So I’m thinking of making a scarf.

Now I just need to go through my stash for some fingering-weight…

So, I finally updated my WordPress version. The CSS has been updated but it’s not the fanciest… a fresher look is in the works.
Edit: Well, it’s updated… everything except the Gallery section. Probably more general tweaking to come as well!
On a trip to a store I hadn’t visited before, filled with all sorts of decorative goodies, I was tempted to buy the letter “K” to put in Kalena’s room. Then I thought, “I can probably do this” and proceeded to figure it out. After a couple of days mulling it over, I decided to do this project.
After I started working on it, I decided to make this tutorial. So, not all of the steps have pictures, but I will try to make it all clear. I would say this is a medium-level project. It took me about ten hours (over two days) to make all 6 letters.
Items you will need:
1. Audition your fonts.
You will want a sans serif font, most likely. You will probably not have a good result if you choose something really fancy. Compare the letters below.
The first is a good choice. It has a solid shape, distinct edges, and not a lot of curves. The second has skinny serifs as well as a thin line forming the top diagonal part of the letter. The third has far too many curves, as well as parts that are not connected.
