After our blog posts asking for suggestions to help us name my new design, Babylonglegs and I decided upon Contoura, which was suggested by Diagon. We had so many great suggestions to choose from - thank you! - and Contoura describes it's construction so well.

As promised, we hit the dye studio today and dyes up a special skein for the prize!

I got to casa Babylonglegs earlier this week, and it's lovely to stop for a bit and slow down; the last few weeks have been pretty hectic. It was great fun to play with dyes (even if I couldn't do much of the skein lifting and such) and I'm loving today's colour play.

Look at that purple and turquoise together!

Thank you again for everyone's suggestions - there's some amazing name ideas there. So many that I'm keen to use a few going forward for entirely different designs and I'll be thanking commenters by gifting copies of those future patterns :)

Don't forget that we'll have special kits at Fibre East next weekend, and the pattern will go live on Ravelry 1st August. If you're not able to get to Fibre East you may want to sign up for the newsletter so you can hear about the pattern release as soon as it's available.

The gradient packs are extremely limited so I'd suggest heading to the Babylonglegs stall pronto! There will be extra copies of the printed pattern should you prefer to use a different skein of gorgeousness from Babylonglegs. I'll also have postcards with coupon codes with me, just in case a skein of yarn inspires you to make a different WW Hat.

See you at Fibre East?
