Winter Sock Set Boxes

  • Mountains in the background with pink text: Winter in MN, A Yarny Countdown.
  • A winter glacier and northern lights with text reading the details of the sock set boxes, including weight of yarn, yardage, and number of sock sets included.

There are still a few sock set boxes available for preorder. These sock sets are inspired by winter activities in MN and the Twin Cities. The sock sets are on my Tough Sock base (75% SW Merino, 25% nylon, 4-ply) and will be a mix of variegated, speckled, and tonal colorways. Each colorway is a new creation just for this box.

These boxes will ship in November so that you can enjoy them during December in whatever way you wish.

Winter in Minnesota – Solstice Countdown Calendars

Snowy mountain backdrop with the text Winter in Minnesota - A Yarny Countdown Calendar in large pink font.

The Winter in MN Countdown Calendar is inspired by those cold months in the state I now call home. There are options for a single skein, weekly sock sets, and the traditional 20 minis plus one full skein. There are also options for both DK and sock weight depending on preference.

The single skein option is a MCN blend and the other options are a 75% SW Merino, 25% Nylon blend.

Countdowns will be shipped in November.

Minis, OOAK, and Sock Sets: the best holiday gifts

  • Skeins of hand-dyed yarn in pale colors.


I’ve been on a bit of an experimentation kick recently and have a lot of one-of-a-kind skeins, mini skeins (in singles or sets), and single skeins of different bases! These would be perfect for stocking stuffers, holiday swaps, or Secret Santa exchanges. Denver and Lookout Mountain were inspired by the landscape on a recent trip to Colorado. Pumpkin Spice and Lavender Milk Tea were inspired by popular drinks in the summer and fall seasons. All the minis have come from pure experimentation with color mixing. The Lake Days Sock Set collection was inspired by those lazy summer days relaxing on the lake and enjoying the scenery.

In an effort to start getting packages out early and hopefully not clogging the USPS too much, my holiday sale will start 11/17 and run through 11/28, discount will automatically apply at checkout. Keep an eye on my Instagram (@knitting_lizard_fibers) to see what else I’m brewing up in the dye pots.
