On the first full day that the fall issue of Knitty was live I got over 1,500 visitors. As you can see, that was a bit above average.
Thank you so much to everyone who left a supportive comment. I really appreciate it. I’ve been obsessively monitoring the internet for mentions of my baby, so much so that I didn’t really knit this weekend. So far the comments have ranged from “OMG I love it!” to “it’s too retro” and “it looks like a pineapple.” Honestly, if that’s my negative feedback I think I’m in really good shape.
I am absolutely blown away by this experience so far. It’s so exciting to see my pattern made by Purl Diva, Coffee and Knitting Needles, Libi Lou, Knaughty Knitter, someone in Norway and others. They each had a slightly different take on it and it’s been wonderful to see.
