Seriously… like love it!

***********************

Like pretty much everything about it…

I love designing yarns. I love spinning yarn. I love testing each new lot of yarn for consistency. I love reeling yarn. I love winding it into little balls or big cakes. I really love making yarn colorful by dyeing it.  I love all the weights and measure of yarn. I love getting to know all about a yarns story and what it wants to be. I love matching yarn to project. I love swatching! I really do love swatching to make sure I havethe right yarn and gauge for my project. I love that there is a worsted weight yarn and a worsted spun one. I love that a lot of yarn is twisted, a bit like me! I love the diversity of what we can use to create yarn. I really love wool yarn from all those lovely sheepies! I love the feel of yarn when I am making and wearing it. I  love really love the smell of it. I love the people I work with in the yarn industry. I love the mechanics of the yarn industry and it’s history. I love all the fiber artists I get to work with who also love yarn! I love that working with yarn and creating beauty is good for our brains, hearts and souls. I love that yarn brings us together ~ a stunning tapestry of  a community ~ loop by loop!!

All for which is really great to remember today on YARN Day and also, at a time when our industry and world is experiencing some trying times.

Today we are going to celebrate the love and yes, power of YARN!

We are going to start with some fun!!

Insta-Game ~ (Facebook)  with prizes!

I am going to post my little “what I love about yarn” paragraph to Instagram and would love for you to comment as to what you love about yarn!! I will randomly pick 10 of you who comment there with your “share yarn love” and send each a skein of Socks that Rock. Oh I will also post this to facebook so if you comment there it also counts toward being eligible for a prize.

We are also offering a YARN LOVE Discount

Starting right now (Saturday, October 13th) we are offering a 13% discount on All YARNS good until midnight Sunday (Pacific Time). Use the code: YARNLOVEDAY18 when you check out to get your discount!

I also would love to see what you are knitting with your Blue Moon yarns. If you could post a photo to instagram with the hastags #bluemoonfiberarts  and #yarnday so we all can see your creations that would be so wonderful. I can’t tell you how much it brightens our day when you share what you have made with us. After all you are why we do what we do. Otherwise we are just making and coloring yarn to hang in the barn and that is kinda silly!

What is next weekend??

Here is this years Rhinebeck 2018 colorway. I chose to go Autumn hues this year. You can find this colorway along with other of our yarns and tons of samples (including Carol Fellers Tangential Blues pullover) at The Buffalo Wool Company’s booth. Their booth is over by the souvenir shop ans 2 story barn. 22D/OD22-01 Also seriously check out their socks and the colorway I dyed for them on 2 of their lovely yarns!

Everyone have loads of fun!!

Shipping updates:

All the Carol Feller KAL yarn that has been ordered has been dyed, dried and shipped!

We started shipping RSC ( sock club) on Friday and will continue on Monday!

Moon Shadow Anniversary Trio ~ Queen Bee promised the bags this week. After we ship those out we will let you know when the next batch goes.

Out of the Hue will also ship next week!

As I have said quite a bit during the past few months I am very grateful for you understanding and patience. I am doing my very best juggling dealing with all of the yarn stuff and communicating with you about where we are. We are a very small company and a little smaller than normal right now. So if you have not heard back from em right away it is not because I do not value you. It is seriously just juggling all the yarn balls and making it all work. I personally truly value each and every one of you. I love being a dyer but I also equally love serving you!!

Okay I am sure there is more but I need to go do some shipping!!

Have a lovey weekend!!

Fall colors abound but October is PINK!!

Wow!!

Look at that, October sure sneaked right in the back door didn’t it. I feel like I totally lost the last week of September. Where did it go?

Anyway since it is October and October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. As most of you know I am a breast cancer survivor. I am the daughter of a breast cancer survivor. I have friends who are survivors and ones whom I have lost. At this point in time I think that most of us have been touched by breast cancer in one way or another. The strides that have been made in breast cancer research over the past few years are just astounding.

We are donating, as we do every October, 10% of sale to breast cancer research. I have creating a few new colorways in honor of all us breast cancer warriors! As I posted last week one of my best friends passed 5 years ago on September 26 so the F*CK Breast Cancer is especially for her!

There are also quite a few more very pink colorways on the website. One of my favorites is Tit4Tat.

Here are the links to these new colorways:

Updates:

Despite yarn delays and sickness we will have everyone that is part of the Carol Feller KAL their yarn by the end of this week!

All of the fibershare packages will be out on time!

RSC pattern  and dyer’s notes are up and the yarn will ship at the end of this week as will the Out of the Hue Club

We are waiting on bags and mugs which we expect this week. We expected the bags last week but they ran into a snag with a tag they needed to finish them.

Thank you so very much for all of your patience, understanding and sharing. So very many of you emailed and called with positive thoughts and kind words and you did this  very tired dyer’s heart good!

Oh and all of the Fair Isle books have shipped and the pdf links have been emailed!

We have to more KALS coming down the road pretty soon! One very Midwinter Moon Solstice KAL with Larissa Brown in November which this moonie is very excited about.

And another one that we are going to do with Qualyn (QUOE )which is the La Vie Boheme CAL~KAL. You can knit-a-long or crochet-a-long and make your very own winged shawl! we will have color combo’s for both of these KALS!! So look for them soon.
