There was quite a nice spontaneous outbreak of shawl name suggestions in the comments to yesterday’s post. Time for a poll!
(Poll is fixed! Vote away!
ETA: Argh — the poll doesn’t seem to be working. We’ll try again at some point!)
I am, of course, including “Diamonds With a Bunch of Crap in the Middle.” I am also including the name I was thinking I’d give it: “Kay’s Shawl,” because the recipient is named Kay.
So have at it!
Speaking of naming projects after their recipients . . .
Lookie here at my new sock-in-progress.
This is my lovely Ragdoll Diva sock yarn, dyed by Stacy of Tempted Yarns. The resulting socks will be called “Alana’s Socks” because I will be giving them to — you guessed it — someone named Alana.
I had fully intended to keep them for myself, but my coworker Alana saw the first sock in progress and her eyes lit up and she gasped because she loved it so much.
This is the yarn that’s got a tiny silver thread running through it. When you knit this in bright sunlight, boy, does it ever sparkle. Right now the sock just has three lines of little eyelets running up the front. But there will be some crap around the top of the sock.
Which brings us to the question: shouldn’t I call these “Socks With Crap Around the Tops?”
