Lots of new stuff and March's Contest!

First things first: NEW STUFF!
Oink Pigments Worsted now comes in 6 more colors!

From left to right: Painting the Roses Red, Melon-choly, Sunny with a Chance of Peaches, Three-Leaf Clover, Mr. Blue Eyes. and Cotton Candy Clouds

You may recognize the names of some of these from their semi-solid sock counterparts, but these are new and improved semi-solids!
(The old sock versions are on CLEARANCE! So hurry up and snag those before they disappear!)

We also have 2 new keychain colorways: Ex-Boyfriend's Sweater and Teal Appeal

Also, you may have seen posts and Oinks about the new Patterns section of the online store.
There are THREE patterns in there now; Ruffles- a fingerless glove pattern, Peacock Feathers- a lacy toe-up sock pattern, and Baby Valentine Dress- a cute baby dress that features a heart lace pattern.
And hopefully more will be on their way soon!

Second on the agenda: March's Contest!

This month we are doing something kind of fun- Name that Colorway!
There are 3 new Sock colorways that are joining the family, but they need your help finding a name! The winner will receive a skein of the colorway they named, so make sure you think of a good one for the one you want the most!

1. grey with bits of white and black

2. forest green with tan, grey, and a light straw color

3. hot pink, peachy oranges, and yellows

So just send an email to with your entry (be sure to let me know which colorway you are naming- either by number or description)!
The names that will be chosen will be ones that best fit the colorway and also work well with all of the other Oink Pigments names.

Rules: One entry per colorway per person. 
Deadline for submission is Sunday, March 27, 2011 at 11:59pm.

Can't wait to see all of the names you guys come up with! Good luck!

Wow, that's a lot of stuff going on! Hope I didn't forget anything!

There is another new section in the online store! Patterns!

There is only one pattern in there right now, but I have another one that is almost complete (I'll give you a clue, it's got ruffles) and another one that I am working on!

Peacock Feathers is the current pattern in there which is a toe-up sock pattern using Oink Pigments Sock (of course) and has a really simple lace pattern up the front of the sock.

Hope you like it! :@)
