"Makes Me Smile" Monday

"I love the feel of the bamboo needles as they tap out a song under my hands, and the utter satisfaction of wearing items I make keeps me warmer than the wool itself. The anger and frustrations that I bring home at the end of the day, attached to my body like burrs, find their way out through my hands into the wool, and are stitched into beautiful things rather than festering in the back of my mind."

- Knit Lit -

I so agree !! That's why I'm so glad the click-clack-click-clack of my knitting needles is back !! I finished a sweater a few months ago, and have been waiting for my back-ordered new yarn to arrive before starting my next project. But, it's here & I'm knitting again . . . and all feels right with the world !!!

I am in need of some help, though. The above-mentioned book contains a cute little blurb about naming each of your knitting projects . . . "name it and tame it," so the saying goes ! So, if I'm making a sweater with this beautiful new lilac yarn . . . what should I name it ?!?!???? Suggest away !!!

Happy Monday !!!

I can't knit, but I can name things!

Okay, my powers of naming feel a bit weak tonight, but what about "Northern Lights"?

Or "Lavender Fields"?

Or maybe "Ralph." That's a good name.

I am waxing a bit poetic this morning
going more for the personal rather than the project (and Ralph, while more personal seems just a little bit too manly for that soft and lovely shade). How about Lillander or Lillandress- all the L's make it feel a little Welsh yet it brings up color front and center. It looks to be a beautiful sweater.

I still say "Grape Ape."

Grape Ape is even more ridiculous than Ralph! :) I vote for one of Heidi's names.
