The kit is sold out and if you're interested in being on a waiting list, please email me through the contact page. I always hold back a few kits just in case a kit gets lost in the mail. Anyone who emails me will get a chance to purchase the held back kits once I'm sure all the others have been delivered. I also have more minis available to dye and if there's enough interest, there may be a batch 3.
The Amanda Hope Yarn Advent Kit for 2022 is based on Musee Cluny: The Lady and the Unicorn, a series of six tapestries, and will be mostly tonals. This is yet another set of unicorn tapestries that I love. There have been so many requests to re-dye the 2020 Unicorn Tapestries Advent Kit, which was based on the tapestries hanging at the Cloisters of the Met in NYC, that I declined, but which convinced me that my customers share my fascination with Medieval Art and colors and unicorns!
The kit is 24 minis + one 100 gram full skein (perfect for Ambah O'Brien's Allsorts Cape, which requires 24 minis and one full skein. Helen Stewart (Curious Handmade is also using minis in her entire Knitvent pattern collection this year.). US shipping is just an additional $5!
The kit will will include receive fun extras, some cool knitting notions and goodies. Knitting notions retail value of well over $20. Most kits will be sent UPS.
If you're not in the US or Canada and want to purchase, there will be an ADDITIONAL shipping charge so that it can be shipped UPS Expedited. This will not be automatically added when you place your order because I will charge only the actual excess cost over what you pay when you check out, which of course will vary depending upon where you live. If you check out and then the additional shipping is over your budget, you may cancel your order.
Here's a link to a You Tube Video on the renovation of the Musee Cluny, which will give you a sense of the richness of the colors if you've never visited the museum in Paris. My visit was several years ago and I still have haunting memories of the gorgeous tapestries and other antiquities in the museum. It will be a rich source of inspiration for the mini colors.
