Rosies Advent Calendar The Magic Far Away Tree.

Rosies advent calendar is returning for its 9th year but in a different format. This year the advent will be mailed during the year instead of arriving in one parcel to open on 1st December, or of course you can choose to begin opening them on 1st December instead of each month.The advent will be mailed in 4 parcels, beginning in April, followed by June, September and lastly November. By receiving your yarns throughout 2024 your finished items will be ready to wear on Christmas day.This years theme is 'The Magic faraway tree'  I have just finished reading this to my Granddaughter we were both sad when it finished but  i am looking forward to dyeing  the mini skeins for this advent.Each box will contain 3x 20g /85m individually numbered packages containing super wash merino/nylon fingering weight yarn plus as usual some gifts to open .If you purchase all 4 boxes you will have a total of 240g of yarn enough for a shawl, or a project of your choice.  I wont be designing a pattern this year but i am happy to include some patterns from previous years and possibly some from Ravelry if you would like themEach year it has been lovely to see the projects you all knit or crochet with the advent yarn and i hope this year you enjoy it as much as previous years.

The Four Sundays Of Advent A Nordic Christmas Sock Box

The four Sundays of Advent was so popular last year, I have planned another this year.The month of December is a busy time in the run up to Christmas, therefore this will be a gorgeous treat for yourself or a wonderful Christmas/Solstice gift for a creative friend. Advent this year begins on Sunday 1st December.This years theme is a Nordic Christmas. Do you love Christmas as much as they do in the Nordics? That is: Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.This is the homeland of Santa Claus, where there's plenty of glögg ("mulled wine") to go around, and colourful lights twinkle all around you. Even the sky shimmers with the northern lights!This box will contain 4 exclusive Christmas sock patterns and 100g 425m super wash merino/nylon yarn to knit each pair of socks, some of the socks might have a small fairisle design and that pattern will include a mini skein. The box will also include an exclusive project bag To store your project in. The yarn will also be suitable for other projects if you don't like knitting socks.
