command word-along

this could totally be an idea that nobody is interested in… but i was wondering if any of you all would be interested in knit-a-long of making accessories and embroidering words on them. i think of these words as ‘command’ words because when i learned the french language, that’s what we called them – plus it makes me giggle that my hat’s commanding people to take action in some way. when i made this hat

ben and i spent some very silly times coming up with other command words i could use on hats. i think this kettle started brewing with this hat though, commanding people to ‘craft.’

i was originally just going to ask you for your ideas of words for me to use, but i thought it would be much more exciting to have company :) i could put the word swim on a hat, but since i’m not a swimmer, it wouldn’t make much sense. let me know if you’re interested and i’ll start a thread in the ravelry group.

seriously though, what would you like to command the people around you to do…
i’m thinking my next one might need to say grow…

UPDATE: i started the thread here. hurrah!

  1. yeah i’ll totally do some… except, i’m planning to take some boring already-knit items and add words. so for me it won’t be a KAL, it’ll be an EAL…?

  2. Yay! I just started working on my garterslouch hat, holding double some sock yarn I’ve had FOREVER (since I discovered that I hate knitting socks). I definitely want to do a word-hat for this year’s ‘Localvore’ challenge when harvest season begins, but it will have to be on a different hat since the colors I’m using right now aren’t very harvest-y.
    I’ll come up with a word for this one, though, and you’ll see pics on my blog when I finish it!

  3. Yes! I was going to make something like this from your book for a dear friend of my, using handspun she spun and gave me, so this is the perfect kick in the butt to DO it!
