A little fun!
If you head over to the Blue Moon instagram account you will find a very fun Give Away!!!
Earlier in the week I was moved to share the color story of Fire on the Mountain and Muddy Autumn Rainbow. It was great fun to revisit that experience so I decided a Give Away with them as the hot color duo they so obviously are. Great fun!
What you have to do is comment on the post on Instagram and tag a fiber friend with which one of you is more of a Fire on the Mountain and which of you is more of a Muddy Autumn Rainbow.
Example Hey @redkaci I’m a Muddy Autumn Rainbow to your Fire on the Mountain! And they will respond with what they think and that is where the fun comes into paly!
You have to follow us on instagram to be eligible to be picked as a winner. I will pick 2 friend duos and each of you will get the a skein of Socks that Rock in the one you most vibe with.
See? FUN. You should go read some of the comments so far. I had to clean the dye barn yesterday, not my favorite job! So all of the colorful friend comments has kept me thoroughly entertained and uplifted. I hope the same is true for everyone else.
Here is the color story of Fire on the Mountain and it’s sister color Muddy Autumn Rainbow.
I am an aging hippie chick. I love music and have been a deadhead (Grateful Dead fan) forever!! So…of course I would be inspired to create colorways inspired by my fav songs. My first one was of course Fire on the Mountain!! I was so pleased with how it came it out. I felt like I captured the feeling of the song and time actually. And it has been one of our most popular colorways so yay!!!
Since it was so popular that meant dyeing it quite a bit. It’s actually still to this day very popular. I had dyed so many skeins I thought I could do it in my sleep but evidently not!! One day I was working on a few store orders ( hundreds of skeins) And I was kinda tired and maybe a tiny bit cranky. About 40 or so skeins in I realized I had mixed up the color sequence. Oh I was so pissed-off at myself. (I might have a tiny bit of a temper.)
So I took a few deep calming breaths and well it did not help. So I slapped both hands down my on the skeins and just swooshed all the color back and forth. I’m not going to lie it was pretty flipping satisfying. I put it to steam and did not think anything of it. I just went on to finish the order.
Well… the next day when Rosie was rinsing the yarn she’s like holy cow Tina what the heck is this? So I went over to investigate and found my rage skeins and they were stunning! I knew what it was right away and had a good chuckle. I told her what I had done and she said I sure hope you can repeat this. We had a good laugh. And you know I did not think I could repeat it. I did remember the color sequence goof so that was fine it was the rage swooshing I did not think I could do again without the rage aspect. It turns out i could. haha
I have to say Muddy Autumn Rainbow is one of my favorite colorways of mine. It also is one of our more popular colorways. I think they are pretty equal even though Fire on the Mountain was around for longer than Muddy Autumn. All of this has made me consider what other of my colorways would look good with a little depraveDyer cranky swoosh. Haha!!
So…which one are you? Are you Fire on the Mountain or a Muddy Autumn Rainbow?
I think I fluctuate between the two but feel I am more of a Muddy Autumn Rainbow hippie chick!!
Okay I am off to dye for the day.
I sent out a newsletter with updates. There is a link to it in my profile on instagram. If you are not on the newsletter list you can also sing up there.

Hope you all are well!
