It’s not your grandma’s yarn! Reasonably priced, high-quality yarn that helps women in India and Nepal and gets rid of waste.

So, I know in the past I’ve had yarn naming contests on my facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/dgyarn). 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: http://www.facebook.com/dgyarn (you can friend me personally too–I love that! http://www.facebook.com/darngoodyarn) and share this with your friends.
I’ll announce the winners on facebook and on this blog.
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!

OK this was so tough. The one terrible downside to these contests is choosing. I personally hate it because there are usually some good ones out there! This time it was really tough because I had over 300 entries… um holy smokes! And they were all super inventive. But alas, I had to take a big-girl-pill and pick one even though I felt like kicking and screaming.
So, below are the names of the winners of the silk sari ribbon color naming challenge!
Congrats and stay tuned for the next contest, you could be the next winner! But for today, these winners will get a free skein of the color they won for!
And for this week, these new colors will be on sale! So get ‘em while they’re hot!

I just got 6 wonderful new and exclusive recycled silk sari ribbons in yesterday. They need your help in getting named! So, not only will you get your name published with the yarn but you will also get a free skein of the yarn if you are chosen the color’s winner!.
So to enter, just comment to this post with the number and the color name you think each yarn should have. If you would like to purchase any of the yarns now, just click on any of the pictures to be redirected!
Good luck my dears– this contest will end on April 3rd

Happy Winter my dears!
The first day of winter and I am getting blasted with snow here! Poor Mikey had to drive to work in this mess.
Did you see the new “How to make a tutu” post I set up this morning? If not, click here
But I wanted to share the results of the yarn color naming contest with you for the Winter 2011 Collection of Nicole’s Recipe Banana Fiber Yarn (or Nicole’s Recipe for short). I love the names you came up with.
Perhaps because it’s chilly here the winner of Yarn #1 goes to Brett H with “All Iced Up”. With the hues of a chilly blue, icey purple and a splash of sea foam green, “All Iced Up” seemed perfect to me!
For Yarn #2 Jo Karen M won with “Golden Gate Sunset”. Perhaps I’m missing wine country up in that neck of the woods or I have fond memories of driving back from Muir Woods north of San Fran and knowing exactly what Jo Karen is talking about.
Also, I’ll keep these yarns on sale until the end of the year. And how wonderful- because I am also running to promotion of when you purchase any 4 yarns on the site you get a 5th for free!
Thank you to everyone who participated. Lots more yarn and ribbon on the way so there is always an opportunity to win!

This was a quick contest because Mike’s birthday (official DGY husband) is tomorrow and I need to bake a cake, clean the house and print labels for these new yarns and get them attached!
This is quickly becoming a very fun tradition at Darn Good Yarn and it’s beyond wonderful to have so many of you take part in this. I always smile when I add the labels with the winners names and send this marvelous yarn off to yarn shops all over the place.
Congrats to the following people for their yarn color choices:
Yarn #1 goes to Jill Holland winning with Jubilee
Yarn #2 goes to Tiffany Conner with India’s Indigo
Yarn # 3 goes to Sam Rose (of Calamity Designs) with Snooki. She submitted it as a joke but I’m a Jersey girl at the end of the day.
Yarn # 4 goes to Rebecca Mohrbach for Rapunzel

Good morning Darn Good Yarners!
I told you that you would have a lot of opportunities this month to name some yarns. I have four more for you this morning. To submit your ideas, just leave your response as a comment below! I numbered the yarn’s in their captions so you can just type something like 1= xyz, 2=abc etc.
This is a quick one so make your entries this morning and tell your friends to get in on the action
Have a great day!

The choice, as always, was tough but luckily I have lots of new yarns coming in over the next few months so you can give it a try.
What am I talking about? Well, the yarn color naming contest! If you’re a part of the group “Darn Good Yarn Fans” you’ve noticed that I’ve been having a series of contest where you can put your two cents in for the name of the colors of the new yarns I’ve been presenting to Darn Good Yarn.
I’m always so impressed by the creativity.
But this round of winners goes to Michelle M and Jared S!
Michelle named this yarn Cerulean Skies. You can read more and discover this new blend of yarn here.
And Jared S, wow, what a head-turner of a name La Belle Mousse de Mer (Beautiful Sea Foam)–hmm, I don’t know if it was the French wine I had last night or what but this one was too pretty to pass up. You can read and see more about this yarn here.
