creative activism #titsoutcollective

As I have said many, many times, one of my favorite things about my job is the community that surrounds the fiber industry, especially knitting, but truly the whole big ball of yarny folks!

I have been blessed enough to have experienced both the giving and receiving end of our creatively diverse and magnanimous group of fiber-obsessed humans. I’ve been a part of raising loads of money for Doctors Without Borders and organizing fun events where we broke a world record and just had a grand sock knitting good time. I watched over 2,000 of you re-sign up for our sock club when the merchant service company returned your money because they thought we were running a sock knitting scam. All of which happened because of the one-stitch-at-a-time tight-knit community that we are!! It’s a truly beautiful thing!

So…when Countess Ablaze put out her call to action last week (I think it was last week. It’s all been a bit of a blur), I was thrilled to join ranks and add in my color voice to the over 250 dyers, designers and makers who are creating and donating and just being the colorful community we are. Also, how could I not be a part of something as wonderful as a #titsoutcollective ?

If you do not know the whole story of behind “If I want Exposure, I’ll Get My Tits Out” and “Shit Tea and Tray Bake” then you can read about it all on her blog. Basically, she created these two colors in response to misogyny and marginalization. And she donated a percentage of the sales to help and empower women.

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

Recently it cane to her attention that one of our very own had taken liberties which her colorway. In response to this, Countess has asked all of us to create our very own version of  “If I want Exposure, I’ll Get My Tits Out” using the colors she used but in our own style with our own creative spin on it.  We are all launching at the same time and donating to a charity of our choice.

I am a huge fan of the Countess’ whole ‘making lemonade out of lemons and then feeding the masses’ approach to these challenges! Taking the high road is not often the easiest path, but it is the most beneficial.  Also, at this point in time in our society, bringing people together in any way is a good thing!

A great big round of knitterly applause to Countess Ablaze for turning this whole copying thing right around with such a positive spin and outcome!!

So… my colorway take on all of this is: “If I Want Exposure, I’ll Get My Tits Out ” is: “You’ve Been BREASTED!”

IMG_1760

I made it big, bold and bright (as I like to do)! I wanted as saturated and bright as I could get without losing any of the colors! I love the orange in this!

We are offering our “You’ve Been Breasted” colorway in the following bases (All three bases of Sock that Rock, Super Sparkle, Featherlight, Plushy and Cloud 9) for the month of July (starting Sunday morning July 1st) and we are donating $5.00 per skein to RAICES  to help reunite children with their families. There’s a slight chance we might bring this colorway back for Breast Cancer Awareness month and donate then too but honestly I just don’t know.

I seriously LOVE this colorway (that orange and hot pink)!!! I think we are going to knit a pair of titties with tassels for the Countess and send them off to her.

Okay, I have to sign off and go pick up Toni from the airport and start packing the car for Black Sheep!!  Yay!! So excited! Can’t wait to see you all.

Remember, Sock Club members, your discount changes on the 15th of July!

There is still room in the School of Yarn!!

Have a great weekend!

Happy Summer!!!

Summer Solstice was this week so it is officially summer which is great since it was in the 90’s here. So…

I feel like we have all kinds of fun planned this summer so I am just going to tell you all about it in this post in an attempt to get my head around it all.

As we have done the past few summers we will be running weekly specials so do keep an eye out for the newsletters because they will have that information in them.

Starting today Yaksi Fingering and La Luna Fingering are 15% off until June 31st.  The coupon code you need for that is: birmingham18

Why have we chose those 2 yarns to put on special??

A stunningly diverse cowl!! Brioche creates such a stunning fabric and a cozy one too. I am smitten with Nona’s design and will probably knit a solid one in Yaksi  and a 2 color in La Luna. Oh my goodness what colors would you choose? Doesn’t this look like a fun knit?!

Also it would fit right into the other summer fun we have planned that actually starts today!!!

Yes!!! BINGO! Single Skein Bingo.

All the single skeins! All the single skeins!

