Merry Christmas Eve to all!! I finally jumped on the advent mini train this holiday season. I couldn’t fit a full 24 day advent into my yarn budget this summer but I did find two indie dyers who were doing “12 Days of Christmas” boxes for a much more affordable option. So I got two 12s to add up to 24.
Here is my first box from Cornbread and Honey. They box was a little worse for the wear by USPS but it was intact and on time.
Inside was a cute little project bag, 12 mystery bags and some delicious extra goodies. I did pick out a project to fit these little bundles. I purchased Annapurna by Aspen Knits because its a cute stole/wrap/scarf that was specifically designed for these minis.
I started opening these up on December 1st through the 12th but in the chaos and spirit of December I forgot to show you the yarn! Between stomach viruses and work drama I didn’t find the joy and the energy to start my advent project. This yarn was so pretty I wanted to knit only good vibes into it so I chose to wait until it felt right. Right now it’s Christmas Eve day and I need to get my butt moving on some cooking and wine drinking!
P.S. I’m still can’t wait to cast on my special Christmas Eve cast on! It’s waiting under the tree for me with my warm snuggly PJs.
