The colors they are a changing.

Yup, it’s that time again, the seasonal color wheel here at Blue Moon is turning.

Below is the list of colorways that are going to take a wee rest.

If you have any colorways wishes this is the time to voice them. 

Any colorways of ours you have not seen in awhile that you would like to see again let us know here in the comments and we will do out best to add them in this go around.

Here is your cast of colorways that are taking a bow and then off to rest. ( They will be back at some point in time. I do not retire colorways)

Count Cluckula

Highway 30


Heart throb







Smoky Blue

Easter Scramble


Cobblestone Cty

Rolling Stone


Rock Star

Brauns Woods

Pixie Park

Bleeding Hearts


Cobalt Bloom



January One

Hurdy Gurdy

We will also be adding some new never ever seen before colorways. I haven’t even seen them yet because honestly I have not put them on yarn yet. They are still in my little color brain..

This whole sock summit thing is seriously cutting into to my relationship with color and dyeing. Shhh…don’t tell I am hoping it has not noticed.

  1. Good night colors! Have a lovely nap. Some of you are already in my stash. grin

    Can’t wait to see what’s coming up!

    November 30, -0001
  2. Lets see, colorways I would love to have back.

    My first choice would be Chickabiddy.

    My second choice would definately be Chickabiddy.

    My third choice… well..  would be… oh, you get the point.

    Bring back the CHICKABIDDY!!!

    November 30, -0001
  3. Sniff sniff… I love you Braun’s Woods!

    I love this time of year!  The changing of the colours is so exciting.  Sad to see favourites go, but happy to meet new ones and welcome old ones back. smile

    Can I request Chickabiddy, Fairgrounds, Seastone, Dixie Chicks?

    November 30, -0001
  5. Sherry #

    Nooo, not count cluckula! it’s my favorite! LOL!!!!

    Oh, I must do some shopping. Anyway, please bring back Chickabiddy.

    I LOVE blue moon. it’s my favorite yarn. you are wonderful.

    November 30, -0001
  6. How long do I have?  Bleeding Hearts just came back!  It can’t go away so soon!  I must check my finances.  We can’t have this!

    November 30, -0001
  7. Carol Hoover #

    I don’t know if this was a colorway but I keep looking through BMFA for a Lemon Yellow semi solid.  I have Sunstone and that is too golden.  I want a lighter yellow, just a basic yellow that is light and semi solid.  (not like Hoofle Foofle, I have that too and it is not that lemon color or banana color)

    Thank you

    November 30, -0001
  8. Is that the Tidepool that I loved so much from last year’s sock club?  Must see if I can afford another skein right. Now.  smile

    November 30, -0001
  9. Arlene #

    I’d love to see Sherbet and Thistle make an encore appearance.  And yesterday when I was knitting with Pride, I realized I was loving the way the aqua, yellow and orange colors were stacking up – any chance of seeing that in a future colorway?  Can’t wait to see what comes next!

    November 30, -0001
  10. I’d love to see Knitty Rocks and Foofaraw come back.  I can’t wait to see the new colors!

    November 30, -0001
  11. Jessica #

    As always I love every colorway offered, though if you brought back Fairgrounds,Cracked Canyon, Chickabiddy, and possibly Backstabber I’d permanently let BMFA have access to my bank’s routing number. smile

    November 30, -0001
  12. I was just wondering if that Peek-a-Boo Peony at the top of the blog page is a tease, and can it please be turned into a new colorway? Please, please?

    November 30, -0001
  13. Sarah #

    I vote for Peek-a-Boo Peony too!

    November 30, -0001
  14. arctiknits #

    Please bring back Smokey Topaz.  Also would like some more shaded solids and multi-color wave.  Thanks so much for all the wonderful colors!

    November 30, -0001
  15. I’m glad I’ve got a skein of Hurdy Gurdy in my hot little hands!

    November 30, -0001
  16. Emilee #

    Scottish Highland please!!!!

