Rose City Yarn Crawl

Hey there! Remember me?
I know, it’s been awhile.
Life has been pretty intense in Blue Moonland trying to catch up on orders, stay sane (hahahaha) and stay ahead of whatever craziness Mother Nature has decided to throw our way. I can tell you I have lived here for almost 20 years and have never experienced a winter like this one, and you know what? I would really be okay with this all having been an anomaly. Fingers crossed.

So, first things first. We are just about caught up on orders. Yay!!!!
Thank you all so very much for your understanding and patience. I have said it before ~ Blue Moon has the most wonderful knitters!!!

Okay so next week is the Rose City Yarn Crawl. I know…how did that happen?

I am so excited! Are you excited?

So much yarn love and knit fun to be had.

We have worked with the Twistedista’s again this year on RCYC exclusive colorways created for the theme. This year’s theme Portland Pastimes was really fun to create colorways for. Twisted chose as their pastimes ~ “Standing in line for brunch.” and “Dressing to match your pet.”

I am so very tickled with the colorways and names we came up with for these two fun themes.

Of course, Standing in line for brunch had to be Breakfast Club!!! One of my all time favorite movies, so full of teenage angst. What’s not to love? Also, it could not be more Portland! I took hues from Bender, Claire, Andy, Allison and Brian’s wardrobe and them altogether for a very Portland Breakfast Club colorway! Don’t you think?
Look the perfect pairing!

I truly love this cowl and think we might need a Breakfast Club Queuing KAL! Anyone game?

Our next colorway was a bit harder to come up with. Dressing to match your pet. Hmmm…. I decided on speckles and because PDX does love it dogs I went canine instead of feline. Shh..don’t tell my cats!

Here we have for you knitting pleasure, Dress Like Your Pet! Brown and black speckles on white with some a little splash of Aqua because it’s Portland and we are all about the water here in the Pacific Northwest!

I love Megan’s design. I pretty much love everything Megan designs. I find her crochet intriguing enough to make me want to give it a go but, I know better. I have tried. I have a thing for granny squares so… so I have tried a square or 20. It’s not pretty. I am sad to say that my granny squares are not square and would put my granny to shame.
Anyway, I digress.

And…

Blue Moon Fiber Arts Yarn Tasting,
Sock Show n’ Tell & Color Fortune Telling
with me
Saturday, March 4 from 10:00-4:00pm
Take a moment out of your hectic shopping schedule to stop in and say hi, maybe sample a yarn or two with Maggie and myself. We would so love to see you and your socks or anyone other blue moon knit show and tell you might have!! We will be bringing some new yarns for you to see and test and some new colorways too!! I am also going to wear my Color Witch hat for some fun and insightful color readings! Come see what the color cards have in to say!
We can do sock, knitter and dyer selfies if you like and just have a colorful time.

All Pop-Up Events will be held at the Twisted Annex – 2239 NE Broadway, a bright yellow building with turquoise trim diagonally across the street from Twisted’s main shop. Please be safe: We strongly recommend taking advantage of the signaled crosswalk at the intersection of NE Broadway and 24th when traveling between Twisted and our classroom annex.

So much….

Okay a few more things before I go outside and enjoy the actual sunshine that is out today. So strange yesterday there were snow flurries all day and today it’s sunshine!

Next week, Shannon Squire’s new Socks for Busy B’s 2 collection is hitting the streets, and Socks that Rock is playing a starring role! Three sock patterns, each one both toe-up AND cuff-down, in a wide range of sizes. PLUS, a bonus 2-week discount on your favorite sock yarns. Shannon will announce the collection on Instagram and her newsletter.

She might be using my new favorite colorway!

Have a great weekend!

A little lighthearted knit fun!

One of the parts of my job that I really, really, really love is creating themed colorways! I especially like doing so with the designers and stores we work with. Usually I get a theme form and maybe some photos or we come up with a theme together and then am asked to put my spin on it. It’s the translation and the challenge of it all that I so love. I do love me a good color challenge. Of course themes speak to me and are more fun than others. However there is always that challenge aspect that pulls me in right in and inspires me.

