Yarn crush!

Okay so I know I have been on and on about this yarn but seriously it’s the bomb!! It’s on my mind today because there’s loads of it drying in the barn.

And yes…it’s Ripple!! Look at that!! Click on the photo to make it bigger and look at all of that color and textural wooly wonder. Just stunning!! Every time one of us walks by the skeins drying we stop and pet and oogle and some of us ( and we all know who) even bury their faces in it for a good wool whiff.

One of you you creative souls ( you know who you are ) is making blankets ( a lot of them) with our Ripple friend so we are having a good dye time! And now I totally want to knit a blanket for myself our of some of our moon colors from this year. Wouldn’t that be stunning?!! It’s super cold so what better time to knit a warm, soft and cozy blanket? And soon it is January, where we knit for ourselves,  is quickly approaching so look at that.

Maybe we should have a January BKAL Blanket Knit-along.  What do you think?

Anyway…Ripple is stunning and I am feeling blessed and pretty thrilled that I have a nice big stash of it in the dye barn! lol

Thanks to our lovely Karen our yarn sat in  the same room this week with Natalie Chanin ( Alabama Chanin) so… that happened!!

It’s Saturday morning and I have 2 sets of dyer’s notes to get out along with my other weekend catch-up tasks. So my fiber loving friends I am off to the barn to take yarn pics and then it’s all the writing! I’m gonna make a bunch of tea and build a fire in the fireplace and curl up with my laptop and write all about color, yarn, knitting, socks and… .

Have a wonderful weekend!

 

New Color!!

Happy Friday!!

I am writing to you from my son’s house with a pup cuddled up beside me!! Can’t get better than that. The past two weeks has been a whirlwind of filling orders and making new colors.  When inspiration hits I do with it, mostly because I don’t really have a choice. I am usually consumed until I get it all down on the yarn.

I am working right now with a lot of subtle hues and expanding our Shaded Solid range. Some of those will not be up for a little bit longer. I need to finesse the photography. I have added a few though as you can see below. Also a few new colorways for this Christmas season.  I do love this time of the year and the holidays with it. My favorite aspect of the holiday at this time of year is being with my family and friends and spreading the love.

For me gratitude is a daily practice, it’s not an easy one some days but it is one that is expansive and enlightening and enriches my life in ways I probably am not even aware of.

Today I would like to thank all of you for being a part of our Blue Moon family and our fiber community at large. All of the beautiful and diverse souls that are who we are. One of my favorite parts about the world we live in is how different we are all and yet the same on so many levels!! Thank you for sharing all you with us!!  We see  and appreciate you!

Okay….here we are!!!

So… my favorites are ALL of the plummy ones. I just love them!! And they would make a stunning fade of some sort! I’m pretty tickled with Snow Cone. Pine cone colors with white and a wee bit of grey for the snowy sparkle. I am in the process of adding these so if a few do not show yet they will be there this weekend!

And coming soon to our Coven Collection!!

These three do not have names yet and I need to do the photography over so you can see the subtle shading better but here they are in all of the neutral beauty!!

Okay so the family is awake and this a family morning for me so I am going go have coffee!!!

We are running offering a 15% off Special code this weekend as a THANK YOU for you patience and support this year. Starts now and is good until Tuesday! Oh and we are well stocked with yarn!!!!!!!!!!!!

That code is: thankewe19

Sock Club we are shipping next week!!!

Happy Friday!!

It’s very early in the morning and instead of tossing and turning I’m decided I would make use of this time to write this post. I have a hard time with the whole fall back and gain an hour time change. I never really adjust to it. Luckily for me in 2020 Oregon goes to constant daylight savings time so this is the last shift. I am thrilled!

It’s been a very busy week in Blue Moonland with the Full Beaver moon in all of it’s glory starting the week off.

IMG_6322

Our new dyers Kelsie and Karen are catching on so very fast and we are getting caught up on all the things.  I actually had tie this week to make new colors! I know!!! And get this…to knit. I mean in al honesty I should be putting more time in on getting the new website tested so we can get it up. However there is only so many hours at a stretch that I can stare at a computer screen without my brain melting and my eyes hurting.

Anyway I am knitting a very simple infinity scarf for myself. Yup for me!! I am knitting it in our Ripple and I am seriously possessed with this yarn. I am not usually a fan of bulky knitting but I’m telling you the texture and color on this is addicting. I know I am driving team Blue Moon a little crazy with my constant delight. I am one of those knitters that talks to their knitting praising it for it’s beauty, complimenting it on how it feels at it slips through my fingers and onto the needles and then how each stitch display into  a stunning fabric.

