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 Partnership program, not to mention our popular in-house designs, free patterns, eBooks and book patterns available for download as well. So I’m not the only one!

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!

And since I like doing blog giveaways, I thought I’d sweeten the deal. 


I have these pretty skeins of Glimmer looking for a home!  I’ll randomly choose 4 comments & send out 2 matching skeins of Glimmer – enough for a pretty pair of socks or a sparkly shawl to wear this winter!

So let us know what you think!

Rules: One entry per person. Must have a US or Canada mailing address. No purchase necessary. All comments must be posted on THIS blog post. Comments on other blog posts will not be valid for this contest.  We will close the comments November 3 and draw the winners then!
