Sandpiper: Name

Every time I am stuck on coming up with names for my designs, I ask for help in the Cup of Stitches group on Ravelry. It is amazing to see how many different associations and word combinations arise, many of which I never would have thought of! Some of the words catch my ear immediately and become the design names.

Sandpiper was one of these names. When it was suggested, it quickly went to the top of the list for this design. It was a perfect match: the colorway of the yarn and the look of the stitch pattern have so much in common with the spotted feathers, while the longer back mimics the bird's tail!