IMG_6344

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m smitten! I am knitting it in our Super Worm Moon colorway and just having the best time. I am challenged enough in life right now that my knitting needs to be the mindless kind that soothes and comforts and this sure is doing the trick.

IMG_6350

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am farther along than this picture shows but it is shows off the color and it’s dark out still so I can’t take a picture yet this morning to show it off more! Don’t worry I will! If you have not yet ordered this I highly recommend that you do. It’s soooo good!

It’s time for a color change so we’ve sent some of the more Autumn colors off to the spa and added in some of our Holiday ones as promised. As I mentioned I’ve been making new colorways so we will be adding those in also in the next few weeks. If there are any Holiday or Winter type colorways of ours you’d liek to see please do let us know.

Also if you have any color wishes for new colors. I’m feeling super inspired at the moment working on some crazy cool neutrals and complex shaded solids along with some other fun  color ideas I have had floating around in my little color brain.

Okay well it’s time to go out and get things prepped for the day. We’ve been blessed with extraordinarily beautiful mornings as of late so my walk morning walk to the dye barn has been quite magical. I had my morning coffee earlier in the week standing in the garden with Phoebe bathed in mystical foggy moonlight!

Have a wonderful day!!

 

We are here!!

I realized this week when a few of you emailed asking if I was okay that maybe it had been awhile since I posted.  I am fine. We are fine. Actually we are all kinds of wonderful just super busy with new worker bees and the training that is involved with new dyers.

We have two new dyers Karen and Kelsie  that at least in my book are keepers! It also makes our team out here; Me (Tina), Kalia, Sarah, Crystal, Karen and Kelsie.  So much hard C and K sounds. Sarah and I are the odd ones out which in all honestly totally fits! Always the odd duck. Anyway training new dyers is a whole lot of work and we had a few that kind of floundered in the dye pot before these two gems waltzed in. It feels like a team again and I can’t tell you how thrilled we all are!

Thrilled enough to make new color and bring in a few new yarns kind of thrilled.

Colorway shown here is: Calla

Actually the yarn is one we carried eons ago. It was one of the first ones I added in after Woobu. I loved the texture of it and how it took color. I was still a bit of a new knitter at the time and I felt like this yarn with all of it thick and thin ripples did most of the work for me. Seriously with all of that texture and color I could just knit and end up with a stunning fabric!

So here we are right before the holidays where we are going to hit deadlines our knit optimism signed us up for.  We all are going to run out of time since time is that commodity none of  us seem to have enough of or decide at the very last moment that  hell yeah I am so going to knit Aunt Jenny a cowl, she so deserves a hand knit.

It is at this point that our bulky yarns are our best friends. I could knit a cowl at of Ripple in an evening with the right netflix and some coffee. You can knit this on anything from an size 10 ( if you are a loose knitter) to a 13. I recommend needle sizes about 10 so you can really appreciate the play between the thicker and thinner parts of this yarn and the looser you knit the more that Ripple does it job.

Here are a few patterns I thought would work so well!

You could also old school it and be super creative, choose a simple stitch pattern and do a little math and swatch and design your own. I want something long that I can wrap around a few times because this yarn is so very soft. I wore the skein wrapped around few a few days! Yes it is that soft and pretty!!

IMG_6082

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seriously cozy!!!

So we brought in a short run of our Ripple to see how you like it so don’t wait too long. Trust me you are so going to want to knit with this and then wear it. That probably is the only drawback is if you are gift knitting you might want to get another for yourself !!

Hope everyone had a fun Halloween. As you can see Team Blue Moon had some fun!

Kalia and Sarah were on fire ALL day!!

Too much fun!

I’ll leave you with this new beauty and then I am off to run errands!!

It’s a wonderful night for a moon dance!

“Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moon dance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush
Can I just have one more moon dance with you, my love”
~ Van Morrison

It’s full moon tonight!! This one is the Hunter’s Moon which is the first full moon after the Autumn Equinox.  I have made so very many full moon colorways this year and while it has been all kinds uf fun and illuminating, (hehe)I’m not gonna lie I am finding it a little challenging at the moment. I mean  colorwise it’s the moon and a night sky if we are being literal. I am not a creatively literal person when it comes to translating and interpretation so phew! Since it’s the Hunter’s Moon I had this grand idea that I would use hunter camo colors. I actually was pretty tickled with myself for this little bit of inspiration. However it proved a little more difficult than I thought. I either got muddiness because, ya know the whole camo thing or it just was not what my vision was. I finally got  something I am happy with and 2 other colors in the process which does often happen.
What do you think?
IMG_5997
There’s my Hunter’s Moon! It was Pond Scum that saved the day on this one. I can’t tell you how often that is true! haha
And then….
IMG_5998
because I loved my muted camo hues I made a colorway with just them. I had a hard time coming up with a name for it other than CamoLITE so I asked our insagram folks and got a ton of wonderful suggestions. I chose Catacomb Mushrooming because they do look like mushroom colors and I had just read the piece about Paris using it’s abandoned catacombs to grow mushrooms and seriously why not!
Our Autumn Moon Glow ( pictured above) is inspired by the warmly wonderful orangeness of the moon this time of year!! I just could not resist. Orange is kind of a thing right now and it’s such a lovely color so I am going to be taking advantage of our orange crush ( get it?!)

Photo and knit credit on this beauty goes to @mtnstitches
Rhinebeck is next weekend and everyone is heading that way in their stunning sweaters! I love seeing what everyone has been knitting all over social media. Beside the octopus one I think this Weekender in Pond Scum might be my current favorite. It turned out so well and… bear with me while I am going to toot my own horn here. I had to match yarn she bought in  forever ago and it worked perfectly! Don’t you love when that happens. I do my best to make this so but when it has been sooo long and both the yarn and dye has changed it’s just way more of a challenge. I’m over my blue moon self that it worked!
Okay so remember a few weeks ago when I said we were going to be making some price changes? Well that is happening this week. It is mostly on our big hanks of garment yarns. We are going to do our best to hold off on the sock yarns right now. Please know that we do our very best to keep prices affordable for you while being able to make ends meet here.
Thank you as always for your support.
In 2020 we are going into our 20th year which is quite amazing especially after the year we just had and that is because of you!! There is no us without you. Our makers are the heart and soul of who we are and what we do. So my friends we are going to celebrate so very much!!

Okay I need to go wrap up dyer’s notes and send out a few emails and then also go pick up this sweetheart! I might be a little excited.

Have a great Sunday!

knit this!!!

It’s a quiet and lovely Saturday morning. I have my coffee, the sun streaming through my window and my knitting! I am knitting a hat for friend out of our Plushy in one of our Rare Gem colorways.

Plushy is such a delight to knit with. I usually do not enjoy knitting with heavier weight yarns but Plushy  just feels so good and the stitch definition is so great. Watching the all those knits and purls situate themselves is just delightful! So…a good morning.

Today I am going to share with you some of my current favorite designs. Some are new and some are just wonderful and today is about the wonderful.

Okay let’s start with a small obsession of mine the Octopus. I love these under the sea creatures. I am fascinated by them but also have a healthy respect for their intelligence. So I am going to love anything related to them but this, oh my… .

Embrace Octopus Sweater by Maia E. Sirnes

If I remember  correctly  Maia’s design came out sometime in 2013. I was entranced and planned on knitting it which to be honest has yet to happen. It is on my list and towards the top so the odds are pretty good!  One of our Eat Sleep Knitters ( Jen aka @tentacularly) has been knitting this beauty out of our Targhee Worsted in; Blue is the New Black and Coral Bells and posting her progress on instagram and well, just look!

Everyone  knitter on Team Blue Moon wants to make this one. Hell, I am not a huge coral fan and I want to make this one. It’s a great color combination in general but especially for and octopus/water theme.

I knew something was going down when we started getting orders for these starting last week. So of course now my color brain is thinking of others  octo-color combos for Maia’s lovely design. Also… why do I not have a Octopus color series? What is wrong with me?

Porcini background color and Bluebird of Happiness for our Octopod friend. Oh my… and here I was going to work on new Autumn and Halloween hues this weekend.

And speaking of Bluebird of Happiness ( I swear I did not plan this segueway)

Look at this beauty!!

Farmers Poncho by Lavanya Patricella

I pretty much love anything Lavanya designs she has such a wonderful design aesthetic. And I do have a soft spot for a poncho and this one is brioche!!! I know!

