Thank you to everyone who played along in our matchy matchy game, you’re all winners in my book!

I went through today and did a count and chose the the first four knitters to get the most number correct.  Sorry for the confusion on Saturdays’ post. I obviously did not think that one all the way through. Next time I will finish that cup of coffee before hitting the post button.  I chose our winners from everyone who guessed before the colorways were posted.

Our winners are… 

Anna > 8 correct matches.
 erb2007 > 8 correct matches.
 yarnderWoman  > 8 correct matches.
 Tru > 7 corect matches

( Thank you Janis for catching that my numbers were off. )

Congrats winners. if you email she’ll hook you up with you prize.

Here are our colorway names and the who, what, where, when, and why of them.

1. Sabertooth Caterpillar :  Rhonda and Heather came up with this one and I think it’s one of the best names ever. When I close my eyes and envision a Sabertooth Caterpillar I see a dirty green that camouflages well, unless of course, said Sabertooth Caterpillar is making it’s way across a sunny yellow pillow with hot pink stripes. And… we all know that Sabertooth’s are way to color conscious to get near hot pink wearing that green coat. Stealth and fabulous is our Sabertooth Caterpillar!
2. Mauvelous:  The absolutely only name for such a lovely Mauve!  End of story.
3. Pistachio:  I’ve almost named several of our green shaded solids Pistachio but they didn’t have exactly the right balance of yellow. They were always just a little too blue. Sad for them, really. I Love this green! Pistachio might be my second favorite green, right next to Pond Scum, as my first, of course.
4. Chillaxin’:  As calm and relaxing as a cool dip in a clear lake on a hot summer day. One calm and seriously cool blue.
5. Passive Aggressive Green: Kermit’s right, it’s not easy being green. I think green has always been just a wee bit envious of it’s blue counterpart. A green that edges towards blue or a blue that’s tinged with green…it’s a close call on this one. I do think green has come out the winner on this particular blue green struggle for hue dominance.
6. Big Brain Blue: I honestly don’t know. It’s just what popped in my head when I saw this blue on yarn. I’m wondering if I should be worried about it.
7. Strawberry Fields Forever: Is this red a true ripe and juicy strawberry red? Almost. It might be a day old strawberry red. When I see this red I hear John, Paul, George and Ringo offering to take me down to Strawberry Fields where nothing is real and there’s nothing to get hung about… .
8. Sea Foam Home:  On a very cloudy day on the Pacific Northwest Coast, a
waves swells and builds, then… right before it breaks onto the sand into foamy bubbly joy, there is this watery green.
9.  What’saaabi:  Have you ever bought wasaabi powder? You add water and get that hot nasal clearing yumminess. This green is that color. FYI: It will not clear your sinuses. Sorry!
10. Bladerunner: If a blade of grass could run really,really, super speedy fast, so fast that, it would break world records and maybe even sound barriers? Fast right? This is the color it would be.
11. Gourdy:  I’ve been trying to get this particular shade of pumpkin orange for a little while now. When I realized I had it I called all the barn chicks over to see.  Rhonda said as soon as she saw it that it looked like a Gourdy and it stuck.  I know pumpkins are not really gourds and mostly gourds are greens and browns. You have to admit, it looks like a Gourdy, doesn’t it?

    So close! I had 6. I overthought it. I knew Gourdy was the orange but got hung up with the true color of gourds. 🙁 Gotta get me some chillaxin’!!
