Voting on a Name for My Afghan

It’s time to vote on a name for my afghan that I just finished for the Crochet Guild of America Design Contest. We had 5 people who gave me names that they felt best suited my afghan. I can’t make up my mind, because all of them are very good. I’m asking all of you to help me choose the name you like best from the following names:

1. Granny Kaleidoscope (Susie Kilgroe)
2. Everlasting Harmony (Cheryl Gibbs)
3. Granny Kaleidoscope Gone Wild (Kelly Wilson)
4. Grannies Gone Wild (Steph Macera)
5. Candy Kaleidoscope (Donna Dixon)

Please help me to name my afghan by leaving a message here and telling me which one you think I should use for its name. The person that gets the most votes will win this doily

of course it will be completed by then, (ha! ha!) but this is the progress on the prize doily so far.  The person with the next most votes will win a book called colorful cuddlers and there are four different baby afghan patterns in this book published by Leisure Arts and designs by Becky Stevens:

This pattern looks very interesting to me with the sideways stripes.

The person with the next most votes will win a pin cushion of my choosing. I’m not quite sure which one yet but I know it will be very cute, like these are.

So please post a comment on which name you like best and I will count the votes up and name the winner on Friday, May 6, 2011. So go tell everyone to come here and vote for their favorite, so I can go on to other things. I can hardly wait to show you what I’ve been working on between everything else. I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday and rest of the week.


  1. Hi Tamara,

    All of the names were great, but being a music teacher I must go with this one:

    2. Everlasting Harmony (Cheryl Gibbs)

    • Merri,

      Thank you for voting.

      I love your new bag that you have posted on Facebook. I bet you can’t wait until schools out?

      Love and Hugs,

  2. Of course I must vote for #3, Granny’s Kaleidoscope Gone Wild. But, I also like Cheryl’s Everlasting Harmon.

    • Kelly,

      Of course you would vote for that one, hahahahahaha!!!!! Thank you for stopping by to vote.


  3. Well, dang, this is hard! Since I know all the gals who came up with a name except Donna, I printed off all the afghan names without the owner of the name, then selected (you know I can’t remember anything for 5 minutes, so obviously I didn’t remember who offered what name!!)

    My choice is Grannies Gone Wild! I hope you get a majority on one name so you don’t have to crochet 5 doilies! HA HA HA HA HA HA

    • Rosina,

      Thanks for stopping by to vote. and I never even thought about a tie. EEEEKKKK. Oh well, that ball of thread will disappear if I have to make 5 doilies:)


  4. Tamara,
    No fair. They are all good names. (It seems silly not to vote for the name you submitted, though). What if the prize I want is the pin cushion.. how can I vote so my name gets picked 3rd?

    I vote for #3. Granny’s Kaleidoscope Gone Wild! – That seems like a good compromise.

    At any rate, it is a beautiful piece of art and I am so happy to have seen it evolve!


    • What????? You aren’t going to vote for yourself? You’re so silly, and if you would just ask I probably would make you a pincushion.:) Thanks for stopping by and voting. Tell all your friends to come and vote too.


  5. #1 of
    course, Granny’s kaleidoscope!

    • Susie,

      Thanks for stopping by to vote. You should tell your friends to come and vote too.

      Love & Hugs,

  6. Here’s my vote:

    4. Grannies Gone Wild (Steph Macera)

    I choose this one becuz, Tamara, you (and the grannies) really did go quite wild in this creation. LOL!

    • Kat,
