"What's to-day?" cried Scrooge, calling downward to a boy in Sunday clothes, who perhaps had loitered in to look about him.

"Eh?" returned the boy, with all his might of wonder.

"What's to-day, my fine fellow?" said Scrooge.

"To-day?" replied the boy.  "Why, Christmas Day."
          ---"A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens

Why, Christmas Day is a set of five 20 gram mini skeins perfect for a Christmas cowl or hat or some gorgeous little Christmas stockings for your favorite little feet.

The yarn I'm using for these is a soft and plump 2-ply sock-weight yarn made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. Each 20 gram mini skein has 80 yards, so all five together are 400 yards or the equivalent of a standard sock-weight skein.

Here are the colorways from left to right:

  • Cherries Jubilee (red)
  • White with red stripes and speckles
  • White red and green stripes and red speckles
  • White with green stripes and red speckles
  • Forest Green
These come packaged in an organza bag, which makes them lovely for gifts or easy to keep together until you're ready to use them.
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order.  Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
