YarnYAY! September Box
Oh, joy of joys it’s September which traditionally (at least in the “Before Times”, when time and space mattered) has meant the official kick-off of crafting season! Of course, most of us never stop making, but nevertheless, yaaaaaaaay Fall/Winter seasons!
To celebrate, for the YarnYAY! September box, I’ve worked closely with partners to create a specially curated collection of goodies that support small businesses and altruistic projects and treats YarnYAYers to over $65 worth of gorgeous items for our subscriber price of $35! We could all use a little feel-goodness in our lives right now, and it’s my intention that the YarnYAY! September Box is just that. Here’s what’s inside!
Harvest Worsted | Urth yarns
Harvest is a squishy, extra-fine merino yarn that’s hand-dyed with roots, fruits and nuts. Our selections this month are earthy shades Fig and Black Grape. Subscribers will be surprised with one of these colors at random.
Urth Yarns is a family-owned business, powered by the women dyers in Istanbul and Mersin. The company plants a tree in Africa for each hank purchased.
Hat Patterns | Designs by Chris Bahls & Vickie Howell
This month’s projects are inspired by the straight lines and curvy turns of a racetrack. The Rever Hat, by YarnYAY!’s own Chris Bahls, is knit with mock-cable panels amidst a bed of rib and is finished off with a paper bag-style top.
The Racer Hat, by Vickie, is crocheted flat and through the back loops of stitches to create a knit-looking rib with spike stitch mock cables.
Self-Opening Scissors | Slice
These Self-Opening Scissors are ideal for fiber artists or anyone with arthritis, hand weakness, or dexterity challenges. The innovative Zirconium oxide blades will never rust, and BPA, phthalate. and lead-free.
Slice is a California based business, founded by TJ Scimone. One percent of sales are donated to Autism research.
Fella Q Drawstring Bag | Vickie Howell for Della Q
This racing-striped drawstring bag is a YarnYAY! exclusive, in celebration of the launch of Vickie’s latest collaboration with Della Q, Fella Q: Project Bags for the dapper in all of us. YarnYAYers will get the Navy version paired with the Fig yarn, OR the Olive version paired with the Black Grape.
