All the fun things!!

I have so many exciting things to share with you I am not quite sure where to start.

I know how about here?!









We’re going to Stitches West!  We’ve decided we miss seeing all of you and the fun one can have at shows so we’ve decided to add in few throughout the year and we are starting with our dear friends at Stitches!! I am so excited to be a sponsor and the work with Benjamin and his wonderful team again. Thank you Ben for welcoming us back into the Stitches family! We are in the process of planning what to bring with us so if there is something you would like to see please do let us know.  we have three booths to fill. You can leave a note in the comments here or send us an email

Recognize this? It’s our Fair Isling on Blue Moon pattern booklet. We are finally sending it off to our friends at Brown Printing here in Portland for a reprint. We are also formatting it for PDF downloads. You all have been asking for awhile and we happy to be in a place where we can make this happen.

We’ve put it up for PRESALE.  I expect it all to be ready in 3 to 4 weeks. We are offering two purchasing options.  The printed booklet and PDF and then just the PDF. It’ll will be nice to be able to offer these fun patterns again! Thank you for your continued interest.

Roll on… roll on … for the Sock Knitting Magical Mystery Tour!

Can you believe it? It’s our 13th year of rockin’ the sock knitting. I can’t believe we’ve been doing this for 13 years. We have decided to celebrate with as super  a magical year we can imagine. We’ve made some changes that are new and are going to add back in some fun things we used to do as a community that I miss.

We are making it live for sale early next week!! As usual you can purchase gift certificates for the holidays, also  this year you can sign-up for 2018 in November before the holidays, instead of waiting until January.  See… shaking things up a bit! You can read all about the details on the Rockin’ Sock Club homepage and blog.

So many goings on! And…if all of this was not enough excitement I woke up to this midweek and was over the moon with joy!

Did you see? Joji designed a shawl for each of the  grocerygirls!  Evidently Tracie asked her to design one for Jodi and then Joji surprised Tracie with one of her own and in our yarn no less. Well one of the yarns is ours. Socks that Rock Lightweight in my fav Heckley Speckley.  As I told Joji both shawls are quite lovely and I bought both patterns so I could knit them both. I am so touched and honored that our yarn is part of this knit~friendship~ lovefest!  One of the things about about being a dyer that just never gets old is seeing what you do being used in such creative and loving ways. I love it when I encounter a knitter or someone who is loved by a knitter who is where something knit from my yarn. I feel part of the big knit circle of life!

If you check the header you will see more patterns pics and a few color pairings in case you have to add this to your knit queue.

Knit friends are by far the best!

We shipped out School of Yarn this week and emailed the PDF’s.  Please let me know if you did not get the PDF email.

We are going to do another color change soon so if there are colorways up that you want now is the time!

I hope everyone had a good week!

Have a lovely weekend.



All the single skeins….

All the single skeins…

Well not all of them,  just all the Single Silk Targhee single skeins!!










I so love our Single Silk Targhee  so I am pretty thrilled that the weather has changed to cooler so I can knit all the things in heavier weight and warmer yarns. If you have not knit with this yarn yet believe me you are missing a wonderful knit experience. As most of you know I have a bit of a love affair with the bouncy and elastic wool that is Targhee. Add in a little bit of Tussah Silk and BAM!!  Super singles!

One of the magical things that happens when we dye our SST ( Single Silk Targhee) is that the heat and water from our process brings back some of that lovely crimp that Targhee is know for. Wool magic!!!  Also the dye process felts those single a bit which makes it so our lovely singles will not pill which is something we all worry about with singles that are not superwash treated!

Our Single Silk Targhee skeins are pretty large so you can get a fair amount of knitting out of one! Cowls and scarves and hat and mitts and sweaters even!!

So…because of my love and the turn of season weather and holiday knitting!