We wanted a Summer knit-a-long that was a little different. A KAL that had some challenges and gave us a little project freedom but also had continuity. And of course it needs to be fun!! I think we hit all those markers! We will run specials all summer to coincide with our Bingo fun. Nona’s cowl would qualify for brioche, and if brioche is a new skill for you that one, if Nona i a new designer to you then there’s that one and the the high contrast one also! So much fun!!! And the prizes aren’t to shabby either! So check it out!!!

Click on this link for all of the details!   BMFA Single Skein Bingo

And…if you purchase yarn for this project during the next 5 days we are donating 10% of ALL sales to RAICES  (The Refugee & Immigration Center for Education & Legal Services)  

It might not seem like a lot but I am a firm believer in ever little bit helps! Whatever little bit we can do to help reunite these families.  Thank you!

Maggie also has a Stripe FLASH KAL going if you are into stripes and honestly who is not? Anything with stripes for heat to toe!!

So very much and quite honestly that is not all of it!  Blue Moon will be represented at Stitches Midwest. The ever delightful Ron and Theresa Miskin of The Buffalo Wool Company will have a whole bunch or our yarns!! Yay!

Okay I am going to sign off now so I can feed and walk the dog and prep for dye class tomorrow!

I’ll still have openings if you’d like to have a colorful good time and learn to dye yarn and work with color!

Have a lovely weekend!!

Rare Gems!!

IMG_1664

Rare Gems!!!

You know I can’t remember the last time we offered Rare Gems on the website.  So here we are with a little over 100 of them so if you want them I recommend ordering them sooner than later.

So…I have been playing with some neon colors and we will be adding them real soon. We’ve already put a few up, Peepers and Coral Bells to name a couple!

So one of the wonderful things about my job as dyer of fibers is seeing all of the colorways on the different bases. So when you order a colorway on one of our bases we have not seen it on it’s a bit like a birthday present. One of you brave and creative souls ordered out new neon Coral Bells on SilkMo. And OMG we all lost it over this. Maggie was hooked and so we dyed some for her to design something crazy fun with!

Look!!!!

IMG_1678

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Crazy right?!!  I am not a Coral fan but this? Holy Moly.  And seriously this picture does not do it justice. So very bright, like blindingly so.

I can’t wait to see what Maggie comes up with. I think we are going to put it with a fingering weight grey/green we are working on for Halloween!!

Our SilkMo is so wonderful. It’s soft and not itchy and is such a steal and 32.00 for almost 1600 yards. Crazy right?!!!

I’m gonna dye some in Peepers and see what I can come up with. Maybe we need a SilkMo design contest. Would you be game?

Okay so there are 2 wonderful MKALS that are coming up soonish both of which call for 3 skein color combo’s so of course we have come up with a few of our own! Thanks to those of you who requested we do this!

Boo Knits Dream Scape

and

Ysolda’s Gloamin-tide

You can order these by colorway in any of our fingering-weight bases. I recommend Featherlight and Soft Rock and Socks that Rock Lightweight.

Another KAL that seems to have grabbed our attention is Marie Greene’s Beekeeper Cardigan 4 day knit a sweater challenge

It’s super pretty. If you have yet to join this challenge and are looking for yarn may I recommend  our Silky Victoria and CAKE DK!!

Our lovey LYS’s  Eat Sleep Knit and Twisted Yarn Shop are both pretty well stock in these bases with lovely colors!! I am so excited to watch this challenge play out. A sweater in 4 days… .

Keep in mind that we still have both the Tour de Sock and Tour de Fleece going on!

Like I said last week… ALL the KALS!   Which have yo signed up for?!

On Monday we will be up to date with dyeing and shipping so order away and we will do our very best to get you your yarn for a timely cast-on!!!

There is still room and time to sing up for School of Yarn and learn all about the what and why of the yarns you are using!!!

Wow!!!

That is so very much knitting and I am kind of exhausted just talking about it.

Okay me dear, dear knitting friends have a lovely weekend!!

Also with all of the yarn stores and companies closing please do remember how important it is to support those stores and companies you love and depend on. we really are nothing without you!!

xoxo

PS: I almost forgot. Actually I did forget. Stitchin’ Post has the whole Marmalade Dreams color series in stock in soft rock!!!

Check it out!

