Knitting Letters?
Is it possible to knit letters into work? i know that's a stupid question, but i mean does anyone have a link to a website or video? My great-aunt put the yarn off to the side for me before she died, and i just got it, so i want to do something special with it. i was thinking about having her initials. or any other ideas would be great. thanks!

There are no stupid questions.

Blocks of color like that are usually knit using intarsia. There is a video under advanced techniques.

Duplicate stitch or Swiss Darning is another option. With that you knit the item and then put the letters on with this technique which is a type of embroidery that looks just like it was knit in. It duplicates the knitting stitches, hence the name- duplicate stitch.
