4kcbwday7 Looking Forward One year from now, when the 5th Knitting & Crochet Blog Week rolls around, where do you hope your crafting will have taken you to? What new skills, projects and experiences do you hope you might have conquered or tried?
As today is the final day of this year’s Knitting & Crochet Blog Week, my looking forward today is not only about my knitting and crochet but also about blog week itself.
This year’s blog week seemed to go smoothly and with minimal confusion, but with so much inspiring output. I have genuinely enjoyed being able to read all of the blog posts (my favourite day this year perhaps being the infographics challenge, where knitters and crocheters showed their wit and ingenuity with amazing results). It has certainly been a challenge for me to run, especially as I was brought down with a nasty bout of Scarlet Fever on the very first day of the blog week, and so even reading some of the wonderful posts has been a challenge from my sick bed, but I am on the path to recovery now and still have plenty of reading to do.
So, looking forward means looking towards next year. Every year I hope that Knitting & Crochet Blog Week will be bigger and better than the year before, because the more participants we have, the more we grow as a community and an event. I hope that as well as the bloggers that participated en français this year that next year someone will be kind enough to translate the guide to blog week into a third and fourth language and spread the word to knitting/crochet blogging communities in other languages.
So, to wrap up this year, I would like to say thank you to everyone who took part. Also to congratulate all bloggers who managed between one and seven posts this week. Keep an eye out for the posts tagged 4KCBWEC to discover those bloggers who made a marvellous job of actually making their mascot project (relatedly, if you haven’t seen it, I have made one of my patterns free to download for everyone who has participated in blog week but it is a limited time offer, so download soon!)
