NAME THIS COLORWAY CONTEST!!

New Contest....

NAME THIS COLORWAY!!


OK, I have a new contest going. I just can't seem to pull a name for this fun and wildly colored combination out of my itsy brain.  Mom stopped by the house and was practically drooling over this one.  Very bright colors on the superfine softness of 80's merino top!

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 NOVEMBER!  Just in time for the holidays.

Prize is $10 credit for fiber or yarn or what ever from my Etsy shops

hmmm, how about "tangerine grove"? the colors make me think about blue skies, green trees, and orange fruit!

I'm really bad at coming up with names, as you can see. Mostly I just wanted to let you know that I posted about your contest on WiKnit (http://wiknit.blogspot.com), my knitting contest blog

Becky said...

My first thought was "Autumn Skies".

Timiae said...

Ice Cream Truck or Sherbety

Kristen said...

"Bluebird meadow" is my suggestion. It's so bright and pretty!

wenat said...

My first thought was Bird of Paradise -- the plant. See this link for a photo.

These colors remind me of a holiday exclusive for The Netherlands: Queen's Day. The Orange stands symbol for our Royal Family, the green for the fresh grass in April, and the blue for festive skies. It is a mostly outdoors celebrated holiday.

As name I'd go for: Hurray for Orange :)

D said...

It looks rather like a "Riot at the Golden Peacock" to me.

Spring Swing.

I know that this will make people think I'm nuts, but I saw those colors and thought of a little girl in her new spring outfit. She's all dressed pretty (maybe being taken to Grandma's or something?), and she's outside on a wooden tree swing in her pretty dress.

Turtle said...

nice colorway, would love to see it spun up!

Fall Perfection

Sandcastles

Sunshiney Day

the colors so remind me of nature, a perfect blue sky, or sand , leaves, green of trees or grasses. All happy!

danielle said...

Springtime Basket....

Emily said...

Easter egg hunt

katerina said...

How about "Summer Fruit Salad" It reminds me of the blueberry, cantalope and honeydew salads of the summer.
My other suggestion would be "fruit strip lollipop" for similar reasons (and a bit of a reminder of the gum!)

Mary Kay said...

My name for this bright happy yarn-to-be is Serendipity

Beverly said...

Love this contest:

I like
mosaic or
stained glass

because that's what it looks like to me and you can say it to your granny while she's in church!!!

Sheila B said...

My suggestion: Parakeet.

brownbear said...

My first thought when I saw it was Easter. Something like Easter basket or Easter grass or Easter morning or Easter bunny or Ostara or something with the name spring in it, Springtide or Spring Season, Easter Season.

Darcys Knotty Knitter said...

My 4 year old daughter Alora wants to call it grace.Hugs Darcy

Rachael said...

"Florida November" or "November in Florida"... Because I see all these colors in my own neighborhood right now. Brown/orange leaves (on some trees and on the ground), green grass and green leaves (on most trees), and blue, blue sky.

pixelsnglue said...

This sounds strange, but my first thought was toddlers, something about that green.

Go-Go-Tots
Posh-Tots

Sharon Rose said...

"Lazy Summer Days" or "Day at the Beach?" Beautiful!

squiggi said...

I like "sand and sea"
It has all the colors.
cute kitty, by the way

Knit Lunabud Knit said...

Gerry of Dreamfiber on Etsy came up with the name:
Sea Glass Beach

I am just posting it for her.

Trudy said...

GOODNESS--that's edible! I thought of cotton candy right away. How about SPRINGY COTTON CANDY? I've posted in my blog, as well, http://knitpickingit.blogspot.com

RC said...

looks like Smarties to me- you know, the sweet/tart candies in a little roll? LOVE it!

Debbie said...

How about Melon Pie? or Alhoa? I love the flower colors in Hawaii. Thanks Debbie

spininmamma4 said...

Maybe Margaritaville (you have Mango, Moonlight, and Original ;-)), or Beach Bronze, Beach Umbrella, or last one- I know what boys like 'cause it looks like boy's colors to me :-)

Pumpkin Potpurri

Kay Karen said...

"Orange You Happy" - this roving makes me smile. Absolutely LOVE your colorways - I need to get back to the Etsy site now & see what I can't live without.

moncherie1959 said...

When I look at this I think of a meadow in the mountains. You have the blue for the sky and the green for the grasses and flower stems and the orange reminds me of orange meadow flowers. So I woould call this Mountain Meadows. You did an awesome job dyeing!

anna said...

It instantly reminded me of oranges,lemons, limes, and blueberries...so my name guess is:
Citrus and Blueberries

Judi said...

Ocean Rhapsody. It just looks like music in the waves to me. Judi mor_rich@att.net

Lunayah said...

When I look at this I can imagine what the happy spring colors must be like from a bunny's point of view, so my idea is "Bunny's Bliss"

lunayah said...

Oops, forgot to add lunayah@embarqmail.com

|chee-uh| said...

I love naming contests.
How about one of these:
Tangerine Dream
Tangelo
Otter Pop
Popsicle
Juicy Fruit
Fruittata
Limoncello
Limone
Blue Citrus

|chee-uh| said...

Oops - munkiknits @ yahoo.com

toomanyblogs said...

I think it could be called "Jelly Belly"

Jen C said...

How about "comfy chameleon"? That was the first thought that popped into my head. Second thought was "earth, wind, and fire", but I really like the chameleon one better.

Take care,
Jen

Jello confetti

Beverly said...

i don't know how often we can post, but i was thinking about this again and there are two other names i like:

kaleidoscope
prism

i think i'm done

jm said...

I agree with previous posts--this yarn reminds me of candy. So how about Candy Shop? Or Shoppe if you're feeling 'old fashioned.'--jlatten04 (at) hotmail (dot) com

Aster said...

River's Edge
or
Meadowbrook
or
Earth and Sky
or
Oasis (Tropical Oasis?)

It is beautiful, by the way.

How about Sherbert Parfait??

Deb

CraftyChick128 said...

I have several suggestions, I hope that's okay! Here they are:

- Sherbet
- Autumn Forest

For some reason it made me think of the last portion of this nursery-rhyme, too: "Sugar & spice & everything nice, that's what little girls are made of. Snakes & snails & puppy-dog's tails, that's what little boys are made of." I couldn't come up with a good name that referenced it, though.

It's such a lovely colorway! Can't wait to see somebody spin it up!

Marilyn said...

I see citrus, berries, and melon; so, what about fruit splash, fruitcicle, fruit compote, fruit salad, etc.

Deeners said...

Calypso Breeze
Surf and Turf

It is a beautiful colorway. I hope you find the name you are looking for.

crochetgurl said...

Sour Apple Bubblegum?

Delighted Hands said...

It is a dreamy colorway whatever the name-my choice-
Shoreline

hopalong682003 said...

Ohhh...I hope I'm not too late! The yarn is beautiful. It reminds me of all the great colors from one of my favorite shows...

Muppet!!!

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:)
