Knitting Drag Queen

I am looking for names for a knitting drag queen for a performance piece that I am mulling around in my head. Suggestions, please!!!

I am impressed with Knitty Carlisle...consider the following...

Fera L'lsle

Pearl Bumps

Plissé Reebe

Pear DeCreece

Every person I encounter teaches me more about myself. Without whom not.

Not crotch, you troll!

Crow-shay! As in Sash-A!

Knitasha Croché! Get it right! I'm beautifully twisted and cabled, DAMMIT!

Oh my stars and garter stitch! IS THAT FABRIKA??? She looks mildewed!

Honey, take a note! You look home-made---not hand-made. Shop worn is so last year, Sweetie! And Pulleeze...shave off those pills!

Every person I encounter teaches me more about myself. Without whom not.

I love it when butch brings it on!! Let it flow, brother!!!!

you said: "Not crotch, you troll!
Crow-shay! As in Sash-A!"

Isn't that what makes it the most perfect choice, it has my vote.

Wow and I thought I was good at the drag queen name game. You guys are making me look like a rank amatur. My favorites so far are:
Knitty Fairisle
Knitasha Croché
Nannette Fibré

I do hope for this performance piece you are using "Pardon Me, I Didn't Knit That For You."

Yowza! Am I ever out of practice on Drag Names. (Not that I was ever good at it, mind you.) I really like Knitasha Croch'e - how do you get those diacriticals in there? - but I think a lot of it has to do with whether you are in a group, or solo. Sounds like lots of fun, either way. -- D'oh - found the diacritical key on the upper keyboard. I'm much better with my knitting than I ever was with typing. Thank goodness! Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

How about.......

Ballzy Wool
Hanka Wool
Pearl (purl) Ballwinder
Knitkita Ballwinder

I'll try to think of some more. Having beverages, so shouldn't be that hard to get creative here soon!! :))
Although, I must say that Stuart's suggestion of Lady Entrelac is my fave so far!

Okay you fellows are way out of my league, I will stay quiet on this one lol. Lady Entralac gets my vote, so regal "Duchess of Yarn Over"
Having cocktail hour with you lot would definately be a plus rofl!!!!!!

This is probably lame, but how about Shear, and then you could sing "If I could purl back time."

Jacquardia O
Ivana Knit
Anita Stash
Nastasha Yarnova
Heather Blocklear

I probably shouldn't send this one but who could resist: Muffy Swatch
