After 20 years I am back to the daily running Blue Moon all by myself at the moment. It’s been a long time since I did all the things all the time and I am not going to lie I’m a little tired. In the grand scheme of things I am lucky because I can work and my work keeps my mind occupied and my self busy creating beauty for others to create beauty out of. So I am counting myself blessed.
I was dyeing web orders yesterday and infusing all the yarn with as much light and love as I could, of course along with all the color too! So today after I finish this it is back to dyeing and rinsing so I can ship tomorrow.
A lot of you have been either emailing or posting on instagram what you are working on. Thank you so very much it’s so great to see. I always enjoy seeing your projects but especially so now. I am pretty good at being alone but this is a little challenging. I miss my team. They are all healthy so yay! I hope you all are staying home if you can and being super careful!
One of the things I dyed this past week was an order for Loop London. The owner Susan ordered a lot of our older colorways so that was a fun trip down memory lane. One of my favorites was Mad REAL which is such a bright and happy hue.
Now there is a life affirming color, if I ever saw one. Big and bold. I have put it along with quite a few other of our older colorways on the website for the next week or so. If there is an older colorway you’d like to see just let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org
Also up on the website is our SilkMO Lace!!! Because it is just me here I did not have time to add in all of the colorways. So you will see just the Snowflake colorway. How you order is to choose a colorway from the colorway search option. Then Select the Snowflake SilkMO Lace and once it is in your shopping cart then in the comments section let me know what colorway you want. Easy Peasy!! Please note that there are two yardage options. We are offering it in 300 yd skeins and 900 . Since a lot of us are carrying it with other yarns for garments I thought the bigger skeins would be helpful. The colorway shown below is: That 70’s skein
Before I go any further we are for the time being continuing the 20% discount on all yarns. The code you need for that is: supporteachother2020 and it is good for multiple uses.
One of our designers and friend is offering this lovely shawlette pattern free on RAV right now. Powell’s City of Books by Star Athean
She is offering this pattern in support of a Powells, a Portland treasure that has had to temporarily (we hope and pray) close it’s brick and mortar during this time. If you need books pleas consider buying online from them instead of you know who. It’s important we support small and locally owned business during this crisis we find ourselves in. We all have a skein of fingering-weight in our stash just begging to be this shawlette!
There are quite a few designers offering free patterns right now in order to spread the love. Which is super generous on their part. So a big thanks to all of them for their kindness and generosity.
Oh my have yo seen this sweater? Oh KT this is right up your alley!
So pretty knit with a light fingering-weight and a laceweight mohair held together!! Perfect for our Gaea Fingering and SilkMO Lace!! Also could use Soft Rock in place of the Gaea. So lovely!
Okay I have some other things but need to get to the barn to set up and this is also getting long so I will post again tomorrow!
Oh before I go though Blue Moon is looking for test and sample knitters. If you are interested please contact me at email@example.com and put sample knitter in the subject line.
Stay well and safe!
