Starting up a good thing: WITB Highlights!

Posted by Reneé Ettia on

Hello Yarnies! <3

Today is a BIG day! No, today is an EPIC day! As today is the day, we start a regular blog post topic! And not just any regular blog post topic... it’s a regular blog post topic about the renowned #WITB!

WITB

First things first...

Have you heard of What’s in the Box or WITB?

Of course, you have! It’s only the single best form of mid-week live entertainment one could ever ask for!

But in case you’re new, like I was 5 weeks ago, you’re probably thinking ‘what the bloody bleep is what’s in the box???’

What’s in the Box (WITB) is a LIVE stream which you can tune into every Tuesday evening at 6.30pm AEST. It is recorded live at Yarnish HQ and you can watch it on our Yarnish Community Facebook Group page.

TVSN, this ain’t!!!

Believe me, this live stream is 100% Aussie handmade gold! Between the random iPad updates, yapping puppers, and hilarious Shelby interjections, Mrs. Nicole Yarnish updates her healthy number of live viewers with all the amah-zing products which have been delivered to the shop over the past week. During this live stream, you will be fully updated on what’s new at Yarnish! You can then go directly to the website to purchase. The direct link to the WITB new products can be found here.

But don’t take my word for it!

We have viewers who have literally rescheduled their children’s lives so that they time to tune in! Swimming lessons? Nope! That can wait till Thursday! Also, dinner at 5pm is a thing! This is so there is time to wash up and send the kiddies off to bed before the live stream (teenagers included!)

But what if I miss it????

If life gets in the way and you are unable to watch Australia’s best shopping/comedy show, then there is no need to fret. You can catch up on the replay which is posted instantly after.

Ok get to the point, what’s the regular blog post then?!

Life might get in the way, even more so than we would like. And if watching a replay during the wee hours of the early morning (the only free time you ever seem to find for yourself) is simply not working, then you can come here!

I will collate all the highlights from the show and buddle them up in a nice, neat blog post for you (links included). I will also include the little quirks which make the live stream, well... typically Yarnish, I promise! So, you won’t feel like you’re missing out!

But if you have seen the live show and you’re used to scrubbing your way through an hour-long stream to find that bit of info you missed about a new line of yarn, then I can help you too! I will act as your very own yarn-focused news anchor!

And if you have seen the live show, have taken notes, know everything there is to know, you’re welcome too. Let’s relive amazing memories together!

So, get ready, here it is! The beginning of *drum roll*....

WITB Title Card

Previously on WITB: Showstoppers and Highlights

Tonight's episode is brought to you by Shelby's colour selction: the warm, moody and rich hues of the Sahara. 

No technical difficulties tonight! The new iPhone method of streaming worked wonders as it beamed out a beautiful, crisp image for all eager yarnie fans! However, yarn had been forgotten for 'show-and-tell'... and we will definitely not place blame on to a particular blondie brunette-haired sheila... 

First things first!