On Special from this very moment in time until All Hallow’s Eve (code expires November 1st). 10% off plus… a free pdf copy of our pattern LOOPHOLE (we will email you your pdf )



Coupon Code is  SSTLOOPHOLE












Now for a few updates:

Sock club has finally shipped!! Thank you so very much for your patience!

We are just about caught up with web orders!! Which I will tell you is not small thing. In all of the years that I have run this business never have we been hit so hard by an illness. There were days when there 2 of us. Crazypants!!  I told team Blue Moon this week that we should record the barn cause all you hear is coughing and nose blowing and sneezing.
Thank you all for your well wished and understanding. You’re the best!!

My goals for next week is to get sock club 2018 announced!

We are also going to do a pre-sale for a reprint of our Fair Isling on Blue moon patter book so look for that!!

And hopefully some new colorways!

Oh and we will be shipping out School of Yarn this week.

The sun is out this weekend so I am going to take a nice long walk in the great fall color that the Pacific Northwest is giving us this year. So stunning.


inspiration monday: color consolation

The third weekend of October is come and gone — which means that some of us (snif snif) didn’t get a chance to walk the avenues at Rhinebeck, aka the Dutchess County Sheep and Wool Festival. (Which I recently had to describe to some non-knitters as: “Woodstock, for knitters. … but with more clothes.”)

Instead of wallowing in self-pity and consuming my body weight in Halloween candy, however, I’ve decided to console myself… with COLOR. Multi-color wraps, to be precise! Two delicious, calorie-free-yet-color-rich designs crossed my consciousness this last week, and I just want to soak up all the fantastic possible combinations!


photo @ Libby Jonson

First up is Electra by the ever-talented Libby Jonson of Truly Myrtle. Let’s face it — it was already going to be great with that grey-on-green combination, amiright? But lace + slip stitches + big rectangle of cooshy goodness has gotta win the project trifecta.

Three skeins, one color each of Featherlight will have you sighing with joy, even if you were knitting with your eyes closed! (Which you won’t be, because seriously – have you seen how Featherlight takes colors?) And after all the pleasure of knitting it, you’ll love draping its light, flowing fabric around you on a crisp, pale winter’s day.

Since I can’t get the original colorway out of my mind, I’d go for Winter Solstice + Deep Unrelenting Grey + Mossay for mine.

And as if that weren’t distracting enough, we’ve got another great textured wrap to tantalize you with — and this one lets you add in a FOURTH color! Meet Marya.

photo @ Ambah O’Brien

Oh, the possibilities! I’m seeing speckles … are you?

Best of all, the lovely Ambah has left us a little note on the pattern page: “You may like to use partial or mini skeins for colours 2, 3, and 4. You’ll need 3 mini skeins each containing 134 yd/123 m for each colour you replace in this way.” And lookie here: Tina and the crew are now dyeing Featherlight MINIs with a generous 150 yards each – so you can play, play, play!

Pick your favorite solid in a full skein of Featherlight for the MC (I’m digging her dark groove here, so I might dive in with Obsidian or Black Onyx)…


… and then go a little crazy with some speckles from the new batch of Fall colors Tina put up last week.

The trees are telling us loud and clear this time of year: color can console!


Seems like there’s all  kinds of change in the wind these days. A natural progression with the shifting of the seasons.

I love the one we are in right now from the hot and bright run in ocean at the beach summer kind of energy to the more let’s sit by the fire, knit and listen to the rain with the hot beverage of you choice.  My friend Gail and celebrate this time of the year since it is her absolute favorite .

Here in Blue Moon land we celebrate this time of year with a color change since is kind of what we do. So we have put up some of my favorite colorways in line with the season and quicker that we’d like approaching holidays.

I love going meandering the colorway database (yup there is a colorway database) when it’s time to pick new colorways. It’s a super colorful trip down memory lane. I am reminding of the why and when and how I made each colorway and who for or with. I pour myself a glass of wine, sit down with my trusty laptop and visit with my color friends.

Here they are:

Of course we will be adding brand new colors to this in the next few weeks!


