We need help so we're having a contest

There was another Color Play Mohair Wrap in the box that arrived yesterday from Ann.
A bit of a funny story. The wrap on the right is the one that I just finished. The one on the left is the one in the box from Ann. The same colours but in a different order. When I knit mine I didn't remember that these were the colours I sent to Ann. Obviously I really like them.

We are having a contest. What should I name this colour combination? I would like a garden/flowery name.


Please leave a comment on this post with your first name, last initial, province and your suggestion for the name for this colour combination.

Comments are moderated so they won't show up until I post them. They will be posted when the contest closes.

Enter as often as you would like.

The winner will be picked by The Needle Emporium and their decision is final.

The contest is open to residents of Canada.

The contest will close on Tuesday, July 30, 2013 at 9pm EST.

The person who submits the name that we choose will win a Color Play Mohair Wrap kit of their choice. It can be one of the four colours on our website or the colour you just named.

We will ship the winner their kit.

The winner will be announced on Wednesday, July 31.

We look forward to seeing the names that you come up with. :)

Saskatchewan Sky. (Ok, it's not garden-y. I'll think some more...)

I suggest Monet's Garden!

Hmm, I like "Lunaria". (otherwise known as money plant/bush.) It grows different shades of purple flowers, but it's seeds are little discs of silvery white that reflect different colours from surrounding plants. so depending on the light, the seeds can look like different colours.

Azalia Sky.
I see all the different colors of Azalias and the color of the sky, so Azalia Sky is my entry :)

Hi Julie,

When you suggested something garden or flower related I immediately though of two things . . . (1) famous English gardens such as, Kew, Chelsea, Chartwell, Chatsworth, Sissinghurst, Bateman's, Clovelly, Eden, Prior Park, The Secret Gardens of Sandwich and Walmer Castle Gardens (I've visited most of them) . . . . and (2) David Austin roses such as, Queen of Sweden, Harlow Carr, Gertrude Jekyll, Lady Emma Hamilton, Winchester Cathedral and Malvern Hills.

These names are not 'creative', but they may spark a memory or two with some knitters.

So, that is my contest entry.

Hi Julie,

Anyways, here's my suggestion in case it didn't work the first time. Hydrangeas in Bloom or just Hydrangea

I know you were looking for a flowery name for this colour combination, but you seem to have enjoyed everything about this project so much so that I would call it "Julie's Joy".

i'm not sure if you got my other posts...I wasn't sure how to do it - My first suggestion was 'Stormy Weather or Stormy Weekend'... since you where away when we got hit by the storm!
Also, another suggestion was 'Sweet Caroline or Sweet Carolina' .... as this is when you where in your place in the Carolina's... and to Neil Diamond, who I'm sure would agree that the shawl looks so 'Sweet'!!! Catherine Kanak

Just read Garden/Flower message, so...Hydrangea Dreams.

I tried to leave a comment on the blog but it wouldn't let me for some reason? I've chosen Azalea Sky, because the different shades of azaleas run through it with the blues. Azalea Sky is my entry.

This beautiful combination of colours reminds me of the Lilac Dell at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hamilton. The deep pinks and purples of the lilac blooms, the green of the foliage and the blues of a cloudless sky are represented in colours selected. I would like to suggest "The Lilac Dell" as the name. Thanks

The colours remind me of the lupins that grow wild around the highway up north, so I suggest "Lupin". :)

Here is my favourite idea for a name for your lovely wrap. How about "Royal Botanical Garden". This honours a special place, the near to Ancaster Royal Botanical Gardens and the recent Royal birth of Prince George.

Hi Julie,

I love the combination of colours in your latest Colour Play Wrap. Check out the link below. I think it should be called "Monet's Garden" because it truly does contain all those vibrant colours and the sequence comes from mother nature's palette.
Have a great weekend!

I followed your instructions for submitting names for the Colour Wrap contest but I am not sure if I did it correctly or it went over the airwaves to you so I am sending this e-mail with the names that I suggested:
1.HEAVENLY HOLYHOCKS
2.LIVELY LUPINS
The colours remind me of the flowers in the garden that have the same shades as in the beautiful wraps.
