Okay guys this is going to be a long one so pour yourself a beverage and settle in.
First of all an orders, clubs and shipping check in.
We are a little behind on our 15 business day promise on some of the orders still . Yes we are waiting for yarn which will be here this week. If we have part of your order done we are shipping that so that you have something! If you have a deadline please do let us know.
I do send emails but we are getting caught in firewalls I think. Some get through and some do not. We are changing things up so bear with us. Working on a brand new website right now!!!!!!!!!!!! I know, way past time for this one.
We also were hit by some stomach thing that pretty much knocked us all out, even me. It was bad! I will spare you the details. I have been a little concerned about the amount of sickness we’ve experienced in the past year but then I remembered that this team of mine has little ones and well… .
RSC also is a week later than I promised because of all of this.
Soft rock is out of stock until the middle of July and we had no notification of this!
Karen is in the middle of a move. I big one! So we are going to move the Silky Victoria/Everyday Cardigan KAL to my birthday week. I actually wish I had thought of this earlier. I love the idea of a KAl on my birthday!!!!! Also all of those Silky Victoria orders will come with some silk hankies so we can all knit or crochet a little silk scarf to go with our cardigans. I was dyeing some hankies for a store order and thought it would be a lovely addition to our Silky Victoria experience. I am also on a “knit or crochet silk hankies” mission, like hard core to you are forewarned.
I mentioned the new website. It’s a lot of work and a bunch of it is work I have to do because I’m doing the photo work. I want this one to be so much better and more visible. They are going to look like this.
So you will have the way it was dyed next to it re-skeined with the colors dispersed so you have an idea as to how they will knit up. I am also your customer service person right now so please bear with me. I am not ignoring you! I’m just wearing many hats!!
Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. I know we all experience this day differently. I know for myself I feel the grief because my mom is no longer here. Our relationship was not and easy one so my grief is complicated. The on the other side is I am the mother to three beautiful souls that I love so very much. Being a mother has been the best part of my life. I just loved pretty much everything about it up. well that is not quite true. My girls are both living on the east coast right now and it is way too far away.
I miss them so very much!! I know the whole idea is they grow up and move out into the world and I could not be prouder of all three of them. Just wishing they were closer to Scappoose!!
Today my youngest graduates from college and moves onto medical school.
Her brother and I could not be there. However her sister took the train down from New York to be with her and we watched it on you tube and group texted while we watched. Certainly not the same as being there but still good.
My girls today celebrating this milestone together!
and here’s my son and daughter-in-law!
and their pooches!
So dear ones I hope your day tomorrow is full of love and that what ever mother loss you experience is bearable. Please do know you are not alone.
I know some of you are waiting on yarn (it is coming!!) but…I can’t let the day go without a Mother’s Day gift from Blue Moon to you.

We have 60 so once they are gone they are gone!!!
Consider this a Mother’s Day Stash Enhancement moment!! If you need to have a yarn plan in mind I want to start a blanket project KAL . A KAL that goes for the rest of the year, after all it is a blanket! Knit or crochet. I am going to crochet one. I know… . It’s no small thing because I can’t really crochet so this will be an expanding my horizons moment. I am determined. I love crochet and have quite a thing for the granny square so I am going to conquer this one. I might need help. At the very least some hand holding.
Treat yourself or your mom or both!! You can get something to knit for your mom and surprise her on a day when she needs it.
I love those moments don’t you?
Have a beautiful day!!!
