Our Advent and Eight Nights calendar kits are a fun way to give yourself a yarny surprise on each day of December leading up to Christmas, or for each night of Hanukkah. The mini skeins are perfect for a striped knit or crochet project!  Below you will find detailed explanations of all of the options available to you when choosing your calendar.

Size Options:

Your kit includes 24 mini skeins with either 10g (240g total) or 20g (480g total) of fingering weight yarn in your choice of yarn base. 

---

Wrapping Options:

Individually wrapped Advent calendars: The skeins will be individually packaged and numbered to open on each day in December, like a traditional advent calendar. 

Unwrapped Advent calendars:  If you would like to see all the yarn at once, and arrange the colors yourself, this is the option for you.

Individually wrapped Eight Nights calendars: The skeins will be individually packaged in groups of three and numbered to open on each day of Hanukkah.

Unwrapped Eight Nights calendars: If you would like to see all the yarn at once, and arrange the colors yourself, this is the option for you. (Ostensibly the same as the unwrapped advent calendar, but without any mentions of Christmas.)

---

Color Options:

The Coffee themed Advent Calendar will include rich browns, tans, and cream colors. 
The Wine themed Advent Calendar will include burgundy, red, and champagne colors.
The Dessert themed Advent Calendar will include a wider variety of colors, including a few brighter candy colors. (The colors will still play well together.)
---
Arrangement: 

In the Gradient kit, the skeins will be wrapped in a single direction gradient, to be worked in order.

In the Mixed kit, the skeins will be wrapped in a pleasing order to complement any ADVENT pattern or mini skein project.

note: this option is only available with wrapped kits.

Extras:

Yarn Winding: be ready to knit each day by having us wind your skeins into cakes!  (Yarn cakes can be packaged individually, just as the skeins. Mmmm... cake.)

Project Bag: a hand-sewn, lined, drawstring, 13"x8"x4" project bag in a fabric matching your chosen color theme. Only available to add to your kit until July 31st! (Extras will be for sale in December.)

Full-Size Skein: a full size, sparkly skein of yarn, dyed in a Christmassy colorway, wrapped up to open on Christmas Day (or whenever!).  This skein does not coordinate with the kit themes but is just a fun extra surprise. Only available to add to your kit until July 31st! (Extras will be for sale in December.)

 

The extras are of course not required to fully enjoy the Advent Calendars.  I am offering the full-size skein and project bag at a significant discount ($15 each) as a thank you and Merry Christmas from me!
