Pangram and Yarn

I saw this over at Lauren’s, originally from here, I think. There’s also a Flickr Pool.
Here’s mine

I’m not one for the meme’s but this one I can get into.

I also have a new-not-sure-I’ll-keep-it-around-colourway for you
This is Antigone-

This was one of those bored and throwing dye around like it was free days. Total lack of a plan on this one. Didn’t even write down what I did.

A special something for all you late night knit bloggers out there, I’m putting some Vesper up at etsy around Midnight tonight. I won’t announce it here, just check over at Etsy. Just a few skeins, about 10 or so, there will be more this week, maybe Saturday. I totally dyed my butt off this weekend, it’s so worth it, so I have quite a few skeins over here, I just have to put them through post production.

In other, I’m so fucking thrilled it hurts, news: MY CAMERA IS BACK FROM NIKON!!!!
I’m very surprised to have it back so soon, about 3 weeks since I sent it in. Amazing what happens when you send repair service people a big fat check.
I’m charging the battery now, so that I can test drive it. Cross those fingers, people!
This means I’ll have it for Maryland-Phew! Thank you again to everyone who bought my yarn last week-it’s because of you I was able to get my camera out of hauk.
Also good, good, great news, go read about Catty

    My bf in high school wrote in all caps too, but with much less flair. Btw, has it been explained where the Vesper name came from? Maybe I missed it, but I keep wondering.

    Thanks for the heads up on the Catty update! And for reminding me to do that meme. 🙂

    Hi Julia
    Have I told you how much I LOVE! LOVE! Sweet Water?!?! It arrived on Saturday and I was out town but I hurried home to get it. It is bright and vibrant and I love it!!MMMmmm might have to stay up late tonight 🙂 But then again maybe I will have to let others have a turn and not be greedy.I am glad to hear that in some small way I helped you to be reunited with your camera. I keep debating about MS&W…it is only about 3 hours from here.

    Your handwriting is unique and I especially like how you sign your name.

    Take care and keep on dyeing!! Your colors all wonderful!

    Antigone is very pretty. I like the purple and mustard together. nice.

  5. Scout says:

    That reminds me of Cranberries & Walnuts.

    I dyed today and it’s so pretty. It was FUN!

  6. Alyssa says:

    Love Antigone – it looks like the picture of your kitty from the day before inspired the colors:)

  7. Lu says:

    I received my yarn on Monday and I love it, even more than the one I am knitting now.
    I am in California, isn’t midnight already over there? I am checking Etsy. And checking. And checking.

    I love the Antigone, it’s gorgeous!

  9. Kelly says:

    Grr! I was so excited about finally buying some Vesper yarn, but etsy was down for some reason on my home computer and by the time I got to my work computer, it was all gone! Man, your stuff goes quick! (Antigone is drool-worthy, by the way!)

    I love the new colorway! Do you think it will be available for purchase someday?

  11. Jes says:

    I like the colors. I’m a big fan of one bold color amongst more subtle ones. I’d love to see a swatch :hint hint: I’m so subtle, I know =)

  12. gleek says:

    darn, i missed the yarn AGAIN. someday i’ll get my hands on it. someday.

    i like antigone!

  13. anmiryam says:

    Gorgeous colorway. Someday I’ll be able to get to the yarn in time to keep my Vesper stash healthy. Sigh…

  14. stinkerbell says:

    that colour is lovely. With the time differences I dont stand a chance in hell being that the yarn gets SCOOPED up so quick… but I love that colourway!

  15. Jasmin says:

    Can I just say I LOVE the name Antigone? My inner Greek-mythology nerd is so happy!

  16. Aja says:

    Antigone – how pretty! Reminds me of Fall for some reason, like yummy cranberries and corn on the cob (everything reminds me of food!) So damn about missing your yarn again!!

  17. Lindsey says:

    Love the Antigone colorway!

  18. jess says:

  20. Teyani says:

    yummm – what a fabuloso colorway. my vote is its a keeper!

  21. Marisol says:

    Gorgeous Yarn! I am so bummed I missed out. I got busy cooking and taking care of my kid and working on my first pair of socks after that –that when I remembered you were posting at midnight –it was too late.

    Will you be putting any more skeins up for sale soon?

  22. mmmm! Love the antigone, lovely colors. : )
    Yay! You got your camera back! yay!
