Here's a recent exchange on the Lorna's Laceaholics group on Ravelry.
amigtov: I was scrolling through the color swatches online while yarn shopping, and I was startled to see that a lot of the colorway names for Lorna’s Laces yarns are locations in El Dorado County, CA. It was so bizarre because I lived there since I was a child, for more than 20 years. My parents still live there. I kind of squealed while reading off the colors to my husband (he just rolled his eyes, lol). Does someone at Lorna’s come from that area?
amallen: Spot on! Lorna’s Laces was originally located in that area! In 2003 Lorna’s moved to Chicago and we started naming colors after Chicago locations.
keeperofbear: there’s a place in Chicago named Zombie Bar B Que?
amallen: Yep! It is right next to the Turtle Rodeo but if you reach the Unicorn Parade you have gone to far!
keeperofbear: geez! i better turn around! I’m all the way down by Robot Overlord!
amallen: careful he bites!!
keeperofbear: got it. staying in the car and locking the doors. :-)
amallen: good plan!
