YarnYAY! March Box #59
Spring is about to, well, spring, and we’re ready for it! The YarnYAY! March box #59 is filled with bright, happy, floral, and shell-inspired goodies knitters and crocheters, intended to bring a little brightness to your life.
This month’s box supports 5 (well, 7 if you count the printer and yarn manufacturer) small businesses, including my own. Thank you so much for supporting YarnYAY! so we can support others!
This month we’re so happy to bring you our very first variegated shade of Vickie’s yarn, Montoya Merino Light! Desert Jasper is a self-pooling combination of 3 of the line’s solid shades (Malachite, UtopiaFest & Boulder), mixed to create a bold, Springtime palette.

Shawlette Patterns | Designs by Vickie Howell & Afifa Sayeed
We love accessories that can crossover from one season to another. As Spring emerges, so can our lighter-weight scarves & shawlettes. This month we’re featuring playful versions.
The knit scarf, by Afifa, lets the yarn do the work with a simple garter stitch body, but embellished with a knit-as-you-go cable scallop edging.
The crochet shawlette, by Vickie, is made boomerang style with mini-floret edging, and optional full-floret embellishments.
Row Counter | Knitter’s Pride
Even with an arsenal of tech gadgets, there’s still nothing quite as useful for keeping track of our stitching progress, as a good ol’ fashioned row counter. This one is also pretty, so, bonus!
Knitter’s Pride employs more than 400 women in India.