Knitters all over the planet are headed to New York right now because ….New York Sheep and Wool, lovingly  referred to as, Rhinebeck.  I have never been to Rhinebeck. I know…it’s  a bit ridiculous. My yarn is always there thanks to my dear friend and yarnie extraordinaire Toni Neil of the Fold.


Toni has been traveling the country pulling her yarn-V doing  shows and events for what seems like forever.  I have been lucky enough that she has taken my yarn and fibers down all these exciting fiber trails with her.

I thank my lucky stars the day I called The Fold looking for these super special spindles made by Gabe that only Toni carried at the time. I bought two I think and still have them both! We became fast friends and have been so ever since.  I think we talked for like 30 minutes that first phone call.
Toni was one of the very first people to buy my roving and handspun which is what I did way…way…back then. That she believed in me and continues to do so has meant more to me than I have words to express.


This weekend will be Toni’s last Rhinebeck! I know… . As she has said it is time to hang out and knit and spin. we are both getting rockers for the front porch. we might have to get and extra for Gail and Kaci too or they will be super jealous.

So please if you are at Rhinebeck stop by and say hi and give her a big ol hug. Give her one for me too.

Thank you Toni for all you have done for me and Blue Moon on this journey of ours! Can’t wait for the next chapter.

Thank you to Bill and Nan for loving Toni as much as I do!!!



We are still recovering or at least trying to from whatever this bug  is that has laid us all out. I thought I would have a full team today and had three of them out so send healthy thoughts this way please!!

Also…get you flu shot!! We all wish we did.

Thank you so very much for all of your understanding and patience.


Have a great weekend!




Show season…










Here is our new colorway for Rhinebeck ( New York Sheep and Wool). I create a new colorway every year and have for almost as long as my dear, dear friend Toni ( The Fold) has been packing up her trailer with our yarns and making the trek from her lovely shop in Marengo, Illinois to upstate New York.

Along with our Rhinebeck 2017 colorway Toni has all kinds of goodies with her this year including my newest yarn obsession our ever plump and luscious Plushy!! 









… and a whole slew of our gradient kits!

Including our A Total Eclipse of the Sun Kit and a sample of Andea Mowry’s Find your Fade Shawl knit out of 2 of them.








And then there is our brand new kit Stitch PINK!








My hot pink color love song to all of the breast cancer warriors and the people who love them. We are donating 10% of sales to breast cancer research. Maggie and I are thinking of combining our Fade to Black kit with Stitch PINK for a magical kind of punkish grade!

You will also might find our “Don’t Rain on my Craft Parade” colorway if you get there early enough!

IMG_5882 (1)









If you heard the last Grocery Girls podcast you might remember Tracie defending one of our own whom had been treated unkindly.  We have all been there. I know I have. Anyway she ended with the statement, “Don’t rain on my craft parade!”  I love it!! Immediately messaged her to commiserate and tell her that I was so making her this colorway (she was thrilled) and here it is! And hey, … don’t flipping rain on our craft parade!


Another show that is happening this weekend is The Woodstock Fleece Festival

The lovely Terri O’Brien of Feather Your Nest will be there with a bunch of our yarn and some really lovely samples all knit up!



Like this stunning Veronika by Shannon Cook in our Targhee Worsted!

Terri also has Socks that Rock, Yaksi  and Crackpaca with so many wonderful project ideas and kits! Do stop by and say hi!

So it has been quite the few weeks here with super late yarn deliveries and then when the yarn got here team blue moon started dropping like flies with some awful plague. There were times when we were down to one dyer. It’s been crazy. We’re almost caught up too!

So frustrating!

Sock club will most definitely ship out next week. I think this might just be the latest we have ever been. I am so sorry and I really appreciate your understanding.

Oh… I almost forgot.

We added our second semester of School of Yarn!!!   Check it out!  Semester #2 is Merino Madness! We are so enjoying our little yarn school. I hope you are too!


