New Contest!!!! Name This Colorway!

Contest Ended October 2008

OK, I have a new contest going. Last night i was at the dye pot and thought using red purple and brown would look beautiful together. I know sounds like a funky combination, but hey I'm a fun and funky

Any how, I am running a contest to see who can come up with the name I like best to call this colorway. The rules are:

1. If you can't say it to a second grader, in church or to your Granny, don't use it in the name.

2. To enter you can submit your name idea in the comments section to this post.

3. In the event of a duplicate entry, the person who first submitted the name has the valid entry.

4. Contest runs until the end of October 2008!

Prize is $20 worth of fiber or yarn from my Etsy shop !

Kentucky Wool Festival

Yesterday, Diane, Kim, Pat & I helped with a sheep to scarf demonstration at the Kentucky Wool Festival. There were sheep, goats, cows and alpacas. As well as craft vendors of all types. There were sheep shearing demonstrations and probably a whole bunch of stuff that I missed out on. We had a ton of fun.

I entered a few skeins of yarn into the handspun competition. Happy to say I had a few ribbon winners:) And here they are! Drum roll please.................

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