I am sure the over 11 years I’ve spent dreaming up themes and colorways for our notorious knitters in our Rockin’Sock Club kind of trained me for this kind of color work and play.

Here is a current list of the stores that I am working pretty intimately with on pretty large color projects.

For years I have designed colorways for Twisted in Portland for the Rose City Yarn Crawl. We plan on expanding that this year with some PDX themed one also.

I have created all kinds of club type kits for both Simply Socks Yarn Company and The Loopy Ewe. Most of these have been one-time-only hues only available for a very short period of time.

Last year I started working The Loopy Ewe on a once a month specific colorway based on Sheri Berger husband’s photography. He’s a brilliant photographer so it is all kinds of fun to go through his files and choose pics that bot Sheri and I are inspired by and then translate all that beauty onto yarn. We had so much fun we are doing it again this year. We are doing this again this year. So look for those colorways mid-month of the Loopy Ewe site.

We also work with Erin Walker and her ridiculously fun team at Eat Sleep Knit on their Yarnathon
Last year they had a space theme which was pretty great since I am a big Trekkie and Rd Who fan.
This year though has just been a blast because the theme is the game Candyland which was my favorite game as a child. We have come up with 9 count them…NINE special Candyland inspired hues. I did a ton of research on these. I used the older board that I was more familiar with for my inspiration and of course also tons of feedback from Emily Ann and the rest of the ESK team. Yes, as you can tell I am pretty excited! How could you not with characters like Lord Licorice and his bitter bats and Mr. Mint and of course his royal sweetness himself the Imperial Head Bonbon King of Candyland.
Here they are in all of there color glory!
.

I cannot tell you just how tickled I am with these. The colors and the names and just every little thing about them. If you do not know about the Yarnathon do check it out it looks to be all kinds of fun. Look at the board they made!!
Gameboard

So very much fun!!!!

Okay so that is it for now! I will do my very best to post here or on instagram when one of our stores has a colorway of ours to introduce.

Oh…almost forgot there is still time to join us for our themed color project the 12th year of the sock club for Sock Opera the Musical!

Knit on!!!

Snowpocaplyse and shipping updates!

Guess who?!
Yup it’s me. I am alive. Although I have to tell you, it really does not feel that way. I have been sick since right after Christmas with what started out as the current viral thing going around but morphed into a wicked case of bronchitis. I am still wheezing (asthma) and coughing and it feels like I will never stop. My whole family got hit with this nasty bugger.
I had all of these great plans with my girls who were home for the holidays and to also do some planning for the upcoming year and New Year clean-out. None of that happened. We took turns taking care of each other and watched our comfort shows Gilmore Girls, Will and Grace and Parks and Rec. and I knit when I could.
It certainly was not what I had planned but at least we got to be together!

IMG_0280

And then there was the weather. Do you know that we here in Blue Moon land have had snow on the ground since around December 14th. I know! Crazy-pants! And not a small amount of snow either.
After the last dump last week we had about 3 feet of it. Frozen Solid!! I will tell you my friends that is a whole lot of snow. The Pacific Northwest is not really equipped to deal with this kind of winter. We lost power for a few days and it took a 2 days and a big ol tractor to dig us out.
Because of this we are a bit behind schedule. Team Blue Moon could not get here for most of last week and I was too sick to work. Most of us got to work today and it looks like there is going to be a warming trend (fingers crossed) to melt some of this and clear the roads and packed snow and ice.
I am very sorry about the delay! Please know we are doing our very best to get you your yarn!

Thank you for your patience!
Stay safe and warm!

It’s a New Year coming our way!

A new year…
A new day….
A new knit …

img_0482

Endings and beginnings! I think that most of us have our own little rituals that mark the end of the passing year and the ushering in of the new one!
I have a whole bunch of Irish coursing through my veins so I most definitely have a few of my own. Little things that make me feel like I have tidied up all the loose ends and works-in-progress for the year. I either work in those pesky loose ends or do some much needed ripping out. Like my gran, Winnie, I sweep out the last remnants of the ending year and whatever it brought my way in order to make room for the hope and dreams of the year to come. I light a few candles pour myself a glass of bubbly and dream and plan.
I don’t know about you but I am going to raise a glass to all of us for making it through 2016! Quite the year!

