  • Multiple white paper bins and the text Cocoknits.

New in the shop this week for Christmas in July is Reindeer Droppings! Hmmmm… I can hear you: Reindeer Droppings? Well, yes! I mean, you don’t think those magical, mystical creatures that lead Santa’s sleigh are without their, ahem, bodily functions, do you? But we imagine the bits that they leave behind are magical and mystical as well as, well… colorful and sparkly!

This super fun colorway is splattered and speckled with all the Christmas colors we know and love with some unexpected shades tossed in for whimsy. We’re also bringing it to you on O Henry and Dickens, our wildly popular sparkle bases. The silver shiny bits remind us of tinsel on the tree and they certainly add a festive flair to any project.

Reindeer Droppings is also available to you in our expanded Sock Sets, and with a twist! Choose from Lite or Dark; or maybe don’t choose at all and snag both sets for some variation in your sock knitting.

Because we know you love coordinating colorways, Games Reindeer Play and Nose So Bright are also new in the shop this week! They bring out the reds and greens in Reindeer Droppings and are the perfect companions. Snag them all for great Christmas gift stitching!

The new Kraft Bins from CocoKnits are now stocked in the shop! These brand new bins are made of the same great washable paper we’ve come to know and love from CocoKnits. We’re so excited about them.

Be sure to download our FREE Holiday WIP Tracker if you haven’t done so already!
