I would love to knit a big M and K for our bed for the kitties to snuggle against. :)

amchart said...

My kids would love a knitted alphabet. How fun! Really enjoy your podcast (since my daughter helped her technologically challenged mom get it set up on her ipod!)

Bethany said...

Pillows for my daughter's bed!

Ashley said...

I would love to make initials for our bedroom walls!

Marilyn a.k.a. Merry said...

I'd knit a snarky comment for my friend's wall. : )

I feel like so many babies are coming into our circle, and this would be such a cute gift. I need this!

wooleygromit said...

I would knit my 8 week old daughter's name for her bedroom in our first house that we're moving into tomorrow.

Lisa said...

Funny, my 18 daughter is not keen about my knitting. In fact, I knit her a cabled hat and fingerless mitts this past winter that still have not been worn. My 22 yo son is just the opposite. He loves everything I knit for him and proudly wears the hats and mittens. I'm loving the Knit the Alphabet book and would knit my daughter (yep the one not knit-worthy) a "K" for her college room. I'd also knit names for my younger nephews and nieces- they would love them! Thank you!! llmcguire on Rav

Drae said...

I think I would knit up "REST" to go above my bed

Linda Rumsey said...

I'd knit my daughter's name, as she loves a personalised room!

Donna Hall said...

I have a daughter who will be going to college next school year. It would be a great gift to give her for her dorm.

kathleen moul said...

Sitting here listing to your 'no like it' from your son. When my daughter was a toddler (she's now 31), I knit her an Aran sweater. She screamed every time I got it near her. Took a while before I knit for her again.

kathy h said...

I would knit all three grandkids there names. Thankfully they only have 3-5 letters in their names.

Aryn said...

I would love this book! I'd definitely spell out my kids' names!

Alison Hellyer said...

I want to knit my two lovely girls their names.

Joanna said...

I would love to knit my three-year-old daughter's name since she just learnt how to spell it. It is her proudest achievement.

seestephykint said...

I would knit the name of the new addition to my family. My cousin recently had a baby, and it would be really neat to have a piece of decor that would be useful later for learning how to spell her name correctly.

Erin said...

I'd make the initials of all of my college roommates to send to them! We graduated this past spring and are all starting our new homes. I'm sure knit initials would look great!

Emily P. Brown said...

I would knit my initials so I can spruce up my dorm room when I go off to college next year. They'd be a great way to add something snuggly in a brand new place!

Kathy Conrad said...

I would knit a word or phrase for my daughter's wall.

Liz said...

Hi! I just discovered your podcast, and I had a delightful near-hour earlier today listening to it. I'm sad you'll be on hiatus until July, but I'm glad for the opportunity to catch up on your older episodes before you come back!

My seven-year-old stepdaughter has a VERY uncommon name, and, as such, very rarely gets any items with her name on it. Anything that has her name is, of course, personalized for her. She loves the handknitted items I've made for her, so I'm sure she'd love a set of letters spelling her name for her bedroom here!

Diane M Howard said...

I would love to knit little letter pillows to throw all over a bed or a chair. They look really fun!

ravelry: dinaripper

Maria M said...

Thank you for offering this contest! My daughter, who is 9 years old, recently learned to knit. I thought we could work on her name together to decorate her (soon to be) new room. The necklace looks absolutely lovely, as well! nysunshine@justbeads.zzn.com

cockney blonde said...

Ooo, I would love to be able to knit letters for all my grandees but not sure if you post to UK, x

Migknits said...

I would use the alphabet letters for a 'sign' in the window of the yarn shop I knit for, as well as some cuddle toys for my 2 yr. old great granddaughter.

FabricFascination said...

My daughter (also a knitter) homeschools her daughter. I would love to knit this alphabet with her to use for a fun way to teach reading to her 6 year old.

Carla said...

What fun- I would love to win the necklace and book! I loved hearing your son's reaction to the sweater- ahhh

Andrea said...

I would knit my son's name for his room. All sweaters and cowls my mum or I have knit for him have been declared not wearable because apparently they were all scratchy - even the cotton one... so no more knitwear for him! ;-) But I think he'd really like the letters!

Peggyann Huffman said...

