Southeast Animal Fiber Festival in Asheville, NC

My son returned to school this week so for me it's officially almost Autumn. I'm still adjusting to leaving the lazy days of summer behind. But Autumn is my favorite time of year and this year it will be even more exciting. I'm going to have a booth at the Southeast Animal Fiber Festival in Asheville, NC in October! I really need to start loading up on inventory and planning my booth. No, I have no idea what I'm going to do for a booth other than have tables with lots of baskets full of yarn! So I need to get thinkin' on this. Here's the SAFF website.

There will be a bunch of bloggers and ravelry-ers at SAFF and I'm excited to meet everyone. Here's a link to someone who doc'ed SAFF from last year.

Christmas/Holiday Movie tvyarn contest results

Meet "The Polar Express"!

I really loved all your entries but the colors and the amazing emotional appeal of "The Polar Express" intrigued me. It's not one that I would have picked on my own, so I loved the idea of it. After 3 tries and 2 failures, I came close to what I was trying to capture. Midnight blue, shades of violet moonlight on snow, hot chocolate and shades of golden yellow for the beaming light. Ah.

So, both "emicat" and "vegasangelbrat" contributed to the idea and colors - so BOTH of you win 2 skeins of "The Polar Express". And then for the other 41 of you I did a random number generation and "kimncocoa" won. So will the three of you please send me your name and address? To whiteoakstudio at yahoo dot com

thanks! this was great fun! Jana

Christmas/Holiday Movie TVYARN CONTEST!!

Well, yes, it's August but just this week I started to get Christmas fever and I'm ready to create some Christmas/Holiday-themed sock yarn! I need help with ideas so let's have a contest. The prize will be 2 skeins of the yarn that you will help to create by participating in the contest.

So leave a comment and tell me
1) the title of your favorite Christmas/Holiday movie
2) what colors you would put in yarn inspired by the movie and WHY you would choose those colors for the movie. So give me an eloquent and passionate rationale. Or just a funny one.

I'll pick the winner based on what I think is the best Christmas/Holiday movie/colors inspiration and reasoning. Remember you can pick the same movie that someone else chose and give your own colors/reason. Then I'll dye the yarn and let y'all take a look. Make sense? (And do not choose Elf because I dyed that one yesterday :-) )

So leave a comment by 5pm Wednesday August 8, 2007. If I get more than 30 entries I'll give 2 prizes - one for best entry and one random winner. So tell your friends! Jana
