The 25th day of advent calendaring

I’ve been putting this off because I didn’t want to admit that my advent calendar is finished. It was so lovely having a little packet of happiness to open, and new yarn to squish, every single day.

But all good things must come to an end so here’s my last 5 lots of advent yarn.

I’m so happy with all the beautiful colours, and now I have the fun of finding a pattern to use them in and playing with the order of the skeins. That should keep me occupied for a while I think.

The 15th day of advent calendaring

Well those five days went past in a flash.

Here is the interesting bunch of colours that came out of my advent packets this time.

The purple and yellow one really stands out to me, as there’s no other skein (so far) with such opposite colours put together. Whatever I end up making with these lovelies I suspect it won’t include that wee odd one out!

The 5th day of advent calendaring

As promised, here are the first five mini skeins from my yarn advent calendar:

They’re so gorgeous!

I’m still not sure what I’m going to make with them yet. If the colours continue like this I might go for some blue/green socks with pink/purple contrast cuffs and toes, or if the right skeins come out I could make some sort of fade scarf. We shall see.

I’m still loving the little surprise each day!

Happy mail

I’m so exciteeed! As an early Christmas present, the FiancĂ© has bought me my very first yarn advent calendar from Bluebell Yarns!

Each teeny parcel contains a 10g skein of Falkland Corriedale 4ply, and I went for the non-Christmas colourway option so the colours will be a total surprise for me as I open them. I have some ideas for what to make using my new mini skeins, but I’m waiting to see what they all look like together before making a definite decision.

I just can’t wait to start opening them! Is it December yet??
