Color #1 NAMED: Spring in my Step

Okay yarn-fans, here it is, put on your thinking caps and help us come up with a name for our first of ten new Paca-Peds colorways.

Just comment to this thread with up to 3 suggestions. The winner for this colorway will be announced on Monday, December 8th and two new colorways will be unveiled and the fun will start all over again.

I'm going to toss in some 'fine print' now, so bear with me.

You can win more than once (we aren't going to penalize you for having mad-yarn-naming-skillz); all prizes will be shipped by January 9, 2009; The Alpaca Yarn Company withholds the right to discontinue this contest at any time; TAYC is not responsible for any technical issues that blogger or blogspot may have with your ability to comment; in the event that two people suggest the same name, the person who suggested first will be declared the winner; Winning names become the property of TAYC to use and distribute as they see fit. Scheduled contest end date, December 20, 2008.

Okay, that's it, have fun, name lots, tell your friends & be sure to check back here often for updates!

Hollywood for this colourway

I have a whole state theme when I looked at your yarns. This one screamed Hollywood to me,,, another shouted out Sonoma. How cool would it be to have all your yarns in this group named for Californian places? "The California Collection" then the next could be "The New York Collection" etc,,,

Best of luck with your beautiful yarns,,, Lizzy
