The shop name comes from the Greek Goddesses also known as The Fates or the Moirae. They are Lachesis, Clotho and Atrophos and the closest thing I could think of to knitting goddesses in mythology. They are sometimes known as the spinner, the weaver and the cutter as they spin the thread of life, weave it into a tapestry and determine it's ending.

The three fates take on new life throughout literature; they can be found in the in the works of Homer, William Shakespeare, Phillip K. Dick, Barbara Kingsolver, Terry Pratchett, and Neil Gaiman.
