"Let us put our minds together and see what life we can make for our children." Sitting Bull. Yep, agreed - let's do good stuff! I woke last night to some Elton John on the radio πŸ“», brought me back to those days of a transistor radio taped to our bike handlebars and cruising those St. Paul suburbs looking for action before racing home for "curfew." (Dark). I knew this morning old Elton was getting a shout out on a Kahuna label....so goodbye yellow brick road and hello to "Madman Across The Water" Kahunas. The big fella comprises 5 colors Chelsea Luxe Sock each wound 3 times into a 1,250 yard party ($120 delivered to your door). The smaller guy is 5 colors Chelsea Luxe Sock each wound 2 times resulting in 775 yards of Kahuna madness ($80 delivered to your door). That transistor radio is long, long gone but those awesome tunes keep moving on. #magicyarnball #bigkahuna #thebigkahuna #redbankmike #redbank #chelsealuxe #chelseayarns #crochet #crochetersofinstagram #yarn #yarnaddict #knittersofinstagram #knit

"I never give up. Doesn't matter what the score is." Caroline Wozniacki Sometimes its best not to look at the scoreboard, the grade, the paycheck but to dig deep and just grind. Get that mojo working and then take the next round. Sometimes it's also better to not expose your Kahuna to the elements. Instead, stash it in my new KAHUNA PROJECT BAG!!!! This hot, off the press bag has the Kahuna logo with "Kahuna City, NJ" underneath. I put these little KPD's (Kahuna Protection Devices) on the Chelsea Yarns @chelseayarns website www.chelseayarns.com under the "Kits and Goodies" menu item. $10 a bag πŸ’Ό and I am confident someone will ask "Kahuna City, NJ...what exit?" #bigkahuna #redbank #magicyarnball #chelseayarns #chelsealuxe #knit #knittersofinstagram #crochetersofinstagram #crochet #yarn #yarnporn

"The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home." Confucius. I had to show off a Kahuna from the second run of "Another Rose Gold." This specimen comprises 11 beautiful Sock Yarns from Sweet Sparrow, Hub City, Color Craze Fiber, Chelsea Luxe and Anzula Nebula. It looks AND feels like a Kahuna should. Three of them are spoken for but I will have one more when I am done winding - so if you deeply desire this colorway let me know and I will send it your way! I estimate it will be between 1,100 and 1,200 yards. I am now going to try and convince Christina @chelseayarns that she wants to watch the Stanley Cup Playoffs and not her show. #hookednj #knittersofinstagram #knittingnj #knit #crochet #crochetersofinstagram #yarn #yarnporn #chelsealuxe #chelseayarns #magicyarnball #redbank #bigkahuna

"We rise by lifting others." Robert Ingersoll. I got back at the at old rose gold colors today and am thrilled to introduce to the Kahuna world "Another Rose Gold!" A phenomenal collection of Anzula Nebula, Mrs. Crosby Satchel, Color Craze Fiber, Marianated Yarns Fingering, Hub City Fibers Indulge, Sweet Sparrow Fingering, Madeline Tosh and Chelsea Luxe Sock- 14 colors in all each wound once into a 1,250 and 1,300 yard beauty. A little color, a little glitter and a lot of pizazz.....$125 for the 1,250 yarder and $130 for the 1,300 yarder PLUS the Kahuna pin is attached! Come say "hi" to Red Bank Mike and claim your "Another Rose Gold." Have a wonderful day! #minnesotatwins #redbank #redbankmike #chelsealuxe #chelseayarns #yarnporn #yarn #knittersofinstagram #knitting #thebigkahuna #crochet #crochet #ggbd #goldengoosesneaker

"Good things happen when you meet strangers." Yo-Yo-Ma. It's been a spectacular weekend at @chelseayarns with all the NJ Wool Walk action. I've had a ball meeting everyone..thank you!!!! I fired up the winder this morning in sunny Kahuna City, NJ and busted out this funky concoction from short yardage pieces of Chelsea Luxe Sock. Say "Aloha" to "Kaleidoscope," the newest addition to the Kahuna Kollection. 925 yards of colorful knitting goodness. It's here at Chelsea Yarns for the rest of today or can be acquired for $75 and shipped anywhere USPS delivers on this awesome planet. Enjoy the day! #chelsealuxe #chelseayarns #magicyarnball #redbank #redbankmike #yarnporn #yarns #knit #knittersofinstagram #thebigkahuna

