Sit and Knit for a Bit – Christmas Countdown. December 23. Home for Christmas

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 23. Home for Christmas.

Today’s Christmas Ball is inspired by the unknown fairy tale (based on real-life incidents) about two Scandinavian princes, their 1968 VW Beetle and a Christmas tree.

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!

    Okay, okay, the Beetle story is hilariously entertaining. Thank you so much for your sense of humour and imagination. I will consider it my Christmas gift from you. Actually every daily podcast has been a Christmas gift. I’ve been knitting Christmas balls as a gift to my friend’s tree.

    What a charming story! You guys are super! Didn’t get the correct yarn until two days ago, so will do the robin and maybe the vw beetle. Thank you so much these pre Christmas chats.

    Those poor princes; what an ordeal! You had me on the edge of my seat wondering how it would end! It can be very dangerous to be stranded far from home on a cold winter night (as we know here in Canada). The picture you painted in my mind of the princes waving from the Christmas tree topped beetle was priceless. It would have been tragic to have missed the Downton Abbey Christmas special.
    These podcasts keep getting better and better.
    I can hardly wait for the next episode.