Also an instagram follow/find. One of Lavanya’s test knitters, Kat ( @katknitz) color and yarn choices which just happen to be our yarns!!

She used one of our, A Total Eclipse of the Sun  Featherlight gradient kits  as the main color and then for the contrast colors used another Featherlight in Shadow and then Socks that Rock Lightweight in Grasshopper Green and Bluebird of Happiness.

I don’t know about you but I would wear this everywhere. It looks cozy, has wonderful flattering lines and… it leaves room for movement. I love where it hits on the arm too. I’ve already dyed the yarn to cast on for this one!

Okay I do have a few more but this post is getting lengthy. One more…in the latest issue of Ply Magazine is this beauty by Cal Patch.

Look at that texture! So lovely!

Okay my lovelies I need to send out a few update newsletters before the day gets away from me.

The last color club shipment goes out this coming week all about value! Working on the next sock club and Star Sponsorship and getting the Spinning club notes out this weekend. My spinning wheel broke which kind of messed things up a bit. And of course I have loaned all my others out so…

I will be introducing our new team members to you very soon. We have 2 new dyers Marit and Karen. We love them, especially the me of we!

Because a bunch of you have asked we have about 70 skeins of BFL Sport left and then we are done. I have been assured there is no more hiding away in corners of the mill. I have a selfish request. If you do want some of this BFL before it is no longer, please do order it soon so we do not have to add it to the new website as an option. Thank you!!

Oh and if you have any Autumn or Halloween color theme ideas do let us know. info@bluemoonfiberarts,com

Okay lovelies have a wonderful weekend!

Shine on Harvest Moon!!

Up in the Sky!

Hey did you see that big beautiful Harvest Moon last night?  I was worried that we would not see it since it was cloudy all day and then last night the clouds parted and there was that stunning golden  lunar light! A great Friday the 13th!!

IMG_5805

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s the color I made for our Harvest Full Moon.  I wanted colors of harvest and Autumn. Luckily they share a lot of hues. Some of the brighter ones are hard to see but are there. I’m going to ball one up later today and cast on somethings just so I can see all of the colors. I am so excited for Autumn. So much color. The leaves have already started to turn colors here and the fields are full of pumpkins!!

I have added some of my favorite Autumn colorways to the website and will change them up in a few weeks along with adding some new ones.

Last week I announced our new yarn Corrie.

Our Corrie is a light an lovely fingeringweight  3 ply yarn spun with 75% Superwashed Corriedale and 25% Nylon. We are on a mission to expand and diversify our wool yarns! Corriedale is a lovely wool.

Corriedale sheep are widely farmed in New Zealand, Australia, Southern Brazil, the United States, Patagonia and Uruguay. It is the most popular breed of sheep in Uruguay. Corriedale was developed by crossing Leicester and Lincoln rams with Merino ewes during the late 1800s in both New Zealand and Australia.

A  Corriedale fleece wool has a fiber diameter of 25 to 30 microns. On average, a mature ewe will produce around 4.5-7.7 kg wool with a staple length of 3.5 to 6 inches. Corriedale is  not as fine a wool as Merino but it is fine enough! Our Corrie is soft and lofty and takes dye like a dream! I love the hand of this yarn and can see it in so many applications! I have knit a small swatch and to be honest I am loving this more than I thought I would.

Oh my goodness the loft and the elasticity. It’s bounce back is wonderful!  The fabric I am getting is well defined in stitch, has a nice sheen and actually looks like wool. It’s also softer than I thought it would be so soft. We are really going to love this yarn. I am sending of a whole bunch of it to Karen for a sweater she is designing.

IMG_5812

 

Look!!

It’s stunning! I uploaded the bigger picture so you could see those lovely stitches! I am smitten. And my dear knitters at 23.00 a skein ( 400 yds). Too good to be true right?!!

Since we are talking about wonderful yarns and pricing. I want to mention that in a few weeks we are going to be raising the price on Socks that Rock a bit. Our price has gone up quite a bit. We are going to absorb some of this cost for now but unfortunately can’t absorb it all. In exchange for this price raise we are getting more consistency across the board with our specs being met and our time-frames.

We’ve shipped out all of our pre-orders on our Moon Shadow project bags. We have a few left in stock if you missed and and need one for all of your blue moon sock knitting. I love mine. Queen Bee bags are the best and these are sexy as hell!!