Have a lovely weekend!!



Autumnal Shenanigans

Okay so I have maybe 30 minutes to write this blog post. If you know me at all you know just how funny that is. I told the barn girls if they interrupted me there would consequences. Not sure what…but hey, I’m creative. I’ll think of something.

How is it already the last weekend of September?? I swear September just flew by. I think it had something to do with  Carol’s Camira KAL and the massive amount of CAKE Worsted  we’ve been dyeing.
 Cast on starts on October 7th, so we are close to the finish line on our part and then it is your turn. Casting on is so exciting!  We should have everything shipped out of here on Monday. Which is no small thing since during this time Sara had her baby and is on maternity leave and Brandy our shipping clerk left and… . Life just likes to challenge us, doesn’t it?! I am so excited to see how these all turn out. I love a whole lot about Autumn from the leaves turning and all the pumpkin goodies but the knitting and the KAL we do with Carol really is a highlight of the season.


Because it is the last weekend in September and it is one of my favorite months, we are going to mark it by offering a discount code for a few of our bulkier yarns.

Sookie, Targhee Bulky, and Plushy: three lovely yarns for cozy knits.
(My current obsession, the plump and squeeze-worthy Plushy, makes the best hat I’ve ever worn! See?)
You’ll want to use Sookie for something all up around your neck – and Churchmouse Yarns & Teas’ Last Minute Muffler pattern does the trick!

Targhee Bulky is just the right bit of soft-yet-rugged for great winter accessories, like Shannon Squire’s He Said, She Said Hats and Mitts!

To celebrate the coming of Autumn and bulky-knitting season, take 15% off from today, September 29th, to October 1st! 
Now’s a good time to stock up for that last minute holiday gift knitting!
It seems I am always late to the party on these MKALS, like the current WestKnits Speckle and Pop!  I think I have a pretty good excuse with the Camira KAL so… not going to feel too bad.  Oh my goodness we should totally do a Blue Moon Late to the Party KAL. hehehe
Anyway…I could not resist some color play. So here are some trios that will work very, very well with our color story kits. Featherlight being the yarn of choice!

Go take a look at the Color story kits and match one with one of these lovelies. I have to say the Magical Mystery Tour trio is making my color obsessed soul sing!!

Okay I have like 4 minutes left….


By request I have added another dye class.

Our School of Yarn has shipped!! We are leaving signups for this semester open for a while, so if you want to join the fun you still can!

Anna Zilboorg joined!!!!

We are having a Halloween STITCH and WITCHbring your witchy selves and come knit with us for the afternoon on  Saturday October 7th, 3 to 5 – get the location and other details on our FB group!

Oh and check us out on the latest Grocery Girls podcast.
And…time is up. I am sure there are typos!!
What is your favorite thing about Autumn?!

inspiration monday: deep fall, big and small

Thank you, for splitting up all the delicious Fall kniting goodies into two batches! More to go around, and more time to savor the decision of what to knit?

pistachioBEAUTYIf you’re hankering after a sweater’s worth of somethin’-somethin’, you’ll likely have your head turned by Carol Feller’s scrumptious Pistachio Saffron, a drapey, A-line-and-therefore-super-wearable bit of stripey goodness.

(Side note: ALL THE GRELLOW!)

The subtle sheen of Silky Victoria would be amazing in this sweater. Pick a Shaded Solid for the MC: you’ll need 2 skeins for all but the largest size (for the largest size, you’ll have enough left over from your third skein for a great accessory!). You’ll need just one skein of the CC for the contrasting stripey bits – and here’s a fun place to play with either Multicolor Waves or Speckles! Those small stripes look amazingly complex when several colors are allowed to play through them.

Oooh! What about Deep Unrelenting Grey with Swamp Fog?


If your Fall knitting menu runs toward a tasty little nibble – more like an appetizer than a full meal, what about a delicious cowl? No better place to play with damn-fine, luxurious-around-your-neck fibers than a cowl. Nossir.

