The FINAL YarnYAY! Quarterly Box has arrived! For this season, we put together a cozy collection of knitterly goodies that will keep you company inside while it’s freezing outside. Here’s what we have in store for you in the Winter box! Everything from the Nordic-inspired cowl and to the squishy merino/alpaca yarn to the Winter Night candle and thematic stitch markers was curated with the intent of bringing icy beauty into your hot little hands!
Owl | Quince & Co.
Squishy, lofty, plump, little Owl is made from a blend of American wool and alpaca. It’s spun and dyed in New England and can hold stitch definition and also be soft to wear, making it a wonderful choice for color work. Each box comes with 4 hanks, two main color, and two contrasting shades. You have your choice between two palettes, Neutrals, Pastels, and Pops OR Jewels Bolds, & Deeps
Strokker Cowl | Vickie Howell
The design for this cowl was inspired by Vickie’s recent trip to Iceland. She was struck not only by the beauty of the stranded motif yokes on the traditional, and still popular pullovers but also by the fact that handiwork, in general, seemed to be respected and revered. So much so, that imagery of it can be found on their currency!
Strokker, named after a legendary Icelandic geyser, is knit from the bottom up and with central colorwork, and a ribbed neckline meant to be folded over for maximized warmth.
Sherpa Notions Bag | LoveLina
Nothing says cozying up for a long winter’s knit, than a lamb-inspired wool! This bag is made with teddy-soft faux fur, generously sized to hold all of your supplies. Keep this little cutie close at hand and there’ll be no need to leave the fireside to go get your scissors, measuring tape, or other notions — it can hold them all. Furry, not burrrrrr-eee!
Winter Night Candle | Ligia’s Page
When formulating the Nordic Night fragrance oil, Ligia’s Page candlemakers’ imaginations were filled with images of snow-draped pine trees and the icy embrace of Arctic winds. This fragrance captures the essence of a wintry outdoor night, encapsulating the frosty chill with its top notes of eucalyptus and lavender. At its core, you’ll find the aromatic embrace of resinous pine, while it finds its resting place on an herbal, woody foundation of rosemary, cedar, and oakmoss.
Winter Stitch Markers | Firefly Notes
Firefly Notes designed a whimsical enamel stitch marker pack with a wintery flair. Packaged in a classic vellum, illustrated envelope, you’ll get one each of a mitten, ice skate, blue jay, and snowdrop flower. Your Nordic knitting never looked so nICE!
Knitting Cords | Comma Craft Co.
The knitting world’s new favorite find is the discovery of silicone tubing for use as stitch holders. Simply slide the hollow form over the tip of your needle to seamlessly slide your stitches off, then back on, as you need them!
