An advent calendar with mini yarn

Win an Advent Calendar

Win an Advent Calendar! Yes, I know, its a bit early to be thinking of Christmas, but you can win one of 3 Opal advent calendar which will be posted to you for the beginning of December. Each advent calendar contains 24 15g balls of colourful Opal sock yarn, each behind its own “window” to be opened each day as the countdown to Christmas begins.We will include patterns for mini socks and mini mittens so you can knit your own sock/mitten each day and decorate the tree with home made bunting! I don’t know about you, but at that time of year, I really need the calm of some knitting or crochet, but don’t seem to have the time to pick up my WIP, so these little mini balls of yarn are the perfect solution! Perhaps you will make a pair of very long Christmas stockings to put out for Santa’s visit.

So, how do you enter to have a chance to win? This competition is running through the blog and newsletter readers, Gorgeous Yarns FaceBook page, Pinterest and Instagram. All you have to do is share the competition by sharing or pinning, and leave a comment about which Gorgeous Yarns product you like the most. Perhaps you are already a customer and have loved your purchase, you could comment about that, or you have seen something you would like….(Christmas is coming!) The more shares you do, the more chances you have to win! The competition is open now!

In the weeks running up to Christmas, keep watching this blog and Newsletter because we will be having short special offer events on some of our most popular products and kits, and free gift wrapping for the whole of December. We will soon be adding our  Petit 4 kits to the website. These mini kits have been so popular at the shows we have been to this year. They contain 4 25g balls of colour matched yarns from across our range, (including Perran Yarns Merino and Tussah silk DK,) 4 patterns of things to make with the yarn and a sample sachet of Soak liquid wash in a gift box, tied with ribbon. These are £15, and are an ideal way to try our yarns and understand why we call ourselves Gorgeous Yarns! They make a perfect gift too.

Bye for now, Caroline

  1. I couldn’t honestly pick a favourite thing from your shop, I’d vote for Perran Yarns and Eden Cottage but my MILaw is voting for Frangipani.

  2. I love the look of the Eco-Cotton DK. I can’t wear wool so it’s fab to see such lush colours in a wool-free yarn

  3. Love your Yarns – I’m very new to knitting and love colour changing yarns like your watercolour ones – summer garden has taken my eye

    I’ve liked and shared the competition on facebook

  4. Great blog. Thank you for the opportunity. (I’m one of those mousy people who never comment on blogs but I’m trying to comment more.)

  5. Will you be sharing pattern ideas for the yarn anyway? I’ve already got one and I’m a little stumped for ideas before I’ve even opened my first door 🙂

    1. Hi Pauline, I will be sending pattern ideas with the calendars, and also posting ideas for the rest of us on my blog and newsletter. I have ideas for mini mittens and stockings.

  6. Oh my goodness, some things I am better off not knowing about!!! After a difficult week with my 14 yr old in hospital this has just raised my spirits… I didn’t know such things exsisited!!! I’ve been sock knitting in hospital as it’s easy to transport on my visits and I’m nearly ready to start a new pair, I just love Opal wool, Googled it and landed on your beautiful site ♥

    Thank you for the chance xx

  7. I’ve spent some lovely time wandering around your store this morning and have fallen in love with the Petit 4 gift boxes, what a superb gift idea for a friend. Would need to buy two and keep one!!
