Font – Knitted

Yesterday I posted about a quirky little typeface I found one day and about its uses for design and layouts for knitterly folk, but also the possibility of it perhaps working as a quick and easy way to generate charts for knitted words. Using the graphic I made yesterday, I managed to knit this (please excuse the untidy sample, I only had 15 minutes to knit this in and it hasn’t been blocked or had its stitches manipulated into submission).

I think it is readable and attractive, and due to the relatively equal width/height of the characters and the fact that there are no large blocks of colour, it works very well in stranded knitting. So – if you give an infinite number of knitting needles to an infinite number of monkeys, how long will it take for one of them to knit Hamlet?