How marvelous! I have been hoping for decades some young talented designer would come up with this kind of pattern! I'm a Grandmother now and I would knit letters for the younger generations and just maybe inspire a few of them to learn the fine art of knitting.

evianlake said...

I loved the idea of using them as pillows! But I'd probably spell out my godson's name for the parents too decorate his nursery.
Thanks as always for the chance to win! I'm ShadowAP on Rav.

Barb Christenson said...

I would knit the word "NEST" to put on my bird duvet.

abbie said...

My four year old refused to wear any of her knits until this year. Actually, the only the only handknit she'll wear is your Playful Stripes Cardigan (she wears it daily and even sleeps in it). But sadly this morning, we discovered she lost it at daycare

glongley said...

What a fun book, would be great fun to do some ABC.

thewalshfam said...

I would love to knit a W for our living room couch. This is such a cool idea! I think it would be such a cool gift, too! Katie W.

tlobner said...

I would use the letters to knit a word, maybe...then attempt to connect them and hang or just lay the letters side by side.
Thanks for the giveaway.

Hishandmaid said...

I would knit my daughter's name and hang it on the wall

knittingmotheratgmaildotcom I'm "Hishandmaid" on Ravelry

Alma said...

Oh, so many uses! Definitely initial pillows for my kids. And maybe for the master bedroom too. Since our last name is so short, we could also make some big ones for wall decoration.

Thanks for a fun episode!

Alma said...

My rav name is: acho

AyntBee said...

These letters would be great gifts for all kinds of occasions! That necklace is beautiful, I sure hope to be the lucky winner.

Laura Pass said...

I would love to knit a garland spelling 'Mr & Mrs Walsh' for my wedding :) it would be a lovely touch and suit my venue and theme perfectly!

deedalee said...

How about everyone gets an hand-knit initial pillow for Christmas!

Rachel D. said...

I would knit an initial for each of my nieces and nephews. Also one for me and my husband to display in our house :-)

Helena Georgette Mann said...

I am not sure how I would use the letters. It would be a new try for me. The necklace is lovely & I know I would wear it!
Abbie so sad about the loss of the sweater :'(

I'd start with a letter "E" for my brand new niece Evelyn!

Jess Kahele said...

My toddler son was never a fan of wearing knitted garments and that has not changed even now that he is 10. More knitting for me!

I would make the word "knit" with the letters to hang on my wall. :)

Emily said...

Hilarious episode! I love these letters and would knit some for my kids, as well as for all of the babies that my friends are having.

Brenda said...

I'd love to make some letters for my 2 grandkids.
Regarding your son's rejection of the sweater: I feel for you, since that happened to me as well. And my son (around 7) had picked out the pattern and the yarn himself! That was the last sweater I knit for him...
Back to your problem. Maybe if you let him choose special buttons for the sweater, he'll like it better. They could be teddy-bear-shaped, or shaped like cars or trucks... you'll find lots of choices on Etsy. Just a thought!

Cheers
Brenda (goodstuff on Rav)

JennyW said...

I'd like to knit my daughter's name but as it has 8 letters it could take a while, so I'd probably stick to initials. And in my dream craft room I would knit 'KNIT'!

Nancy said...

I made that sweater for my grandson. He looked adorable in it and seemed to like it, but this whole winter has gone by and I am pretty sure he has never worn it. Oh, well, what can one do?
Anyway, I'd knit my grandkid's initials as fun pillows for their beds.
Thanks, Alana, for another wonderful season of podcasts!

Kendra said...

I would love to knit initial pillows for my husband and I. So cute!

Elizabeth Hoffman said...

As I sit and listen to your podcast, I am making a cardigan for my niece. I hope she does not have the same reaction as your son!!! LizzieH on ravelry

Elizabeth Hoffman said...

BTW, my google pic is from Alaska, such a wonderful place! Enjoy your trip.

Linda said...

I was really chuckling listening to your son. We've all heard those words! I'd love to try the knitted alphabet letters. I'd use them on my couch.

I would knit an I <3 U for my newest little ones nursery. And I loved the idea the author had of putting SIT above the couch! (Cords06 on rav)

Paula Bannon said...

Lovely book! I'd like to knit the letters of my new baby niece's name: Emerson. It'd look so cute in her nursery!
MissPaulaKnits on Ravelry

Knitnchick said...

