Wool ewe help me name my knitting blog?
November 9, 2012 3:11 PM   Subscribe

Forget about all the nameless kittens and babies crying in vain for an identity. It's time to Name! That! Blog!

So I've come with an idea for a blog, and I would like a clever name for it. My idea is to launch a knitting blog (yeah, one of those) in which I review knitting patterns in a semi-serious, semi-pointing-and-laughing way, and post interesting knitting-related items. Interesting if you like knitting that is, because otherwise you'd probably rather enter a pickled herring eating contest. Knitting puns have been done to death, but I have such faith in the wit and creativity of the MeFi community that I'm sure you can come up with some brand new, wildly amusing pun.;-) And I have a name ready that would do to fall back on if you don't succeed.

... dammit, that one looks taken (though by a fashion blog rather than a knitting blog). Back to pickled herring for me.

The name that I had chosen was Paradigm Swifts, but The Knitting Needle and the Damage Done was so much more accessible, if less snappy to say, that I went with it. I don't know why I didn't think of it myself — I already used a variation of it to title one of my craft posts.

Thanks all!

And my new blog is here with a big two posts up already.
