I have completely unboxed my 2020 Advent calendar from A Girl and Her Wool. I ended up with the quite the collection of minis!
I have hemmed and hawed over what to do with these. I did some pattern searching and pulled down some possibilities. I had been leaning toward a cowl of some sort because the minis are all 10 grams I need something small-ish so that I can see good sized blocks of the different colors.
But then I threw that all out the window and I decided to make my own “advent” socks. I am going to use the full skein to make the heels toes and cuffs. And for each mini I will split in half and knit concurrent socks on two different needles. I think I won’t attempt any color management and will just use them in the order the dyer presented them.
And to keep myself motivated I am going to make myself finish my Carbon Sprinkles Vanilla Socks before letting myself cast on this new project.
Sometimes the best projects are the ones we just flow with. I’m certain every sock will be beautiful!
Your plan sound fabulous!
What a fun idea. The first pattern that came to my mind was the Land of Sweets cowl. That uses minis so beautifully.
Fab gift and fab knitting idea. That way you’ll get to enjoy the yarn every year for years to come!
I am SOOOO glad you shared this. I recently discovered A Girl And Her Wool. I love that Advent Kit. Now I know what I’m buying myself for Christmas 2021!!!