I had my head turned by Alicorn (I’m a sucker for a fun-yet-easy stitch pattern in a drapey cowl). Julie Crawford nailed it with the photography, too: see? Everyone’s so HAPPY when they’re wearing a soft, luxurious cowl! (Think of all your happy loved ones come the holidays if you get your gift-knitting game on now… right?)

I’m pretty passionate about YAKSI Fingering – the depth of color that the ‘yakky brown’ adds to all of Tina’s already-amazing colorways … it’s just to-die-for yummy (or should that be “to-dye-for”?).

One skein does the trick! So the hard part will be deciding what color. If I can get myself out of my OchroidBladderwrack – Chana Masala groove, I’ll likely fall in another one with the great bluey-greens like Big Brain Blue and Grimm Green.

And if your palate runs to a little silk with your wool, consider La Luna Laceweight. Such luster, such silky deliciousness – it would pool around the wearer’s neck like nobody’s business. Once again, one skein does the trick!

A little bird told me that it SNOWED in Colorado yesterday. Deep Fall, indeed! And winter is coming …

Better get knitting! Thanks, Knitty, for another plate full of goodies.

All the things and new colors!!

I have just spent the whole morning trying to write so the first thing we are going to do before I am interrupted again which I fully expect to be is look at the new colorways!

I love them!!!










… and more importantly Phoebe loves them. If Phoebe gives the her ~ I am gonna snuggle in this pile of woolly goodness ~ nap of approval I know I am on the right track! Oh Phoebe!

So this is our first foray into all that is autumnal color glory!  Stay tuned in the next few weeks for quite a bit more . There will be a Coven series!!! Stoked about this one and…I am venturing into some sporty colorways, specifically sport teams. My son and daughter-in-law have gotten me hooked so…touch down! So if you have a favorite sports team you’d like to see dyed into a skein of Blue Moon yarn let me know.


Today is the 15th of September which means if you are one of our lovey and notorious sock club members then this is the last day of the 20% off. It moves to 15% off. If you missed the newsletter we sent out about this and  the addition of 2nd time usage. The check the RSC blog!!

If you are one of our lovely RAV  Yarns that Rock  group members check out the group there’s some giveaways and a discount good for 10% off any of our yarns a couple of weeks.

  15% off   September 15 – Nov 1st

Good on:
Socks that Rock Lightweight
Socks that Rock Mediumweight
Super Sparkle

Superwash BFL Fingering
Here are a few of the details of the fun that is the SOCKtober KAL:
SOCKtober is a month long knit along. For the entire month of October all we ( The Carolina Fiber Girls) work on and talk about is socks! Each yarn we knit and pattern we use is from one of the event sponsors. This gives our listeners a chance to discover a yarn they have never heard of or had the opportunity to try. This is also a wonderful opportunity to highlight up and coming designers as well as construction techniques people have not tried before. We feel this is a natural way to talk honestly about our sponsors and encourage our listeners to purchase from them. While the actual event is only during October, Ann and Janis are talking about their SOCKtober plans as soon as items begin to arrive.

Listeners will earn points for each pair of socks they finish.

