DK 2021 Advent Skein


  • Image of DK 2021 Advent Skein

I love the tradition of an advent calendar. Even if your faith doesn't include an advent, it is still a lovely practice of marking the days at the year's end, taking a moment to breathe, focus, and be calm in a season that is often overwhelming.

I am thrilled to offer a 24 color self-striping skein for this year's holiday season! The concept is simple. Beginning December 1 you could knit one stripe a day until Christmas Eve without repeating any colors. If you would like to finish a project, like socks, before Christmas you may choose to knit more at a time...but you get the idea.

Here's what I'm doing to ensure that your advent is truly a surprise each day. You will receive two identical 50 gram skeins, already caked up and hidden in a canvas bag. The two strings from the center pull balls will be peeking just outside the top of the bag so that you can cast on without ever looking inside!

What would you make with your advent skein?? There are so many possibilities!

• Socks, you could do two at a time if you choose.

• An amazing hat

• A cowl, one that is knit as a smaller circumference tube with grafted ends
would especially work well.

• Mittens

• You could knit ornaments!

I'll be sure to add a few of my favorite pattern picks with your advent. I'll also be including a few additional treats to savor in your package!
