Brand new for this year, a different Advent treat for December.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 27th November 2022. Traditionally Advent is represented by 5 Candles.There are lots of different interpretations of which colour candles should be used but this is the order my parents lit them when I was younger. The first Sunday a Green candle symbolising Faith, The 2nd Sunday a blue candle symbolising Hope, The 3rd Sunday a gold candle symbolising love, the 4th Sunday a white candle symbolising peace and lastly on the 5th Sunday Christmas day ,a purple candle symbolising repentance.
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 yarn will also be suitable for other projects if you don't like knitting socks.
The yarn and pattern will be wrapped and labelled for you to open on each Sunday in advent and will also include a little gift.
The yarn is hand painted using environmentally friendly dyes , and is sourced from either the UK or South America.
The dye Process: I use non-toxic acid dyes which has very little waste as all of the dyes are exhausted into yarns before any water is poured away. I use food grade citric acid as setting agent, and rinse with water, to maintain a low impact on the environment. I take care to provide colourfastness, but some bleeding may occur in the first wash.
The advents will be mailed at the beg of November or sooner to allow time to arrive in time for the first Sunday of Advent.
Because of shows in the Autumn I will be limiting the number Available.
