PLEASE do NOT add anything else to your cart with the Advent skeins.  Should you by mistake, I'll email you to separate the order and pay additional shipping.  Last year it was just too confusing on inventory tracking to make this work. Thank you for understanding!! 

Round 1 ends April 30th  
Round 2 begins July 1st @ 10 am CT - Ended July 31st.

At this time, there will NOT be a round 3. I will have extras that will be available after all the pre-orders ship. I will send out a newsletter announcing this. If you missed out, please sign up for the newsletter! 

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PREORDERED!!!!

Hello Friends!!! Welcome to the PRE-ORDER of my second annual Advent self striping color way!!!! I am so excited to offer this to all of you this year!!  The idea here is to cast on a pair of socks (or the item of your choosing) on December 1st 2022 and knit/crochet a little bit each day and by Christmas, you'll have a completed pair of socks to wear :). Depending on your gauge and the size item you are making, this may be more than one stripe per day.

Here are all the details:

  • This will be a surprise color way, never been dyed before! This will only be offered for a limited time, but I do reserve the right to repeat this color way in the future should I choose to.
  • Each of the 24 stripes will be it's own unique color, no duplicates (until the stripes repeat of course)
  • You will receive two skeins that are approximately 50 grams each, for a total of 100 grams. 
  • There will also be an option for a full skein that isn't split. 
  • Each skein will start and end at relatively the same spot. Most people knit socks and this is the best way to have the least amount of waste yarn when wanting your stripes to match :) 
  • There will be an option for a 20 gram mini skein to add if you would like. This will also be a different color than any of the stripes, so a total of 25 if you get the mini :)
  • All skeins will be dyed on my Serendipity Base (See below for information), including the mini skeins. NOTE: As of July 1 (Round 2) I have added in a DK option.  Availability of this base was not stable in round 1, but is now so I am adding it as an option :)
  • Let's Hashtag and Knit Along with each other!!! #FreckledWhimsyAdvent2022 --- Please tag your photos!! I would love to see how everyone gets along with their projects. I will also be casting on December 1st to join in on the fun.

I realize not all faiths have an Advent, but whether it does or not, if you love to knit, if you love self striping yarns, if you love to sit back and relax and let your mind wander away from the worries of the world for just a few minutes a day, then this could be for you :) 

The idea behind the Advent yarn is starting on December 1st, you knit one stripe a day, and by Christmas you'll have 24 stripes.  Now, of course, if you want to make socks out of it, you'll likely have to knit more than one stripe a day, and on two socks to have a completed pair before Christmas morn, but I think you get the idea. Just taking a few minutes a day to get away from the hustle and bustle from this time of year can be a mental health saver! 
 
Thank you so much to all of you! I hope you are as excited as I am about my very first Advent 24-stripe skein! 

Shipping will be from Illinois (USA) and will begin in October, starting with any international orders since those will take longer to be received.  Once all international orders are shipped, all US orders will begin to ship.  My hope is to have all skeins shipped by November 1st, so there is plenty of time to have them in hand by December 1st!  My ultimate goal is to get all skeins ordered in the hands before December 1st!!! 

With this said, once I drop the packages off at the post office, what happens is out of my control.  This time of year, there can be shipping delays and I have zero control over that.  However, this is why my ultimate goal is to ship them by November 1st!!!
