Happy Summer!!!

Summer Solstice was this week so it is officially summer which is great since it was in the 90’s here. So…

I feel like we have all kinds of fun planned this summer so I am just going to tell you all about it in this post in an attempt to get my head around it all.

As we have done the past few summers we will be running weekly specials so do keep an eye out for the newsletters because they will have that information in them.

Starting today Yaksi Fingering and La Luna Fingering are 15% off until June 31st.  The coupon code you need for that is: birmingham18

Why have we chose those 2 yarns to put on special??

A stunningly diverse cowl!! Brioche creates such a stunning fabric and a cozy one too. I am smitten with Nona’s design and will probably knit a solid one in Yaksi  and a 2 color in La Luna. Oh my goodness what colors would you choose? Doesn’t this look like a fun knit?!

Also it would fit right into the other summer fun we have planned that actually starts today!!!

Yes!!! BINGO! Single Skein Bingo.

All the single skeins! All the single skeins!

We wanted a Summer knit-a-long that was a little different. A KAL that had some challenges and gave us a little project freedom but also had continuity. And of course it needs to be fun!! I think we hit all those markers! We will run specials all summer to coincide with our Bingo fun. Nona’s cowl would qualify for brioche, and if brioche is a new skill for you that one, if Nona i a new designer to you then there’s that one and the the high contrast one also! So much fun!!! And the prizes aren’t to shabby either! So check it out!!!

And…if you purchase yarn for this project during the next 5 days we are donating 10% of ALL sales to RAICES  (The Refugee & Immigration Center for Education & Legal Services)  

It might not seem like a lot but I am a firm believer in ever little bit helps! Whatever little bit we can do to help reunite these families.  Thank you!

Maggie also has a Stripe FLASH KAL going if you are into stripes and honestly who is not? Anything with stripes for heat to toe!!

So very much and quite honestly that is not all of it!  Blue Moon will be represented at Stitches Midwest. The ever delightful Ron and Theresa Miskin of The Buffalo Wool Company will have a whole bunch or our yarns!! Yay!

Okay I am going to sign off now so I can feed and walk the dog and prep for dye class tomorrow!

I’ll still have openings if you’d like to have a colorful good time and learn to dye yarn and work with color!

Have a lovely weekend!!
