Hey there...

 So I am thinking a lot about color, dyeing and knitting right now. I've thrown open the window and latting all the winds of creativity blown in.

 As knitters who have knit quite a bit with my colors I would like to know a few things.

1. Do you knit colors you never wear just for the experience of knitting with them.

2. What is your least favorite color?

3. What is your favorite color?

4.Do you like high contrasts  like purple and yellow?

5. Do you prefer subtle shades?

6. What ido you knit the most? Speckles, Self patterning, Solids, Tonals.

7. How do you feel about one-of-a-kind non-repeatable colorways?

8. What plays into your color choices the most?

9. Do you mostly choose color based on project or project based ona color you bought becuase you loved it.

10 To date what has been your fav RSC colorway?

 

If you could comment here or... you can email your answer to me. tina@bluemoonfiberarts.com

Have a great weekend!

If you are at Black Sheep Gathering come by and say hi!!

Hello my lovely NSK's

Just checking in to make sure everyone was abloe to get their patterns. I know some have had trouble becuase of the browser issues.

What we have found especially using Firefox is the links are not active. You can make then so by save the pdf with the link in it onto whatever device you are using and then the links works!!!   Not to hard at all.

I am thrilled that so many of you are in love with this colorway!! Yay!!

I am too. We have put it up so you can purchase more.

Oh and before I forget a reminder that your 20% coupon code expires on July 15th!!

The code in in the January Dyer's Notes at the end!

Hope everyone is have a good weekend!

Happy knitting!!

Hello my lovelies!

     How has your Spring been so far? It's finally warming up here so I am pretty thrilled. Maybe we will all stay healtheir now for awhile with some sunshine.

okay so we are in the process of shipping. We sent out half today and will send the rest on Monday. The local PO asked that we hold off on the rest since they are still short handed. I thought they'd added staff but not. So...I will plan for this the next shipment.

The pattern page with all of the pattern info is up as is the Inspiration Board. The dyer's notes will be up by Monday. I just plain ran out of time.

I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with this one. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have creating it all.

oh there is a liitle somhitng extra in your package. Hold onto to it. All will become clear in time. A little knit mystery or mischief or maybe a little of both!

Happy Bunny Day!

Have a great weekend!

PS: Almost for got! After this shipment we are closing down signups so if you have been waititng for the very last moment we are there!

Wow just looked at the daye of my last post here and it has been awhile. So much has happened!

Goodness! I have stopped posting a lot here because I am not sure anyone reads it. I know a few of you do like Sarah, Cristi and Hazel so my apologies, dear ones. One of my New Year resolutions is to be better about posting here and RAV (don't faint).

In my defense I will say that after a 10 hour day of dyeing and running things the easiest social media sharing for me is Instagram. A quick pic and a blurb and bam!! And you all know how I LOVE to take pictures. I take them ALL the time.

Anyway I hope everyone had a great holiday! We had a white Christmas so I was pretty stoked about that! All my kids were here and my sone and I built a fire in the fire pit in the snow at night on Christamas Eve which seemed seriously magical!!

I am very excited about our magical year of sock knitting. I have made most of the colorways for the year and OMG!!! I so wish I could show you. So stoked!!

As most of you know sign ups are LIVE so if you have not already signed up for our magical year now is a good time!

I am ready to start our first game are you??

Recently I had to match sock club colorways with the months and years and patterns they were with.

I know... I did not do very well and had to resort to the dyer's notes and patterns.

Yeah it was not one of my proudest moments.

So here's the game

I am going to list a whole bunch of colorway names and you need to identify the sock club year they were a part of, the month, and the pattern/desginer name. Bonus points for the theme if there was one.

Okay here is your list of colorways:

Portland Plaid  *  Electric Koolaid Acid Test  *   Titania  *   Super Hero Blues 

Bella Coola  *  Cables of Wrath  *  Dragon Dance  *  Feeling Groovy 

Gran's Kitchen  *  Flower Power  *   Honey Cock-A   *  Mad as a March Hare

Maia   *   Pacific Crest Trail  *  Pink Granite  *   Rainforest Jasper  *  Tidepooling

Monsoon  * Wavelength  * Winter Jewel  * Lucky Number Seven  * Mustang Sally

Chaos  *  Acorny  *  Monsoon  *  Pepe le Plume   *  Bread and Butterflies 

Starry Starry Night  *  Secrets   *  Cherry Bomb  *  Fairgrounds

Okay that is probably enough.

The 1st person to get all of the pieces right wins 40% discount code good for a 2 time use during 2018

The 2nd person to get all of the pieces right wins 25% discount code good for a 2 time use during 2018

The 3rd person to get all of the pieces right wins 15% discount code good for a 2 time use during 2018

Please email your response to sockclub@bluemoonfiberarts.com

You have until January 31st to submit your entries.

Yes, you have to be a 2018 RSC memeber to play along.

Stay tuned for a spotify playlist for January!!

Any thought on magical songs?!

Have a lovely weekend my dear notorious friends!

Happy Monday my notorious sock knitting friends!

I hope everyone has their yarn!! Hazel got her in record time after we finally got it out of the dye barn. Holy moly!! I think this last sets a new record for how many things can possible put in kink in the works.

Thank you so very, very much for your patience. Believe it ro not we still had people out sick last week. It's crazy!! I spent all weekend dyeing and playing catch up. Anyway...

So check out the homepage!!

We have the 2018 info up.

We are going celebrate our 13th year with all things magical!! I'm pretty excited. I have been gathering our designers for the year and working out themes and patters. I think you will be thrilled out the diverse group of deigners and how we are working with them!

Our new pattern/designer approach means we are going to get to work with one of my favorite sock designers the seriously clever Hunter Hammersen!!

If ther are any designers you would liek to see please let us know in the comments section here of email them to sockclub@blueoonfiberarts.com

As I said we are mixing things up this year on our magical mystery tour!

So why not start right out of the gate with making sign-ups available before the holidays?!

Surprise!!!!

Sometime today we will be making the RSC 2018 Magical Mystery Tours Sign-ups live!!

You will be able to purchase gift certificates and also just sign-up!

I did my very best to keep the cost close to what it was or a little less. Wool prices just went up so that made it challenging and also USPS pricing is going up again.

If you have any questions or thoughts or ideas for magical themes I'd love you input! sock club@bluemoonfiberarts.com

Have a great day!!

Hello my dear NSK's  guess what??

Yes, right you are. We are running a bit late. Due to some circumstances beyond our control like natural disasters where some of our nationwide team are and a very late yarn delivery.

Our goal is to put up you pdf's early this week.

And to start shipping your yarn out at the end of the week next week.

Seriously sorry for this delay!!

I popped over to take a gander on our RSC group on ravelry and noticed that a few of you have really been having a bit of a hard time.

You are most definitely in my thoughts!!! Sending all kinds of love your way.

Life has been a bit challenging here also so I do understand. I thnk maybe a lot of us are feeling this way.

Luckily we have knitting eh?!! Of course this makes me more sad over this lateness but I am no match for hurricanes and such! That much I do know!

So...it is Autumn. Which means cooler knitting and wool wearing weather.

I love this time of year! All the color and the crispmess in the air. Pumpkin Spice everyhting!!

What is your favorite aspect of Autumn?

ok off to the barn to dye!!!

xoxo
