Do you remember the anticipation of Christmas as a child?
I loved the lead up to Christmas more than Christmas day itself. I loved seeing the different decorations strewn across lawns, the lights placed haphazardly around pillars and over bushes and while some detest the carols played repeatedly in shopping centres, I loved those catchy jingles.
My childhood home was a little festive. We had a Christmas tree every year and one year, we even had a real tree. The smell of pine needles is now one of those triggers that pulls at those good old heart strings. My mum had collected a few select pieces of Christmas paraphernalia that I eagerly awaited to be put out on display each and every year but they weren't mine. I wasn't allowed to play with them and they were definitely 'look but don't touch' items. My one piece of the Pre-Christmas festivities, the one thing that belonged to me and had me bouncing out of bed counting down the days to Christmas was the Advent Calendar.
Every day that Advent Calendar reminded me Christmas was on it's way. Those few times I was fortunate enough to receive a calendar created so many memories for me. I remember being so excited each and every day, waiting to see what shape that little chocolate was going to be. They were moments full of excitement and anticipation and a reminder that I was one day closer to visiting my grandparents and spending the day not only with presents but with my family. Now that I have grown, moved away and have my own little family I miss that feeling so much more and it for that reason that I have decided to release yarn advent calendars; to help bring back the special into our adult lives.
I know it is waaaaay too early for Christmas. We only just got through last years festivities but I do need time to create the amazing parcels so I have opened up some for pre-order for those who don't want to miss out.
I currently have a 12 days of Christmas calendar availavle for pre-order. A full 24 days advent calendar will also be available for pre-order soon.
I only released the 12 days calendar 2 days ago and I have already had several orders. I don't know how long these will be available so, if this sounds like something you would love to be a part of then I urge you to get in quick.
You choose your yarn base and colourway so make sure you look at all of the options before making your selection. Yarn bases include gold sparkle, silver sparkle or no sparkle and if you can't decide why not opt for the mystery yarn base and be totally surprised. For the ultimate surprise, select both the mystery yarn base and the mystery colourway ensuring each and every day is unique. If mystery isn't your thing there are colourways to choose from giving you a little more input and control over what your calendar will be.
To celebrate the release of these calendars we are hosting an Early Bird Sale. Simply use the discount code EARLYBIRD15 when checking out. But be fast, only the early birds get the yarn.
