Color #8 NAMED: Mermaids Go Walking

This is another one of my very favorite new colors of Paca-Peds. I can't wait to knit this one up -- I'm thinking little boy socks and mittens. Although a nice pair of mommy socks would look pretty good too. Hit us with your best skein names between now and Wednesday.

I don't know about you guys, but I can't believe we on have one more set of colors after these two. This contest has been so much fun and we have loved getting to know so many new friends. And for those who have asked, the new colorways are shipping out to your LYSs next week. If they haven't gotten them in yet or if your LYS doesn't carry Alpaca Yarn Company yarns (gasp!), let us know and we will be sure to contact them. You can always reach us by email, or here on the blog. Happy naming!!!

1.) Blue Mountain Summer
2.) Tide Pool Reflections
3.) Kiss the Girl

Note: The third is a tip-of-the-hat to The Little Mermaid. The first is for the Blue Mountain ridge that stretches across Pennsylvania.

This is my favorite so far, and I think I may buy it no matter who wins the naming contest! ;)
