I do not remember when I have been this excited to welcome in a New Year! Partially because 2017 has been one seriously tough year so I am pretty happy to see it end!! I know I am not alone in this experience and feeling. Sorry 2017 but truly you’ve been a bit of a bitch. I will thank you however for constantly teaching me to be in the moment, take one step at a time and to look for the light and love no matter what!
One of the many reasons I am excited to usher in 2018 is that Blue Moon is 18 this year! I know!! And seriously 18 years of doing anything is a long time and something that should be commemorated and in this case celebrated. Which we plan to do in spades! Starting with the serious moon magic that the celestial powers that be are giving us.
We are ushering in 2018 with a Super Full Moon that is called the Wolf Moon and if that were not enough another Full moon on January 30 that is also a super moon and a Lunar Eclipse. A seriously good omen for a new year I think.
Since we are all about the moon, especially a blue one, we are riding this magical celestial waves of wonder into our anniversary celebration year. Every month we are going to have at least one new Lunar colorway of some sort. We are starting with these two lovelies for our first full moon of the month. Once in A Blue Moon is all pale moon grey and cool blue for our winter moon ( I can’t wait to dye Once in a Blue Moon in Super Sparkle. Oh my!). Blue Moon Rising is a howling hue that rises out of the night and illuminates the darkness! (There will also be some sort of Total Lunar Eclipse Blue Super Moon color translation later in the month!) Along with your colorway you will get a Moon Note. A bit like a tarot card of sorts.
One of my very favorite songs of all time is Once in a Very Blue Moon by Patrick Alger and sung by the lovely Nanci Griffith.
One of the other things I am super excited about is ….
this years Sock Club, our Magical Mystery Tour. We have changed things up quite a bit and it is looking to be a stellar 13th year of sock knitting! Sign-ups are open and we would LOVE to have you join us for all of the knit fun we have planned. We are starting the year of with a very bright and sparkley splash! I mean really if you have the chance to start a new year with a bright sparkley splash why wouldn’t you.
Are you going to Vogue Knitting LIVE?? If so be sure to check out all of the goodness we have sent Terri O’Brien at FEATHER YOUR NEST Oh my!! I wish I could be there to see! Although it was all hanging from the rafters here for quite awhile. When I have her booth number I will post it. There is a special colorway, gradient kits, kits for The Tracey and Jodi shawls and all kinds of lovely samples! So fun!!
Okay dear knitters I am going to spend the day with my daughter who goes back to New York tomorrow.
Thank you so very much for being our knitters!! You are the very best and we are so grateful to have you in our lives!
Be safe ushering in this New Year!!
