Anywho, I digress …

Loosely based on what might have happened. Or not.

I started something!

When I wrote Knitmare, I thought it would be popular 🙂  It got Boinged and my site traffic has never been the same.

If I had thought about it a little more, I would have put a watermark on the image to drive even more traffic my way.  I didn’t, so the image went viral without any link back to my site.  Poo.

Anywho, I digress …

Within hours of popping up on Boing Boing, the image started showing up on a lot of blogs – I found them as they linked back to my site.

I also found the ones that didn’t link back.

Several friends emailed me when the image showed up on Regretsy.  Regretsy took it in a whole new direction. After challenging their readers to knit the masks, they were then auctioned off to raise money for a monster-obsessed little boy with leukemia.  They got $1700.  Not too shabby!

Another friend emailed me about Poorly Dressed. A fashion fail indeed!

I am keeping my eyes peeled for more crazy knitting pics.  When I find them, I will be sure to include a watermark!