Before I go on about sock club sign-ups and such, I want to take a moment say a heart felt THANK YOU!! for being a ray of sunshine in our little Blue Moon world. You are the best! We love our knitters, spinners, weavers, crocheters and feel honored to serve you in bright living color and warm woolly goodness! It is truly a pleasure that we are grateful for!
We wish you so much joy, peace, love and knitting in 2017.

Since our RSC sign-ups start the first week in January part of my New Year ritual for the past 12 years involves prepping for the upcoming Rockin’ Sock Club year and also watching as my lovely Notorious bunch of knitters return for another year of knit fun. What better way to keep track of time than a stitch at a time that gives us wonderful socks.

We will have the magic sing-up button live on Monday the 2nd of January. We have some pretty exciting plans for the year with our super talented designers and design team. I think you’ll be thrilled. I know I am pretty flipping excited.
Sock Opera the Musical!
Yup…pretty excited!

Excitement for the coming year for Blue Moon is pretty high! We have so many wonderful KAL’s lined up for the year with seriously fun themes and talented designers. Our first KAL of the year is with our buddy Karen Alfke and is going to be a year long knit-a-long!! I know!

We have a few new bases coming in that I can barely wait to share with you. Oh my goodness!! You are going to LOVE these yarns!

We will be at Vogue Knitting LIVE in New York at the Feather Your Nest booth with lots and lots of yarn, some of which are out fabulous new bases which you are going to want to meet in person for a woolly squeeze! I made some special New York colorways that I am pretty tickled with. There will also be quite a few lovely knits design samples. Our buddy Shannon Squire will be helping Terri out in the booth and will have a whole bunch of her Blue Moon designs with her.
If you are Vogue do drop by and say hi to Terri and Shannon and peruse the goodies they have. There is a limited number of the New York colorway Specials so you might want to plan to stop by early so you don’t miss out!

One of the designs I am really excited to be sharing with you is the stunning cardigan, Tualatin by Emma Welford

There is a whole lot to love about this design. The cables…oh the cables and the detail on the back. I am smitten!!!
You will be able to see this beauty and in person at Vogue and Emma has been generous enough to give us a pattern discount!
Emma used our Targhee Worsted (Dakota) for her stunning design!!

Speaking of stunning we will also have this beauty on display by Carol Feller!

15660855762_380ddea883_z

Landscape Waves is one of my all time favorite sweaters!!

A whole lot of knit goodness and really that is just the beginning which is appropriate since it is just the beginning of the New Year!

Goodbye 2016!! I know you taught us a whole lot. I know I have learned a lot this year. There has been a whole lot of loss this year. As someone who has experienced great loss I will say that I will greatly miss those dear souls and I will carry them in my heart.

Peace and love to us all!!
xoxo

Peace, love, and knitting!