    November 30, -0001
  17. Lynne E. #

    Thanks for the heads up–I just restocked Bleeding Hearts, which is one of the all-time-best colorways.  I’d like to see more colorways with lots of vivid red.  And I’m still eagerly awaiting the arrival of Prickly Pear.

    November 30, -0001
  18. …adieu…i love you all….

    November 30, -0001
  19. Trisha #

    I would love to see rhodonoite (got that in a monkey kit and LOVE it!), backstabber, mr. green jeans, sherbert, prickly pear (saw on ravelry), and hard rock. I may come back after I have time to check out ravelry–lol.

    November 30, -0001
  20. I can’t wait to see the new colors!  Although I must say I am still basking in the glow of all the new coastal/beachy ones you just released recently.

    But I wonder, will we ever see you re-visit your uncomfortable color red and see something more neutral, less warm, almost true red?  But not so blue it goes pink like Lover’s Leap.  Love Brick but it’s on the orange side and we all know Just Right Red is really Just to the Right of Red (aka Orange)!

    November 30, -0001
  21. Sarah #

    Indian Paint Rock pleeease. smile I’m beginning to sound like a broken record.

    November 30, -0001
  22. your “little color brain.”

    tee hee.

    (Funny, except I suspect it’s like Narnia in there: may look little from the outside, but…)

    November 30, -0001
  23. Jen #

    I love, love, love your colorways (so much color: bright, jewel, neutral, …)!  Reds, rust orange, greens, on and on … I love them all.  So more of those, but I would love to see more shaded solids too.  There are so many new patterns with lots of texture that would show up in more shaded colorways.

    November 30, -0001
  24. Horrors! Not Scaponia! Not Bleeding Hearts!  Must have more! Must stock pile!!!

    November 30, -0001
  25. LissaGail #

    I was trying so hard not to order for a while, but now I just can’t resist.

    As for colors to bring back, Dixie Chick and Froggin, pretty please with sugar on top!

    November 30, -0001
  26. E #

    Braun’s Woods? Pixie Park? Storytime, Treehugger, and Cobblestone City? These are all intriguing names for colorways I haven’t yet seen.

    Where have *I* been?

    Sigh… and I thought I was doing such a good job of resisting stash enhancement lately.

    Must… visit… right… nowwwww…

    November 30, -0001
  27. Kathryn Sigman #

    Would love to see Chickabiddy and Sherbert back!  Pretty please?

    November 30, -0001
  28. Lindsay #

    Sherbet, Knitty Rocks, and chicka biddy!

    November 30, -0001
  29. Nancy M #

    Excited about all the new colors.  I know I sound like a broken record but, I would love to get my hands on some chickabiddy!

    November 30, -0001
  30. maria #

    my wish list:



    plymouth rock (please please!)

    ooh la la

    celestine (please please please!)

    aquamarine (please please!)


    and some new (or old) chicken-based colors!

    November 30, -0001
  31. Katie M. #

    Well I kinda think it would be wonderful to see some more colorways that are on the cooler side of life, violets, blues, and greens, in more muted tones.

    November 30, -0001
  32. Donna (hulaknitter) #

    OMG, do we have a vacation departure date?  Must make my list and shop soon then…..

    Please bring back:


    Hawaiian Punch

    Apple Valley Road (just LOVE the name)

    Cherries Jubilee

    Mr. Green Jeans

    Ms LaRock

  33. mrslaceknitter #

    Oh, my dear Tina, it is so good to see a new post from you.  I hope this means you have almost completely dug yourself out from the Summit avalanche.  Whew!  Hopefully it will make your return to the yarn more sweet than ever.

    November 30, -0001
  34. Carol #

    I was just introduced to Blue Moon Fiber Arts at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival this past May. I wasn’t quite sure what the fuss was all about so I purchased two Mill Ends in the medium weight for a pair of socks. Well, now I’m hooked and I’m the proud owner of five skeins. I LOVE Heartthrob what a beautiful colorway. I like all of the colorways some more than others. So I need to hurry up and purchase: Cobblestone County and Lochness. I can’t wait so see them in person.