I don’t know if you have seen this sweater on instagram but I am pretty possessed but it!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. To all of you sending us pics of for finished projects and also tagginf us on instagram thank you!!! We are loving seeing these so much.

Happy knitting my lovelies!!

New!!!!

Hello!!

I know it’s been awhile. I really had nothing new to report and had my head, heart and soul in the dye pot getting all the things dyed so we could get you your yarn.

Also we’ve been interviewing for new dyers. And…are you ready? It’s good!! We hired one this week and probably will hire another next week. I know!!!! So much happy dancing in the barn I will tell you.

We are over the moon thrilled.

I will share more as we get to know our new team members. I can’t tell you how happy I am. It most definitely has been a summer.

Okay so we have new colorways!! The end if Summer moving into Autumn is my all time favorite time of the year. So much color and some of my favorite types of color. So rich and with layers upon layers and then there is all of those down and dirty colors. My color happy place for sure so look for more and more new colors as we move into Autumn.

Some of the new colors I made are for the winners of the instagram contest we held. So much fun making color based on an image or someone else’s inspiration. I think I did pretty well. I still have one more to go. I made it but am unhappy with it so it is back to the dye pot. Here are the ones I did and they are up on the website right now.

Screen Shot 2019-08-31 at 7.09.53 AM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are a few other new colorways also!

It is also time for our seasonal color shift!

So I am in the process of taking some of our brighter summer hues down and adding in our Autumn ones. If there is one of our colorways you would like to see make a come back please do let us know!

Shipping updates:

We are getting seriously close to being caught up to our 15 business day promise on web orders!

Knock on wood. Goddess forbid we to tempt fate in any way whatsoever!!

We will be shipping out the 2nd installment of the silk School of Yarn. The last installment of the color club will follow right behind that as will the next sock club shipment which will have us all caught up there.

We are waiting on a few things from the mill like our Superfoot roving and Single Silk Targhee.

Soft Rock is back in stock. Yay!!!

Please do email info@bluemoonfiberarts.com if you have any questions or concerns. We have sent out bulk emails but we do get fire-walled and spammed out when we do that.

okay I think that is all for now.

On a personal note my little Bruce friend is no longer with us. Since I have shared with you our experiences together I thought I would share this too.

Bruce and I had a very special bond. Except for my dog Luna that I had in my twentys I have not experienced one like this since then so I am pretty bereft. I will miss her tons and so appreciate all the support I have been given!

Barn Sale !!!!!! Saturday August 3rd 9 to 5

barn

 

We are sooo looking forward to seeing everyone. You know it’s so funny every year I go through this thing where I panic thinking we do not have enough sale yarn. The the week before the sale we start pulling it out of the storage and sorting through it for pricing and hanging up and… then team Blue Moon laughs at me. Because in fact, we have plenty of sale yarn!

And this year I am de-stashing! So there will be all kinds of yarns some even that are not ours.  Books and maybe a spinning wheel or 2.

I know!!!

So very many pretties! We can’t wait to see you all!

IMG_2622

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Okay a few things.

If you are dyeing please either bring an apron or dress in clothes you do not mind getting dye on.

Please come 20 minutes before your scheduled time so you can pick the yarn you are dyeing and we can get it soaking.

Stash enhancers if you can bring your own bags we would be ever so grateful.

Thanks!

Below you will find the directions.  We ask that when you are coming down our gravel drive that you go very very slowly. Like 10 miles an hour slow.

We are at the end of that gravel drive so please go all the way down and DO NOT stop at the house  with the big tan barn that is on the right.

Go down to the big RED barn!! We will be out directing traffic in the am when it is the busiest.

Carpool if you can. The weather is going to be lovely so if you want to bring a picnic we have a lovely back yarn behind the barn.

okay I think that covers it!

Here are the directions:

56587 Mollenhour Scappoose Oregon 97056
Google maps works pretty well.
Cell service gets kind of sketchy once you head up the hill.

If you are coming from Portland or Vancouver you want I-405 to US 30 West
towards St.Helens
You will be on this for about 14 miles.
You are going to drive all the way through Scappoose to the end of town.
Right after the fire station is the last traffic light which is
Scappoose-Vernonia Highway
You are going to turn left onto Scappoose-Vernonia Hwy
Go about 7 miles up. It’s a pretty and curvy drive!
Turn left onto Chapman Road
Go about quarter of a mile and then turn left onto Mollenhour Road
Go about an eighth of a mile and  our gravel drive is right after a row of
