  5. I love the Kona Orchid color. I love how it "morphes" depending on the surronding colors. Gray, blue, a deep off-white....

  23. Sorry posted before I was finished...
    As I was trying to type, great give away this is! I don't have a favorite Kona solid because my LQS doesn't carry this range but I've been dying to get my hands on some for a while now. Just a nice piece of cream coloured solid to use for my embroidery blocks is what I would go for first.
    Thanks for the chance to win some!