    November 30, -0001
  35. Kassia #

    Add me to the list of people who are looking for chickabiddy!  I love that combination of colors.  smile

    Glad to hear things are getting figured out on the Sock Summit side of things– hopefully you’ll be back to dyeing soon!!  Thanks so much for SS, I can’t wait until August.  😀

    November 30, -0001
  36. chester #

    Oh, I hate to see these colors go… But, I’d love to see some lucious, rich browns.  Chocolate:  Light chocolate.  Dark chocolate. (I’m seeing a Cherry Cordial with delicious reds and pinks and chocolate browns.) Or Espresso.  OR Cafe’ au Late.  Or Mahogany.  OR Teak.  You get the idea.  There is such a lack of browns in the sock yarn pantheon, and if anybody could do it well, you could…Keep up the good work!

    November 30, -0001
  37. Kathy #

    I would love to see Cockeyed, Mr. Green Jeans, Foofaraw, Froggin – and I will add to those who would like Chickabiddy!

    I also would like to see the Prickly Pear that I have seen photos of!

    November 30, -0001
  38. Alice in the Heartland #

    You mean nobody’s noticed the twitch? The fingernail chewing, the glazed look in your eye, the listless movements? Surely Deb, Becky and Annalea have been looking at you strangely and making pointed suggestions about going to the dye pots. Way past time to go get the “book” and go have some FUN! Go forth with haste and be the depraved dyer we all love and know so well.

    I have no suggestions for returning colorways as I get to play with dye this weekend at Iowa Sheep and Wool. Also I’ll just see what Toni has in her shop tomorrow. Can you say Road Trip? Marengo to Marengo. Love it and you. Hugs, Alice

    (p.s. I love your password generator on this thing. nature42 nothing like it and the answer)

    November 30, -0001
  39. Kristen in Green Bay #

    I would love to see Sherbet and Chickabiddy return. Most of all, I am going to miss Count Cluckula! This is my favorite colorway of all time and I hope its vacation is very short!

    Thanks for such great yarn and colorways. You bring so much joy to us through your work. Please remember this when you are preoccupied with the Summit!

    November 30, -0001
  40. Sue #

    I would like to see a deeper pink/orchid shaded solid come back.  Did you have a Bosenberry colorway at one time?  When knitting with some colorways such as Watermelon Tourmaline or Dutch Canyon I would like to have a shaded solid to use like the darker pink in those colorways for trim or a contrast color.  Thank you.

    November 30, -0001
  41. Katherine #

    I would like to see Bandad Agate come back and be offered in other bases – I don’t think it was available in many different bases before…

    November 30, -0001
  42. Kjirsten #

    Backstabber please…and Prickly Pear…and more shaded solids. Farewell, Count Cluckula. I’ll miss you.

    November 30, -0001
  43. Ukhattie #

    November 30, -0001
  44. I hope that Peekaboo Peony is a new colorway! I’d also love to see more shaded solids!!! And, I know it was a special edition colorway, but I would love, love, LOVE to have SeaMar!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease?

    November 30, -0001
  45. Denise #

    “We will also be adding some new never ever seen before colorways. I haven’t even seen them yet…”

    I love that!

    – Denise (dlotter on ravelry)

    ps – I’d like to buy y’all on the SST-1 & SST-2 a round of beer if I get the chance… maybe Thursday night after the SS reception? I’m working on corralling all the Aussies too. That’s a long trip, I figure they might be thristy : D

    November 30, -0001
  46. Oh dear Tina, may I pretty, pretty please get Velvet Moon and Emerald City?  If not now, could you bring a couple to Black Sheep. I will die happily amongst my ever growing Blue Moon stash if I could just have those two beautiful colors that keep evading me!

    November 30, -0001

    November 30, -0001
  48. Lillian #

    November 30, -0001
  53. Oh, I forgot!  I owe Irishgirlie a SeaMar and I was supposed to remind you to add it for the summer update.  Please!  and Thank you!

