In complete and utter shock

So I recently checked on the stats on number of visitors and hits for the month of January 2010 and gosh, was I ever surprised!

In December 2009, I had a total of 28,589 hits. In January 2010, I had a total of 69,717 hits. That’s more than double in one month alone and since revamping into my crafts site, I’ve averaged 20,000 to 25,000 hits per month. And I would very much like to say thank you, thank you, thank you! For all the interest in this site and my work.

Part of the huge jump in visitors, I will admit, is due to the two free patterns that I have here (Crochet Ribbed Cowl, posted December 2009, and Ruse – A Cloche-Inspired Crochet Hat, posted January 2010). However, much to my pleasant surprise, some of my articles that I’ve written have also gotten their fair share of hits! Two of the frontrunners would be my articles on amigurumi and finding free patterns.

Despite my, ahem, lack of posts so far from mid-January to now, I’ve been busy with schoolwork as well as working on some projects which include a lace-work scarf (crochet) and a preemie hat (crochet, for donation). I also plan on getting a few preemie hat patterns (free!) to encourage others to make hats for donations to their local hospital as well.

I hope everyone’s been having a lovely February so far! Feel free to suggest article ideas or projects for me to try, I always like getting suggestions.

    Out of curiosity do you crochet clothes for your dolls at all? Also, I think that making preemie hats and donating them is a wonderful idea. I would, but sadly I fail at crocheting and knitting.

      I have crocheted hats for my dolls and have knitted sweaters for them as well. I’m a lot better with knitting on a smaller scale than I am crocheting – my eyes get a little cross-eyed just thinking about it!

      I started making preemie hats last year – I donated a bag of them to a local hospital, I like how they’re always welcomed by the staff there.
