It’s August which means it’s time to announce our Fall Knit-a-long with the lovely and talented Carol Feller!
Most of us are still in the grips of a pretty epic summer heat wave. However, you can smell an ever so light hint of Autumn in the air, especially in the mornings. And yesterday there was even some low lying fall by the river here in Scappoose. At first I thought it was smoke from all of the fires but nope it was some lovely misty fog!
This year Carol has designed a beautiful pullover for us! The perfect cozy everyday wear around the house or hiking in the woods or running errands or sitting by a campfire. It’s a beautiful design that looks like a fun knit which are my favorites!
I think Tangential Blues is a beautiful and cozy addition to our winter wardrobes. A timeless pullover that is worked from the top down with raglan shoulder shaping, a delicate twisted stitch cable down the front and also down the sleeves. There’s a lovely gentle curve along the back hem created with short rows. Doesn’t it look cozy! And look how great it looks with jeans!! Also that ribbed yoke also makes a nice statement! I see this sweater looking good on so many of us! I just love the cable detail on the sleeves!
Carol and I chose one of both of our favorite yarns Targhee Worsted for this design. If you have not worked with our Targhee yarns you are in for a treat. Once you cast on that first stitch you will be in love with the lofty goodness that is Targhee!!!

If you have never been a part of one of Carol’s KAL I highly recommend it. I lover her designs and her editing is hands down some of the best in our industry. One of my favorite parts of Carol’s KAL experience is that she is right there with you. She has tutorial videos and is so engaged and responsive and just plain fun!

Something super special!!
I really wanted a special commemorative package of crafty color goodness to celebrate 18 years of being Blue Moon! And as I said at the beginning of the lunar eventful year of 2018 we were going to squeeze as much fun in as we could. We have with some great new lunar hues and quite a few specials and the birth of our color club!!!
This trio of dark moody green blue black wonder has my heart! It really does. I have so loved working on this! I get to team up with tow of my absolute fav creatives the lovely ladies of JaMPdx and Queen Bee Creations.
It all started with an idea and a seriously sexy glaze color that Jenn and Meghan were playing with. I fell head over heals in love with it’s sultry green grey goodness. It might even replace pond scum as the color of mu heart. No wait… that can’t be. I do love it that much. And then Rebecca at Queen Bee just happened to have the perfect waxed canvas to go with so all we needed was a colorway!!!!!
So here is our Moon Shadow. I really wanted to do a Moon Shadow colorway for this year and I feel these hues just fit perfectly. The bag is going to have an aqua stitched moon on it too!!!Because ya know! Blue Moon!
I know…so excited.
Okay so we will need to limit these so get in while you can. And since it not only involves dyeing but making and glazing mugs and sewing bags these are pre-orders. We will be doing a revolving shipping process and will have them out in batches on late August, September and October.
So you get a stunning moon mug, a great project bag and a skein of Socks that Rock Lightweight in our Moon Shadow colorway! ( and a small surprise in the bag!)
Happy Anniversary to us all!
Blue Moon would be absolutely nothing without every single one of you!!! I am so lucky and grateful and feel blessed to have been able to do what I love and serve such a lovely creative community of people!
Thank you so very much!!
Today is a new moon. It is a super new moon! So enjoy….
