ETA. The response is so wonderful. We are compiling our list right now. It is going to be hard, really hard. So hard in fact that I'm quite relieved that you are the ones with the last word on this one.
Look for this tomorrow, say about noonish.
Thanks for playing these suggestions and thoughts are really quite lovely. Whenever a comment comes through it comes directly to my email. So everyday I get to read a few colour stories. A treat.
I'm assuming that most of you have received your sock club packages by now, except for our dear Hazel of course.
Just in case:
I'm putting a spoiler button on this post for now just to make sure we don't ruin anyone's surprise.
If you read the the colour band on your yarn and the dyer's notes you know that there is some excitement afoot.
So...what is the name of this colourway?
This go around that is your job. Tell us what you think this skein with no name should be called and then tell us why. You can be short and to the point, or wax tonally poetic about your inspiration for the name you're submiitng. You have until December 17th to decide.
Your job won't stop there. We have to pick a winner, right? You know how hard a time I have with that aspect of this and since we're all in this Rockin' Sock Club thing together, I'm going to ask you notorious sock knitters to decide.
Team Blue Moon and I will pick a few (a depravedDyer needs her secrets) and then we'll ask you to vote.
One lucky winner will receive a RSC 2011 membership. And because I'm me, we'll also give yarny type prizes out for the runners-up.
So... I believe that outlines all the details pretty clearly.
Be creative, have fun!!
