Free Yarn--DON'T POST COMMENTS ALLLL DONE!

I have two lovely new colorways and no names. I'm feeling a bit brainless i guess. Post suggestions for names and I will be giving several skeins of Castle's Rough Yarn away for free. (Rough Yarn is a slightly rougher yarn than my typical sock yarn and would work up lovely for felting purses or such. You can see pictures of some colorways here in my etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=11974&section_id=5002440).



Here's the yarn! What suggestions do you have? Be sure to post a name so i can identify who you are if you win. the names will be picked by me, but the winners will be picked at random, as well as those who pick the winning names. I will be giving away 1 skein of yarn (past the winning two) for every 25 people who post suggestions. So invite your friends and neighbors! (up to about 15 skeins cuz then i'll run out!)

Also visit my new website: http://castlefibers.com/ for more yarn to look at!

Contest will run through Jan. 23rd.

Oooh! Oooh! This is a contest I have to enter, that is some lovely yarn.

Saffron Curry

-and-

Blueberry Muffin


P.S. I'm Jabberwocky on Ravelry.

Dena said...

How about "Fall in the Berkshires" for the top two and "Carnival Cotton Candy" for the bottom two? I have admired your knitting on Ravelry for a while now. Thanks for the chance at free yarn! Dena aka, ILOVEEWE on ravelry

Smitten Knitten said...

Pretty yarn! If I were naming them I'd think Phoenix for the orange/brown/gold colors and Iris for the blue/purple.

auntien said...

I like the saffron curry suggestion, and phoenix was actually one that came to mind for me when I saw it as well.
So I will go for
Smoldering
and
It runs in my veins
Very beautiful stuff you are offering...I love almost all of your colourways.

Lovely yarns! The first one reminds me of sunrises in Bangkok - so my suggestion is "Bangkok sunrise". The second one, believe it or not, reminds me of sunsets off Nushagak beach in Dillingham, Alaska - so my name would be "Nushagak Sunset" (or, hmmmm, how about "Alaska Sunset"... That's 3, *sigh*, oh well ...

Top: Golden Sunset

Gorgeous colors.

Sarah said...

The first one has lovely tones of red that remind me of the varied texture in red hair, and the richly colored light peering through the trees at dusk. Combined with the lovely pinks and dark purples, this skein of yarn yearns to be called:

Auburn Sunset

The second colorway, while it does remind me of berries (and gives me the urge to name it something obscure like Dionysus' Wine), on second glance I see a lot of gorgeous blues and even some white. These colors combine remind me of a cold winter's morning, when the snow lays thick on the ground and the sunrise is only noticed by the lightening of the sky, with its blackness slowly turning into purple, then blue. This yarn's name is:

Winter Morning

My name is LadyDanio on Ravelry. :)

Rhapsody in Blues

Gorgeous yarns!

DayPurler on Rav!!

dayzofrain said...

Rav name: MrsLolo

1st: Prairie Sunset
it really doesn't need an explanation

2nd: Raina's Requiem

I know that's kind of "Whaa??" but I think it works. The colors are those those worn traditionally as distinctive for royalty and "Raina" means "Queen". Requiem because of the blending of the colors seems perfect and requiem means "rhythmic series of musical tones arranged to a pleasing effect". So I love blues/purple hues and think that if color could be music- your blending would be a beautiful song.

kay.skay.790 said...

The yellow/orange one I think looks autumny so I was thinking Falling Leaves, St. Martin's Summer, or Autumn Berries.

The blue/purple reminds me of berries so Blueberry Parfait, Berries n' Cream, or Berry Bash.

They're both lovely and both "me" colors. I suggest Copper Penny for the autumn colored one and Grape Slurpee for the purple/blue one.

Oops! Forgot to say I'm sticksnshtick on Ravelry. My choice for the lovely yarn is Copper Penny for the autumn colored one, and Berry Slurpee for the blue/purple one.

