Halloween is my very favorite holiday. Monster movies, ghosts, costumes, friends.... What's not to love? And who doesn't want to watch more scary movies and yarn to celebrate?
This mystery mini skein set includes 13 mini skeins individually packaged in Darkness (black) or Blood (red) satin bags (your choice). Each skein was inspired by a horror movie starring a woman in a leading role. She could be good, bad or questionable. She might be alone or part of a group. She might be human..... maybe. Movies range from classic suspense to 80s cheese to jumps and gore.
Each mini comes with a quote from the Women in Horror inspiration. Watch the movie while you work with your yarn that evening! I know I will be.
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 a rainbow splashed with blood and darkness. 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.
Movie inspiration confirmed so far:
- The Exorcist

THIS IS THE PRE-ORDER LISTING. Pre-ordering will be available in the shop until September 1st to make sure I've got enough time to dye and package your yarn. It will be shipped out the first week in October so you received it in time for pre-holiday yarning. Pre-order includes 13 mini skeins in small numbered satin bags, 13 movie quotes, 1 knitting pattern, 1 stitch keeper, and a list of 13 movies to get you ready for Halloween.
*Side Note: No movies involving rape or attempted rape will be used as inspiration for these minis.
