Let's all celebrate: Sock yarn giveaway



I saved enough to buy the camera. I think I am in love with it. So is Zach. Nikon D40, has enough bells and whistles for me.

My legs are still screaming from working the extra hours, but it was worth it.

Let's all celebrate. Here's a little sock yarn contest:

Name the yarn, I believe it is Koigu, with a cute name for the colorway or something.

I'll pick a winner by the name that strikes my fancy: no random raffle this time.

Go ahead. Name that sock yarn. Two nice skiens.

I'm not sock knitting again anytime soon. I want to give it away.

I'll pick a winner on June 7th.


I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

It looks like "Figgy Pudding" to me--all dark and figgy with yummy custard sauce dripping over it. Gosh I'm hungry suddenly!

Katherine said...

BTW your new camera does a great job! I like the way the background drops out a little and the foreground is sharp and focused.

The colorway should be called Banana Split:) Yummy and here is a recipe for making a Banana Split:http://www.recipezaar.com/Traditional-Banana-Split-139388

It reminds me of "Indian Corn" or something like "Autumn in the Midwest"

Grace said...

Butter, Honey and grape Jam!

It is really beautiful!

Miss-Knit said...

I think it should be called 'Harvest', for it's earthy colours!

Chris said...

eggplant parmesan, or maybe easter egg hunt Love the sock yarn--berry pretty--could that be a name?

Amy said...

Gourmet Sorbet.

Gayle said...

I would call it Nutmeg! Very pretty no matter what it is called.

Summer's Berries........

Lynn said...

It reminds me of egg plant parmesean so that is my name for it.

Toast Toppings!

Leslie said...

To me it looks like Loyola colors, so I'm saying, Loyola at Midnight!
(Can you tell I have colleges on my brain?) BTW, My daughter, Lauren, (works at 3BF) goes to DePaul, too. I'm hope Zach likes it as much as she does!

Heather said...

"Clafoutis"

Turtle said...

congrats on the camera! A good camera makes all the diff!

Love the colorway, it makes me think of "Indian Corn" or "Indian Maize"

Turtle said...

lol, ok, i just read others and saw i am not the only one with the indian corn idea...smile, so how about "Indian Maize or Autumn Maize"

Breien in Lansingerland said...

Chocolate and Banana Ice Cream, with Blueberry sauce.

The suggestion came from one of my kids ;-)

ikkinlala said...

"Curious George." The brown for George and the yellow for the Man with the Yellow Hat.

evergreenknits said...

Mmmm, makes me think of "Rum Raisin" ice cream!

p.s. I've posted about your contest on WiKnit

Sharon Rose said...

How about "Deep Space Sun?" I guess the science geek in me won out. :)

Thanks for a beautiful contest!

KT said...

My first thought was "Pansies"... it looks like the riot of pansies I have in my front garden every year, particularly the yellow/purple ones. Other thoughts on this theme would be "Jump Up" (for Johnny jump-ups) and "Viola tricolor" (the scientific name)

Elaine said...

How happy-looking!

I'd name it "sunshine and lupines"

And congrats on the Nikon - WOW!

wenat said...

Your yarn totally rhymes with this flickr photo:

Autumn corn would be a great name for it.

Susie said...

Indian Corn! Love the colorway.

Jo said...

Sun-dried raisins

Sarah said...

This yarn reminds me of two lovely things. First,a late summer August afternoon with a mouthful of sun-warmed berries. So maybe, August Berry Afternoon, or even Blueberries for Sal (a kid's book).
And, of course, violets' larger siblings, "viola"

Kristen said...

"Heirloom Corn"
"Heirloom Maize"
"Pansy Parade"

Marlyn said...

Celtic Prince.

danielle said...

I got the Nikon D40 for Christmas and love it!!!!!

Kim said...

I'll say Indian Corn as well. It comes in all of those colors!

Shirley said...

Lemon Licorice

Heide said...

Indian Corn was immediately what I thought of, but several people have already said that. What about King Louie... it has a regal look to it as well.
