2023 is coming soon!

 

Are the December advent countdown kits a little too much (yarn, time, money, ends to sew in)?  Our 6-night countdown to 2023 is perfect for you!

Are you having fun with the December countdown and want to keep opening packages for the rest of the year? Our 6-night countdown to 2023 is perfect for you, too!

+++

These kits include 6 individually wrapped mini skeins of a brand new, not currently in the shop tweedy DK weight yarn.  There is also a pattern for arm warmer/fingerless mitts to knit with your yarn and keep you warm in the new year.  The packages can be opened each day from Dec. 26th to Dec. 31st.

(Of course, there will be a few fun little surprises from me.)

The yarn is 85% Superwash Merino, 15% Donegal Nep and 46yds/20g each.

The actual colors will be a surprise, but you can choose either the "champagne" or 'fireworks" color palette.  Champagne will be neutral and fireworks will be bright (but not neon).

There will be an online group (location to be determined) where we can chat and knit together as we count down to 2023.

Kits will ship the week beginning November 7th.  Please order these kits on their own; anything else in the order will ship in that box in November.

Twist
