Trick or Treat
Smell our wool clad feet.
Give us something sweet to
As most of you know it’s our favorite time of year here at Blue Moon. All the colour and wonder that is autumn from fields full of pumpkins, hay rides through corn mazes, hot apple cider to, last but certainly not least, a little spooky All Hallows Eve goodness.
So…. as mentioned in my earlier post and in celebration of all of these haunted hues, we’ve added to the website, for a short run, Trick or Treat Bags.
As you can see from the picture above, we’ve had a massive amount of fun putting these together for your haunting colour work knit pleasure, we’re considering them as a seasonal offering. I feel you can use these for just about anything your hallowed hearts desire from hats to socks and all they lies between. Even if what lies in between is a skeleton suit or a pumkin cozy. I want a pumpkin cozy!
We also have a little Trick contest and naming game:
Since it is our favorite season we’re celebrating in the way we know best… colour! We have new colourways that are on the website in their normal way, all named and categorized.
What we also have is, 10 new colourways that we’ve hidden throughout the website. These colourways need naming and we thought maybe you’d like to help us with that. After you find them of course. (That’s the trick part.)
Here’s how we envision this working.
The finding part:
The first 4 knitters to find the whereabouts of all 10 wins a 15% off coupon from us. Please submit these on the blog post titled Trick or Treat.
The naming part:
We need names for all 10. You can play by just choosing a name for the one that speaks to you or you can submit names for all 10.
We ask that you only submit one name per skein (each individual colourway).
Submit your choices in the comment section of the the Trick or Treat blog post.
Once you start finding them you’ll see how you can associate and submit the name for that particular colourway. They are marked in a way that will make that easy and obvious. We just don’t want to give too much away.
We learned the last time we did this just how smart you all are. And really we should’ve known.
The Treat part! What’s in it for you? Well…there’s the glory of your chosen name on our yarn. If that is not enough you can choose between the skein you’ve named or a 10% off coupon for the website. And as always our undyeing gratitude .
The Trick and Treat contest runs from today (Thursday October 18th) to Wednesday October 24th at 2:00 pm Pacific time.
I, your depravedDyer will then have my wicked way with your name choices. I love this part!!
And yes the new colourways are available to purchase as their as of yet unnamed selves.
Remember we are a very tightly plied bunch here so the wackier and weird the name the better. You can explain your reasoning behind your name choices. We love a good story.
Paula and Heather do request that the names be no more than 5 words long. It has to fit on a yarn band.
I think that covers it. As always email with any questions
May the naming force be with you!
Happy (almost) Halloween
Your Blue Moon Witches!
ps. Do you know what kind od closet out Witchy poo is knitting in and then what that means about the yarn cake?
