My name’s Dani and I’m a writer and ex-film/video producer. I’m addicted to knitting, but am never happy just following a pattern. I always feel a need to do my own thing with it — to “knoodle” it. So that’s what I encourage everyone to do!
These Alphabet People were born from an illicit affair between my knitting and my writing. The two got together one sultry evening and in no time at all, the first love-child André arrived. Shortly afterwards, his sister Babette bounced onto the scene. And the beat goes on. You can check out my knitting designs at Ravelry.
I’m so excited that knitters all over the world–including Australia, England, Scotland, Canada and the USA–are starting their own broods of Alphabet People. My Paco has a sister in Scotland now named Poppy!
With the Alphabet People, it’s all about letting your creativity loose. Select your own colors and yarn textures. Change the hair style or expression. Add an extra set of arms to create a space alien. Create an attitude, an emotion, a personality. Have fun!!
