aurora borealis



Anna, of Knitting in Nature, has a contest that ends tomorrow, but I want to post about it quickly anyway. You can go to her blog here to read about it and see the wonderful colorway she wants to name. Below are the contest rules.


"NAME THAT COLORWAY" RULES:

1
. First, come up with the perfect colorway name. Jokesters might gain extra merit, as long as it's to good humor. Post on THIS post's comment page ONLY!! Thanks. :)

2. Post these rules on your blog & your colorway idea. That way, no one will use something like it, by mere freak accident. Who ever finds out about this contest on your blog must refer you on this comment page below, before participating in the contest. (This is kind of like Lotus' Knits contest idea. But we will use a poll too...)
-->If you see your name (or blog address) on my comment page below, you can add another colorway name idea! The more referals for you, the better! Good luck to you all!

3. The top 3 best names will be put on a poll, so you all can vote!

4. Contest ends: Sunday, July 29th @ midnight!


I choose to name her wonderful colorway creation: Aurora Borealis. Look at the colorway below with the photos of the aurora borealis. You must agree that the swirling and changing of colors matches nicely with the dyes in the fiber.












(added at a later date): **Sadly...my fantastic name was not picked. La sigh!

I think that is an ideal choice for a name

The house elf is a pattern by Alan Dart , I think it is called Christmas Gnome. If you look on the internet you will find it . Simply Knitting ( magazine ) have reprinted the supplement and I think it costs about £5.50 . p & p to USA ,alternatively , if you let me have your name and address , I could send a photo copy ?
