I'm not sure I'm even getting the newest boxes. I feel like I'm getting old ones that have sat around for a while. Kind of disappointed, was expecting more for the price of these boxes. Cancelling my subscription for this one.

Vickie Howell's YarnYAY! box makes me feel like Christmas comes once a month. I'll be honest---I need more yarn like I need another hole in my head, but getting that turquoise box in the mail brightens up an otherwise dull week. The yarns are beautiful, the patterns quick and fun, and the little extras add to the enjoyment of fiber crafting.

Have loved every Yarn Yay box I have received. Since I both crochet and knit, I love being able to pick which method I choose each month. The boxes have also introduced me to some fabulous goodies such as a nostrapine, hand lotion bar. Sure it is pricier than some but so worth it !

I have now received 6 boxes and I wish I could say that I loved them, but I just can’t. I have not liked one of the patterns. Most of the yarn has been nice, but I never seem to get the color I want. I know YarnYay has no control over that, but it is just disappointing. I have not been impressed with the extras. I want to receive knitting related things, not little craft kits that a 10 year old could do. I do admire the fact that they try to work with small business and women owned businesses. Just don’t think it is worth the money. Also shipping is almost impossible to track and it takes over a week from the time that you are notified that it has shipped to when you finally get the box. I cancelled, it just didn’t live up to expectations.

The yarn in the November 2018 box was just beautiful and I found the note cards charming. Have not worked the embroidery kit yet. However, the pattern was so disappointing. The hat I ended up with was child-sized and did not even cover my ears. Usually an array of sizes are available, but not in this pattern. Also, the 1/1 RCP and 1/1 LCP stitches were difficult to figure out with the instructions provided. I learned the stitches online using a cable needle. Was looking forward to this hat, but now I am taking it apart and stashing the yarn for another project.

My review is after having this product for one month, so I'll continue to be open minded. The product itself is good. I like the yarn and I enjoy the facebook group feature for subscribers. My one complaint is that I signed up for the box at the end of the month- April 26th. By this point, everyone in the facebook group had already received their April box. I didn't know what I was getting (April or May)- it wasn't clear. I received an April box the first week of May. This is fine, but I do think it'd be better if there was a deadline or something. By this point, there was no element of surprise when I received my box and everyone on the facebook group had already finished their project it seemed. If this is the way my shipping continues--I'll be one of the last people to receive the monthly box each month. Had I known, I would've ordered my box at the beginning of the month.

I am an "advanced beginner" in my crocheting skills....so basically I know that basic stitches and can work my way through a pattern (sometimes slowly but I can get to the end).

What I love about this box is that the items are items I am going to use. Mittens, lace scarf,socks (don't be afraid they were so much easier to make than I thought!). Oh and the yarn! The yarns sent are all beautiful high end yarns.

The box also has a private FB Group which has a great group of highly supportive people. If I get stuck on a pattern it does not take long before someone offers their assistance to help keep me moving.

So if you want to work with beautiful high end yarn and want to be challenged just enough to improve your skills base but not so much that you want to quit - this is the box for you!

Just got my box today and the yarn is beautiful and soft. But my main reason for reviewing YarnYay today is to applaud the YarnYay support team for their quick attention to and resolution of a problem I caused with an order. I had incorrectly entered the address for a subscription and didn't realize until the box had shipped. Once I contacted support I heard back almost immediately from Jenny who got the correct address from me. Within a few hours I heard back from her that a new box had been shipped to the correct address and the problem was resolved. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to receive that kind of assistance, speedy and courteous. Especially since I was the one who created the problem. Thank you to Jenny and the rest of the YarnYay support team! Well done!

Love November 2018 box!

Received within a week of order. This is my 1st subscription box and I was very impressed. The yarn was gorgeous. I usually tend to go towards greens and blues (Arch iris), however I received Archangel (autumn harvest colors). The pattern was easy to follow and the beanie worked up fast. I was very pleased with the finished product and was very happy about receiving the color I did. The only problem is that my daughter and granddaughter both want the beanie! Will work on the needlepoint this week. I would highly recommend this box.

Love the boxes, but the slow & untraceable shipping by DHL is a monthly discouragement.
