Naming Conventions

I think one of the most fun parts of designing stuff is coming up with fun names.  For example, my latest pattern (which will be available for free) was originally designed under the name "Last Minute Beret".  But that seems boring.  Yes, it does convey the idea that this is a quick and easy knit, but it just didn't really do it for me.

I though perhaps "Christmas Eve Beret" would be better, but then...what if you don't celebrate Christmas?  What if you have a friend with a winter birthday?

After some deep thought, I've finally settled on "Tam O'Quickness".  Much better, don't you think?


  1. I LOVE Tam O' Quickness!
    You are a lady after me own heart :)

  2. Tam O'Quickness is knitting up quickly, too. I'm at the 1/3 point after 1.5hours of knitting last night. It should be a 4 hour or less knit. And it's SO cute!!
