Eight Days of Easter Yarn Kit with Pattern & Easter Basket

  • Eight skeins of pastel-colored yarn.

These Eight Days of Easter Yarn Kits may even be better than chocolate Easter bunnies!

I’ve dyed eight soft and speckled pastel colorways on my luxurious So Silky Sock yarn base, which is made of 50% mulberry silk and 50% Superwash Merino.

You’ll receive eight 10-gram minis. Each mini will come inside an Easter egg, and all eight Easter eggs will be placed in a reusable basket complete with Easter grass and a little extra surprise as well. 😉

Each 10-gram mini is 40 yards, so you’ll receive 320 yards of sock-weight yarn in the colorways shown in the photos.

I have 10 kits available, and I’ll be shipping them by Monday, April 15th, via priority mail so as to arrive in time for Easter.

The kit also comes with a heavy paper copy of my Diamond Twist Cowl pattern–a simple but elegant knitting pattern perfect for spring and summer since it’s an open-work lace pattern. It’s suitable for an advanced beginning knitter or beyond. The last two photos show the cowl pattern knit up in a different colorway.

Of course you can open all the “yarn eggs” at once if you like, but I’ll have them numbered in order of the pattern so you can open one and knit that part of the pattern each day during the octave of Easter and have a lovely cowl to enjoy at the end.

*Squoosh DK (my newest yarn base), which is made of 100% extra-soft superwash merino that’s impossible to stop squeezing.

Twelve Days of Christmas Mini Skein Set

I am really excited to bring you this mini-skein set for the Twelve Days of Christmas! It will make a fabulous gift for the yarn lovers in your life, and it would also be a great way to step away from the busy-ness of the wonderful Christmas season and enjoy a little time to crochet or knit for yourself. Sending hints to your loved ones is definitely allowed. 😉

Each day starting with Christmas Day, you or the person you give it to will get to unwrap a beautiful little box containing a hand-dyed 20 gram mini skein. The boxes will be numbered for each of the twelve days of Christmas. Each 20-gram mini skein is 87 yards long, and I will be dyeing them as a gradient set of twelve minis in a combination of variegated, speckled, and tonal colorways that are made to be used altogether. The minis are made of squishy soft 100% Superwash Merino, and the whole set of minis will come to 1,044 yards and 240 grams. That is enough for a medium-sized shawl, poncho or cropped sweater.

If you would like to make it even more special, you can choose to add a full-sized 100-gram skein made of my So Silky Sock yarn to give for Christmas Day, and then the minis will last through the Feast of Epiphany on January 6th. If you choose the full-sized skein too, then the whole set will come to 1,481 yards of sock-weight yarn and 340 grams, which is enough for a bigger shawl, poncho, and many full-sized sweaters. The So Silky Sock yarn is an amazingly soft yarn made of 50% silk and 50% Superwash Merino.

This set will work with a lot of different patterns, but I’ll include a list of some great knit and crochet patterns that would work well for both sets.

You can order through the end of November, and then I will be dyeing up all the orders and mailing them out by the 10th of December to make sure they arrive in time for Christmas. Because of the short timeline, I’m afraid I will have to limit these sets to others who live in the U.S.

I will not be using traditional Christmas colors for these. Instead I will be dyeing the minis in a gradient that goes from purples to blues to a soft sea-foam green — colors that will look great all the time.
