YarnYAY! December Box #44
Montoya Merino | Vickie Howell
This month we’re sharing the first in my line of yarns, Montoya Merino (named after my father’s side of the family), in a YarnYAY! box exclusive color, Santa Fe Scarlett. This color is a rich, tonal red, perfect for the holidays and beyond!
Vickie Howell (hey, that’s me!) is a designer, author, and the founder of YarnYAY!

Welted Mitts patterns | Designs by Vickie Howell & Designer in Residence, Natalie Thomas (aka @detroitknots)
This month we’re working with welts to make wristwarmers! The knit fingerless gloves, designed by Vickie, alternate between twisted rib, welted stripes, and stockinette stitch.
The crochet wristers, designed by Natalie Thomas, use slipped stitches paired with extended half-double crochet stitches to create a welted pattern.
This month concludes Natalie’s time as our 2021 Designer in Residence. If you get a minute, reach out to her @detroitknots to wish her well!
Waxed Canvas Maker’s Sack | Della Q + YarnYAY!
We teamed up with our friends at Della Q to create our own shade of their Maker’s Sacks. We love these project bags so much, as they get better with wear!
Della Q is part of the Jimmy Beans Wool family of businesses.
Sweater Baby Goats Sticker | Michele Maule
Do we need to say more than baby goats in tiny sweaters? We think not!
