We're in naming mode around here. We finally picked the new colors that we're bringing to TNNA in June and gave them all names today. But, we have one last thing to name, a brand spanking new alpaca/silk blend yarn, and we decided it would be fun to let one of you name it for us. So why not host a little naming contest?!?!
Here are the details. Send your entry to yarn AT lornaslaces DOT net with the subject line reading "New Yarn Name". We'll narrow the choices down to our three favorites by April 30. We'll post the top three on May 1 and let you vote for the winner. Voting will close at 5:00PM central time on May 15th.
In case of multiple entries for the same name, we'll use a number generator to pick the ultimate winner.
What's the prize, you ask? How does $500 of Lorna's Laces yarn sound? You heard right boys and girls, five hundred bucks at retail pricing.
Now that that’ s out of the way, let me tell you a little about it to get you started!
"Yarn X" is a 70% baby alpaca and 30% silk blend. It's a DK four ply. I like it knit up on US size 5's and I'm getting 22 sts/4 inches. This yarn is uber soft. Squishy too. Cuddly even.
It's nekkid in this picture, but rest assured we'll be painting it in all of Lorna's Laces glorious colorways. I wanted you to see it this way so the color didn't influence your creative genius.
Please keep in mind that we're not Publisher's Clearinghouse. Contests and giveaways aren't what we do every day. I'm trying to make things as simple and fair as I can. You could probably find a loophole to exploit, but let's try and play nice and just let this all unfold for what it is...fun, fun, fun!
