September Shipment Update

We are all set to start shipping tomorrow, Friday the 14th. Oy so... late! However as of this moment 11:20 pm we have no power becuase of the big ol storm that has hit here.

I don't mind telling you my friends it is a wee bit scary up here. So very windy.

Anyway I just wanted to give you a heads up on what is going on here. It's been quite a few weeks. Some wicked plague hit here and seriously there were a few days where it was just 3 of us. Everytime the phone rang in the mornign I thought," oh no another oen is down!".

I did not get it which I an extremely greatful for. Okay I should go to bed although this wind makes it hard to sleep.

So anyone have thoughts on the themes for next year? I heard from a few of you via email.

I'm pretty excited.

Oh I need to remember to post a picture here of the Sparkle yarn hanging in the barn. Oh my so magical. I promise it is worth your patient and generous waiting!

okay off to bed for this dyer!

September Shipping Delay

Helly My Lovely NSKs,

I don't know how it is already the end of September but, it most certainly is. This summer just flew by! I love fall, so I'm pretty happy about October being just around the bend. The leaves are already turning here!!

I'm sending you this email to let you know that we're going to be about a week later than our end of the month shipping date. Seems to be a theme this year.

We're sending you more yarn this time. We might even be sending you two skeins in two different colorways and maybe a different base along with our beloved STR.

I know...

Twice the yarn means twice everything production-wise and we are a little short handed, so it is just taking longer.

Instead of becoming stress monsters about it, I told Team Blue Moon that our Sock Club members are the loveliest knitters and will not mind waiting another week for their yarn.

We will post the patterns and Dyer's Notes on Monday October 3rd and ship your yarn out the following week.

Thank you for your patience!!!

Your depravedDyer

P.S. I have a bunch of questions for you in the Dyer's Notes, so be sure to read them.

July (now August) shipping update

Good morning!!!

I just wanted to let you know that we shipped over 3/4's of the packages out yesterday and the rest will go tomorrow.

All Canadian and International packages have left the barn. Since they take a wee bit longer we always try to get those out first.

I was thinking that maybe we could all post pictures of our favorite places on instagram.

What do you think of that idea?

It's always nice to have a visual.  We can use the hashtags  #RSC #favoriteplace #bluemoonfiberarts  that way we will all be sure to see them.

I want to give a shout out to team Blue Moon for rocking this out of the park once the yarn waltzed in the door.

There are a lot of you so we usually spread out the dyeing a bit or I stick one person on it if I feel that the colorway needs that. Luckily since this is a Tipsy the dyeing goes quickly but still I walked to the barn at the end of last week to see where we were and prepared to be working all weekend and boom!!  They were done with the first batch and then it was just matter of waiting until the second one is done drying.

So thank you Brandy, Kalia, Sarah, Maggie, Becky Jess, Debra and Paula!!!

I am doing a little color research and am hoping you can help me out. All I need is to know is what your favorite color is and then also what color you wear the most.

Speaking of color anyone know what all the scummy Blue Moon colors are?

The ones with scum actually in the colorway name.

First three people to lsit them here in the comments section win a scummy skein of yarn!

This is most probaly another one of those contests that I think is hard and you all are going to get it right away.

Contest end on Friday the 19th.

Favorite Place

Good morning NSK's!!!

It is a lovely coolish morning here in the hills of Scappoose. As soon and the sun creeps over the hillside I am sure it will warm up quite nicely.

As we all wait for our yarn I thought we could talk about our favorite places. I have share with you what mine is and the why and how's of it all. I would like to know what yours is.

Are you an ocean person like me or do you love the hustle and bustle of a certain city, or maybe the mountains?

I love hearing what others see and feel about a place. Then I get to see and feels things from another perspective.

okay I am off to the barn to dye gradient kits.

Have a wonderful day!!

I cannot believe it is already August. Where has this summer gone?

I'm late, I'm late for...

A very important date.
No time to say hello, good-bye,
I'm late, I'm late, I'm late
I'm late and when I wave,
I lose the time I save.
My fuzzy ears and whiskers
Took me too much time to shave.
I run and then I hop, hop, hop,
I wish that I could fly.
There's danger if I dare to
Stop and here's a reason why:
I'm over-due, I'm in a rabbit stew.
Can't even say good-bye,

Hello, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late.      

Thank you White Rabbit I could not have said it better! 

Hello my dear NSK's,

  Your patterns and dyer's notes are up and we will be starting to ship tomorrow. We had to wait on the printer for a day. We were going to ship today but no matter how much hopping we did we could nto make it happen.

I hope you have as much fun knitting these as we did creating them! 

I am assuming by now everyone has gotten their yarn from last time and seen their tags.

While we are patiently waititng for this months yarn let us play yarn-tag-match-up.

 First question is what is on the back of your tags?

There are 14  draconic names or types of dragons on the back of the Dragon Song tags. Each on is from something mythical, fictional and mostly popular.

Here is the list of dragon names or types of dragons on the back of your tags. Your mission is to name the author, or book or story or movie or game that said dragon comes from.

Golden Dragon
Fire lizards    
Draco Nobilis 
Common Welsh Greens

The first person to guess them all wins a skein of our new Super Sparkle and our Tigger Targhee!!

Ready, set go!!!!

Thursday is for pdf posting!

Good morning!

Just a note to let you know that we shipped the International packages on Friday and will be sending out the rest on Thursday.

We will also be posting the pdf's on Thursday morning.

While we are patiently waiting I thought maybe we could talk about the magic of stories. Who does not love a good story. So my question is what is your favorite kind of reading to do? Are you a science fiction fan, or prefer classic or modern literature, or romance novels or, biographies... ?

Is there an all time favorite book that touched you in some way or that you find yourself going back to?

Address changes anyone???


Well it is that time again. I do not know how it is already the end of March but here we are.

If you have any address changes Paula would LOVE it if you could get them to her before she prints the shipping labels on Monday.

We will be closing down sign-ups after this shipment so if you have been waititng for the very last minute we are there.

I have not forgotten the blog button. We will put that up in a few days and also have a contest cause it is sooo time!

The barn is full to birmming with this months colorway. It's so pretty! I am so excited about this one since it's kind of magical. It has given me the opportunity to reread one of my favorite series. So much fun!

okay. It is late and I need to get some sleep but I promised Paula that I would ask for address changes before tomorrow.

Yeah last minute Tina here.

Hope everyone is well and happily knitting!

Superbowl Colors

Okay I can honestly say that I have never typed that on any blog post anywhere. Needless to say I am not a huge football fan. I mean I can enjoy a game or two but that is about as far as it goes for me.

So I had no idea that this was happening this Sunday.

You see it right?

Our January colorways right there in the two teams ( Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers)  that are playing this weekend.

I'm thinking this means we might need a cast-on day this Sunday. It has to mean something this sporty color kismet. Right?

Alright then off to bed for me... .
