It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The first day of July can only mean one thing here at Forbidden Fiber Co – our Advent calendars go up for preorder! We work at these year-round to make sure it is the most fun box you open all year long.
Our 2021 Advent theme is Random Acts of Kindness. We feel that there can never be enough kindness in the world, and we want to do our part to spread it throughout our community. So accompanying each colorway (and each extra), will be a simple act of kindness that you can do for a friend, or even a stranger!
That said, we like to do our Advents a little differently. Instead of an Advent box with 24 (or 25) mini skeins of yarn, we like to shake it up a bit! First and foremost, we work with a knit and crochet designer to bring you an exclusive MKAL/MCAL pattern to go along with your yarn. It’s a little bit different each year, but this year is truly outstanding! We’re focusing on several smaller projects instead of one big wrap or shawl. The knitting patterns are designed by Afifa Knits, and the crochet patterns are designed by Katie Clark Crochet.
Our Advent Calendar this year features 25 wrapped gifts – 18 of them will contain a 25g skein of our Fortitude DK yarn (Superwash Merino), as well as a piece of this year’s MKAL/MCAL pattern. The other seven (7) packages are what we call “rest days,” where you have a chance to catch up on your project if you’ve fallen behind. December is a busy month and we want to make sure there’s no stress involved in this Mystery-along! Each “rest day” package will have a fun little extra for you to enjoy along with your stitching – some are knit/crochet related, and some are just fun! Most of them are handmade by our team at the FFC studio, and all of them are bigger and better than ever this year!
I truly think that this will be our best Advent Calendar yet. So preorder yours and join in the fun!
