I have a lot to tell you so I am just going to jump in!
It’s Spring and so it is that time of year again where our outdoor fiber festivals begin which means this weekend is The Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival!!!
My buddy Toni Neil of the The Fold has a booth ( barn 3, booth 18) chocked full of Blue Moon yarn. We sent here the new bases Cake and La Luna both. She has most of the Buffy colorways in Socks that Rock and in Super Sparkle and Yaksi Fingering with coordinating shaded solids in Cloud Nine in case you want to join our SLAY ME KAL!!
Stop by and say hi to Toni and her wonderful crew!! I am so very grateful to Toni for being Blue Moon’s absolutely wonderful rep at shows and most especially this one.
If you are not going to be at Maryland and are feeling a little low over it do not fret we have so much going on you will not feel left out.
Of course we have the SLAY ME Kal with Shannon that is going on. It has started but hey, it is never too late to join the fun.
I am so loving all of the Buffy combo’s. This Angelus one with the contrasting color in Robin’s Egg Blue – Cloud Nine just makes me happy!
So Pretty! I love this shawl Shannon. Buffy would be proud!!
Speaking of KALS… . Twist Collective is on a Spring Hiatus and they are sponsoring a KAL. We are bug Twist Collective fans so we thought we would join the fun. The idea is you choose a favorite design from the magazine to knit, then to sign-up on their FB page and RAV group to join the collective fun. Oh and Kate has posted that their are prizes!! I think you have to post to facebook to be eligible for those.
One of my all time favorite designs from Twist Collective is the stellar Celestarium by Audry Nicklin from the Winter 2012 issue and knit in our Seduction yarn in a Raven colorway. If you missed this piece of constellation knit wonder when it was first published than now you get another chance to knit and then wear this beauty of a shawl.

We are offering a 25 % discount on Seduction and our La Luna Lace for the month of May. The discount code is: springtwistalong is in effect until June 1st. What better time to knit the night sky than during the Spring and Summer when we are out enjoying it? Our very own Maggie will knit-a-long with whoever wants to joins the fun.

Okay…one more KAL to go for this post at least.
I am sure you’ve all seen that Joji has a new MKAL coming up very very soon, Starting Point. We are a little late to the party but could not resist joining in the color combining fun. If you look in the header you will see a few of the color quintets we have put together. I think any of our fingering weight yarns would work but… really I like the idea of such a big piece like like this seems to be knit with our Featherlight yarn.
When ordering if you want your yarn asap please only order the yarn you need for this and you will get it sooner! Oh, and if you have yarn you want to use in your stash and need help with color additions please let me know! firstname.lastname@example.org
We have chosen a Barn Sale and Dye Day Date for those of you who’ve been asking. You are going to want to be at this one.
Barn Sale and Dye Day is Saturday August 5th. If you want to dye please sign up as soon as you can. the slots fill up very quickly.
Okay I think that is all for now. I have finally found all the dyers I need right now so our team is shaping up quite nicely. Once I get them all trained we will be planning all sorts of knit fun!!
Have a great weekend my knit friends!! When the world around us gets a little too much remember there is always knitting!
