Preorder the 2022 ChemKnits Chanukah Sampler!

You can now preorder the 2022 ChemKnits Chanukah Samplers in the ChemKnits Creations Etsy shop!  Each night of Chanukah I will have a new yarn dyeing video and you can preorder samplers or full skeins from the series in the linked listings.

There are three listings for Chanukah 2022:

  • 2022 ChemKnits Chanukah Samplers - Choose between Sock or DK weight 75% Superwash Merino / 25% Nylon yarn.  Each sampler will have 9 wrapped miniskeins totaling 100 g, a hand signed card from Rebecca, and multiple fun extras.  8 of the 10 gram minis will be wrapped with a number and the date that corresponds to a night of Chanukah for you to unwrap while watching a new Yarn Dyeing Video on the ChemKnits Tutorials YouTube Channel.
  • Sparkle Add-On Full Skein - 100 g skein of a sock weight Superwash Merino/ Lurex Blend featured in a bonus Chanukah video. This is a different colorway from the DK weight below. 
  • DK Add-On Full Skein - 100 g of DK weight Superwash Merino / Yak / Silk yarn featured in a bonus Chanukah dyeing video.  This is a different colorway from the Sparkle colorway above. 

You don't need to be Jewish to participate in the ChemKnits Chanukah Special!  I invite you all to celebrate with me.  This is one of my favorite events of the year because it is so much fun creating these videos!

******************  Frequently Asked Questions ******************

Most of the information below is included in the Etsy listings, but I figured that I would include it here for clarity.

WHEN IS CHANUKAH 2022?

The first night of Chanukah is December 18, 2022 and the 8th night is December 26, 2022.  I will release each dyeing video (1-8) after sunset EST on the corresponding night of Chanukah.  The bonus videos for any add on colorways will be released after the 8th night.  Release dates will be included in a letter inside the samplers.  All of the yarn dyeing tutorial videos will be publicly available on the ChemKnits Tutorials YouTube Channel.  https://tinyurl.com/2022ChemKnitsChanukah

WHEN WILL SAMPLERS SHIP?

2022 Chanukah Samplers will ship in early November 2022. 

ARE THE SPARKLE and DK ADD-ONS THE SAME COLORWAY?

No, each add-on base will have a unique colorway.  The DK and Sparkle bases on their own are quite different looking, so I will be dyeing each a colorway to complement the beautiful yarn using different techniques.  They may both be featured in the same dyeing video, or I might split it up into two different videos. 

CAN YOU COMBINE SHIPPING FROM MULTIPLE CHANUKAH ORDERS?

No.  Due to the volume of orders, in 2022 I will not combine shipping of orders of multiple samplers or add-on skeins that are ordered after the initial sampler order.  Thank you for your understanding. 

I FORGOT TO PURCHASE AN ADD-ON SKEIN, CAN I ORDER IT SEPARATELY?

Yes! As long as you ordered a 2022 Chanukah Sampler you can purchase an add-on.  Please note that for 2022 I cannot combine orders into one package, but you are welcome to place multiple orders.

CAN ALL OF THE MINIS BE USED IN ONE PROJECT?  IS THIS A FADE SET?

All of the miniskeins will feature the same 75% Superwash Merino / 25% Nylon yarn base in either Fingering Weight or DK weight.  These can easily be combined in one project, however they are not being dyed with a specific fade or colorwork project in mind.  There will be a variety of dye techniques on each of the minis ranging from speckles, semi solids, and more.

CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE COLOR PREFERENCES?

No.  The colors will be a surprise (which is part of the fun!)  While each sampler won't necessarily be identical, the techniques used for each night will be similar across samplers.

CAN I OPEN THE BOX ONCE IT ARRIVES AND AVOID SPOILERS?

You can open the box to avoid spoilers on the yarn colorways. The yarn mini-skeins are all wrapped.   The “fun extras” will be spoiled as they are visible in the box, but you won’t spoil any of the colorways or dyeing techniques by opening up the sampler box.

THE ITEM I WANT SOLD OUT - WILL YOU BE RESTOCKING THEM?

I always hold back some Samplers until after I have shipped out the pre-orders.  There will be a small restock early November.  I never offer preorders for yarn or bases that I do not currently have in my possession. 

WHERE CAN I FIND THE VIDEOS?

The videos will be published on the ChemKnits Tutorials YouTube channel starting Sunday December 18, 2022 at 8:30 PM EST.  You can find all of the videos as they are published in the 2022 ChemKnits Chanukah Special Playlist

The ChemKnits Chanukah videos are available to everyone, you do not have to purchase a sampler to join in on the fun. 

WHAT IS A YOUTUBE PREMIERE? 

A YouTube Premiere is when the video airs as a live event for the first play through. If you join the video a few minutes late, you will start watching in the middle of the video, like it were a live TV event. (However, you can rewind to start at the beginning.)  After the premiere is the video, the video will be available to watch on-demand.  

One fun feature of premieres is the live chat room, where you can chat and interact with other viewers while watching the video.  

WILL CHEMKNITS BE IN THE LIVE CHAT FOR THE PREMIERE? 

I will be in the live chat during the video premieres as often as I can, but I may miss some nights due to family holiday celebrations.  Chatting in the live premieres is one of my favorite parts of special series like this, I love watching you predict the colors and techniques that are coming up.
