Blog Contest '09!

The moment I am sure you have all been waiting for: The annual blog contest here at LavenderSheep!

This year I have come up with something new! Actually in reality I need your help. This year there are a lot of fiber related events going on, which makes me very very happy! The trouble is that I have a lot of yarn and a lot of colorways. How am I going to choose what colors to dye up for the shows? This is where you come in! I have over 50 colorways and a few new ones I want to try out. So I would like to narrow it down to 20 colorways to dye exclusively for the shows! I still will have the other colors available for custom order and the odd skein I have already dyed up.

So this is what you need to do:
  • Visit the colorways page on my site (they all have pictures and descriptions)
  • Pick 3 of your favorite colorways
  • Post those 3 here in the comments!
As an added incentive there will be prizes! For every 10 people that comment I will draw a winner! All I can say for now is that it will be something special and there may be yarn involved. You have one week to comment! I will announce the winner(s) and the top 20 colorways on my blogiversary (January 13th)!

My choices surprise me a little becuase I'd usually go for at least one blue.

Smokey Rose

It wasn't easy to narrow it down to these, so I can see the spot you're in.
