After going through all the emails, deleting the dupes and the Russians, there are 915 entries for the contest. 915. That’s a new record, folks! WOW! Thank you all for participating!
As I was going through the entries, I thought wouldn’t it be cool to analyze the results? 915 is a pretty good sample, no? (I don’t really know anything about statistics, so this could be way off.) Kind of like the State of the Knit, as based on what we’d all like to do for the next year.
Alas, my laptop temporarily died on me this afternoon. (It’s be subsequently resurrected.) I got stuck getting out of the city for FOREVER today. Due to some more technical glitches G and I can’t be on online on our laptops at the same time. Just to write this post I had to drag myself out of bed and get on the desktop. So, anyway, I used my alone time today to get through the emails but Miss Meli started calling before I could pick the winners. Hopefully tomorrow – pray for naps. Meanwhile, I have some swatches that I washed DAYS ago that I haven’t had a chance to count and I was going to cast on for a new sweater today. Sorry to be a bummer.
Oh and here’s one piece of analysis paralysis I can share with you: No one, not one of the 915 people who entered the contest, said their goal for 2009 was to knit less.
Chew on that one awhile, why don’t ya.
