The Final Task

The pattern is written and needs a few edits -- no problem.  My experimenting is done and all techniques are finalized -- great.  The test knitting is coming along smoothly -- on schedule.  Which leaves me to the last and most difficult task in the design process.  What should I name my version of the Sideways Socks, because let's be honest "Sideways Socks" is far, far to boring and predictable.  I'm looking for something snappy, something clever, something original.  And I'm looking to you, creative reader -- yes, you -- for suggestions.  Can you help?

Inspired by your earlier post, how about Elegant Solution?

Ooo, I like Judy's "Longitudes" and Monica's "Sidewinders." OTOH, I came a'commentin' to prove my boring-ing-ness because I LIKE the name "Sideways Socks."

Gee, while I'm here...

Sidewinder? Crabby? Hermit (crab)?

Socks on the side! Most of us have a sock going alongside our usual project, after all.

ohh, sidewinder....

Snappy Socks? You said you wanted a snappy name.

Horizontal socks?

How about Alternate Dimension socks? I don't know why I like that so much but I do.

Socks on the side. Hehe, yeah I am a dork.

Vertical Edge. The patterning of the socks will be visible vertical when worn (unless you are lying down).

I throw my vote to sidewinders or sidekicks!

Posted by: Leslie | Jun 1, 2007 5:59:10 AM

I was going to suggest Sidewinders also!

"Imaginary socks" (as imaginary numbers can be thought as "rotated 90 degrees": see "complex plane")

Posted by: T | Jun 1, 2007 6:27:16 AM

Instantly I thought "Sidewinder"... and many others did as well! :)

Posted by: Deb | Jun 1, 2007 6:37:11 AM

In honour of the STR colourway that you're knitting the socks with you should DEFINITELY call the socks the "Mojave Desert Sidewinder"! That's a kind of sidewinder snake that lives in Red Rock Canyon!

Third photo down. :)

Socks on the Side was my first thought, but I see others have beat me to it. How about Pinot Noir (after the movie Sideways)?

Posted by: Laura | Jun 1, 2007 7:12:54 AM

I was going to say... well, now I can't remember because I like Perpensockular so much.

Posted by: Carrie | Jun 1, 2007 7:27:36 AM

Because they make me feel like dancin'"
