    It’s July, and that means it’s time for…advent calendars!

    We know the winter feels a million miles away, but it never hurts to plan ahead. Pre-orders are now open for advent calendars, and we have some great ones coming! Here’s what’s available from the Darn Yarn family:  

    Forbidden Fibre Co: Random Acts of Kindness Yarn Advent Box

    This year’s advent box from Forbidden Fibre celebrates kindness and contains:

    • 18 individually wrapped 60-yard mini skeins of exclusively hand-dyed yarn on their Fortitude base (fingering weight, 100% superwash merino).
    • 7 individually wrapped surprise packages containing other goodies (last year’s included scissors, stitch markers, and tea)
    • 2-3 MKAL (knit) or MCAL (crochet) patterns by Afifa Knits and Katie Clark. This year’s theme is accessories.  

    Kelly tried Forbidden Fibre’s calendar last year, and she loved the variety as well as the pattern. In her words, “10/10, would do it again!”


    Forbidden Fibre Co: 12 Days of Harry Potter Mystery Box – Year Three

    This 12-day mystery package is Forbidden Fibre’s biggest Harry Potter box yet! Based on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the box includes:

    12 individually wrapped mini skeins in exclusive Harry Potter-themed colourways on their Fortitude base (fingering weight, 100% superwash merino).

    A knit pattern by Leann Ross OR a crochet pattern by Karen Whooley, OR both (but just one set of yarn)

    Lots more specially selected Harry Potter-themed goodies

    As confirmed Harry Potter nerds, we’re very excited about this one! It sounds excellent!


    Nerds with Needles Advent Calendar

    Nerds with Needles are offering an advent calendar with a twist: you can select your desired weight and base for your yarns as well as a knit or crochet option. If you prefer a worsted yarn or a merino/nylon blend, this is the calendar you’ll want.

    The yarns are available in:

    • 100% bamboo fingering
    • 100% cotton fingering OR worsted
    • 100% superwash merino fingering OR worsted
    • 80/20 merino/nylon blend fingering

    Anyone who’s been with us for a while knows how much we love all things nerdy. This box is going to be a whole lot of nerdy fun—and we can’t wait to see what’s inside!


    Trailhead Yarns Advent Calendar

    Trailhead Yarns’s advent calendar contains:

    • 25 mini skeins (65 yds each) of their Appalachian Trail yarn (a cotton/nylon fingering blend) in a fade
    • A Ravelry code for a lace stole.

    Trailhead’s box is available in two colour themes: Naughty and Nice. Naughty’s usually darker and Nice is usually brighter, but if you can’t make up your mind, you could always order both—just saying!

    Nothing brightens a dreary December morning like opening a surprise package just for you. If you want to spend your month opening gorgeous new skeins of yarn and creating something lovely (or…you know… planning something lovely while you finish panic-knitting gifts—no judgment, we’ve all been there), these makers have got you covered!

    Pre-orders will close in the late fall, so if you know you want one, grab it today! You can find all the advent calendar listings here.
