I am so excited to bring you my 2021 Yarn Advent Calendar!
This year, I'll be creating colorways with a Jane Austen theme, basing each colorway on a character from Austen's inimitable novels. Naturally, the heroes and heroines will be paired together. :-)
I don't want to give away too much about the colorways because the surprise is part of the fun, but I will tell you that they will be colors you can wear all year long and that there will--of course--be speckles. ;-)
Your kit will include 24 individually wrapped 20 gram sock-weight mini skeins dyed on Splendid Sock. Splendid Sock is made of 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon, so it's soft enough for anything and strong enough too. The minis each contain 92 yards, so the whole kit includes 2208 yards.
Each box will be numbered, and the idea is to open one box every day starting on December 1st and ending on Christmas Eve. I'll also be including a small gift for Christmas Day.
Your kit will also include a knitting pattern by Crystal Tea Knits called Candy Cane Lane Advent Shawl. It's a beautiful triangular shawl, and the pattern is laid out day by day for each day of your Advent kit. The pattern has lots of stitch variation to keep things interesting but nothing too difficult for an advanced beginner. You will receive a paper copy of the pattern and a code to download it from Ravelry and store it in your library there.
Tara, the designer at Crystal Tea Knits, is also generously including a 20% off coupon for additional patterns from her.
Of course if you prefer to crochet or weave with your kit, you certainly can. There are lots of wonderful crochet patterns for Advent kits, and this kit would be enough to weave a wonderful shawl.
I will only be shipping this to Canada and within The United States this year. My apologies to the rest of the world!
If you live inside The United States, I will be shipping your Yarn Advent Calendar on or before November 20th, and the last date to order will be November 1st.
If you live in Canada, I will be shipping your Yarn Advent Calendar on or before October 20th, and the last date to order will be October 1st. If you live in Canada and order after October 1st, I will happily dye the yarn for you, but your kit may not arrive by December 1st.
I would be grateful if you would order your Advent Calendar by itself. The box is quite full with just the kit, so please order other items separately.
Ordinarily, I am happy to cake your yarn for you. Unfortunately, I won't be able to do it for the Yarn Advent Calendar kits due to time constraints.