Hi,
I love the colors, very vibrant and i could think of a thousand things, but i thought you might like these.

for the first It reminded me of the 'flame' that is part of the wood on my 1812 violin.

Sapele - type of wood used in harp making


and the second made me think of winter moon rise, and my favorite colors.

Corcra - means purple in Gaelic

the colors look exotic, i thought the names would match.

I would go with ... Maple Leaf(ves) for the first and Morning Fog for the second.

Can't knock a free yarn competition:
"Scenes of Autumn" or "Seems Like Autumn" for the browns
The purples - well purple is the colour of original sin - can't go wrong with that! "Original Sin"
Thanks for the opportunity. If I get anymore blinding flashes of inspiration, I'll be back!

Furry with Ruffles said...

Here's another for the purple - "Summer Berries" - reminiscent of blueberries and mulberries all squooshed together in a summer pudding - yum!

beautyredefined said...

Wow, apparently the names that first came to me aren't terribly original. I was going to say Pumpkin Harvest and Wildberry, but I'll have to be more creative to win.

How about Catnap for the first one. (I get visions of napping in a rapidly dwindling patch of sun during an autumn sunset...)

And... Blue Raspberry Popsicle Tongue for the second.

Shera said...

what beautiful colours!

For the first one I would say Pheonix because the colours remind me of the story of the Pheonix raising from the ashes in a torrent of oranges.

the second one midsummer's evening as I think the colours are very berry like, but at the same time we have sunsets similar to the colour way as well!

aka lemonblondie (ravelry)

Shera said...

ohh just looked at the other names and someone already put down pheonix!

so if I can change that then I would say it is autumn blaze

I love both of those lovely colors!! And who can resist a yarny giveaway!!

The first reminds me of Curry Powder (my own blend)with lots of red pepper and cumin!!

The blue reminds of a bouquet of Lilacs and Tulips!!

Oldlthrnecksgirl said...

Hi there, I love the "rough" colourway and it could be called "Fiodior", Gaelic for "weaver". The second might be "Gethin", the Gaelic for "dusky".

Colorado Sunset -- because it reminds me of how the sun looks on the rocks and landscape in Colorado, revealing warm and sometimes intense shades of color.

Cape Cod Morning Berries -- because it reminds me of picking berries in a backyard one summer in Cape Cod. Nothing better than getting up and picking some berries and bringing them in to eat for breakfast. Heaven.

Eskimimi said...

The top one makes me think of copper kettles and harvest sunsets, so I think 'Copper Harvest' sounds nice, as if yo were to harvest and bundle up all of the different hues of copper together.

For the bottom one I looked for a long time and thought of the hues of heather in a field, and the shifting tones and saturations of smoke, so 'Heather Smoke' makes me think of the changing tones of the yarn.

Lovely colours!

The top one is so evocative of Autumn leaves, I couldn't think of anything else! So my suggestion would be "Autumn Breeze".

The bluey, purple one is wonderful too, many people have suggested Berry related names, but for me I thought of flowers particularly the varied purples of the thistle, so my suggestion is just "Thistle".

These are such beautiful colors! For the first one, "October Skyline" or "Liquid Bronze" and for the second, "The Grapes of Wrath."

Sorry if I repeated any, I purposely didn't read any of the suggestions...

P.S. My name's colette1819 on Ravelry. :)

I would name the top one SUMMER SUNSET and the second RISING DUSK. Both make me think of the beauty in the sky. my ravelry name is mieumieu - never done this before so I don't know if it will show.

Mizzle said...

Those are *so* beautiful!

I'd go for 'Mahogany' and 'Purple Dusk'... Not sure about the latter, but the former was easy. :)

Oh, those are such pretty yarns!

I'm one of the few that does not see anything "blueberry" about the second one though, so here are my ideas!

First yarn:
Midnight Bonfire

Second yarn:
Raisin in the Sun

I am killerk on Ravelry. Thanks! :)

2) Purple Reign (I love the royal purple colour in the bottom ones)
