Way back in April I decided to knit up Alison's Nothin' But a T-shirt from MagKnits. My orginal idea was to knit the word "knitfomaniac" onto it. Then I had a far better idea:

Which font should I use? Leave your top three choices (ranked from 1 - 3) in the comments. Voting at the Bookish Girl is fair and fun. You may win something. You may not. Your motivation should be bloggy love, not prizes. (Teeheee, have you all ever seen me try to compete for one of these? Shameless.)

Hey - what's this? Three days in a row!!! I'm so HAPPY!

Anyway - back to bizness. I say:

1. C (for Cara!)
2. H
3. F

Of course, now that I've looked at it so many times all I see is BOO - KISH. Like I'm kissing a ghost. Weird.

Oooo, cute, cute! I vote E, F, B, in that order. Curious what you'll select!

I think you should chart them out, and then see which comes out the best. For example, it's going to be really hard to get the star to turn out in C. It's very cute, though; maybe you could embroider it...in sparkly thread...how do you feel about embroidery? or sparkly thread?

I like F and H, but I agree that you should chart that all out first and see which looks best when you finally get to it.

C! i'm loving that star - so retro looking, very fun. and my second choice would have to be B, all curly and sassy, i'm digging the h in particular.

boo kish! ha, kissing a ghost, too funny ;)

Ditto on F and H. I liked A a lot at first, but if you look at it too long, you start to think the K should be a B instead...

C, B, H, although I like them all.

1- E

I think the clean lines are going to be jazzed up by the shape of the knit stiches/intarsia.

Great idea.

I like A, but I can see that the letters might be too smooshed together to be legible if they're knitted. Possible. Have fun!

C all the way! I'd look for a starry sequin for the little star! If I have to pick two other choices, then B and E.

Jeepers - there "might" be a prize...love the lure of a prize!

So the thoughts:

I love C - the little star just drew me in, but the thought of knitting the star scares the bejeebus out of me.

Second choice (because it is my choice right?) is A - I like the way the letters run together, the thought of knitting the letters running together also scares the bejeebus out of me.

Third choice H - it would look good on a t-shirt and the thought of knitting it doesn't scare me as much.

Can't wait to see the finished product!

I do like C the best, but isn't that star going to be hard to knit? Beth had a good idea...either way, you can't go wrong!

Love the playfulness of all of them BUT....as everyone asks, how are you going to chart that playfulness into the total squareness of the knitting chart? I cannot wait to see you genius!

The star got me. I'm a sucker for pimped font, what can I say? Hey, if you still have the dog mange yarn, you can do it in that. Then people can pet you, if they don't mind mangey boobs.

Truthfully, I really love A, but am leery of voting for something that will look like BOOBISH plastered across your, well, your boobs. I wouldn't want to ruin my street cred as a raging feminist...what? Why are you laughing?

A and C seem a bit overdone lately (and in A I keep missing the "I" so it looks like BOOKSH) unless you REALLLLY dig the star... But I agree with Beth about the embroidery--or maybe an applique?

I really dig the retro look of B... but only if you can get the curly serifs to show up. If they don't chart well... go with D - classic for a reason :)

knitfomaniac! I LOVE THAT! But Bookish is very cool, too. You might want to chart them out and see what fits best. But I like C.

I like "D" but think Beth is right... chart 'em out and see what fits...

Soooooooo sorry to leave you feeling stood up while I was at BMFA... I forgot about everybody except DH and DD.... Sooooooo sorry. What else can I say, except I'll be back visiting DD (who now lives in North End!!!) and/or DH's company which is on the border of Reading/Woburn. Please forgive me. PS: would prefer hug to KITA!
