The first Ovis et cetera Advent calendar!
This calendar consists of 24 x 25-gram Igneae mini skeins. This is a minimalistic calendar, just mini skeins. But with its 25-gram skeins, it is slightly more hefty than the usual advent calendar, 600 grams of yarn together! More than enough for at least one garment, a substantial blanket. But also perfect for individual little projects.
The idea for this calendar came from the popular Igneae mini skein sets, which are made up of 6 skeins. And 4x6=24 You could say the calendar is 4 Igneae mini skein sets in a row.
I associated the seasons with the number 4, so every 6 days we travel through a season, and like in nature, the seasons flow into each other, to form one cohesive colour story. Not as a fade, but as a colour family, to be able to mix and match to your heart's content.
Your mini skeins will be individually wrapped in numbered paper bags which I encourage you to use again.
