I'm setting up a craft hobby for my mum where she will sell her knitted products. Should it be:-

Nanna's Knits
Nanna Knits
Nanna Knit's

and variations of.......etc

I am rubbish with punctuation.

Nanna's Knits means knits which belong to Nanna

Nanna Knits means "my nanna knits clothes" kind of thing

nanna Knit's is wrong.

As Gold says. And I prefer the first option.

Nanna's Knits - if you're saying "various knitted things that have been made by Nanna".

Nanna Knits - if you're saying "Here's Nanna! She knits."

The apostrophe should never be with the Knits (no Knit's ever), unless you're saying that her name is Nanna Knit and something belongs to her. i.e "Nanna Knit's lovely socks" would be right if her name was Nanna Knit. But if you wanted to say that she made lovely socks it should be "Nanna knits lovely socks".

If we are being properly pedantic should it not be Nana? grin

<<aware this may only be a Yorkshire spelling of nana though>>