Knitting letters and suspending them from a decorative wire to identify my children's bedrooms would be really cute. My kids have short names so that would be quite easy.

Sherryn said...

My 3 and 6 year old boys can't seem to keep their hands to themselves right now. I'd knit "No" and "Stop," because I'm losing my voice from saying it so much. sherryn76 on ravelry.

Darlene said...

I would knit these for my 1st Grandbaby due in June! Then something for me ...wall art is beautiful! I love the knit me something silver necklace!

I'd make letter pillows for my daughter, my son and his fiancee and their beloved pooch, and MORE!

Teresa said...

Letters for future grands and greats. The texture would make great teething toys, larger ones for over the crib. There are so many idea in my head. Oh, and for the big brothers or sisters. Can't forget them.

Boston Knitter said...

I'd love to spell something out on my couch (maybe "NO DOGS" but since the monster can't read....), or perhaps across the head of my bed! Maybe our last name for now, and once we have a mini, the mini's name. That necklace is precious!

Janice said...

I would first knit my granddaughter's name (Clara). Then I would start on the rest of the alphabet so that when she is old enough she can start learning her letters. I'm sockmonkey628 on rav.

Karen said...

I'd knit my grandson's initials for their rooms. p.s. I'm a selfish knitter now that the grandkids are old enough to have an opionion about their knitwear - 'no like it' would break Grandma's heart. Your podcast was hilarious!

Jessica Powers said...

I really want to knit up the word 'MAKE' and claim a corner of our living space for just that purpose. Or else gift knit initials for new babies my friends have.

f1bercat said...

I would love to knit letters for my many nieces and nephews for their bedrooms.

The Alaska Venhauses said...

I think the idea of knitting "RELAX" and placing them on a couch sounds like fun. Very cute book and ideas.

I would knit some letters to sell to raise some money for our local force cancer support group. They are wonderful and really helped me get through my treatment recently. X

I would love to knit the whole alphabet! Like you said, a great learning tool for kids! But, I like the "LOVE" pillows idea too

Susan Forsyth said...

my 3 1/2 yo granddaughter is learning her letters so what a fun way for children to learn - pick out the colours, watch it being knit, maybe do some of the stitches, help to stuff it and all the while learning.

beckylinn said...

Great episode! I thought of so many uses for the knitted alphabet! I'd love to do an ampersand or initials for my family. Thanks for the giveaway!

Susan Ellis said...

Sorry your son didn't share your enthusiasm for his sweater! I would knit letters as baby shower gifts.
Thanks

Susan aka paintermom said...

I love the idea od making SIT for a sofa. I would also you my yarn to knit A Riot Of Color for my booth at fiber festivals.

Elizabeth Lax said...

I would knit two C's, one for each if my twin grandsons.

christina said...

As soon as I saw your letters, I wanted my own copy of this book! I would knit my initials to put in my office at work.

Gracieanne said...

I think it would be so cute to hang the name of a baby, from the ceiling, like a mobile, over a crib.

Michael Tagart said...

I would knit the entire alphabet and use it to teach my niece how to spell!

Janet Arthur said...

I think these letters would be excellent for young children to teach "themes" - such as S.H.A.R.E. and S.A.F.E. - so many opportunities to teach and be creative! Thank you for the opportunity to win such wonderful gifts.

Stela Burdt said...

Just purchased "Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf" for myself and my three-y.o. son, who is fascinated by my knitting and constantly asking me to knit him things! (Pirate hat, birds, other animals). His first name starts with "K" and he loves to find letters everywhere we go! Would love to knit him up a bunch, starting with his name.

localyarnz said...

I would love to knit the letters READ for my almost 13 year old daughter's room.

Meg Scamman said...

I would love to knit letters for the names of my 3 year old granddaughter and her soon-to-arrive sister. What a fun project!

sydney janvrin said...

Hi Alana, I love Claire Garland's patterns! I also made several "babes" years ago along with 2 horses for my girls- one gray, 1 brown. We own a private swim club (opened in 1959) called "The Surf Club": I think it would be cool to knit "Surf Club" in several shades of blue for our lobby. We have fun bringing surf style to Central IL!! Thanks, Erin

JudyAnn said...

