Lace Shawl Design-Naming Contest!!!

Hey knitters!

I’m in the process of designing my very first triangular lace shawl and I need some pattern name suggestions.

In order to make this a fun process, I thought I’d have a contest.


1. From now until July 31st, 2011 comment on this post with suggestions of names for my new lace shawl.

2. Suggestions should somehow relate to the shawl in some way (note “images” below) and I’d prefer if the name wasn’t already being used in Ravelry as a pattern, particularly a lace pattern.

3. The winner will not only be named awesome and amazing (on here, my blog and facebook), but also will receive a FREE copy of the lace pattern (or pattern of his/her choice in my pattern store). There is also free yarn involved (that part is a surprise).

4. In the first week of August, the winner will be announced, as well as the unveiling of the new pattern (pics included)…available for purchase on my Raverly pattern store as well as here on my blog.

The above picture is the yarn I'm using for this design: Mad Color "Classica" in the Margharitaville colorway.

Can’t wait to read your suggestions!!!

Gina :D

Here are key images to work with:

cool, frosty drinks
cotton sundress

Good luck!!!

How about "Pythagoras was a Knitter"?

I posted in the Rav group as well, but my idea is "Island Oasis"

Oh, I want to play!

How about Cointreau, Citron Vert or maybe On the Rocks.

I was thinking ocean breezes and came up with the following:

zephyr -- a gentle wind. There is one triangular shawl in ravelry called zephyr, but it doesn't seem to be a very well-known pattern.

scirocco or sirocco -- a dry wind from the south. There are two spellings. Sirocco is used for a couple of patterns, but no shawls. Scirocco doesn't seem to be used at all.

susurrus -- a faint rustling or whispering sound. Obscure, but I always thought it was a pretty word. Doesn't seem to be used in ravelry at all.

The words bring to mind Mother Earth so how about "Mother Gaia" as a pattern name. The life giving creative side of earth.

Key West Wrap

I love Knitogram's name, "Key West Wrap"...but, if I could, I would change it up slightly to "Kiwi West Wrap" since the color of that beautiful yarn reminds me of a kiwi.

Knitogram, I love your name, "Key West Wrap", but, could I be copycatish and suggest "Kiwi West Wrap" since the color of that beautiful yarn reminds me of that fruit?

In honor of all those Parrot Heads (Jimmy Buffet fans) out there, how about "Wastin' away again..."
