As I photographed these socks today for Instagram, I wondered how many times someone has knit my So Vanilla sock recipe, so I logged in to Ravelry to take a look. There are 306 projects in Ravelry under So Vanilla. Now quite a few of those are mine since it’s my goto recipe, so I dug a little further.
7867 downloads just from Ravelry. It was featured in LoveKnitting’s e-mail newsletter at one point so I checked there too. Over 3000 downloads.
So Vanilla has been downloaded almost 11,000 times in the two years since it’s been published.
I sat in awe and gratitude that 11,000 knitters have downloaded my sock recipe to find out how I put my toe-up socks together.
I’ve been preparing to revamp So Vanilla and I’ve talked about it for about six months. With proper formatting, photos and to make it much easier to read. You can expect that in the next few months.
I’m also getting ready to send my newest pattern off to testers in the next few days. This one I’ve been working on for months and I’m incredibly excited to share it once it’s published.
Thank you to everyone who has knit one of my patterns, downloaded one of my patterns or considered knitting one of my patterns. It all means so much to me. I was afraid to publish patterns for so many years and now when I see my patterns on Instagram, Facebook, or Ravelry it just makes me incredibly happy and uplifted. I’m grateful everyday that I was able to push my fear aside and share my work with the world. Thank you.
My KAL has been extended to November 30th, if you’ve been working on a pair of socks for it – you’ve still got time!
My first podcast episode will go up on YouTube this week on November 1st! Another fear I’m pushing through!
