I finished the first socks for our sock challenge the other day and like always I had no idea how to name them. That really is the hardest part, if you ask me, to come up with a nice name. So we had a small contest and asked my Ravelry friends to come up with suggestions - and the winning name is Pooh Sticks. I love it!
I love Pooh Bear and his stories and indeed, the pattern looks like the game 'Pooh Sticks', which you can play on any bridge over running water: each player drops a stick on the upstream side of a bridge and the one whose stick first appears on the downstream side is the winner. Thanks for this great suggestion, Debbie!
Well, I already cast on my second pair for the challenge. DH picked the skein to knit up next and when he saw the first rows of the pattern he named it right away: Strip Parquet. Maybe not the nicest name, but I see why he thought of it. :)