The top 5 finishers will automatically earn a prize.
All prizes after that will be drawn randomly.
Points system based on a PAIR:
Shortie / Kid Socks (less than 50 grams) – 5 Points
      Socks (51-94 grams) – 10 Points
      Knee High / Leg Warmers (95+ grams) – 15 Points
       Use a Sponsors item – 5 Bonus Points
See knitting sock and points and prizes!!! Fun!!
SHIPPING on Camira KAL yarns! 
 By the end of next week everyone who has order to date ( today’s) should have their yarn. We had some we thought we could get out today but it is not dry. The weather finally changed!!! I think it wasn’t even 50 this morning. Yay!!
School of Yarn will ship out mid week next week. We’ve been waiting on one of the lovelies we are sending you!
I hope you are all as excited as we are. We are sending out an email today with information so please make sure we are in your address book so we do not get spammed out.
So as I type all of this I see why the hell I am so very tired.  I think after team Blue moon heads home this afternoon it is me, the couch, a movie and a beer!
Okay last but most certainly not least.
This… creative goodness!
Knitthechange (4)
Change Makers!
A beautiful collaboration of some of our favorite makers for makers. Inside you’ll find 5 knitting patterns with recipes & essays to inspire.
  ALL proceeds are donated to The National Women’s Law Center and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Thank you Marie Greene aka oliveknits for all of your hard work and letting us all play a part. Thank you Sarah for the lovely design in our Targhee Worsted.
Okay I am sure there is something I am missing or not doing justice to and for that I apologize.
Have a great weekend!

Inspiration Monday: new classic cowls

Happy Monday again! Hope you’re safe and dry, or cool and enjoying some fresh air wherever you are. Mother Nature’s been reminding us that she’s boss the last few weeks, hasn’t she? When she settles down a bit, we’ll be able to relax into Fall (or Spring, Down Under).

If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, the light is coming in at an angle, lighting up the tomato bushes and their bounty; you might notice that you need a little something around your neck for your morning walk. Good thing there is a fresh crop of patterns for us to choose from with the change of seasons! My pals at Churchmouse have just released a new set of Classics patterns, and I could hardly wait to share a few them with you.

Tapered CowlThe Tapered Cowl solves the problem of how to drape a tube around your neck artfully – here, there’s a larger number of stitches at the cast-on edge, which gradually decrease away as you head toward the neck. What you end up with is a graceful pool of soothing stockinette, framing your lovely face just so.

(Bonus: if the A/C kicks in right over your desk in the office, you can pull the larger portion down over your shoulders, eliminating the need for a cardigan slung over the back of your office chair!)

The pattern calls for sport-weight yarn knitted at 6 stitches to the inch, making for a solid-yet-drapey fabric. What a perfect opportunity to take advantage of Silky Victoria’s body and luster.

One skein is all you need for this beauty – that, and a few stitch markers to remind you to do the decreases every umpty-ump rounds. (Does anyone else find this kind of project ideal for visually-rich binge-worthy shows like Outlander and Wolf Hall? Knit knit knit for most of an episode, then pause – do the decrease round, pour another beverage, get a snack and – hit play again!)

I’m thinking a skein of “Say Nevermore” on Silky Victoria might be sneaking their way into my Blue Moon shopping cart this afternoon.

But here’s a heads-up: this pattern also works beautifully with finer yarns! The 6 stitch-to-the-inch gauge on US3 needles means you can ‘open up’ lace- or fingering-weight yarns … which was exactly what I had to do with those two skeins of Yaksi Fingering. Mmm! And just as soon as I bind that one off, I’m casting on again with two skeins of La Luna Lace in “Winter Solstice” for my mom’s Christmas present (yup, it’s that time, people!).

half & half worstedIf you’re looking for neckwear with some architectural interest, how about the Half & Half Cowl? Half of the knitting is done flat, before joining in the round to knit the second half circularly. This allows the flat half to splay open over your shoulders (great to tuck under your coat when it gets really cold later in the season!), while the circular portion cozies up around your neck and ears. It’s a lavish depth at 20″/51cm, so it’s a great way to feature a colorway you just adore. It makes the most of a full skein of Targhee Worsted, which is what I cast on in “Spruced” last weekend – what a bouncy, fun knit!

The pattern includes two cool geeky techniques: tubular cast-on and bind-off methods that have been worked over and streamlined so they’re less intimidating and more approachable (always a wonderful feature of Churchmouse patterns).

What I love about these two pieces is that they take prime knitting real estate – the area that frames your face – and give you tons of room to feature glorious yarns in beautiful colorways. I can’t think of a better way to feature some of the loveliness that rolls out of the barn at Blue Moon.