Love is the bridge between you and everything! rumi

There’s quite a few hours left to finish those last few rows, cast-off and work in those loose ends of your holiday knits parade. There’s also enough time cast-on and finish something smallish. Hope does spring eternal, especially knitting hopes!
I am actually casting on today for 2 gifts but I do not have to have them done until the end of next week so…yay!!!
My family celebrates Solstice and Christmas, one of my favorite times of the year.I love the peaceful aura that permeates this season. All the magical twinkling lights especially at night in the snow. I love the traditions and just having time with my family and friends.
This year has been very very different both for me and my whole family. I feel this is in part due to the loss of my mother right before Halloween. Loosing your mother is a big loss that takes a whole lot of time to get your head and heart around. A whole lot of my love of this holiday and the traditions that I have passed on to my family come from my mother.
I was thinking yesterday as I looked at the tree still all twined up on the front porch and the empty cookie tins and holiday decor that I was just way to busy with Blue Moon this year to get my act together. All the snow did not help matters either and then last night as I was doing some (almost last minute) shopping it hit me. It hit me in the wine aisle at Zupans, as I considered the wine to buy for our Christmas Eve mulled wine, that it was not that I was too busy or otherwise occupied with the everyday business of life. Nope, it’s just plain old grief that has held me back from my usual joyous celebration of this season.
So…today after I finish wishing you lovely knitters a lovely holiday. I am going to finish my coffee and honor my mom, who would so not be down with this lack of mine. No way, nothing kept Joan Hook from her holiday celebrationing. I am going to put on the my favorite holiday music and start some cookies baking. I gonna put up the Christmas Tree and spend three whole days not working and hanging out with my four favorite people on the planet! Oh…and I am going to knit and spin a little too. I have 2 projects patiently waiting for my attention.
I was going to tell you all about Vogue Knitting LIVE and how we have sent a whole lot of yarn to Feather Your Nest for their booth and about 2017 Sock club sign-ups which start on the 2nd of January and Emma’s stunning sweater but I think we will save that for next week.
I wish you all so very much love, light and hope! Love each other! Thank you for being such a richly textured and colorful part of my life! I feel truly blessed by each and everyone of you!
A few special notes of love to:
The Vancouver HandSpinners for knitting the yarn we donated to them for the homeless here in the Pacific Northwest and for the brave souls at Standing Rock.
Also, to all of you knitters who have purchased yarn for the Pussy Hat Project. Because of you Blue Moon is able to send a nice donation to the ACLU thanks to you!!
Sheri Berger of the Loopy Ewe, thank you for letting us donate yarn and be a part of your lovely holiday giving project.
I send to all of you for whom this season might not be the most wonderful a big hug.

And lastly…chickens in the snow! Just cause.

xoxoxo

Baby it’s cold outside…

img_0084

It’s a snow day here at Blue Moon which basically means I am here working alone which is all kinds of peaceful. I am getting so much done!
Don’t get me wrong I love team Blue Moon, they are the best. It’ just that sometimes having quiet gives one space for colorful new thoughts and ideas!

Like…
V is for Vagenda!!!
img_3865

Super hot electric pinks!

Have you heard about the PussyHat Project
The Pussyhat Project aims to provide the people of the Women’s March on Washington D.C. a means to make a unique collective visual statement which will help activists be better seen and heard.
And to also provide those of us who cannot physically be on the National Mall a way to represent ourselves and support women’s rights and those we love.

As much as I would like to be there I can’t. However, my daughter and a whole bunch of friends and family will be there and so I am knitting them hats! I will most definitely be there in spirit.

We already have quite a few appropriate pinks:
Hot Flash
Psychobarbie
Rosebud
China Rose
Rosetta
Tit for Tat
Help Us Rhonda
Rose Quartz
Fuchsia Rose
and now…
V is for Vagenda!

Thanks to Kat Coyle and The Little Knittery for putting this all together! Check out their web page, mission statement and blog. The pattern they have supplied is super cute and an easy and quick knit. There is a place to send hats if you want to knit one (or two) show support and be involved.
We at Blue Moon are donating 20% of our December sales to the ACLU.

Okay…my buddy Karen just showed up for weekend knit shenanigans. Yay!!! And speaking of Karen, did you read her blog post this week (sweater dreams) on knitting for ourselves.

This month starts our next 3 spinning adventures. Long Wools!! If you want to join in the fun there is still plenty of room and time. The first shipment leaves at the end of December.
Rockin’ Sock Club is up for Gift Certificate purchases for the holidays. The gift that keeps on giving all year long!

Okay my lovely wonderful knitterly friends.
Have a great weekend.
Stay warm and safe.

GGG! Gratitude and Gilmore Girls.

FullSizeRender“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action. Nothing that is done for you is a matter of course. Everything originates in a will for the good, which is directed at you. Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude.” Albert Schweitzer

One of the biggest gifts that cancer has given me is the act of working on being grateful everyday. I am a work in progress which is why I say I work on it everyday. Some days it is easier to do than others. The days and times that it is the hardest are the places I learn the most and experience the deepest peace, love and happiness.

When we feel it is the darkest is the time where we need to be as grateful for every single moment. In my experience gratitude lights up the darkness!

I have a whole lot to be grateful for in my life. One of those things is that I get to do what I love and to serve fiber and color lovers like yourselves which is a great gift!!

THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!! THANK YOU!!!!


You are the best and I love being a part of your lives and having you be part of mine!

I am so very, very grateful!!!

I know that a whole lot of us are seriously excited for the Netflix Gilmore Girls reunion shows this weekend! I really am. I have lost count of how many times I have watched this lovely small town quirky show with my girls. It is our feel good go to show. How many of us would love to live in Stars Hollow??
Of course I had to come up with a few colorways to commemorate this event. There are so many colorway possibilities. I chose 3 of my favorite aspects of the show.

Starting from the left of the photo and working to the right we have: Luke’s, Stars Hollow and ” I Smell SNOW!!

screen-shot-2016-11-25-at-10-29-38-am

We have 15 sets of this lovely stitch markers from ~ A needle Runs Through It ~ that we are going to give away this weekend.
We are going to draw 15 knitters from all who order this weekend starting today (Friday) at noon and going until Monday at noon both Pacific time.
What we would LOVE for you to do is in the notes section of your order tell us who your favorite character is. You can also tell us why but you don’t have to. We will randomly choose from those orders and send the stitch markers out when your order is ready!

Also, if a dyer was going to make more Gilmore Girl colorways what would you like to see? I would love it if you put your suggestions in the comments section of this post. Please be as descriptive as possible. It can be a character or a place or a moment. Anything Gilmore Girls!

Okay I have to go help Maggie finish dyeing. It is just the two of us today.

Before I go I would like to point out the blog post before this one by our friend Karen Alfke. She will be posting about once a week about knit goodness that she has cooked up or found on the interwebs with our yarns.
Thank you Karen for being our knitter in the field!!

I am going to dye some Sookie in ” I Smell SNOW!! And knit a special Stars Hollow super duper cozy cowl!!

What cowls are you knitting???

screen-shot-2016-11-25-at-9-39-05-am

Cowls Gone Wild!!

Our new colorways are live as promised!
There are fifteen of them. I know!

Here they are in all their glory. I hope you enjoy knitting with them as much as I do creating them! I enjoy creating them quite a bit!

Our lovely friend Karen Alfke has been doing some Cowl knitting as part of our Holiday Cowlathon.
Look…
p1010528

Our Targhee Bulky in our colorway, In the Navy. Pattern: Blue Plaid by Alicia Plummer

US9/5.5mm needles, with US8/5mm for ribbed edgings

Karen’s knit-notes: Loved the soft ‘sproing’ of the Targhee Bulky for this one! Targhee holds the stitch definition so nicely – the ridges of garter really stand out. This generous cowl can be worn draped open to make a dramatic statement over a coat, or doubled up around the neck for cozy warmth. A super-fun knit: the 12 rounds of just knits and purls keep your interest while you’re knitting. And the finished piece would make a great gift for a worthy recipient.

Next…
p1010523

Vineyard Cowl by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas
Knit in our super yummy Crackpaca in the colorway Big Brain Blue

Karen’s knit-notes: This is just about the coziest cowl I’ve ever knitted – I don’t want to take it off, even indoors! It’s a great way to get a taste of Crackpaca. And the stitch pattern is wicked fun – a 4-round repeat that you just won’t want to put down.

It looks like little mock cables, but it’s all done with increases & decreases and lifting stitches over, so no need for a cable needle! At around 200 yards per cowl, so you could knit several for gifts. I’ve known knitters who have made multiples already this Fall (they’re ahead of the game for the holidays for sure!)

Starting today and going until next Friday we are offering out Targhee Bulky and Crackpaca at a 10% off the regular price discount.
The discount code is: cowlsgonewild2
There will be a discount code box on your order from when you go to check out!

If you missed the details of our Holiday Cowlathon here they are from my last blog post.
Cowls are wonderful winter wardrobe enhancers and warmers! As knitter’s they are usually a pretty quick knit which makes them seriously great for holiday knitting and gift giving.
Add in with great patterns and the perfect yarn and color combination you have a recipe for joy.

We are going to make suggestions every week for cowl patterns we love with yarn suggestions we think would be wonderful combinations with said patterns. Of course will have some discounts and colorway ideas. Since we (me) always have colorway ideas!!

