A smaller advent calendar....

This is a smaller-sized advent calendar. There are 12 mini-skeins in each calendar, and they'll be individually wrapped and labelled. The packaging will recycled and recyclable, and as minimal as I can make it while still keeping the yarn a secret and the unwrapping fun.

There will be little crafty extras scattered throughout the calendar, and a special Christmas Day surprise - plus, new for this year, some patterns included!


4-ply wool - this is a springy, bouncy, sturdy wool with a bit of crunch and character. There's 80m in each 20g skein.

DK wool - like the 4ply, but bigger! 40m in each 20g skein.

Super-swish mix - a mix of all the most exciting and luxurious yarn bases, with blends including kid mohair, baby camel, silk, alpaca, yak & cashmere.  Most of these are 4-ply weight (80m per 20g skein), but there'll be a bit of lace-weight mohair-silk in there too. This is a wool-free mix, in case you need to avoid the sheepy stuff.

Nothing but fluff - Utter fluff! 20g/ 160m skeins of kid-mohair & silk laceweight yarn.

All of the bases are completely plastic-free - no nylon and no superwash treatment.


Neutral gradient - the calendar skeins will be in soft, desaturated tones, fading from nearly white to deepest dark as the calendar goes on.

Gentle rainbow - the calendar skeins will be a slowly-evolving rainbow of muted shades.

The yarn shown isn't the yarn that will be in the calendar - that would ruin the surprise! 


Now with patterns! Each calendar includes;

The Catvent Shawl, which is a lovely simple knit - perfect for relaxing or comfort-knitting. It uses 12 mini-skeins.

The Scrapvent Cats pattern collection - featuring a catty hat, cowl, mitts, socks - lots of quick knits designed with scraps in mind, to help you get the maximum of wearable wooly goodness from your advent calendar AND from your scrap pile. Less waste, more woolly warmth!


You can add in just the pin & project bag combo or go for the whole adventstravaganza, and get the stitchmarker calendar as well. This year's theme is Oh Catmas Tree! (and shrub and bush, and little pretty flowers) - so expect verdant greens and leaves and twigs and all sorts of botanical excitement.
