A Nerdy Contest

Contest is over!  We'll draw a winner on 3/12! I have been so happy the past few weeks - one of my favorite designers, Toni Carr, released her new book - Knits for Nerds! I've known about this book for awhile & have been so very excited.  See, I'm a nerd so this hits me right at the sweet spot.

Warmth for Winter Blues Contest!

Thanks everyone - contest is over! We'll draw a winner on 2/13!   Here at Knit Picks, we're on a mission to change the perception of the Winter Blues.  The color blue makes all of us so happy - gazing up the blue sky, watching the ocean waves, seeing a blue jay flying by - so why should "blue" mean sad?

An unofficial survey (with a giveaway!)

Thanks for all of your suggestions!  Comments are now closed - we'll announce the winners soon! Over the past couple years,  I would say that the majority of my personal knitting projects are from downloaded patterns. The popularity of downloadable patterns has been growing every year - for instance, we have almost 1400 patterns in our Independent Designers program, not to mention our popular in-house designs, free patterns, eBooks and book patterns available for download as well. I get requests from the IDP designers a lot, asking me what kind of patterns they should be working on.  Well, we know what we like & what we think would be popular with our customers but I thought I'd ask our blog readers - what kind of patterns would you like to see more of?  Sweaters? Socks? Hats? Easy patterns?  Challenging patterns?  Leave a comment below & let us know!
