YarnYAY! June Box #50

YarnYAY! by Vickie Howell June Box #50, available exclusively at yarnyay.com!

 

It’s time for the reveal of our June box! This month also happens to mark our 50th box. As a Molly Shannon fan, I couldn’t resist taking this as an opportunity to spoof one of my favorite of her characters, Sally O’Malley. This Box is 50! (Also, it’d be a shame to put to waste my one year as a community college theater major. ๐Ÿ˜‰)

 

Ok, now without further, silly-ado, here’s what’s in this month’s YarnYAY! box.

YarnYAY! June featured yarn Chicken Coop Dyeworks Little Miss Prissy, in color: Prom Dress

 

Little Miss Prissy | Chicken Coop Dyeworks

This beautiful sport-weight yarn is 50% silk/50% merino, producing a beautiful draping fabric with a slight sheen. Our featured color is Prom Dress, which totally coincidentally matched Vickie’s own prom dress (pictured below with her brother)!

Chicken Coop Dyeworks is a Texas-based BIPOC woman-owned business.

This month’s projects center around table decor. We’re making center-out, circular table mats or coasters! The knit versions, designed by Julia, are worked in pie-like increase sections of stockinette and lace and finished with a loopy edging.

    Help! I canโ€™t seem to get the beginning right in knitting in the round starting with only 8 stitches. I can knit in the round with more stitches but just canโ€™t get the 8 going on 3-2-3 . Any suggestions?
