"Makes Me Smile" Monday

So . . . . my sweater-in-progress has a name.
It's basically had this name since I posted last.

There I was, innocently sitting on the couch, knitting away, when Jack randomly turned to me and blurted out "Grape Ape". I didn't even know he'd read my request for suggestions, much less had one of his own . . . and then it was permanently stuck in my head !!! So, "Grape Ape" it is !! (Anyone else really like that cartoon as a kid ?!?!!!)

Thank you for all the suggestions, too . . . . I loved them all ! I especially liked "Lillander", but "Grape Ape" was burned into my brain for good ! The yarn seems to be responding to the name, too . . . this sweater has been knitting up fast and well so far !!! Maybe a more delicate and feminine name for the next sweater ! Come to think of it, one of the names used in the book I mentioned was "The Road Kill" . . . so "Grape Ape" really isn't that bad, huh !?!?!!!!!

Happy Monday !!!

Your husband is one of the namers among us. Some people can just do that! Grape Ape isn't too bad- and if that's what he's going to call it then that is what it is! LOL!
