Hello, Yarnies <3
Blurgggg, Christmas cannot come soon enough! At Yarnish HQ we are so excited for it to be December. Why? Because our Christmas-CAL will begin! The halls have been decked and we are certainly jolly! Hurry up December, we just can't wait!
I mean, look at these 'halls', *ahem* digital 'halls' decked with holly!
Christmas is taking over Yarnish and it 👏 is 👏 magical 👏 (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
We have a Sheepie Christmassy Logo annnnnd....
Our Yarnish Community Banner is all about the CAL!
It's only 29 sleeps until Christmas morning! We can hardly wait! What are you asking Santa for this year? Me? I want EVERYTHING from tonight's WITB live-stream! I'm not joking! I'm totally feeling all sorts of feels for that little Mauritian native <3
Ok, enough chitty chat from me! Let's jump in and see what surprises Nicole had waiting for us:
We’re dreaming of a white Christmas <3
Less than 4 weeks until the Yarnish fam jets off to Europe (much to Nicole's disbelief!) If you missed last week's update, Mrs Yarnish, Shelby and the Yarnish fam are heading off to Europe for Christmas.
Shelby said that they did a lot of work today. And by work, they mean planning our ‘business trip’, obliviously! Hopefully, Nicole can navigate European roads in the winter...
This is the plan: Nicole and Shelby are flying to Sweden where they will go to Amsterdam. They will then drive to see Scheepjes HQ, and then drive into Germany to see Garn Manufaktur, then drive to Frankfurt, and then fly to Bulgaria to visit Stenli and then head to Turkey to see Papatya.
Hands up if you're wanting to be smuggled into their checked-in luggage!
Emma will be holding down the fort while these krazy kitty kats are away!

It is recommended to use multiple skeins at once so that you blend the two together.
They run from a whole spectrum from dark to light, and also incorporate beautiful green tones. We are still waiting on more to arrive.
Colourblock Cowl by Shelby Bryon - coming soon!
When chatting about her new design, Shelby says:
"Since we are braving the cold winters of the north next month, I figured I would need some new woolies! I was also desperate to use some of the Caron X Pantone yarn - which is soooo soft I cannot get over it! - I just wanted something simple that was fun to make and showed off the colours, without eating too much yarn. It just came together perfectly, most of my testers are almost finished so that pattern should be ready by the weekend.
If you want to prepare now - it takes 2 x skeins of the Caron X Pantone yarn OR you could use a few different colours of Chunky Monkey. I’m making one for mum in ‘Swedish’ colours. Alternatively, you could go with any of the Papatya yarns - increasing the starting chain is included in the pattern to help you out."
Shelby used the Caron x Pantone Yarn which you can purchase here.
This yarn is so so soft! With its added Nylon and Merino, you'll feel so lovely and warm.
Shelby is making her mum a version in Chunky Monkey, It's super lovely! Its kinda funny: Nicole and Shelby picked out the perfect 'Nicole colourway' only to then realie they picked out the EXACT colours in as the Peacock Blue!
Shelby says that her pattern will have instructions on how to make the scarf longer and wider to cater for other yarns.
The pattern will be available for FREE on the blog, but it will also be available as a PDF download for $2 - and this includes a fancy chart!
And a little sneak peek of Yarnish Makes Coming Soon from Katt Wade. I'm just going to leave this here....
Not available yet, they are literally fresh from the post :)
Stay tuned for Mr Bearnard goodness, coming soon.
And that's it for tonight!
Happy Yarning <3
