Shade Quiz!

Win 10 skeins of Encore Worsted, read on for details.

Ok, I’ll admit it; I read the 50 Shades of Grey book series.  My friends read it, my sister read it, my niece read it, my boss read it, and last but not least, my mom read it! (I’m pretty sure I won’t be accompanying her to the movies when that one comes out.)
Last week, I was chatting with a knitter looking to make a chevron blanket with various shades of grey Encore Worsted. As I searched in my computer system, I realized just how popular grey is, and that we have many, many shades of it.  So for some fun this week, I decided to give away a bag but I am going to make your work for it! Give us your best guess to the questions below.  One person, with the closest answers, will win 10 balls of Encore Worsted color 389.  Comment with your answers to our Blog ONLYFacebook and Twitter entries will not be accepted.  In the event of multiple correct comments, a winner will be chosen among them at random.  Plymouth Yarn employees, sales representatives and their immediate families are not eligible to win. Data on number of shades is collected from inventory reports.  Winner will be notified via email on August 3rd 2012.
1.    How many shades of grey yarn are active in our inventory?
2.    How many shades of red?
3.    How many black yarns are active in our system?

Have fun and happy guessing.
