I think it's a general rule that I'm more likely to make a _useful_ font when I have a specific project that needs it, and that's the case with Knits and Scraps, a warm and huggy hand-drawn font (yeah, I do a lot of those) created for a book I'm finishing right now, designed with the basic goal of marrying the normal look of my hand-drawn romans (Apple Butter, Phaeton John, Heirany, etc) to a typewriter-inspired design. The result benefits from the easy legibility of typewriter forms but has the unexpected curves, jaunty serifs, and warm roundness of my more usual fare. I like it a lot; here's hoping you enjoy it too!
Knits and Scraps is a full-keyboard set without extended characters. The base glyphs were hand-drawn in felt-tip, late one night at Luciano's Pizza & Wings, a favorite hangout of mine in Denver, Colorado. The hand-drawn masters were then weight-adjusted, smoothed, and otherwise tweaked in a paint program.
Knits and Scraps font contains 103 defined characters and 94 unique glyphs. The font contains characters from the following unicode character ranges: Basic Latin (93), Latin-1 Supplement (9).
