Get ready to experience an enchanting winter wonderland with our limited edition Townhouse Yarns Christmas Cracker 2023. Inspired by the mesmerising Northern Lights, this yarn is a celebration of all the beauty that winter brings—the play of light in the darkness and the sparkle of the season.

2023 has gifted us with some spectacular displays of the Northern Lights right here in Ireland, making this year's Christmas Cracker extra special. 

As you knit your way from toe to cuff, tantalising hints of color emerge, gradually revealing a breathtaking burst of aurora borealis shades. It's like capturing the dance of colors in the night sky right in your hands. 

This year, you'll receive not one, but two skeins of yarn in your Christmas Cracker. Dive into 100g of Clarendon Sock and a delightful 50g skein of Sparkle Sock. And here's the best part—Anne-Michelle Phelan has designed the Northbright sock pattern in six sizes, so you can even whip up a matching child-size pair. Because who wouldn't want adorable matching socks for the holidays?

Christmas Cracker 2023

I have been following This is Knit on Instagram for awhile, promising myself I’d make a purchase as soon as a few of my current WIPs get completed.

Well, the Christmas Cracker 2023 / Northern Lights kits popped up, and I knew this was the one! Living in Alaska, the Northern Lights are near and dear to me and I was smitten with this yarn and pattern. ( Even though my WIPs haven’t decreased )

When my husband and I got married almost 40 years ago, our best man Eric is from Ireland and we remain great friends to this day. Both my husband and I have some Irish in our background as well, so this kit hit me on many layers!

I was so excited to get my kit in the mail, waiting impatiently for my “squishy “ mail from Ireland! I tell you that everything about this experience has exceeded my expectations by miles!

The yarn! Oh where to start?! The color is brilliant! The feeling of the yarn is so yummy! The pattern is exquisite! The package arrived when expected and opening it was the highlight of my day!

TIK communication was wonderful and they shipped it out right away. It was well packaged, waterproof, and protected.

I’m over the moon with this experience, all the wonderful people in the store, the website was easy and efficient, and I highly recommend them! If you’re ever on the fence, just jump in and make your purchase. You’ll be so glad you did! I know I am so happy I hit “buy”!

It’s on my bucket list to visit Ireland someday, and This is Knit is going to be my first stop! And probably my last stop before the airport too!

The yarn community is truly universal and I’m thrilled to add TIK as one of my “local yarn shops”.

Bless you and Happy New Year 2024.

Jenny nailed the colours on this set. The ‘aurora’ colours are perfect and pop against the dark blue. Should’ve bought more! 🙃

Beautiful kit!

The two yarns are absolutely gorgeous - love the subtle sparkle - and the pattern is so pretty. Super fast delivery to the UK too! I'm really looking forward to starting these, hopefully during the Christmas break.

Gorgeous kit

The yarn is beautiful, such wonderful colours that compliment each other. I love the pattern too as have never done toe up socks or German short row heel
