Most Popular Posts and Highlights for 2017

This year has been a whirlwind of learning for me – both in knitting and in web design, social media, and all of the many aspects of running a blog.

Here’s what you enjoyed the most this year:

1. Beginner Infinity Scarf Easy and Fast First Knitting Project!

This post — especially the video tutorials — took a lot of work to pull together. I’m so proud of it, and I’m so glad other people are finding it and using it.

2. Penny Dreadful’s Ethan Chandler Sweater in Crochet!

3. Penny Dreadful: Gothic Sweater Chic

There is no doubt in my mind that my readers really love Penny Dreadful.

Next year I’m planning both a sweater and cowl design in the style of Penny Dreadful. Sign up for my newsletter featuring my weekly blog posts so you’ll be sure not to miss it!

4. Lise Condis Fiber Artist Who Explodes with Color

Lise was my very first Variegated Yarn Tales interview, and that makes it extra special.

5. Knitting vs Crochet: Which Do You Want to Learn?

This quiz was a lot of fun to design, and so far I’ve received a lot of positive feedback on its accuracy.

My highlights this year:

One of the many photos where I don’t look so cute and I’m trying to figure out what the heck to do with my face.

Getting comfortable in front of a camera is still a skill I’m working on. Thank goodness I have such a talented and patient husband.

Becoming obsessed with Instagram, and planning on focusing on Pinterest in the new year.

Dipping my toe in design; I have lofty goals for more designs next year.

Happy new year everyone!

My name is Monica Rodriguez and I can’t stop fidgeting with yarn. I live in Albuquerque, NM with my husband. We belong to two terriers who manage to cuddle us just enough to keep us from revolting.

Let me know what you think!
