing more gorgeous in the textile world than the magic of natural dyeing. Designer/instructor Rachel Denbow’s work takes it to the next level! This month, she’ll share a bit of that beauty with us through both a lesson and a kit using madder root to dye our linen projects (or a piece of fabric) in a blush to terracotta palette.
Rachel’s company Smile & Wave focuses on dyeing and weaving courses, and gorgeous tools and fibers.
- Canvas Notions Bag | YarnYAY!
One can never have too many zippered bags to help keep all of our project bags organized. This canvas version will go with anything and hold everything from notions to tools!
