The pattern isn’t actually a labyrinth or a maze at all. But that was a popular theme with people suggesting names. I even got a couple of votes that indicated people liked the labyrinth theme. I dug around a little, did some research online, and thought that perhaps Knossos would be a good name for the pattern, because though some say that the Palace of Knossos was built as a labyrinth to hold the minotaur, in other places that aspect of the building wasn’t mentioned at all. I was close, so close to using Knossos. In the end I decided not to, because I have the hardest time pronouncing it! Labyrinth is much easier to pronounce—though this word I seem to have a difficult time spelling…
What does all this mean? This means that the pattern will be called Lost Labyrinth, but I’ll be giving away two copies of the pattern: one to Miya, who suggested Lost Labyrinth, and one to Angela (apparently blogless), who suggested Knossos.
Huge thanks to everyone who suggested a pattern name, with special thanks to Miya and Angela. I’ll be sending email confirmation to both of you ladies in the next few minutes. Please let me know if you don’t get it.
On another note entirely, my dear friend Mary Bird interviewed me again this morning on her live podcast, Yarn Thing. It was awesome talking to you again this morning, girlfriend.