Post vacation musings

I took 7 whole days in a row off!! I know…. craziness!! It was so wonderful. I have been trying to take more time off and get away and do things I love to do that feed my heart and soul and my creativity. What better excuse than to take some time then a birthday! It was my 61st birthday on last Tuesday. So I spent with two of my best friends where they live, which just happens to be one of my favorite places on the planet. It was all kinds of loveliness. IMG_1448

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The weather was beautiful all sunny but not too warm which lead to lots of beach walks which are my favorite kind of walking. It was a full moon on my birthday so that meant the tides were super low. Low tide means lots of crazy cool tide pool action and seaweed beds and rocks and otters and herons and … . To say it is my happy place is an understatement. I feel the most me when I am near the ocean. I am rejuvenated ~ inspired ~ uplifted ~ relaxed ~ connected andjust plain ol’ happy!

IMG_1435

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Birthday full moon!!

I might have a tiny little sea weed obsession.

I did say obsession!!

I am so fascinated by all the colors and textures and what is living in those beds. The colors in sea weed are some of my favorites with so much depth and richness. I also love those dry kind of dead hues. T And… those textures and patterns are crazy, so varied. Nature is the best lesson in diversity  that we have. What do you see in those textures? I see lace and cables and bobbles and brioche and fringes and on and on. One of my creative dreams is to design a series of colors and then the patterns to go with them. Might be the time to jump on this one! Look at all of this color and texture. Mother Nature is a flipping genius!

And while I was feeling so inspired look what I did.

I actually knit.

La Luna DK and Lace in dye boo-boo’s) which will be my cowl for next winter.

I cast-on not one but two projects.  Scandalous!! I can’t tell you the last time that happened. I am a serious monogamous knitter it is one at a time for me or I feel overwhelmed and pressured and I have enough of that in my life. I do not need it from my knitting.

Socks that Rock in the colorway I made for my birthday ~ “It’s my party and I’ll dye if I want to!” ~ I am making my self a pair of socks!

Afternoons on the deck sipping refreshing beverages, knitting, chatting and having just too much fun! Now I just have to find a way to keep that energy going while I am at home and  working. I get so bogged down in the everyday aspect of making a small business run that at the end of the day I am done. I often grab something to eat while answering emails with my favorite cooking shows are playing in the background and I often fall asleep on the couch as I am typing.

So this year I am working on more balance in my life.  How do you achieve  balance in your life? I feel like this is something Oprah knows! lol

Karen and I also sewed as we do when we are together. I am a slow mover on this one. Mostly fear of screwing it all up!!

IMG_1439

IMG_1450

Karen is seriously a talented sewist and as you can see seriously committed to her craft! We made dresses!

So … an amazing birthday, good times with dear friends and a good reboot!!

I am back and getting into the swing of things.

THANK YOU ALL for all of the lovely birthday wishes!! You made my heart sing! I am so lucky to be part of such a community!

We are in the process of shipping May sock club! I think this one is going to be one of my favorites. Pattern pages are up. Dyer’s Notes will be there on Monday. The rest of the packages ship out on Monday also!

If you are planning on joining us in the School of Yarn 3rd semester please join soon as we have to order all of the goodies!

I am putting up new Dye Camp classes today . Is there anything you would like me to teach?!! I would like to change things up a bit and also would like to hear from you as to what you would like.

Oh and don’t forget to check out the Tour de Sock and Tour de Fleece action!

IMG_6163

So much knit and spinning fun with prizes, discounts, and crafting!!

IMG_6935

Our Tour de Sock 2018 colorway!  Registration for Tour de Sock started yesterday so now’s the time!! Knit socks and support a worthy cause all at the same time!

Okay my friends I need to move on to my next task!

Have a great weekend!!

Happy knitting!

Happy Mother’s Day

I am heading out soon with yarn, knit samples and a yarn tasting on my way to Stash in Corvalis for a meet and greet and to chat with all the lovely knitters about yarn, color, knitting and supporting our local yarn shops.

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day which can be hard for some of us. I lost my mom a few years ago which honestly was harder than I thought it would. My mom and I had a difficult relationship. Still…she’s my mom which is a powerful thing.

