Knitterly News!

Phew! I don’t know about you guys, but I had a great holiday, and I am also glad they are over. I hope all of you had a good one too. Brandt and I drove up to see the Fam in Michigan, another quick trip, just Tuesday to Friday. Holy cow did we ever have a white Christmas! 10″ of snow was already on the ground, and when we drove up Tuesday, we hit some seriously nasty winter weather about an hour from the house, that took 4HOURS to get through. Ugh.

Saturday, back in Pittsburgh, we enjoyed 68 degree weather. It was like spring, and I loved every second! Brandt got salty though, he likes the kind of winter snowed in weather we had in Michigan. He is CRAZY.

Enough of the weather though, I have news! If you picked up a copy of the new Knit.1, you might have noticed that my yarn, Vesper Sock Yarn, in “Muddy Waters” was featured in a products feature along with 9 other awesome indie dyers. I’ve known about this since August, but kept mum, in case, you know, they decided not to go with my yarn. I’m still jumping up and down about it! This part concerns you all, because I want to spread the happy. So. I’m having a little blog contest, just leave a comment, and this Friday I will randomly number generate a winner. The winner will receive a copy of the new Knit.1, AND a skein of Muddy Waters for their very own.

MORE news! I know that there are a few of you out there who are very excited about the next round of my Vesper Sock yarn club, and you are in luck. I have just now made renewals available, and they will be so until Wednesday at noon, after which new subscriptions will be available. REMEMBER though, this is just for RENWALS, non current member who try to sneak in will have their money refunded. I have to be mean about this, though I wish I could have yarn available to all, I am too tiny an operation to do this.

And one more bit- I am indeed organizing a Vesper Fiber Club, which will start in March, sign ups will be February. Stay tuned for more on that!

    Yay for fiber! And I’ve been bragging on you to my in-laws ’cause you’re so famous. “Featured in a national publication” were I believe the words I used.
