Knitting suggestions for the Advents 2022
The idea of the Advents for Hanukkah started, the first december after making Aliyah from Denmark. I as a child, grew up with the traditional advent, you get a small present every day from Dec. 1st till Dec. 24th (including)
So when December came, I ofcourse started by having small presents for my boys, at that time they were 3 years and the other only 6 months old. They ofcourse loved the concept, but when we made it to the 24th. It was with a very empty feeling.... No big family meeting, dinner, presents, holiday, anything!!! It was just a normal day of going to the gan. I can do a lot, but bringing the entire spirit of Christmas around, is a bit too much I must admit.
It drove me crazy, cause how could I make a tradition that would give the boys some of my upbringing too? So after a lot of thinking I decided to just connect my favorite parts of my Danish childhood christmas, to Hannukkah - And the Hannukkah Advent was born. I have done it every year since and the boys still love it today! They are now 10 and 13, plus number three who is 4.
After I started my Yarn business, I had to make a yarn calender aswell. Cause I mean, who doesnt like small presents?! 2021 was the first year and it was so much fun!
Here I have added a few suggestions for possible projects, and I obviosly would love to see what you're all making! You can use the hashtag #adventsbyamalie so I can find you all.
Enjoy! And Happy Holidays!
Shawl, scarfs and such:
I believe any sock pattern could be used, and then stripes can be added.