I'd like to make initials for baby gifts. Last initial before the baby is born, then first initial afterwards. Cute book!

Savannagal said...

The letters are cute, but honestly, I'm not sure I'd made any - at least until we have more youngsters in the family again. I really like the necklace though.

Emano said...

I would make the first initials of my kids; after the ampersand was mentioned, I thought that a bride's and groom's initials could be cute.

asdfjkl; said...

mr & mrs for a wedding gift for my friends.

Karen said...

I would love to knit a K for Karen and put it on top of my fireplace mantel in my craft room. The neck lass is soooo beautiful. I love silver and knitting. Wow what a lovely combination. Thanks Alana for your show. Wonder as always. Can't wait to hear you in July.

Carol said...

I told my husband about your son not wanting to wear the sweater, and he said "It's a guy thing". So there you go, LOL!

I would love to win the book...not sure exactly how I would use the letters yet (maybe form a short word like "home" and hang it on the wall), but I would be interested to see how the shaping of these letters is done.

Enjoy your well-deserved break Alana!

I would love to knit a K and J to hang on the wall of me and my husbands room! My mom and dad also have those initials and as a little girl I loved seeing the K and J heart my dad wood burned into a heart for their room. It could be that one special thing my kids will also remember about my room. I can't wait to see who wins!

I would probably get too ambitious and try make my blog name, "knitbyahenshop," because it is an anagram of my full name and I could rearrange it as needed!

RealDeals said...

Hi Alana, I just wanted to say you shouldn't worry about not having the patterns on hand at Stitches West. I was one of the many who asked for the Sprig :) It's OK, it only makes me more eager for the pattern, I am looking forward to it.

Also, I'd love to be entered to win the necklace :)

Thanks, Diana (DeeSadie on Rav)

I would knit initial pillows for my great nieces and nephews

Heston Folks said...

Loved the story of your little guy and his Gramps sweater. He looks adorable in it, complete with the grouchy look the designers mention on the pattern! I just knit this one, too. The next time that you want him to wear it, you could sneak something into the pocket to surprise him. I love pockets for this reason. When I give this sweater to my niece for her new little one, I plan to tuck in some little thing for her to find. As always, I will be mindful of small things, choking hazards, etc. But pockets are just begging for surprises, and life is better with surprises!

Anne Gardner said...

I like LOTS of pillows on the bed. I think it would be fun to knit the word DREAM and attach letters to each other so they can top of the collection.

Hannah Knight said...

This is my first listen to your podcast, and indeed first visit to your blog; I'm very excited to have found you!
I have just had a very similar "No Like It" experience. After lovingly knitting this fabulous tweedy cardigan (I guess that's uk speak for sweater?) that have been on my needles for at least 3 months, darling son responds with exactly that: No like it! Well actually he says "No Like-egg" but it's pretty obvious what he means! I told him he couldn't go outside to play with the dog without it on, which kinda worked but I think he made a pact with her to immediately get it off him by attacking the sleeve! Needless to say cardigan came straight back off...
Anyway, the knitted alphabet book looks awesome, I think I'd endeavour to make enough for the Boy to use when learning to spell! Or at least his name.
Looking forward to exploring your blog & what I've been missing all this time! Happy knitting :)

The Weekday Chef said...

I love these knitted letters, My kids would love them and they would make great personalized gifts for people of all ages.

As a mum of 5, I think I'd have to knit one in each child's favourite colour for their bed.

I just moved after twenty years, so I would love to knit my new address to put outside my front door. I also so love the idea of knitting the name of a new baby as a special gift. Perhaps my favorite idea from your conversation was refrigerator magnet letters.

Jenni said...

Listening to you and your know and the No like it sweater reminded me of my 3 yo. I did the Knitmore trick of getting really cool buttons for her current sweater. I'm also love idea of knitting an alphabet. Right now I'm thinking mid sized letters to put into a bucket to help my 3yo learn her letters. But I'd also like to knit their first initial for their beds. Maybe even exand on the magnet idea and make it so the letters can stick together for their name.

Melissa said...

I love the idea of an L, B, and I for my kids' beds, and if I feel even more ambitious, I would do their entire names (thank goodness they have short names!) It would also make great gifts for my friends with new babies.
