Two years ago today I started this website. It came into being very late one night as a way to host the pattern for Popped. It was mostly a whim. I thought a handful of folks would download the pattern, and maybe one or two people would even knit the socks.
That’s not quite what happened.
Somehow, over the last two years, this turned into a bit more than a hobby. I’ve released dozens of patterns. Scads of people have actually bought and made them (seeing one of my patterns made by someone else is still trippy every single time). I’ve gotten to take some lovely knitting-centric trips (I’m on another one right now). I wrote a book – a real live actual book – and I’m working on a second. This has become a huge part of my life, and I’m happier for it.
Here’s to the next two years, may they be just as surprising!
