YarnYAY! June Pack Reveal
It’s my favorite time of this month, and every month, when I get to reveal the knitting and crochet goodies I’ve selected for the latest YarnYAY! subscription pack. Let’s do this!
- SPLENDID SINGLES | BY EMMA’S YARNS
This month’s selection is a special, mini hank (200 yds/50 gr) of single-ply fingering weight superwash merino wool, which shows its colors beautifully and feels incredibly soft. Colors appear even more tonal than normal and the effect is gorgeous, especially in our chosen shade: Iguana.
Emma’s Yarn was started by Emma, a then-15-year-old home-schooled student who was simply completing a math lesson on ratios when she fell in love with dyeing yarn. She, in partnership with her sister Aspen, turned that passion into a thriving business.
- POINTED SCARF/SHAWLETTE |BY CHRIS BAHLS AND VICKIE HOWELL
This month we’re getting to the point with our stitching. The crochet shawlette by Vickie is lacy, drapey, and works as both kerchief, or, made larger, as a shawl. YarnYAY!’s own Chris Bahls designed the knit version in an unexpected dragon’s tail shape, that can start as a scarf and grow wider to shawlette. For more from Chris, go to: leftcoastdyeworks.com
- LEATHER SHAWL CUFF | BY ALLRED LEATHER COMPANY
This handmade leather cuff will keep your scarves, shawlettes, and shawls from falling off, while adding an unexpected layer to your favorite knit or crochet accessory!
Allred Leather company is owned by Vickie’s dear friend and leather tooling artist, Dian Allred. See more of her amazing work at: allredleathercompany.com
- HIGHLIGHTER TAPE | ECONO
Highlighter tape will help you keep your place in that knit or crochet pattern. It highlights the row you’re on, then is easily removed and replaced as your project progresses!
- YAY, GAUGE! RULER
Getting the right gauge can make or break a project, especially when it’s supposed to fit an exact size. This wee, wooden ruler is an old-school gauge-check reminder and cheeky cheerleader. Yaaaay, gauge! For more fun novelty goodies check out our Shop at: yarnyay.com
