A half-million LOTS and LOTS of views. Thank you, I am humbled

Today, TECHknitting reached a major milestone--a half-million LOTS and LOTS of views since inception. Thank you all so much for coming by. I am humbled by your patronage.

Edited 9-8-10 Actually...
Further investigation reveals that the number of page views is actually far higher than a half-million (something to do with what page/s the stat-counter counts). It is now estimated to be more than 1 million views, and maybe even more than 1.5 million?!? eep.

If it seems like things are winding down here at TECHknitting, don't believe it for a second. There are tons of projects taking place backstage here--mostly test knitting and development of patterns for small shaped things, such as gloves. Like the new Tulips buttonholes, some of these patterns have been in development for years and years, so a big push came on this summer to try and make some progress. And, of course, the series on style and body shape is "to be continued"--it's at a standstill now (too many other projects) but lots of new illustrations have already been done and these should come out this fall.

Also coming out this fall will be an article in Interweave Knits, winter edition, on how to install zippers with absolutely **no** sewing. It's all very hush-hush at the moment, but I'm hoping you'll like it--this new procedure will make zippered knitwear a breeze, instead of the sewing chore it presently is, and all will be revealed in due course.

So, thank you dear readers, for making TECHknitting a stop on your internet rounds and staying to visit for a while. We'll talk more soon.

Have a great rest-of-the-summer.
