Theme:  The Art of Edgar Degas

US Shipping $3 - International Shipping $9


Who doesn't love little surprise packages at the holidays?  This listing is for a set of 25 skeins of 20 gram mini skeins (a total of 500 grams, each skein approximately 87/88 yards) in Aussie Extra Fine Sock yarn in colors dyed to play well together, especially for Ambah's ADVENTuring KAL.  The skeins will be individually wrapped and numbered, as a fade, in the color order we suggest you use for Ambah's pattern.  The skeins will include multi colored, tonal, and speckled colorways.  On some days, there will be an extra goody included your wrapped mini skein package (all knitting affiliated).  

The curated knitting notions are all something special and useful.  No sweets. 

New this year as part of your curated knitting notions is a special surprise from maker LIttle Bitty Delights.  You can find her on Etsy here or on Instagram as @littlebittydelights.  

You will have to trust us on the colors, that's part of the thrill.  However, if you want to see the inspiration, view the art included in this listing, or do a little research on Edgar Degas.  He was a French painter famous as one of the founders of Impressionism, and for painting scenes of dance.  Perhaps one of the reasons I am drawn to his art is that his mother was from New Orleans, like me.  I love his use of romantic colors.  

And if you want a sneak peek at what the colors will be like check out my Pinterest board here.  If you're really not into surprises, you can find a customer's picture of the kit on Ambah O'Brien's Ravelry group "Spoiler" thread.  Just search on "Degas."

If you'd like a FULL SKEIN to go with your kit, we recommend Cashmere Pearl in the same base, Aussie Extra Fine Sock with Nylon.  If your kit has already shipped, email me for a free shipping code.  

You can be sure the colors will be in Amanda Hope Yarn's normal style of sophisticated, wearable colors.  No neon's here, nothing jarring, and not holiday colors.  Your colors will be wearable year around.   Most, if not all, will be new colors developed to play well with the palette.  All colors will be labeled and repeatable, so if you love them and must have a full skein, you'll have the information you need.  

Ambah's ADVENT KAL starts in her Ravelry group on December 1, 2019 and your Advent Calendar yarns will ship immediately using Priority Mail.  The colors have been planned especially for her 2019 ADVENTuring shawl design, but will work with any of her Advent patterns.  (We have a copy of her 2019 ADVENTuring design, so we're sure it works).

All of the 25 individual wrapped mini skein packages will be shipped together in a trackable package.  As always, your yarn will ship within the U.S. for just $3.

If you are sending the kit as a gift, please email me and I'll disguise the return address and not include the invoice showing the amount paid.

If you're outside of the US, please email me at if you have any concerns about international shipping from the US.  I will ship your kit for $9 USD through the US Post Office.  Any customs, duties, or other fees that your country charges will be your responsibility, so please be familiar with the fees that might be imposed by your government before you order.  If you would like your package shipped another way, or insured, please email me before you order so I can figure out the additional charge.
