- Shiny Happy Cotton | Wool and the Gang + PEARL 3 Cotton Bundle | DMC
There's nothing like a soft, wonderful-to-work with cotton for the Summer. This month we're sharing a wee collection of different types: a Lipstick red worsted-weight cotton, then a bundle of 3 (varying) colors of cotton floss. Get ready for some fiber play -- yay!
- Floral Zippy Bags | Designs by Vickie Howell
We are leaning ALL THE WAY into the embroidery on knitwear trend with this month's project, floral bags. The knit bag, Flossie, is worked with plain stockinette stitch with a little garter stitch around the edge. Moxie, the crochet bag, is made with simple, single crochet. Both bags are then embroidered with shiny, happy flowers.
- Bonus Skinny Scarf | Design by Afifa Sayeed
The June Box marks the end of Afifa's Spring/Summer Design in Residency before she's off to become an in-house designer for Universal Yarns. We're so proud of her!
This month, Afifa designed a special extra for our knitters. The Petals scarf requires 2 balls of Shiny Happy Cotton and is knit straight, with lacy petal motifs and an i-cord edging.
- Embroider Knit! Booklet | Vickie Howell & Becky Joiner
When we got the idea to focus on yarn-wear embroidery for this box, Vickie decided she'd write a wee book on the subject: as one does. Luckily, her trusty friend and YarnYAY! Maker of Things, Becky is also an illustrator. Together the two were able to self-publish this booklet in a matter of weeks. Guess what? You're the first to get a copy-- huzzah!
- Leather Compact Card Holder | Latico Leathers
This minimalist, snap case from one of our favorite leather bag companies is not only a treat (retail value is $30!) but also highly useful. Carry cards, earbuds, tapestry needles, stitch markers, or whatever other little somethin' that needs a spot to nestle.
