Well, I promised I would reveal the new design from 2021 that got the least amount of love. And that is:
Knit Every Day.
Bless it's heart...I really like it. It's not as though no one liked it. It appeals to knitters and it's small and quick to stitch. But there's no denying it came in last on the list of sales.
In hindsight, I kinda wish I would've finished it into a small pillow (and I may still do that). I personally think it would make a great project bag design. There's even a bonus chart of a smaller basket and needles which would make a great scissor fob.
Alas, it seems there's always a design each year that feels a bit like the unloved step-child of the new designs. Knit Every Day was the one this year.
And to keep with the theme of eating my share of humble pie... Last year's was Maggie's Basket.
You may say I'm guilty of praising my own children, so to speak, but that's just stinkin' cute! C'mon!
And look at that adorable little scissor fob. Tots adorbs, I tell ya:)

I'm Robin, the designer behind October House. You've found my blog, where I ramble on about stitching and sewing and anything else that catches my fancy!
I love quiet colors, gentle stitches and making things by hand.
