A few good things….

Hey there,

It feels like a long time since I posted. I don’t think it actually has been it just feels that way. Life has been full and busy and a little crazy and when that is the case time seems to flow quite rapidly.

I have a lot to I want to talk about so I am going to jump right in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The barn is just humming along with all kinds of color joy. We are busy dyeing all of your beautiful color combo’s for the Buffy KAL. We’ve already shipped out some of the early bird orders and will be shipping more out tomorrow and Monday.  If you would like to join our slayer of a KAL there is still time. The 15% coupon code  ( which you get when you purchase the pattern) doesn’t expire until this weekend on the 22nd which gives us plenty of time to get you your yarn for Shannon’s May cast-on date.

I can’t tell  you how thrilled I am that you all love my Buffy colorways as much as I do. I love that some of you are ordering the whole set. I would too. I might be keep the set I used for the photos in a nice safe place where I can see them. I did the same thing with the Ravens. Actually I still have the original set of Ravens.

Anyway Shannon and her lovely husband Stefan took some seriously fun photos. I so wish I could have been in on that photo shoot!

So much fun and what a stunning and sassy shawl! Just perfect for a little late night slaying. Slay Me KAL pattern page.

If you need color choosing help you can look at what we have put together here on this post. Also you can email me at info@bluemoonfiberarts.com                                                    I am always happy to help with color choices.

Speaking of color. I’ve been getting a whole bunch of requests for color help for Andrea Mowry’s  lovely Fade knit series, So Faded and Find your Fade.  So I am going to put together a few color schemes so look for those next week.

Okay so I know I promised a Dye Class/Camp Schedule quite awhile ago. I am in the process. I just have some family stuff I need to work around so I have been trying to firm that up before posting dates.

We will be having our yearly Dye Days and Barn Sale in early August this year.

In early July ( 6-9)  I will be on Bainbridge Island at the magical Islandwood with Lorilee Beltman teaching eco printing!!! I know. Pretty exciting.

You can read about all of fun and details  Knitting on a Lark retreat info here.

Here is my class description.

Color Magic

Join me as we explore the magical alchemy that is color on fiber with plants. In this three-hour class we are going to be experimenting with Eco Printing, otherwise know as “botanical contact printing”.
Petals, berries, seeds, bark, leaves, roots and stems hold all sorts of color mysteries. We are going to explore these mysteries with some creative mordanting and a little steam on: a cotton hanky, a wool yarn blank and also a skein of silk blend yarn. I seriously can’t think of a better place to learn more about plant color and printing than on the island oasis that is Island Wood.
What you need for this class is a sense of adventure, a love of color and an apron or a t-shirt that you don’t mind getting messy. Dyeing is a creative messy business!
You will leave with a new appreciation of the plants and a hanky, yarn blank and skein as affirmation that you can knit and wear!  Since our time is going to be full of dyeing we will also provide you with a set with class notes.
Lorilee has all kinds of other knit fun planned. Plus great food and a cooking class and …s’mores in a stunning place with wonderful people!
I hope you’ll join us for what is sure to be a wonderful time.
 Have a great weekend!
