On December 1, we will be embarking on a special trip with Novita's 2017 Christmas calendar socks. Join us on a 24-day knit-along journey to winter wonderland. The finished socks make playful use of various lace patterns and other textures which are inspired by Christmas as well as by nature during the winter months in the Northern Hemisphere.

From December 1 through 24, a new window in the calendar will be opened every day by 9.00 am.

The socks will be knitted from Novita's classic Novita 7 Veljestä yarn. You will be needing two balls of 7 Veljestä in Off-white (010), as well as two sets of 3½ mm double-pointed needles – or one long circular needle if you prefer to use the Magic Loop technique. Order your supplies from novitaknits.com where you will find sets for the project with double-pointed needles or with 100 cm circular needles. Insert promotion code J2017 at checkout and you will receive two sweet Merry Knitmas labels as a free gift.
