Well, it took me a while to get this ready...but it's here!
Joyeux Noel Sock Set is a new twist on our Christmas sock sets. Because this one includes a handmade project bag! This is my first time to offer a project bag as part of a pre-order and I'm really excited about it!
Pre-orders open tomorrow, Tuesday, September 15. I'll send a newsletter when they open, so make sure you're signed up. (I mistakenly wrote Wednesday in my first email...but it is actually Tuesday:)
If you got one of our Advent boxes last year, you may recognize this color...it was one of the minis. I knew as soon as I dyed it, that I would be making it a colorway for this year. I loved it immediately!
I had a batch of skeins laying on my studio counter and I happened to have a yard of fabric next to them. (I have been sewing a lot.) It was serendipity, because they looked fabulous together! A little seed was planted and I started thinking about making a project bag to coordinate with the yarn.
After a few prototypes, I came up with my favorite bag:
I tend to prefer zip bags these days, and I like them kinda short-ish. As far as I'm concerned, this bag is the perfect height at just under 7 inches. It's pink and red...so, yum! I've lined it with a great snowflake print and used a snowflake zipper pull. And of course, the little ornament patch just finishes it off!
So, there are a couple of options for this set. Each complete Sock Set comes with: One full skein of Joyeux Noel - you'll choose which yarn base from a menuOne handmade by me Project BagOne mini skein - you'll have a choice of 2 color options
Plus several goodies, which will include: An ornamentSomething delicious to eat...and a couple of other surprises (I don't want to give it all away!)
I've also made options to
-order the box without the project bag - you get all the goodies and the yarn, just no bag -or just the yarn only, no extras. If you're not interested in all the goodies, this option is for you:)
Orders will begin shipping in November and will go out no later than November 15, 2020.

I'm Robin, the dyer and designer behind October House. You've found my blog, where I ramble on about yarn and knitting, stitching and sewing and anything else that catches my fancy!
I love quiet colors, gentle stitches and making things by hand.