  55. LisaDinPA #

    Love any and all of your colors, but the real reason I’m commenting is to send a huge THANK YOU to you and everyone else working on SS09 (even if it is cutting into other parts of your lives).  I got my actual REFUND check for the double registration during the panic of 11:00 PDT on 5/26.  I was amazed that the check was handwritten, the note in the card was handwritten, even the envelope was handwritten!

    Wow.  Thank you!

    November 30, -0001
  56. Little Bunny Foo Foo or Foofaraw would be lovely to see again if possible-


    November 30, -0001
  57. Knitter Kitter #

  58. Jen #

    I will so miss my beloved Count Cluckula and hope it is only a short rest for the royal yarn and he is back shortly.

    I also vote for Chickabiddy, Backstabber, Velvet Moon, Apple Valley Road and Love in Idleness.

    November 30, -0001
  59. RobinG #

    I vote for prickley pear and colorways of cotton sock yarn

    November 30, -0001
  60. jmcmjoan #

    Dear Santa…oops, Tina:

    These are my wishes:  Olive Garden, Chickabiddy, Backstabber. 

    I have been a reeeeeally good girl this year.  I fondle all my STR and even knit with it sometimes.  I always keep it picked up, esp. after rolling in it on the floor.  I’ll try to do better next year, and place orders as often as possible.  I’ll even try to cook dinner for my family sometimes instead of knitting.  oxo, jmcmjoan

    I’d like to see Neptunite!

    I can’t find it anywhere so I assume it was put to rest.

    November 30, -0001
  62. Michelle #

    I would love Aquaboy and Prickley Pear!!!

    November 30, -0001

    Hello!  I agree with Jen…I’d love to see more semisolid colors to use for textured pieces!

    November 30, -0001
  65. So glad I got some Space Dust recently.  There are several on that list I fear I’m going to miss and will look forward to their return.

    November 30, -0001
  66. Sharon T #

    Bye Bye babies.  See you soon.

    Lobbying heavily for:

    Romancing the Stone and Sedona.  Have been waiting since forever for these to return.  They were among my first and most beloved and I have cleaned out my stash of these beauties.

    November 30, -0001
  67. Lou/Happystasher #

    I’d love to see Olive Garden come back! I’ve been wanting some for a while.

    November 30, -0001
  68. Hmmm….I’d love to get my hands on some Kryptonite. Peacock and Musk, too.

    November 30, -0001
  69. Denise #

    I have a skein of Double Dutch Canyon that I have had forever, afraid to use it up, because it is my favorite STR colorway ever.  I would *love* to see that one again, so I could buy more (and finally use the skein I have without fear!).

    November 30, -0001
  70. oh, i’d love to have some sherbet please!  smile

    November 30, -0001
  71. I can’t wait to see what new colors you have in store for us!!  I don’t have any particular requests, other than never discontinue Pepe le Plumes…hehehehee

    But, if I must, Aquaboy and Apple Valley Road…..

    or Peek-a-boo Peony!

    November 30, -0001
  72. Lou/Happystasher #

    I forgot to mention in my previous comment that I’d also like to see Pisgah and Peacock come back—plus, I second what Irishgirlieknits wants to come back—we have similar taste in colors so I trust her judgement. :o)

    I just put in a BIG order!! I did this now to save room in my suitcase what I want to buy at Sock Summit. Oh yeah, baby!!

    November 30, -0001

    I missed out on all of the older teal green colorways.

    Mr. Greenjeans comes to mind smile

    November 30, -0001
  77. Ann Rose #

    I’d most love to see Rhodonite make a return, I just adore the pinks and purples in the one lonely skein I have. Also Apple Valley Road—my childhood neighborhood was called “Apple Valley,” so I *need* some Apple Valley Road socks or a shawl! Scottish Highlands would be wonderful, and/or Little Bunny Foo Foo.

    (Cahtchpa was 45 changes, how appropriate! 45 new/returning colorwys, perhaps? wink
