An Addendum for the Contest

It seems I still have a lot to learn about blogging. Or more specifically, contests on a blog. So here is your new assignment... name this row counter:

The assignment, should you chose to accept it, requires you to name the above row counter that I will then put up on my Etsy site. Bonus points will be given if you can think outside the box and come up with lots of different names for other colours of row counters. Just post your row counter names in the comments section.

The winner will receive a row counter in their choice of colour. You have until Sunday midnight (or Monday morning when I get up - which is early) to get creative. Judging will be completely subjective. Make the names sweet, descriptive or witty - it doesn't matter. I would like to use the names for counters that I make in the future.

If you don't have a link remember to leave an email address so I can contact you if you win!

Banana Split
Lemon Meringue Pie
Sunny Days
Sunshine Delight
Lemon Ice
Lemon Sherbet
Pineapple Punch

But I think it would be fun to name them all after food or desserts! (I'm hungry now, can you tell?) You could have names like Cherry Cobbler, Strawberry Shortcake, Raspberry Pie, Blueberry Buckle, Grape Salad, Key Lime Pie, Pistachio Torte, Orange Sherbet, Mango Smoothie, Hot Chocolate, Espresso, Mint Meltaway, Dark Chocolate, Gingerbread, Dill Pickle, Green Tea, Green Grapes, etc. If you mixed colors you could have things like Rainbow Sherbet, Neopolitan, Cherry Cheesecake...

bows and toes counter

I think it reminds me of the yellow peace ribbons strung for showing support to our troops. The ribbon charm makes me think even more so. With it being a counter i start getting thoughts like:

peace ribbons
peace countdown
peace purls lol, i'm sleepy!

i like it though, have not seen the the counters (bracelets or other) in person to see how they work, looks nice though, sparkly!

"slip stitched" seems the most obvious since you slip it over each bead.
"when your mind slips over the numbers, you dont have to start over! just slip this over the row you are on to keep track"

oh how about the absent minded slipper :0)
