The color reminds me of Peppermint Sticks!

Lynne

That is the prettiest little nothing I've seen today! You make the best colors.

Kristy

I love the colors of this yarn, Kim! I can't wait until it is ready for purchase. As to a name, how about Elizabeth Bennet? She is my favorite Jane Austin character.

Alvine

Love the colorway. It reminds me of a spring sunrise, especially in the White Mountains or on the coast of Maine.

Ruinwen

Kim, How do you make such beautiful color combos each more stunning then the last? I am awed at this colorway. It reminds me of the first blush of Innocence. :)

tiennie

Alhambra was so pretty, can't wait to see this one which you love even more!

Erica

I love peat pots, too! They're one of the best things about planting day.

The yarn reminds me of the cherry and plum blossoms of spring here, though I really like the heirloom rose, too.

Rachel

Ooo, wait, rhubarb pie. But then, I'm pregnant right now, so everything reminds me of food, lol!

Rachel

Strawberries and cream?

wynne

this is so lovely! i can't wait for the kit to be available so i can make some for gifts - and, of course, myself. :)

i do like the name lovely....

Beth

It's beautiful yarn (whatever you decide to name it!).

Angie

Strawberry Rhubarb, was my thought. Then I read the comments and found that I was *not alone;* however, it all depends on our monitors!

pat jarvis

KIM - THIS NEW COLOUR REALLY DOES MAKE ME THINK OF VICTORIAN ROSES TOO - LOVE IT - MAY NEED TO HAVE IT TOO

great dyeing job --pat j

Beth S.

What an exquisite color, whatever you may call it (I admit I like the "rhubarb" suggestion--it fits your garden theme! But so would "Heirloom Rose"...)

Wool Winder

When you said it looked Victorian, I immediately thought Victorian Rose. I see a few others thought the same thing. Very pretty.

Barb M

How about Sweet Magnolia (which I've finally seen here in Illinois this weekend) or Cherry Blossom. Love the colorway!

Teyani

Love that new colorway - and it looks so perfect in that pattern... I agree with Tea roses, or English Rose.
lovely.

Suzanne

The colorway is gorgeous whatever name you pick.

KathyR

Some great names here for such a lovely colourway! When I saw it I thought of Wine and Roses. It will look so pretty in that lovely pattern.

Dawn

The colorway reminds me of some poppies that I planted once called Angel Choir.

Laura

"Growing" the peat pots is always my favorite part of seeding! Apparently I am entertained by the simplest things. :)

annmarie

I also thought of tea roses when I saw the photo of the skeined yarn. the color knitted up in the lace seems to be a 'cooler' shade but it might just be the lighting. lovely. :)

Lee Cockrum

I think that is the one of Anne's that I am practically holding my breath for her to get the pattern out! I love it!!

I thought of weathered bricks when I saw the colors before reading any of the comments... and since people seem to be thinking of garden ideas, veggie or flower... how about "Garden path"?

Linda M

It looks like the mineral Rhodochrosite. I don't know if I can post a link here but I'll try: http://www.galleries.com/minerals/carbonat/rhodochr/rhodochr.htm

If you want to stay with flowers, for me I see Peonies or Camelias! Finally, I can't wait for my Alhambra kit to arrive. I'm loving your interpretations of Anne's patterns.

Susanne

Since Spring has established itself so nicely in your area, how about "Spring Rose"? beautiful no matter what you call it!!and the pattern is once again a winner imho!

Manise

I second Victorian Rose! Coveting that colorway (and pattern thus far) btw! Can't wait until it's available. It's going to look lovely!

Rebecca

Hmmm -- this color reminds me of the light in photos from Tuscany, so I'd go with Tuscany if it were me.

Beautiful colorway.

Rosa

Very Pretty! I love the colors; very feminine and romantic.

Debbie

Blush. I'm thinking wine! HA! I like the two above: Nana's Rhubarb Patch and Ashes of Roses from the Thorn Birds. I can't wait for Boing to be released. Are you going to offer this yarn in a kit with Anne? I love the scarf!

Lorraine

Kim- It does look Rhubarb- it is very pretty.

kathy b

Antique Raggedy Ann is what I'd call it. . I love Raggedy's with hair that isn't bright red.

sandy

How about Morning Rose? It's very pretty.

Kirsten

Oh how I love perky little peat pots and dreams of lazy summer days in the garden!

Lovely yarn colors.

Laurie

I see Rosehips.

Barbara

I vote for rhubarb! I loved my mother's rhubarb pies - without the strawberries - but with vanilla ice cream on top.

anne

ooh that rhubarb is a good reference for a name . . and today i was thinking it looked like wee begonia flowers.

i was just thinking today that i haven't had the usual spring fever this year! maybe because i'm spending less time at my boring day job (wink!)

Cheryl, the knitting Jungian

Beautiful color!

We're expanding our garden this year too -- and getting a freezer.

Megan

Victorian Rose?
Victorian Blush?

It is lovely.

Megan

Oh that color is amazing. It reminds me of Loganberries and rose quartz (go figure). I once attended a conference regarding historic resource preservation and the used the term Victoriana to refer to styles or objects reflecting the Victorian age. Compared to some of the other terms we learned that made no sense to what it was describing, Victoriana was by far the coolest. You could call it pink mud and it would still be beautiful. =)

Carole

It makes me think of Ashes of Roses from the Thornbirds. But that's sort of corny, I know.

Harper

Tea Roses?

Stacey

What a gorgeous colorway for a lovely scarf - hmmm, looks like Nana's Rhubarb Patch to me:)

Trish B.

I know this isn't very original, but Sugarberry pops into mind as I look at it-yummy!
