2021 Top Five Knit and Crochet Patterns, Books and Yarns of the Year

At the end of each year, it is a fun time to reflect on all the highlights of the year. This year we saw some big changes, including a few new yarn additions to the KO family, my 20th book launch, close to 100 new knit and crochet patterns and videos, hundreds of new livestream shows, the brand new website for KristinOmdahl.com, and so much more! Throughout the year, the website grew more robust with even more features, up to and including Share a Project and the brand new KO Community Forums launched recently.

My livestream show will finish the year just under 1,000 episodes. WOW! I am so proud of this accomplishment and really looking forward to reaching this milestone sometime in early 2022 (I’m guessing beginning of February but I’ll have a better idea as it approaches). I would LOVE for you to be a part of this because the show would not exist without you. Please consider sharing your story about how the Kristin Omdahl Show has affected you HERE. My intention is to read everyone’s stories live on air on the 1,000th episode. It is going to be amazing. And if you haven’t seen every episode yet, you can browse through all the episodes HERE
