Halloween is my very favorite holiday. Monster movies, ghosts, costumes, friends.... What's not to love? Even when we can't be together, we can watch the same movies. And who doesn't want to watch more scary movies with yarn?
This mystery mini skein set includes 13 mini skeins individually packaged in Blood (red satin), Darkness (black satin) or Placid (blue burlap) bags, your choice. Each skein was inspired by a horror or sci-fi movie featuring water. Underwater monsters, toxic mutants, ancient creatures, haunted lakes or tainted wells - movies could be science fiction, cult classics or horror.
Each mini comes with a quote from the Blood in the Water inspiration.
The pattern to be released with the sets will be a knitted wrap. It will also be a surprise. The printout will show only black and white images so as not to ruin the color surprise and will not be pictured on Ravelry or www.rebelpurl.com until November.
Finally, there will also be a little stitch keeper gift in with your mini set.
These skeins were dyed in water/movie-related shades. Each skein includes a little blue and blood, but not every skein has a blue main color (actually only 7/13 are primarily blue). They can be used to create one item, knit up separately or crocheted individually - however you choose.
Dyed on 4 Plies of the Apocalypse, each mini skein is 20 grams of 4 ply sock yarn or about 87.2 yards. This makes the total weight of the mini set 260 grams and the length about 1133 yards total.

THIS IS THE PRE-ORDER LISTING. Pre-ordering will be available in the shop until August 1st to make sure I've got enough time to dye and package your yarn. It will be shipped out the first week (or a bit earlier if possible) in October so you received it in time for pre-holiday yarning. Pre-order includes 13 mini skeins in small numbered bags, 13 movie quotes, 1 knitting pattern, 1 stitch keeper, and a list of 13 movies to get you ready for Halloween.
There are a limited number of each option, so please grab it while you can!
