4KCBWDAY7 Looking Forward

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!)

Keep in touch and drop by Eskimimi Makes to say hi from time to time and to keep up with latest news about the annual Knitting & Crochet Blog Week.

Happy Blogging!

  1. Thank you for such a great event. It was my first but not the last one. I’ve enjoyed reading so many interesting blogs and posts.
    For my point of view the infogramm and something different days were most interesting days.

  2. Thank you so much for a great event, I enjoyed it so much this year that I can’t wait for next year! Although you definitely need to rest….I hope you get lots of mascot projects, I plan to do mine sometime in May!

  3. Thank you! This week has helped me get back into blogging and remembering what fun it is. The monkey socks are very cute. Thanks for your hard work this week. I hope you are feeling better.

  4. Having only found out about KCBW this week — and a bit too late to get my brain into gear to participate — my only wish looking forward is that I join in next year! Can’t wait already. Such a brilliant idea, I’ve really enjoyed reading everyone’s posts this week.

  5. BLAWG LOVE x infinity = thank you so very much for all you do for this event! I hope you feel very much better soon, and I hope you take a big long rest in the meantime.

  6. Not only did I find a fun blogging event to participate, but I have so enjoyed your blog! I already subscribed to your feed my reader and look forward to reading it from now on!

  7. Eskimimi: I wanted to Thank You for organizing the whole KCBW event. This was my first year participating and I really enjoyed it. The post topics were very thoughtful and entertaining and I’ve learned quite a bit about my ‘knitting personality’. I look forward to next year…

  8. Thank you so much for this week !
    I learned so much, especially how to blog in a different way than usual, I’ll keep it in mind for the future 😉

    See you next year ! (I’ll keep visit your blog anyway 😉 )

  9. Thank you so much for organising this week and for giving us such great prompts to work with.

    You inspired me and challenged me and I have had so much fun participating in blog week.

    Thank You!

  10. Your topics this year truly inspired creativity. I work full-time, though, and found posting every day so challenging. I goofed up a bit–mixing up days–but then set things to rights and now have a sense of accomplishment. I just need to catch up with the other participants’ posts, before adding new stuff to my blog. Thanks again for organizing this annual event.

  11. I was able to do 6 out of 7…the weekend was just too busy to squeeze day 7 in. I had a great time participating and am looking forward to having some browsing time this week to look at all the participating blogs that I haven’t had a chance to read, yet. Thanks for putting this on again! Looking forward to next year!

  12. I hope you are feeling better very soon. It is not nice to be confined to bed without energy but I am glad you had a chance to take some quiet time to read through blogs.

    The House Mascot was a great way to connect with other crafters who may share a similar outlook but also to meet those who have a different approach and learn from them too.

    I enjoyed everyone else’s blogs very much, learnt new things and look forward to participating next time.

    Thanks again to you Mimi and to all the other participants.
