Oh my goodness, I've had so many people messaging me and contacting me, asking me if I'll be doing another Advent Yarn Calendar this year!
First of all, thank you! It really makes me feel good that so many of you truly enjoyed last year's box. And many of you heard about or saw last year's box and wanted one for yourself...I love that!
There are a few reasons I won't be doing an Advent box this year. BUT...
I will be doing a special Christmas Sock Set, similar to what I've done in past years.
I will do a pre-order for this that will open in August. I'll have more details about what will be in the box at that time, including when it will ship. But I do know there will be a couple of extra goodies and some minis to choose from. And it won't be a mystery...you'll know exactly what you're ordering, at least as far as the yarn colorways go.
While I would love to do another advent box (planning and designing last year's box was a lot of fun!) I just don't have the time to devote to it. The packaging alone took an incredible amount of time that I just don't have to spare this year. Our cross stitch designs are doing so well they are keeping me very busy, (yay!) and our quarterly Sock Club gets more popular with each club and I spend a lot of time making it the very best it can be.
So the next best thing is to go back to the themed sock sets I did for a couple of years before. They are just as much fun to plan and design, but the packing and packaging is much more manageable. Plus, it's a much more affordable option for you for this year.
Be sure you're subscribed to my newsletter, because that's where I always share all the details about what's coming up and that's where you'll be notified when it's time to sign up!

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.