Really you can knit whatever pattern you like as long as it is a cowl knit in a Blue Moon yarn. We ask that after your cowl is knit that you post a picture of it on instagram and tag us @bluemoonfiberarts and the designer of the cowl. Also please use the following hashtags #holidaycowlathon #bluemoonfiberarts so we can all share in the fun.

Here are the cowlcentives:
Knit and instagram
1 cowl you receive a 5% discount code
2 cowls gets you a 10% discount coed
3 cowls gets you a 15% discount code
and 4 cowls gets you a 20% discount code

Discount codes will be sent out at the end of December and are good until April 1st.

Okay my dear, dear knitting friends, take care, be good to each other and have a good weekend.

Color and cowls!

I have been a little possessed by cowls lately! I blame our Single Silk Targhee and our Crackpaca which I feel is only fair since they are both the cozy kind of yarn you want to snuggle up into! So soft and cozy that you want them around your neck when those cold winter winds start to blow! At least I do. I am so in love with our Loophole Cowl that I wear the sample around the house on those mornings when there is still a bit of a chill in the air.

Maggie and I were chatting in the barn this week about holiday knitting and cowls and life. I was thinking we should have a Blue Moon Holiday Cowlathon! Right?!

Then Maggie and I looked at each other and both wondered out-loud, at the same time, what that would look like exactly.
Ideas like these do run rampant in the dye barn in the wee hours (6:00 am) of the morning. It’s later in the day when we are fully awake and caffeinated that we get down to the knitty gritty ~ we need a plan ~ aspect of our early morning musings.

So here’s the plan, as we have it so far. It might evolve a little more but this is a good beginning!

Cowls are wonderful winter wardrobe enhancers and warmers! As knitter’s they are usually a pretty quick knit which makes them seriously great for holiday knitting and gift giving.
Add in with great patterns and the perfect yarn and color combination you have a recipe for joy.

If you knit and instagram
1 cowl you receive a 5% discount code

Discount codes will be sent out at the end of December and are good until April 1st.

The yarns we have on discount right now are Featherlight and Silky BFL! (Price listed right now is the sale price)

Our cowl pattern suggestions for the week are:
Honey Cowl by Antonia Shankland

Textural Healing Cowl by Shannon Squire

Ghazal Cowl by Katherine Leek

There we go…a good beginning!

Have a lovely weekend!

Christmas colors at Blue Moon

The sun (yay!!) is peaking through the trees this morning which it has not done here in about a week so I am feeling the Friday love this morning!!

We have done our colorway change and put up a whole bunch of our holiday colorways. I really love this aspect of a colorway change. Making new colorways is all kinds of fun but I also really enjoy revisiting older ones or ones we offer only once a year which is the case with holiday ones.

img_0392
A little Rudolph’s Revenge!

img_9938
…and one of my favorites Ginger’s Gnome Home!

If there is a holiday colorway you would like to see return that is not on the website right now please do let us know!!

I can not wait to dye a some of these up in our new yarn bases like Crackpaca and Super Sparkle. Oh…and Single Silk Targhee!!

Christmas cowls!!! If I had the time I would so knit all of my loved ones a cowl in either our Single Silk Targhee or Crackpaca.

Our KALS start really soon and we have been busting out the Single Silk Targhee and Spell Shawl Kits. We have shipped out the bulk of these orders and working on the rest which will ship out today and on Monday!

I have thinking it would be fun to play a few games/contests and I have really been wanting to do an instagram contest.
We were thinking it might fun for us to post a picture a week of an older colorway and have you guys guess what it is.

The first person to guess and respond on our instagram feed where the picture is, gets a skein of that colorway in Socks that Rock Lightweight!

Please use the following hashtags: #bluemoonfiberarts #whatsthatcolorway

We will start this contest on Monday. I will post the first picture then. Our instagram feed is

Okay I have such a seriously full day today I do not know How I am going to squeeze it in.

I am working on new holiday colorways. So if there is something you’d like s to see us do. Write a description in the comments section of this post please and I will do mt very best!

Have the loveliest of weekends my friends!
