About the Yarn:
Art Equals Happy 'Recycled Yarn' is made by combining multiple strands of thin yarn from old knitting machine cones to create yarn that is suitable for hand knitting. We make different weights and colour combinations based on the cones that we have. Kim has been creating these blends for over 10 years, and they keep getting better and better. If you love the marled effect of multiple colours held together while you knit- this yarn is perfect for you. Kim does all the hard work, thinking about what yarns to combine and what colours will work together nicely- all you have to do is knit or crochet!
Colour Inspiration: The Advent Calendar for 2023 colours are inspired by three characters from Kim and Karl's D&D game (which we stream online- find us as Hodgepodge Heroes on YT, Twitch and IG). The last slide shows you the character art for these three mysterious characters, and if you're interested, I made a video of me working on the 2022 advents (Start at 6:18 if you just want the yarnie visuals) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTx3XsSnuQU&t=313s
About Advent Calendars:
The idea is that everyday in the month of December, you open up one mini, in the lead up to Christmas. You absolutely don't have to celebrate Christmas or be religious at all to celebrate. It's just like getting a tiny surprise/gift every day for 25 days! Each bag will be numbered so we can all open them 'together' through the month. :)
Note: These colours are not designed into a specific 'fade' or 'gradient' but Kim loves colours that blend into one another, so they totally COULD work if that's your jam.
p.s. We have upped our price from £40 to £50 this year because they took a lot longer to make then we thought!
