Number 116!! Lisa S! She has been emailed and is super happy! Thanks for all who left a comment! I loved reading where you all prefer to knit! Far and away, knitting and movie watching is the most preferred! That is my favorite too, though I do usually have knitting where ever I go.
**Comments are closed!! Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments! I’ll be naming the winner shortly!**
I have been looking forward to the release of this book since I first heard about it! Being a Knitter in a Knitter’s world, I have been acquainted with Vera Brosgal (find her on IG here!) and her work and knitting for years (remember when Flickr was the place to be?? Yeah. ). Her book, about a Granny Knitter just wanting to be left alone to her knitting, was released this past Tuesday, and it is gorgeous! The Illustrations! The Color Palette! The Story! There is nothing not to love.
I thought I’d share my excitement with all of you, and GIVE AWAY a copy! The winner will also receive a Knitterly Things ‘I Heart Yarn’ bag, AND a special edition Mitten Yarn Kit, with one copy each of our Chevron Love Mittens, and Super Simple Stripey Mittens patterns.
To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite place/most ideal setting to work on your knitting. One comment per person, please. Winner will be drawn by random number generator sometime this Sunday. Thanks for playing, and good luck!
New favorite colorway!! I *may* have dyed some cones ends for myself! Harvest Rainbow is now in the shop, in my SW wool/Nylon base, and by the end of the month I’ll have it available in my superwash merino 2ply base.
I’ve also added a few colorways too, with more on the way! Check it all out here!
It’s that time again! The light is changing, the kids are back in school, and it’s almost officially Autumn. The Fall 2016 round of our Vesper Sock Yarn Club is now ready for signups! Click here for more!
In July, Knitterly Things celebrated TEN YEARS of our online shop! Vesper Sock Yarn has been around slightly longer! First, as wholesale, then on Etsy, and then with our own shop. The first order was placed on July 18th, 2006. Since then we’ve taken over 10,000 orders (not bad for a mostly one woman production!) dyed THOUSANDS of skeins of yarn. Self Striping, fingering weight, and otherwise. In the last year, we’ve begun wholesaling again, and have a few most excellent yarn shops physically stocking our yarn.
To celebrate, and mark the occasion, we’ve thrown all yarny caution to the wind, and come up with a colorway that stripes in 12 (TWELVE) colors. AND THEN WE DYED IT IN OUR SPARKLE BASE, GLITTERFUL! I KNOW! Then we named it Disco Superfly, because, really. DISCO. SUPER. FLY. For more, and to preorder, click here!
I thank all of you sock knitters, from the very bottom of my yarn loving heart for allowing me to continue to do this, year after year. I look forward to coming up with more amazing colorways, and in the next year, look for Knitterly Things on the road, as we begin to vend yarn shows again!!
Trying my hand at something new!! Inspired by all the beautiful speckled yarns I’ve been seeing around, and by the lovely squooshiness of a new MCN base yarn, I’ve created ‘Bespeckled’ Vesper MCN Sock Yarn!
These two colorways are in the shop now!
I’m really looking forward to dyeing more of these up! If you decided to add these to your stash, use code FIREWORKS10, to take 10% off your entire order! Code expires Monday at 11:59 EST!
