Thank you all for your suggestions for a name for my vest. While reading through the comments I was thinking, “I really like the name Ciaran — but why does it sound so familiar?” Then I remembered — Alice Starmore has a design called St. Ciaran. She also has a St. Brigid, so that name is out as well.
I decided I didn’t want a name that was distinctly feminine, as the design is suitable for both men and women. I was trolling on a website of Celtic names and their meaning and found this:
Keelan — from a word meaning “slender” or “little”.
Because the cables are little and slender, Keelan it is.
So, ol’ Keelan is now up past the armholes on the back. I’ve put the live underarm stitches on lengths of yarn to keep them, well, live until I am ready for the knitting of the armbands.
And here is my first Fleece Artist sock.
And now for something completely different . . .
It amuses the hell out of me that 61 people searching for:
found my blog.
And because I have nothing else of any use to say at the moment (shocking, isn’t it?) I will sign off for now.
