Names 'n' Things

I am on a mission to come up with a name for my knitting and my eventual event consulting businesses.  Yesterday I had a rhythm going.  I would come up with a name, write it down, think about it, and finally ask my father about it.  All good stuff.  We made it through about ten ideas before my father decided to google all the names and see if they'd been used already.  Turns out ALL of my ideas had been.  I'm stumped!!!  Any ideas friends?

Apart from a bit of creative inspiration failure, today was an excellent knitting day.  I sent out my very first submission to a knitting magazine for one of their upcoming issues!  I designed a pattern AND wrote an article!  I am beyond excited.  I have been working on this for weeks and now it's finally out of my hands.  No matter what happens, I'll let you all know more details when I find out.


  1. Celia, I am so proud of you! I really hope that your article makes it - I bet it is awesome! What is the pattern for (a scarf?).

    Ideas for names: "Celia's Creations" "CM Knits" or "CMAK"

    The last one stands for 'Celia Mulder's Awesome Knits' which should be read as "SMAK" hmm I will try to think of more later =D

    1. Thanks for the suggestions! I am really enjoying CMAK. It definitely makes the top twenty! Which is about as far as I've gotten...

  2. Event Patterns? As'll make a pattern for their event :) Hmmmm brain is still engaging today

    1. Thanks for the suggestions! Hannah's best one was UP Yer Knittin'. She really put a lot of thought into it. Surprisingly.
