A 2015 & 2016 Top 100 Knitting Blog!
When the rest of the world talks about social media, they’re thinking Facebook, Twitter, etc. Knitters think Ravelry.
Blog followers received our quarterly newsletter on November 6th. It included a free Ravelry code for this Estrellita Hat in November. The hat features the Showy Decrease on the brim and the raised star pattern. It’s part of our Showy Rib tutorial series.
Readers were engaged, they were downloading a few dozen patterns a day and then, this morning, KABAM! My inbox contained 600 download notices at 6 am. Ravelry has done its thing and the word has spread!
I’ve received several nice messages from you in my Ravelry inbox. It seems that you’re already starting your holiday gift knitting.

I’m so glad you’re following us, but I don’t have your email. This means I can’t send you previews of upcoming announcements. If you send me your email (firstname.lastname@example.org) I will add you to the newsletter list. Otherwise, just make sure to check the Bonus Materials page from time to time. We’ve just added new materials.
P.s. Over 700 now! Wait, 720, Top 20 on Ravelry… Yikes! 🙂
P.p.s. As I head to bed, we are #1 on Ravelry today with over 2,000 downloads. Thanks to all of you!!
