It’s my BIRTHDAY and I’ll dye what I want to….

dye what I want too….

dye what I want too…!

It’s my birthday this weekend and I feel the need for an all out celebration of life this year  mostly because I am still here to have a birthday.  Also because I am turning 59 and well…it all feels significant!

So we are going to have some fun!

Before we get going with all the birthday fun and games I want to say, I AM SO GRATEFUL to be here!  Thank you powers that be! Thank you dear friends and family and thank you wonderful knitting family! I am truly blessed.

*************

Hello 59, I am so flippin’ glad to see you!

Okay let’s party!

We are going to celebrate all week long from this Friday to next because I can’t contain all of this joy into one day or even a three day weekend.

Of course, right off the bat, I made a special colorway to celebrate the moment, since it’s kind of what I do. I made super special birthday speckles.

See…

I started with my best color friend pond scum and made little drops of scummy goodness all over the place, then I grabbed some sassy rhodamine to spice the pond up a little bit and then, worked out from there with whatever struck my twisted little color loving fancy. I wanted it to feel like a ~ party in a skein ~ and I think it does. I am going to cast on some birthday socks sometime this weekend.

In keeping with the “It’s my birthday and I’ll dye what I want to” theme, we have put up on the Blue Moon website for this week only, most of my very, very favorite colorways. I will tell you it was hard to choose and I know I probably hurt a hue or two’s feelings by leaving them out but there are only so many dyeing hours in the day.

Maybe our first contest should be what do you think my top ten favorite colorways are? hmm… I’ll think on that while I tell you what else we have planned.

See these beauties???

I have brought in another of the short run yarns I promised this year, specially priced for your knitting pleasure.  This one is a lovely superfine, superwash merino. La Grande is seriously soft and lofty. I can see this yarn in so many applications from scarves to sweaters but most especially baby knitting!! So, so soft!  We got quite the deal on this one and of course are passing that price on to you at 15.00 a skein!

What’s a birthday without presents? Starting right this very moment there will be a give away of some sort everyday until (and including)  Friday June 3rd. So stay tuned for ~ Birthday Give Away Shenanigans ~ which will range from easy-peasy to hoop-jumping-hard.

Today we are gong to start off on the easy-peasy side of the spectrum which also just happens to be one of my  one of my favorites.

In the comment section of this post please tell me what you favorite color is and why.  It does not have to be a lot of information, it can be as simple as how you feel you look in it or how it makes you feel to be surrounded by it or it is the color of your favorite flower.  I will choose one of your comments and you will win 2 of my fav, fun coloring books!!
