YarnYAY! January Box #57 It’s time for the reveal of the YarnYAY! January Box #57, the first of 2023! We kick off the year with Universal Yarns, Fisherman’s Rib, a new Designer in Residence, a wiish kit, and more. Happy New Year!   Wool Pop | Universal Yarns This month we teamed up with friends at Universal Yarns to bring you a lovely blend of bamboo, wool, and a splash of polyimide, in two shades of icy blue. We love how the dye takes differently on the respective fibers, delivering a two-tone effect. Oh, and the drape is dreamy! Universal Yarns is based in North Carolina. Learn more ..read more

Ask Me Monday Series Round-up Since Facebook Live launched in Beta in 2015, I’ve had the pleasure at joining my virtual community live on most Mondays. What started out as a casual Q&A series (hence the name), turned into a more planned-out episodic tutorial, tips, and project-sharing adventure. During the course of the near 8 years I’ve hosted As Me Monday, I’ve had kids graduate from elementary school, middle school, and high school, then off to college and life; I’ve gone from being a spokeperson for a major yarn conglomerate to branching out on my own, writing my 7-13th books, crowd-f ..read more

5 Knit Tree Ornaments Around the holidays I love working on quick, thematic projects, and tiny tree ornaments are a personal fave during wintertime. Here’s a round-up of 5 Knit Tree Ornaments that I love, and links to the patterns so you can knit them, too, this holiday season!   Scrap Bin Tree Ornaments I designed Scrap Bin Tree Ornaments as an eclectic option for mixing and matching scrap yarn, especially those special novelty yarns that you can’t bear to throw away even a few yards of. They’re puffy, unique, and adorable! Probably my favorite of the ornaments I’ve designed. Get the ..read more

Few Hours Crochet Cowl Being busy doesn’t have to mean that you can’t give handmade gifts. It’s possible to knit and crochet, beautiful accessories that work for many on your list, in just one evening. I recently designed an ASAP Gifts Collection, using gorgeously hand-dyed yarns, that includes 5 projects that can be knit in a matter of hours. I’m not one to leave out crocheters, though, so I wanted to make sure to have an option for the hookers among us, too. Enter, the Few Hours Crochet Cowl. I made this one, in the time it took to watch a movie. Made flat using back loop and front loop doub ..read more

Wednesday’s Snood Over the Thanksgiving holiday, my family binge-watched and LOVED Wednesday on Netflix. I was so smitten with it, that I completely pivoted on what this week’s Ask Me Monday project was going to be! Along with the fantastic performances by the cast, especially Jenna Ortega as Wednesday, amazing sets, and direction from the iconic Tim Burton, there is also a bunch of knit and crochet pieces to die for (har, har, har). This week, I offer my interpretation of the snood that the effervescent Enid crocheted for her bestie, Wednesday. Enjoy!     This episode of Ask Me M ..read more
