Now I don't have anyone in my day to day life that's a knitter so on the face of it its not that surprising but a DKC meeting can have well over a hundred knitters in attendance, the DKC Frolic many more times that number and still - how interesting I've never seen a one of those walking around!
The comment got me thinking about what really are the most popular knits on Ravelry so I checked it out and I was surprised to see my impressions didn't come close to accurately reflecting the top patterns...
- Clapotis Scarf - Knitty (11,661)
- Fetching Fingerless Gloves - Knitty (11,399)
- Monkey Socks - Knitty (9418)
- Calorimetry Headband (again - Knitty)
The only one I got right was Monkey Socks!
Beyond that - I found within the first 60 most popular - I had, in fact knit 5...
Irish Hiking Scarf from Hello Yarn (the one in the centre)
...Officially queued 2...
Thanks "C" for holding the mirror up for me!
BTW I've mentioned this before but I want to reiterate - I try to personally respond to all comments that I can - but many comments come in with a "no-reply" address. If you've selected that, you probably aren't surprised when I don't reply but if you haven't chosen that and you don't hear from me its because I'm blocked by doing so by that "no reply" setting :(
