Joy

We have been having a little extra fun lately and I thought maybe you would like a glimpse into our super wooly and very colorful world.

The two sock club colorways Sprinkles and Shannanogins inspired us in many ways. I walked into the barn one afternoon and was met with  this!

I knew  they were us to something because every time I walked in there was giggling and whispering.

So…we could not leave Sprinkles out of the fun. Seriously you don’t want colorway animosity. And  since my buddy Karen was here who is one of the designers for the January sock club of course we had to have cupcakes with some sprinkles on top! I mean really we are not heathens.

Please be assured no cupcakes were harmed, they were consumed but not harmed!

So much fun!!

We also might have built a bit of a bit of a pyramid, a triangle really, with the Shannanogins colorway. Cause why wouldn’t you? You have to pile it anyway might as well be creative with it.

Yeah!

And then there was Tutu Day! Thanks to Kalia wh0 is Blue Moon’s CFO (Chief Fun Officer) .

You can see from this picture why Kalia is our CFO. She’s a but of an imp!

I have such a great team and this isn’t even all of them. Becky was out sick and Debra off having an adventure.

Know that you yarn is not only infused with color and all other wooly goodness but also a great deal of love and joy!

Have a great weekend.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAShort Attention Span

Life pulls us in all kinds if directions and usually all that same time. The last thing we want or need from our knitting projects is more pressure. What are the best sock type of knitting that takes no time, are fun and great to wear? Anklets! They are the perfect low pressure sock knitting. So… if you find yourself feeling bogged down by your current project and you need a little break then put it in ones of those lovely bags you have and cast on these lovely anklets. They will literally fly off your needles with the Flying Geese pattern along the top, and the back cuff which add a nice visual and knitterly interest.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAStolen Moments

A fun reverse stockinette stitch path up the front, and an easy toe-up design, Stolen Moments are perfect for those little times in our very busy lives when we need to be somewhere, but don’t actually need to BE there. Knit in Sock that Rock Lightweight. Colorway Shown here is: It’s a Supernatural Thing!

Make that a knit-moment and take it for you. You are worth it!

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASmithy 

We all have way too many irons in our personal fires and feel the pressure of all that heat.  Smithy is a great pattern for letting off some of the daily steam of life and maybe channeling your inner blacksmith. So…put another iron in your knitterly fire an cast on these socks for a little peace of mind. They knit up quickly, with an easy-to-memorize chevron pattern that is elevated by that highly variegated skein of Sock that Rock Lightweight that’s been winking at you from your stash.  Colorway shown here is: Shabby Chic Oasis

Three delightful toe-up sock patterns that are not only perfect for those wee bits of time we all have – waiting for this, killing time until that… but are also fun knits and seriously cool socks!

These lovelies are available individually for $5, or as a set for $11.
