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!

Lucky commenter #18, Laura! Aka, MiniLaura! I sent her prize out earlier this week, and am happy to say, she loves it. I loved reading about all of your knitterly plans for this year!! So many want to learn/knit brioche, I never would have guessed! My own knitting involves lots of socks, a hat or two, and definitely a sweater for my husband who I haven’t knit a sweater for since before we had kids! He used to get a new one every year!I have a couple of design ideas swimming around too, and I am excited to work on them!
Thanks everyone for playing! I have another giveaway planned for later this month, stay tuned!!

Happy New Year!! Today I am super happy to bring you my newest pattern, using my Vesper Sock Yarn with Nylon base yarn!
It is currently available as a Ravelry Download in my Ravelry pattern shop for $4.00. Click here to check it out and get the pattern!
It uses less than a full skein of my sock yarn, and they knit up quicker than socks on US 3 needles. Enjoy!!
