A&P Advent 2022

A&P Advent 2022

£155.00£192.00

Last year we had a special request to make up an ‘advent add on’ for the winter club box and having enjoyed the festive wrapping we decided to dip our toes into the cosy world of advent calendars.
We were very excited and just a little bit nervous so we commissioned a painting from Lesley Buckingham (@bettybibfolk on Instagram) for our inspiration and we think she’s captured the cosy winter theme perfectly.

The calendar will be 24 colours with the option a full skein inspired by the picture. They will all be individually wrapped and numbered with packaging similar to the photo in the gallery. More a gift from a friend rather than commercial packaging so you can display them how you like and take a quite moment each day to sit down and unwrap your mini (or rip them all open on day one, we won’t judge!)

You will receive
24 x 20g on your chosen base with the option to add a 100g skein in the same base.
Each skein will be individually wrapped and numbered.
Plus a few extra surprises.

Postage: This is a pre-order. International orders will be posted tracked and or signed for (depending on country) in October. UK orders will be posted in early November. Please don’t order anything else with the advent as they will all be posted together.

£6.00

A copper coloured acorn and Czech glass maple leaf with five copper coloured stitch markers will bring a woodland feel to your knitting.

Concorde Hat Kit

£22.00

The graphic patterning of this hat reminds us of the iconic silhouette of the passenger jet Concorde. Our Dad worked on the electronics so we would all dive outside to see it fly over in the 70s and 80s, like a Spitfire, you couldn’t mistake the sound of it.

The kit comes with enough of our hand dyed 4ply Blue Faced Leicester Masham yarn to make either size hat using either colour as the main.
The yarn is next to the skin soft with a slightly heathered look on the lighter colours and the charted pattern would make a perfect beginners colour work project.

Contains  2 x approx 30g skeins of Blue Faced Masham 4ply, a printed pattern and a packet of bulb pins.
