Picking up stitches and Kitchener Stitch Bind-off

I find there's something very satisfying about picking up stitches to make the neckband of a sweater (or to knit sleeves gansay-style from shoulder down). Perhaps it's the reassurance that you've almost made it after knitting the body and arms.

I'm thinking of posting my Tri-Color Flecked Tweed hat pattern on Ravelry for sale or free or whatever, but I was trying to think of a more interesting name. Any ideas from you guys?
