Happy Saturday morning!!!
It’s a stunning day out already. The sun is peaking through the curtain and there is a lovely breeze which I hope lasts throughout the day, since I believe it is supposed to reach 95 today.
Today is my son and daughter-in-law’s 5th wedding anniversary!!! So we are celebrating which will be all kinds of fun. 5 years!! It feels like just yesterday that we were planning their wedding and at the same time like she has been part of our family forever! So much love!!
Aren’t they adorable!
It has been a weird week here in Blue Moon land! You know those days where no matter which way you turn you are met with an obstacle? So for every step you try to take in order to do so you have to clear the pile of bricks in your way!! Yeah that.
Tuesday was madness. Went to bank where they were have trouble with their computer system so it took forever making me late for an appt. Went to USP where their computer system was down. Luckily I have a shipping system so I went back to Blue Moon and made the label and then later that afternoon took packages to PO where they were still having issues. Decided I should get gas since my tank was low and once filled it would not start. Yup!! New car too! It finally started and this is the 2nd time this has happened so I went right to Toyota where they said they needed to keep it. So they got me a rental or at least tried to. Twenty five minutes later after having no cars, then finding one (but not the key to go with it) and yet another computer issue and then a printer issue and wait there’s more, dropping the keys under the car ~ I left Broadway Toyota. I sat in the rental for a few seconds and decided I deserved a cool beverage. So went to McMennamins on 23rd and ordered my favorite cider and guess what? Yup they were out.
Yeah! Now I know in the grand scheme of life (especially these days) that these are definitely first world problems and not life altering or damaging. It was pretty surreal though and towards then end just kind of hysterical!
I have my car back. They do not know what is wrong and want me to bring it back to them when the gas tank is low so they can go with me to see what happens. I kid you not!
Anyway that is how this week has been and finally I just decided to go with the flow because why fight it. Maybe mercury is like upside down retrograding or something.Whatever it is computer systems are not fairing well.
okay let’s talk yarn!
Isn’t it pretty?! It’s called TASY BOO!! The TASY was the mills abbreviation for Tina’s Alpaca Sock Yarn. (60% Superwash Merino/30% Baby Alpaca/ 10% Nylon ) The Boo I have no idea about, maybe mill naming shenanigans which I totally get and am amused enough to keep the name.
Anyway… it’s quite a lovely yarn but just not one we want to introduce into our line-up right now so we are offering it to you as one of our summertime short runs! We probably have about 180 skeins so it will go pretty dang fast at 20.00 a skein!! (and if you use your RSC discount even less than that).
It knits up as quite a lovely fabric at a DK weight so you can use it for garments, shawls, cowls… . Keep in mind though that the 30% Alpaca effects how the color looks. Alpaca mutes color a bit so a little lighter and dreamier is how I look at it. So very soft in feel and hue!
Okay onto some super fun knits.
I was at Coastal Yarns at Canon Beach last weekend for a short visit and saw this stunning Rose Candy Cowl by Martina Behm in our A Total Eclipse of the Sun and Shadow. Look at those stripes!! Super sexy!! I love that design of this cowl anyway but especially with this lovely color.
And look at this dynamic knit duo knit in our Plushy!! I think the colorway is Total Lunar Eclipse. I know I should know all my colorways on sight! I wish you could feel them. So flipping cozy!!
