It happens that there are 2 baby blanket projects I have done that have
each achieved a level of fame. This was not an intended outcome
— it just seems to have… happened. In both cases, the
receiving baby seems to have enjoyed the blanket, which is all that
The first blanket to achieve some level of fame (or notoriety) is the Dragon
Hide baby blanket (previously
blogged). I’ve seen it appear on completely random other
pages, and if I look at the stats for my blog/web pages, I see that it
gets a fair bit of traffic — probably a hit every couple of days
(which counts as high traffic, for this blog 😉 ).
The second is the Tie-Dye
baby blanket, which I have not previously blogged about, but which
I did log in Ravelry, here.
From Ravelry’s stats, I can see that it’s been viewed over a thousand
times (which is, approximately, a thousand times more than any of my
other projects 😉 ) and over 200 people have fav’ed it.
I have no idea whether how to compare those worlds — the un-Ravelry’ed
Dragon Hide or the un-blogged Tie-Dye baby blanket have each gone off
and struck peoples’ imagination in ways I could not anticipate,
measure, or reproduce. I suppose, now that I have done a drive-by
blogging of the Tie-Dye
blanket, I should quickly post the Dragon Hide blanket to Ravelry, to
see if it captivates anyone there.
Or, not — see point above about what matters. This is just
idle curiosity, and a matter of checking the heartbeat on the blog 😉
Good thing I’m not in the knitting/design business, I guess!
