my first yarn club

I have been wanting to try a club for a long time but I've never felt the desire to pay $220 to join the Socks that Rock Club (FYI, for those who don't know, that gets you six skeins of yarn in the club - and patterns to be fair - while the same amount could get you 10-11 skeins without all the foofaraw that goes with it. I'd rather get more yarn, but that's my choice and it's not right for all). Anyway. A few weeks back when I saw a post on the Knitterly Things blog about a new sock club starting, I decided to give it a whirl. Only three months, reasonably priced, etc. And she's a Pittsburgher, which in my extreme loyalty to the city made it even more 'right.'

So my first shipment arrived Monday, and I loooove it:

Vesper Sock Yarn Club, June 2008

The colorway is Lovely Lollipop Sky. It's my first self-striping yarn, can you believe it? I think I might make a pair of Jaywalkers with it.


  1. ooh Vesper! And self-striping yarn is so fun. Enjoy! =D

  2. Beee-u-tee-ful! I cannot wait to see photos of it worked up! Hmmm...maybe I'll join, it too late?
