YarnYAY! July Box #51
It’s summertime, and we’re ready for pops of color and poolside purling! This month we’ve put together a box of goodies for you that will give your summer stitching a fun, free-spirited vibe. Here’s what’s inside.
Nuance | Trendsetter Yarns
Nothing says summer like vibrant colors and organic cotton. This month’s featured yarn, Nuance, fits both bills! We chose outdoor party-inspired, self-striping shades: Popsicle Pack and Fruit Salad.
Trendsetter Yarns is a family-owned business, based in Southern California.
Macrame Inspired Bags | Designs by Vickie Howell & Designer in Residence, Toni Lipsey
Your summer project is in the bag! Or, rather is a choice of two, macrame-inspired bags. The knit version, designed by me, is worked in a lacey checkered stitch, from the top-down, in-the-round.
The crochet bag designed by Toni is worked in peek-a-boo lace, and in the round for minimal seaming.
This month we’re thrilled to introduce our Fall/Winter Designer in Residence, Toni Lipsey! Be sure to continue to follow and support her though, on Instagram: @tlyarncrafts
Retro Lip Balm | Surf’s Up Candle
A swipe of shimmering, summer-fruit lip balm will put you in vacay mode! We’ll surprise you with one of 4 scents: Raspberry, Coconut Lime, Vanilla Mint, or Mango.
Surf’s Up was founded, owned, and operated by a New Jersey-based, single mom of 4.
Bamboo Purse Handles | YarnYAY!
A good handle makes a bag! Our bamboo round versions will add dimension to your purse-y project! This month’s box comes with two, 12 mm handles that will work with either of our bag projects or most bags of similar design.
