The 2019 PLYarn Mini Skein Advent Calendar is here! Pre-order now to receive in mid-November (with plenty of time to start opening December 1st). These are limited edition, so order now to be sure to get one - last year they sold out!


Each day of December until Christmas, you will get to open a surprise mini skein of yarn (with other adorable holiday or fiber related goodies added in here and there)! Each day's gift is individually wrapped - what could be more fun for a knitter or fiber crafter?!

Photos above show last year's 2018 calendar and other examples of my minis. I'm super excited because now you have your choice of 5 base yarns! This year we also have some new add-ons. There is a surprise special project bag for the 2019 Advent Calendar as well as the option to add a coordinating full size skein in your chosen yarn base.

The 2019 collection will be a surprise - a beautiful flow and fade of color consisting of speckles and semi-solids which can be combined as they are unwrapped or used in a modular project or in many other ways (see the photo of the shawl above from last year using all the 2018 skeins).
NOTE: I am including a "DK" option for the base yarn. DK is not recommended if you plan to join an Advent Knit-Along, as most of those patterns are fingering/sock weight. However, the DK option is great for all the gorgeous color-work sweaters that are so popular now.

My advent calendar is inspired by my participation for the past 2 years in the wildly popular ADVENT Knit-Along on Ravelry by Ambah O'Brien. Each year, she creates a pattern for a beautiful shawl or scarf that uses 24-25 Mini Skeins. Each new yarn is opened in the morning and a few rows are knit using the yarn of the day. There is a fun (huge) social group for sharing on Ravelry and it is so much fun! This year she is creating a new one, The ADVENT 2019 KAL, so check it out the information to join HERE. There are also loads of other projects specially designed for Advent and Mini Sets on Ravelry. The DK option is great for all the gorgeous color-work sweaters that are so popular now.
