Hazel

I am sure some of you already know this but I wanted to make sure everyone heard that our dear, wonderful Hazel has passed away. She's moved on to her next journey.

Such a bright and shiney light our Hazel with a fair amount of sass! My love for Hazel runs deep. I know that I carry Hazel in my heart but honestly I will miss her so very much. I know many of us will feel this loss. I am sorry for us all for she was near and dear to so many of us. I am also so very grateful for Hazel in our lives!

  Here is the link to her memorial that her friend Dawn sent our way.

I want to do something to honor our friend but have not wrapped my head around what that looks like yet. If you have any thoughts please do let me know.

dearest Hazel, thank you so very much for sassy, loving,fun self! I hope our paths cross again. Enjoy your wings dear friend. Love you!

Cheers and red wine!!

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

love to all

2020 Rockin' Sock Club

Happy Wedensday NSK's!!

  I will have the sock club up for sign-ups by Friday. I was hoping the new website would be ready but alas it is not. So we are moving forward. We are not using this website for sign-ups. It is very old and buggy and the shipping part of it is a nightmare for us. SO for this transition we are moving the sign-ups to the regualr Blue Moon website.I am very good at making lemonade when offered a basket of lemons.

 After you hit shop online there will be a Rockin' Sock Club 2020 category that you can click and then you can pick what you want to purchase

We are offering this year as promised a half year option for purchase. So if you want to pay for the first half of the year and then the other half as we get there then you have that option. It does cost a little more since it is more work on our end.

We've worked very hard on keeping the pricing down even though our sock yarn prices went up quite a bit, more that they ever have actually. Shipping is calculated in the total cost and that also went up, asi it seems to do.

We will email via constant contact the Dyer's Notes and Patterns each shipment.

When you sign-up make sure you have an account with Blue Moon and also please add in your phone number in case we can't reach you by email.

Yes, I am disappointed that the new site is not ready as I am sure you are. However there are worse things and we ware going to dwell in the positive!

I do hope you will join us on our 2020 Space Odyssey.

Oh and for those of you who signed up here we are transfering you over so no worries!!!

Have a wonderful day!!

Shipping this week!

We are shipping this week and we will have the pattern and dyer's notes to you at the end of the week.

I was expecting a new yarn I wantedto send as an extra in this shipment since it's a new sock yarn. However the whole shipment did not show and I do not want to send it to helf of you so it will have to happen next time.

It's exciting . Well at least I am excited about it. I think you will too.

So after we ship this one, there will be 2 more shipments left for 2019. One in November and one in December and despite every single hurdle thrown our way we've made it.

I hope you all are getting to enjoy the magnificent Autumn we are having.

xoxo

Socks that Rock is actually rockin'

Happy Sunday!

As of today (Sunday August 11th) all of April has shipped and we are dyeing June and the plan is to ship at the end of this week barring any surprises which seriously needs to stop. Like please, I'm begging for it to stop!

I thought we would be farther ahead than we are this point this past week but Crystal had a family emergency last week and Kalia was out with a medical thing for most of the week. Which left Sarah and myself.
I know...it's ridiculous.
I feel like at this point I should sell the rights to a Blue Moon soap opera. Because really some of this stuff just leaves me standing speechless with my mouth hanging open, which is not an attractive look on anyone or a good feeling.
Okay, so one of the things that has happened is the Canadian and International labels won't print in the RSC system. So even though we have shipped them they will not show in your account as shipped so don't panic.
Our techie is on vacation and it is an older system so I do not want anyone else messing with it. As soon as he is back it will be fixed!!
I am very busy dyeing all the yarn. Everything is as fine as it can be with this kind of yarn/mill  and short staffed drama.
As I mentioned before I am working on changing things so this stops happening and we have more control. I have taken on a partner that is going to help so very much in so many ways and the past few weeks have been spent finalizing all of the details of that and putting forth some plans.
You are the ones who are going to see the results of this partnership first.
It's very exciting!
I will put up the June pattern and dyer's notes probably on Tuesday so you have them.
We will be shipping the August shipment right after Labor Day.
Oh and I interviewed a woman who I think is going to join our team this week as a dyer. So fingers crossed.
Thank you for hanging in here with us. I know it's been a lot believe me, I get it. I so very am grateful for each and everyone one of you. And these are not just words for me. Making and dyeing yarn is fun but it has no meaning without you.

Have a wonderfu Sunday!!

PS: My daughter Sophia was took her medical school oath and got her white jacket yesterday!!!So thrilled and proud and honestly a little scared fro her. It's a lot but she so can do it and this is her passion. She is going to be such a great doctor. Proud mama!!!
