Easy to knit the project, difficult to name the design. I often overlook the easy projects in favor of challenging designs. This time I let the gradient yarn do the hard work. The hardest thing about it was deciding on a name. Since my default source of names tends to be those of family and friends, I went for a common Southern family name found in my extended family in Florida and Georgia.
