Enter the Buffyverse...

So, I have the first half of the Buffyverse yarns ready to go.  These are inspired by the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the Angel TV series.  I'm not yet through the follow up graphic novels...
All the colorways are partly inspired by appearance and partly by character/personality.

Now, the big question on everyone's mind is How can I get these yarns!?!  I've thought long and hard about it and there will be two ways to get the yarns.  You can order what you like, when you want it and in whichever base yarn you like.  Or, for those who Must Have Them All!!! I will run a club-esque subscription over the course of one year, two colorways per month via the Paypal Subscription service.  I say "club-esque" because the colorways will not be a surprise and I think that's a fundamental part of clubs.

Here are the pics!

First up we have the Scoobies: from left to right, Buffy, Xander, Willow, Anya, Giles and Spike is not shown in the group pic

I covet Buffy and Lorne. I'm still sad that the actor who played Lorne passed away this week.

*drools* I love all of those.

Stupid graduate school, takes all my money that I want to spend on Buffyverse yarns.

Do you know how much they are going to be listed for so I can start saving my change?

Ok, so what does it say about me that my favorites are Spike and Angel?

Argh I need these now!! Definately up for a club-esque ;) type arrangement but i think a couple of spike skeins will have to be bought anyway :)

Gah! I apparently don't have comment notification enabled! Prices range by base yarn, but the most common is Andromeda (sw wool/nylon) at $21. And the club idea is still in the works :)
