name calling

in the final years of my "art career" (i was a painter) i had more and more difficulty giving names or titles to my pieces. i still have the same trouble with my hooked mats and tend to name them with descriptive words rather than emotive ones. but i love naming my knitting! my scarves and now my shawls, start with a theme. this guides me in my choice of colours and textures. it becomes a challenge to "describe" this idea in yarn. the shawl i started yesterday doesn't have a title yet but it's all about the damp earth- april rain and the snow melting and what's exposed
after a long winter. would you like to name it?
