The theme for Locket's Advent Calendar 2022 will be the British Landscape and I am so excited to start dyeing this one!
My plan is to gather beautiful photographs of our incredible countryside and then dye the mini skeins to match - so this year's yarns will have more variegated tones compared to the flowers for 2021.
I'm thinking of spring woodlands, coastal walks, sunsets over the moors, dry stone walls, mountains, hay meadows, harvest scenes, lakes and hills.....
There are so many varied colours to be in the natural world around us and I am confident I can provide you with a beautiful spectrum of shades.
I will do my usual daily posts on social media throughout Advent with information and folklore about and aspect of the inspiration photo and Aly Hall will be making a beautiful, themed ceramic decoration for your Christmas tree!
Your Locket Advent Calendar will cost £84 plus postage and will be payable in three equal instalments of £28 with the 2nd payment being due in April and the final due in July along with the relevant postage for your country.
Each Advent Calendar will contain the following in 24 numbered paper bags:
24 x 10g mini skeins of hand dyed, machine washable 75/25 Merino/Nylon 4ply with a label describing the image it has been dyed to represent
Daily treats to include Rington's tea, themed stitch markers and other goodies
A terrible daily joke
And best of all, a beautiful, hand crafted ceramic hanging decoration made by my wonderful friend Aly Hall
All contained in a re-usable card box
Treat yourself to a little daily gift and some “me time” in the crazy run up to Christmas (why do they make it earlier and earlier each year???)
