Edgar Allan Poe's 13 nights till Halloween Yarn Calendar


I just love autumn and Halloween! I enjoy the colours of autumn immensely, the different shades of brown, ochre, red and orange! It might have something to do with the fact that I was born in October :-)! I also love Halloween. Not these gruesome and graphic movies, but just some innocent suspense and creepy things. Sitting next to the wood stove, rain slashing against the windows, the howling in the chimney, a hot cacao, an interesting knit and watching a not too scary movie!

This year’s inspiration is Edgar Allan Poe. His dark, poems and gothic novels inspired many film makers and mystery writer.

What is a 13 nights till Halloween Yarn Calendar?

It's a calendar to countdown the days until Halloween. There will be an individually wrapped package every day, 13 days in a row, containing a beautiful hand dyed (mini-)skein, some sweets or some small gift, all exclusively dyed, designed and made for this calendar until the 31st of October (All Hallows' Eve).

Come on and join in all the fun!

The pictures are of course an indication, the real magic often happens while dyeing. I use these colour schemes for inspiration and this is very subjective and also a matter of taste. My interpretation might be completely different from your ideas or opinions. Buying a 'mystery' kit is always a risk.

Thank you so much for your order and for supporting my shop!
