Sit and Knit for a Bit – Christmas Countdown. December 14: Snow Crystals

Thanks for joining our 2020 Christmas Ball Advent Calendar. We are so happy that you are here!

We post a video and reveal a new knitted Christmas ball every day until December 24th, 2020.

 

December 14. Snow Crystals

We envision our ancestors, the knitting designers that came before us, looking at the snow and the beautiful formations on the ice, seeing the sparkle and glitter and inspiring themselves to create new knitting patterns.

See the video below and enjoy today’s photo. If you don’t have the advent calendar but would like to join in all the fun, click here or click on the image below.

A chance to win an exclusive prize!

Take photos of the Christmas balls that you knit from our 2020 Advent Calendar, post them on Instagram and hashtag them with #arnecarlos and #sitandknitforabit. By doing that, you will be eligible to win a fabulous prize consisting of an exclusive ARNE & CARLOS project bag, one of our books personally dedicated and signed by us as well as a bunch of Prym Ergonomic Needles and hooks! We will select 2 lucky winners and announce them in early January. Good Luck!

 

Contest Information:

1. Tag your images on Instagram with #sitandknitforabit and #arnecarlos, and we will select two winners. Both tags must be used per image to enter the competition.

2. Only images of the Christmas Balls from the 2020 Advent Calendar will be considered. Images of other Christmas Ball designs, including balls from our book “55 Christmas Balls to Knit”, the mini-balls from our webshop or self-designed balls will not be considered.

3. As long as you are knitting the balls from the 2020 Advent Calendar, you may use any other colours than the ones we have used. Just be as creative as you like in your colour choices!

    I just have to say that I love your outlook on the Christmas Holiday Arne and Carlos. In the US it isn’t really like this. In most cases people do have traditions that are done every year such as what they drink and eat every year, a party for good friends… Once this is done every year it becomes tradition. I have a new granddaughter, Aurora, and she has brought back for me a fondness and excitemnet for the Holidays! I am knitting the Christmas balls for her and my good friendsI love hearing about your traditions from the past and present! Thank you for sharing them. Funny thing is I sit in front of my computer watching all the Sit and Knit for a Bit videos and when you wave and say good bye, I do the same. I wave to you both on the screen and say goodbye!!!!! See you tomorrow!!! Margaret xoxo