On this day I celebrate the essence of mothering in all of us. I feel the void and grief because my own mother has donned her wings. I send out compassion and love to all of my friends and loved ones who have also lost their mothers which makes this day so very hard. I send so much love and peace to all of us displaced and motherless children, maybe we can mother each other a little bit more on this day!

 

I also bask in the light and love of the four glorious souls ( Narayan, Rabia, Sophie and Candace) that call me mom. There is nothing that I have loved more in my life than being their mom.  (Oh geez… I made my self cry.)

Have a great weekend!

Color dreams do come true!!

Introducing Marmalade Dreams!! Valor Wells, stunning Spring Summer Collection

and also… the collaboration between her and Blue Moon to introduce yarns that have been dyed to match her palette and pattern design!!!!

 

Screen Shot 2018-05-04 at 10.10.08 AM

So… I have been dreaming for awhile (years) of creating color schemes based of fabric designer launches. There are so many fabric designers whose work I love and respect. I have always thought that dyeing yarn to within the palette and pattern scheme would be a great cross platform design opportunity for us knitters, crocheters, weavers, quilters and sewists.  There just seemed to me to be such a rich and varied canvas to work within. I mentioned this idea of mine in February of this year to the oh so talented Valori Wells ( such a creative and talented designer) in Sisters Oregon ( yes, THAT Valori Wells!!! )

 

 

Anyway she was as over the moon about this concept as I was and it was something she had also dreamed of.

Creative dreamers do find each other!

Anyway this Spring and this lovely collection mark her 40th collection!! I know…amazing! I am thrilled to be working with Valori on this project. It is still a work- in -progress. We are swatching and adjusting color, naming them and all the good things!  Valori will have it for sale at her store Stitchin’ Post in Sisters Oregon. If you are one of my yarns stores you can purchase these and we will most likely also be selling it! We will be at Quilt Market in May here in Portland with it! Yay!!!!

Okay stay tuned, there will be so very much more!

I need to post this an go feed the dog or she is going to burst something and then I am going to have to clean it up.

Valori I can’t thank you enough for this opportunity to work with you!

Truly a dream come true!!

Also I feel like I have made a lifelong friend which I so cherish!

I am a HUGE Star Wars fan, nerd, geek, freak…whatever you want to call it. So this is one of my days! And add in the May release of the new movie that looks to be packed with all kinds of wonder. I’m so excited. Solo!!!! Seriously!!!  Okay so with all of this love it’s quite amazing that I do not have one Star Wars colorway, not a one my friends. What is with that. I think my love is so huge I’m a little afraid of not doing it justice and letting my Star War heroes down… maybe? I going with that, it feels right.  Obviously this needs to be rectified and equally as obvious is that I’m going to need some help. So my knitterly  friends who are maybe as Star War obsessed ( you know you are) as I am ~ let’s do this.

Please in the comments section here share with me one of your fav Star Wars movies, moments, heroes, villans….anything goes. I will need a description that shares what speaks to you so I can capture that in color with yarn. I would like to release these before the movie comes out so… we do not have a whole lot of time. ( I do not have a whole lot of time.) Actually…I just remembered I have done a Vader colorway! We will not discuss that this is the only one I have done. It says nothing about me at all! ( lol) It was for Eat Sleep Knit.  Anyway… .

Please share. If I pick yours to create you will get a skein of what we come up with together!! Yay!! I have a full dye staff now so this will happen!!! If you do not want to comment you can send me an email at info@bluemoonfiberarts.com. Please title it Star Wars in the subject line of the email. Thanks for your creative input! I so appreciate it! I do love creating color together. If we could get these in by Wednesday of htis coming week that would be all kinds of awesome!

Happy Birthday ladies!!! All love!!

Bye Bye April ….

Happy Saturday!! I was so glad to see this weekend. It was a full and seriously productive week and I am a wee bit tired!

Ron and Theresa have all the yarn we dyed for Maryland Sheep and Wool and will be heading that way on Monday!