"Yesterday's home runs don't win today's game." Babe Ruth. The Big Bambino wasn't just a pretty face in pinstripes. He performed to the best of his ability then woke up the next day and did it again. We have the same attitude here at the Kahuna factory. Can't rest on yesterday's laurels. New day, new Kahuna. Meet "Grand Funk" a mighty ball of 4 colors of Chelsea Luxe Sock each wound 4 times! It's 1400 yards, hot off the press and now chilling on the table at @chelseayarns excited to be part of the NJ Woolwalk! #redbank #redbankmike #chelseayarns #chelsealuxe #knittersofinstagram #crochetersofinstagram #yarn #magicyarnball #hookednj

"Well, what did you expect in an opera? A happy ending?" Bugs Bunny 🐰. Expectations management is key. Even to rabbits. It's cool 😎 to expect good stuff from a Kahuna though. They deliver. Here is "Radar Love" constructed from 7 colors of Chelsea Luxe DK each wound twice. It's 750 yards of DK mojo and can be shipped anywhere in USA/Canada for $110. Just say you want it and it's in tomorrow's mail. I will be at @chelseayarns in Kahuna City, NJ (aka Red Bank) for the NJ Wool Walk tomorrow and Sunday so pop in and say "hello". Over and out. #chelsealuxe #chelseayarns #redbankmike #redbank #knittersofinstagram #knitting #crochetersofinstagram #crochet #yarn #yarns #thebigkahuna

"We take the shortest route to the puck and arrive in ill humor." Bobby Clarke. It was not all fun and games for me at @chelseayarns today during day 1 of the NJ Wool Walk. I rolled up my sleeves, tightened up my already too tight belt, strapped on the proverbial Kahuna helmet and fired up the winder. Christina graciously provided me with some amazing colors of Chelsea Luxe Sock yarn even though she was all out winding for the Wool Walk - thanks Chopper - you were so efficient I almost thought you had a ghost πŸ‘» dyer! So I am proud to announce "Freeway Jam" (yes..Jeff Beck reference) 8 colors of Chelsea Luxe Sock each color wound twice - one is 1375 yards and the other 1450 - $120'and $125 accordingly and will be in the Chelsea Yarns store tomorrow. Come see us! #redbank #redbankmike #thebigkahuna #chelsealuxe #chelseayarns #knittersofinstagram #knitting #knit #crochet #crochetgrannystripe #yarn #yarns

"When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on." FDR Today these Kahunas are coming to you live from Kahuna City, NJ (aka Red Bank) where they are participating in day 1 of the NJ Wool Walk at @chelseayarns. While folks are Wool Walking I will be winding more of these big balls of yarn fun. Enjoy the day! #hookednj #chelsealuxe #chelseayarns #redbank #redbankmike #knittersofinstagram #knitting #crochet #crochetgrannystripe #crochetersofinstagram #yarnporn #yarn #thebigkahuna

"Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting." Bernard Meltzer. I pounded out the last of my Led Zep inspired Kahunas for Saturday's trunk show at @knittycity with my favorite knitter @chelseayarns. Say "hello" to "Misty Mountain Hop" which is constructed from 7 funky colors of Chelsea Luxe Sock each wound twice. Man, it's cool 😎 and was wound with Led Zeppelin IV banging in the background and my thoughts bouncing between my Kahuna, Jimmy Page's guitar and that Zabar's bagel with lox and cream cheese I will devour before Knitty City opens on Saturday!!!! Mmmmmmm. #chelsealuxe #chelseayarns #crochetgrannystripe #crochetersofinstagram #crochet #knittersofinstagram #knitting #yarn #yarnporn #nycknitters #nycknits #redbankmike #redbank #chelsealuxe #chelseayarns
