May 16, 2012

Hi Darlings!

So, I know in the past I’ve had yarn naming contests on my facebook page ( But I didn’t realize that I could have lost the whole Darn Good Yarn page there by having these fun contests. So, here’s the deal: Post your idea for what these color names should be as comment on this blog.

Be sure to complete your email address when you post your comment here so I can contact you if you win! The winners will get the yarn color named from their entry and they will get a free skein sent to them!

The other thing I ask is that you also “like” and share Darn Good Yarn on facebook because that’s how I’m able to continue to keep new yarns always coming in and keep the fun going on! My facebook page is: (you can friend me personally too–I  love that! and share this with your friends.


I’ll announce the winners on facebook and on this blog.

Good luck!


P.S. If you click on the yarn pictures below you will have the opportunity to purchase them on sale right now during the contest!