We’ve sent some serious color and fiber goodness for you! All of our new colors in Socks that Rock Medium-weight and our new and exciting new base Soft Rock!! Soft Rock is a 2 ply light fingering weight using the same base that we make our Sock that Rock yarns out of. We wanted a lighter yarn with same STR fiber goodness for our shawls, cowls, hats, wraps and such. It has that elasticity that we love in our Socks that Rock with a lighter hand! I’m in love. This is our first batch, so… it is not huge. Because of this  we have a limited number of skeins so we’ve chosen carefully how we are introducing it to the knit world! Since Maryland Sheep and Wool was one of the first places we introduced Socks that Rock I thought what better place have our Soft Rock make it’s entry!

Well the sun just came out so I am going to go for a walk before the rain sets in. Have a great weekend my lovely knitting friends!

Oh and to all of you that supported your LYS last weekend thank you. It was great to see so many of you at Twisted!

 

Support Your Local Yarn Store!!

Support Your Local Yarn Store!!

Please join us on Saturday April 21 at Twisted for all kinds of fiber goodness!  Jared Flood and I will both be there with yarn chats about sustainability, commuKnitty and why our local yarns stores are so crucial to us all!

It all starts around 1:30 .

As you can see we have a very special colorway to honor and celebrate our LYS’s!

We are also soft launching a new yarn base ~ Soft Rock!

Soft Rock is a  2 ply light fingering weight  version of our beloved Socks that Rock.                                             I wanted a yarn that was as wonderful but a little lighter with a little less of a twist for shawls and such. A bit of a Socks that Rock but not for socks. I love Soft Rock a whole lot and I think you will too. We will also be introducing it at Maryland Sheep and Wool so if you are there be sure to grab a skein!

New colors… and a few Fadients!

New colors are up!!!

And…not even all of them are yet.  I’ve got a few more that we will add in the next few weeks here and there.  I’m in one of those super inspired and creative places where it’s just pouring our of me. I have a few series I am working on, a collaboration with a fabric designer, special colors for special events and a few new techniques I am playing with.  I am having a blast!!

Okay so here are the new ones. They are mostly speckled or watercolor droplet type colorways. I am pretty smitten with a few of these but the ones that are making me so happy I can barely contain myself are additions to the Heckley Speckley theme!! I know!!!!!!!! So exciting.

I love Heckley Speckley as deep and obsessively as I do Pond Scum. It does tend towards the scummier side of color which is my happy place. So I decided to play more in this speckley scummy end of color. Also I get so very many requests for fades/gradients using my beloved scummy friend I decided what the heckley (lol)  I’ll just make one. So I did!!

IMG_0455

 

 

 

 

 

From the dark end to the lighter end we have:  Smoke on the Water ~ Scumberry Pie ~ Heckle & Jeckle Heckley Speckley and Heckle the Jekyll!

And I could not love it more!!! Seriously possessed! I want to knit all the faded patterns out there in this one. What I think I will do though is knit Joji’s new KAL Fading Point. It’s big which means I can wrap myself up all cozy in Heckley Speckley scummy goodness.

I have also put together a few more fade groupings and am working a couple more. If you you have any fade withes let me know. We are calling them FADIENTS!

IMG_0465

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dark to light we have: Ultra-Violet ~ Romancing the Stone ~ Love Shack ~ Dragonfruit Loops and Artic Puffin

IMG_0460

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smoke on the Water ~ Hoodoo Voodoo ~ Mardi Gras ~ I Made it to 60 Bitches and Elixir of Love

IMG_0504 (1)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Green Wing ~ Sweet Dreams ~ Kikki’s Aurora ~ Oola Pikka  and Dream Walker

I also really like this one with Smoke on the Water as the darkest colorway!

You can order these groupings in any base you want for whatever fading you are planning on knitting by colorway. We are planning at some point in the near future to offer them as actual Fadient Kits but are still working on the specifics and the tech end for the website.

So next Saturday is  Support Your Local Yarn Store Day!

Screen Shot 2018-04-13 at 3.51.52 PM

 

 

 

I will be at Twisted most of the day! I will bring a special colorway!

Emily will have door prizes. Both Emily will be giving talks about our knit community.  I sharing stories of my experience of our close-knit community and the important role my LYS  played in my life! Come share your stories with us!! Stay tuned for time!!
