Vickie Howell, one of my dear fiber friends, is back on the Yarn Thing Podcast with me today. We have EXCITING news to share with you about her yarn subscription box, Yarn Yay! Yarn Yay! aims to introduce subscribers to gorgeous yarns and on-trend projects.
YarnYAY! is more than a subscription box company, though. It’s an experience based in large part on community. Subscribers will always have a place to get help, stitch-along, and to share projects with fellow yarn-lovers. Learn more about Vickie, the subscription box and why February is an AMAZING starting box.

Yarn Subscription Box || Yarn Yay
If you haven’t watched the episode yet you might be wondering why I am so excited about the February box from Yarn Yay! Yes, I am excited that my friend Vickie is doing a smashing job with this box and always showing her subscribers new yarns and wonderful patterns but there is more!
February features not one but TWO balls of Chic Sheep by Marly Bird™! I am honored that Vickie has selected my yarn to be part of her subscription box. Chic Sheep is a gorgeous 100% Merino Wool yarn in 24 vibrant, machine washable shades. Not only is it a stunning natural fiber but is priced affordably so that most everyone can enjoy it.
Inside the subscription box you will also get a knit pattern and a crochet pattern. Each monthly box has two patterns that are similar, one in knit and one in crochet. Typically Vickie designs both patterns but this month she asked me to be a guest designer! Talk about double honored!
Grab your first box of Yarn Yay! and fall in love with a great selection of new yarns and patterns you didn’t know about before.
