With shawls and accessories I tend to choose a name that feels right for the design or that has something to do with the design, taking the cue from a stitch pattern or similar things. But most of the time I struggle with choosing names. So once again I'm asking my blog readers for help. I need help naming some of the designs in the Easy Lace collection. If I choose your suggestion you will win a free copy of the E-book when it's published (which will be very soon).
The first shawlette I've been calling the Fairytale Shawlette because I worked the initial sample in Fairytale Sock. Any better suggestions would be welcome, although I do like Fairytale, perhaps I'll stick with it but do let me know what you think.
I had decided I would call this scarf 'Do The Twist' because of the way the centre stitch pattern twists but perhaps someone can come up with something better?
And finally the design that's currently on my needles, a cowl and handwarmer set. The only pics i have so far are the blocking pics of the cowl from the last post:
This is the larger size, the smaller size is currently blocking but no pics yet. I've knitted one of the larger handwarmers and I've started the first of the smaller pair. I've ordered some buttons to fasten this cowl this morning from my favourite button shop. I also discovered The Textile Garden will be at Woolfest so I will be stocking up on more buttons then.
Yesterday was the warmest and sunniest day of the year so far for us. Today looks like it's going to be another cracker. My plans for today is to try to finish all the patterns for the Easy Lace Collection and the Daisy Shawlette and to deal with as many e-mails as I can cope with. I'm drowning in them! I'm also determined to enjoy the sunshine and sit out in the garden to knit for a bit. I wish I could take my laptop outside to work but I can't see the screen if I use it outside. Very annoying!
I hope your weekend is as sunny as ours. And please do leave your name suggestions in the comments together with your e-mail or Ravelry name so I can contact you if you win. Winners will be chosen & announced next week. Also, I'm hoping to have this collection printed into pattern booklets. So if you know any good British-based printers that are also affordable for small runs please let me know.