Happy casting on, everyone!


Camira KAL yarn update

First off I hope that where ever you on this disaster ridden planet of ours you are taking care!

We are still smokey here from the wildfires that have been raging on for most of the summer out here. we are up high so we’ve basically had smoky air since the beginning of July.

It’s a little worst right now because of the Eagle Creek fire in the Columbia Gorge. A lot of you have asked so I just wanted to let you know we are good. There were a few days we had to shut down early from the smoke and heat and some of our people had to go home because they have asthma but we are still here and doing what we do.

We are heart broken.


The Columbia Gorge is a magically beautiful part of the Pacific Northwest and most of us here have spent a lot of time hiking and enjoying all the wonder that is the Columbia Gorge. It’s one of those places that touches you so deeply that it leaves a mark. I know it has for me.

We will be working with and are donating to Friends of the Columbia Gorge.


If you are not already a member this is a good time to become a Friend of the Columbia Gorge. There are all kinds of ways we all can help and turn that heart break into positive loving action.











Okay Camira KAL shipping info:

I am so glad Carol and I had the foresight to give plenty of time for the dyeing and shipping  of all this CAKE and Targhee for our KAL.  We just shipped out on Friday hundreds of skeins. we shipped most of the International ones since they take quite a bit longer and the rest will go out on Tuesday of next week.

If you ordered yarn from us from around the 19th of August until now we are just a bit behind our usual schedule. Unless the powers that be throw another challenge our way we should be caught up by the end of this coming week.

Thank you so very much for your patience!! I can’t wait to see all of these knit up into Camira’s!!

NOTE: All packages destined for Florida we are holding and contacting you to make sure you want them shipped. If you can and want to email us to let us know shipping info you can email us at

If you want to join the KAL and have yet to order your yarn we gently ask that you do so soon or we can’t promise that it will get to you by cast-on date.

As you can see I did not get the new colorways up as promised but will for sure next week.We have  SOCKtober coming our way next week.  How is it that time already I do not know but it is. If you are a sock knitter then and you have not experienced the SOCKtober fun then you should totally check it out! There a re special colorways ( we have a few) discounts, cool sock designs, points and prizes and just an all around good sock knitting time which is always fun!!  You can read all about it here on rav

I have a lot more to tell you but this is getting awfully long and I need to go dye some CAKE!










I think we all can agree that life is weird right now. All kinds of natural disasters from hurricanes to wildfires and hell, why not throw an earthquake in just for shits and giggles. The tragedy that all of these events is leaving in their wake is staggering…. heartbreaking and mind boggling.

Anyone else have the feeling that mother nature is seriously pissed off. I feel like she might be trying to get rid of us. I think we might need to step up our game and show her that we are worthy of living on this planet.

I am a very firm believer that who you are and what you put out into the world is what you get back. I have experienced this time and time again for myself and witnessed it in the ones I love and the world at large. When we feel negative and angry and we put that energy out into the world often it is exactly what we get back in some form or another. And if you think about it fair enough. We should get back our own stuff.  After all it is ours we should be the ones to deal with it.

There’s a maelstrom of intolerance, fear and hatred in our world right now. In my experience the only way to stand up to these negative forces is with a positive force ~ love. Always come from love. Love is strong. Love breeds tolerance and compassion. Love spreads. Love is love and love wins!! Every little bit of light and love helps no matter how small it may seem.

Spread the love!

Check out our instagram feed for #spreadthelove posts! We’ll be offering specials and doing our very best to spread goodness into the world.

Oh I almost forgot. I do not think I put a deadline on the Hunter book giveaway. Which you can read all about in the previous blog post. If you want to enter to be eligible to win a copy of this treasure of sock knitting brilliance you have until the 15th of Sept.

Rockn’ Whorl clubbers you’re notes will be emailed on Monday!

Have a lovely weekend! Stay safe!
