Prize Patrol: Vote for your favorite New Color Name!!!

It's Spring!!! Nothing makes us happier then seeing the alpacas playing in the fields, being able to wear a cute shawl instead of a big bulky parka and sitting and knitting in the sunshine.

To celebrate the warming of the weather we want to enlist your help to name our new colorways of Paca-Paints. Yes, surprise! Our rock star dyer, Tasha, has been madly swirling the dyepots and she has created six new shades of our favorite DK yarn.
All you need to do is look at the photo and choose your favorite of the two names listed. Everyone who posts a comment on the blog is eligible to win a skein of that specific colorway. Be sure to give us your blog link, email or ravelry ID so we can get in contact with you when you win!



We are going to kick off the festivities with Angela's favorite new blend, which up until now has been named the ever-so-glamorous "color #407".
Your choices are:

1) Springtime in Paris
2) Wisteria Way

Leave us a comment and we will tally up the votes. Please only comment once. All comments are eligible for our randomly drawn prize. Thanks for your input!!!

Wisteria Way

Jan L said...

My first inclination when seeing the yarn and name choices was also Wisteria Way. Not sure why, but just like it better. I see I'm not alone.

Marlitharn said...

I vote for Wisteria Way. Something about the yarn just makes me think of southern springtime, with heat and flowers blooming and sitting on the front porch in rocking chairs. Lovely yarn!

Springtime in Paris is my choice. It makes me think of flowers in misty rain.

Springtime in Paris! I'd be more likely to buy a yarn with Paris in the name. :)

Used to be a house near me where the front walkway was covered in wisteria....so, of course, my vote is for Wisteria Way!
Then again, I've never been to Paris in the Springtime...so, who knows?! It could very well look like that.

I love the name Wisteria Way...

It does remind me of the beautiful Wisteria I saw at Jordan's Pond in Acadia National Park.

InJuneau said...

Although I like the alliteration of Wisteria Way, I just like the name Springtime in Paris better. It sounds more sophisticated to me I guess, and I think of alpaca yarns as sophisticated.

My votes goes to Springtime in Paris....very elegant sounding:-)

Lil Bean said...

Totally Wisteria Way! Suits the colourway exatcly, besides being a catchy name. Springtime in Paris to me would have reds and more vibrant colours (like this painting: http://www.jodyoriginals.net/Springtime%20in%20Paris2.JPG)

Francesca said...

Wisteria Way - the colours are much more that than springtime in Paris - which sounds lighter/more pastelly

I vote for Spring in Paris. Don't know why. Probably as I'm not a native English speaker, I'm not sure what Wisteria is or should remind of. leilalieva @ ravelry
