What to stash this week: the Advent of travel

Judy and Emily of Jems Luxe Fibers take us to Mississippi for their 2022 yarn Advent. Their name, Jems, comes from the the first letters of their first names and MS for their home state. You’ll learn everything you did or didn’t know about Mississippi. For example, did you know that bluesman BB King and Elvis Presley, the King of rock ‘n’ roll, were both born in the state, as was Muppets creator Jim Hensen? And that Coca Cola was first bottled there?

You’ll discover these stories and much more via 25 mini skeins and some extras, including a limited-edition Christmas ornament. You can choose between a knit or crochet box and between Jems’s Luxe Sock, Luxe DK and Classic DK bases.

If you’re looking for a treat to open a little sooner, Maggie of Yarnaceous Fibers and Sarah of Charmedology have collaborated on a Cast On Set to celebrating spring. Each set includes a 100-gram skein of yarn or 120-gram sock set and a special-edition themed dinosaur polymer marker.
