Now that we are a week into January it feels like a suitable time to tell you about the advent calendar I splurged on this year. This year Anastasia from Garden Wool & Dye put together an advent calendar. It was remarkably affordable – under $100. I jumped at the chance to celebrate the season with yarn.
It arrived just after Thanksgiving. It was difficult not to open it all at once. I love how it was packaged. All of the materials were compostable, even the sparkly twine. I love how her dedication to being environmentally sustainable carries over to every detail.
I loved having so many mini skeins to add to my blanket. On Christmas I opened a gorgeous skein of yarn in colors I would normally not pick for myself. It’s funny how sometimes what I would never pick out is exactly what I need.
I’m not sure what the yarn will become. I’m open to any suggestions you have.
I’ll be doing the advent calendar again next year. The price will be going up, but it will still be manageable.
Do you do yarn advent calendars? Are you mini skein obsessed too?
