Because One Stove is Not Enough: Naming Rights Auction

Have a great idea for a colourway that you’ve always wanted us to do? Is there a special person you’d love to immortalize in yarny goodness?  Want us to recreate your favourite photograph in colour?

Now’s your chance.

Tell us your story and give us a bid. The highest 4 bidders win the right to name a non-repeatable, one-time-only indigodragonfly colourway.

On Knit in Public day (June 15, 2013), Kim and Ron will dye your colourway live, in person, at Shall We Knit. They’ll tell your story to the crowds waiting with bated breath and live tweet/photograph the process. Whether you’re able to be there in person, or are watching from home, you won’t want to miss this.

You’ll also be featured here on the indigodragonfly blog. AND, you’ll get one skein of your colourway in your choice of Merino Sock or Ultra MCN Sock.

The remaining skeins in the batch will also be auctioned off on the day in our Ravelry Group.

All proceeds will go towards building a dye house and studio for indigodragonfly.  (Which means more yarn, faster, for all of you!)

The Naming Auction will take place in this thread in our Ravelry Group from June 1-10.  If you don’t have a Ravelry account, you can also participate by emailing us your story and your bid and we will enter it for you!

**Single Skein Auction** Minimum bid: $45

Naming rights + 1 skein of your colour way.

**Full Pot Auction** Minimum bid: $400
You can also bid on a full pot in your very own colourway in the base of your choice*. As above, tell us your story and give us a bid.

Kim and Ron will dye your yarn and then do a second pot of your colourway to be auctioned off to the masses.

A full pot/dye lot means:
10 skeins of Worsted
7 skeins of Sock yarn
8 skeins of DK weight

  1. I can attest to the fact that there is nothing quite like holding a skein and knowing you were responsible for it’s creation. Kim and Ron took my thought/idea and made it real. So. Very. Worth. It. (not to mention a GREAT Cause!)
