Seems like there’s all kinds of change in the wind these days. A natural progression with the shifting of the seasons.
I love the one we are in right now from the hot and bright run in ocean at the beach summer kind of energy to the more let’s sit by the fire, knit and listen to the rain with the hot beverage of you choice. My friend Gail and celebrate this time of the year since it is her absolute favorite .
Here in Blue Moon land we celebrate this time of year with a color change since is kind of what we do. So we have put up some of my favorite colorways in line with the season and quicker that we’d like approaching holidays.
I love going meandering the colorway database (yup there is a colorway database) when it’s time to pick new colorways. It’s a super colorful trip down memory lane. I am reminding of the why and when and how I made each colorway and who for or with. I pour myself a glass of wine, sit down with my trusty laptop and visit with my color friends.
Here they are:
Of course we will be adding brand new colors to this in the next few weeks!
Knitters all over the planet are headed to New York right now because ….New York Sheep and Wool, lovingly referred to as, Rhinebeck. I have never been to Rhinebeck. I know…it’s a bit ridiculous. My yarn is always there thanks to my dear friend and yarnie extraordinaire Toni Neil of the Fold.
Toni has been traveling the country pulling her yarn-V doing shows and events for what seems like forever. I have been lucky enough that she has taken my yarn and fibers down all these exciting fiber trails with her.
I thank my lucky stars the day I called The Fold looking for these super special spindles made by Gabe that only Toni carried at the time. I bought two I think and still have them both! We became fast friends and have been so ever since. I think we talked for like 30 minutes that first phone call.
Toni was one of the very first people to buy my roving and handspun which is what I did way…way…back then. That she believed in me and continues to do so has meant more to me than I have words to express.
This weekend will be Toni’s last Rhinebeck! I know… . As she has said it is time to hang out and knit and spin. we are both getting rockers for the front porch. we might have to get and extra for Gail and Kaci too or they will be super jealous.
So please if you are at Rhinebeck stop by and say hi and give her a big ol hug. Give her one for me too.
Thank you Toni for all you have done for me and Blue Moon on this journey of ours! Can’t wait for the next chapter.
Thank you to Bill and Nan for loving Toni as much as I do!!!
We are still recovering or at least trying to from whatever this bug is that has laid us all out. I thought I would have a full team today and had three of them out so send healthy thoughts this way please!!
Also…get you flu shot!! We all wish we did.
Thank you so very much for all of your understanding and patience.
Have a great weekend!
