I hope you’re all have a great season as this year comes to a close <3 We’re coming up on the blog being 5 years old now! I can’t believe how much it’s grown over this time, and I can’t wait to see how it progresses.
In the meantime, I thought I would make a top ten list of the most popular posts from this year as a fun look back. And maybe if you’re new to the site or missed a post you’ll see something you didn’t know about!
My favorite part of the year was definitely finally introducing embroidery designs into my free patterns! Although it’s a lot of work, it was very satisfying to get to see the designs come together in thread. It’s my 2019 resolution to get completely caught up with the most popular past designs!
I was surprised that the octopus amigurumi made it to the list <3 I know there are a lot of other great amigurumi pattern-makers out there, so I can’t really compete. But I find illustrating the charts to be challenging and fun. And I will be the first to admit I have a yarn-buying problem, so finding uses for it is always good 😀
I was also surprised that the Hooded Cowl made it onto the list 🙂 I always enjoy taking a break from plush-making for some cute accessories. I have some ideas for more Halloween-themed wearables next year, hopefully they’ll get just as much love!
Thank you for all the amazing suggestions for patterns over the year! I’ve heard a lot of really great ones, like a shark, T-rex, seal, alpaca, etc. I’m always open to hear suggestions though, so don’t be afraid to mention something in the comments. Thank you all so much for being fans of my blog and my work! I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for all of you! I hope you enjoy what’s to come in 2019!
