Good morning lovely knitters!  It is looking like a gorgeous fall day for yarning today!  And I've got something SUPER exciting to show you!

This year - we have ADVENT kits!!  On sale NOW for pre-order!  (We'll start shipping 11/1 or making ready for pickup if you can come in.)

Ok - now you know!  Here is all the blather about it!  I am a total sucker for Advent Calendars - we didn't really have them when I was young, so now (as my daughter will attest to) I'm always a little EXTRA when it comes to my Advent Calendar excitement - waiting every morning of December for my daughter to wake up so we can open them!  I'm pretty sure I've ambushed her on the way to the bathroom several times.  "Oh!  You're up?!?  Let's go!!"  

So, naturally, I've been wanting to do one of these calendars for you guys for many years, but I usually remember right around Thanksgiving.  Which is a BIT to late to put everything together.  But hallelujah - this year, my brain reminded me nice and early - so here we are!


These adorable tiny boxes each contain about 20 yards of a different yarn and a little treat.  Included in your big box is a pattern that marries them all together into a gorgeous project.  Well, actually, two patterns because in typical fashion, I couldn't stop myself!  So, there is a pattern for a beautiful scarf and a pattern for a gorgeous cowl, included in the box.  You'll need a Size 9 16" Circular for the cowl or a Size 9 32" Circular for the scarf.  The first 20 orders will receive a 16" size 9 needle for FREE!  I tried to do a coming soon listing, but my system just didn't get it, which means some clever fast people were able to order early, so I'm just going to extend that and say the first 30!

AND, least you think there isn't something else fun - if you aren't in to Advent - we also made this awesome kit into fun Hanukkah Gifts!  8 boxes each filled with 3 of the yarns AND the 2 patterns also!!!

So yeah, I'm a little excited!  Make sure you preorder sooner rather than later because these are quite time consuming to make and we'll have to cut it off at some point (even though we're trying to get ahead).

Ok - I'll try to calmo downo now!  Lol - unlikely, but I'll try!

Tomorrow we draw the winner of our GBYC Basket!  Stay tuned to see if you are the lucky winner!

And we also had gorgeous new Mad Balls in this week!  Check them out!
