Some points to ponder…

Google Trends for "knitting"

Google searches for “knitting” are clearly related to seasonal changes in the Northern Hemisphere. And yet, the #1 and #3 regions for “knitting” searches are New Zealand and Australia.

It also seems that knitting popularity peaked a few years ago and now we’re on a downward trend.

Google Trends for "knitting, crochet"

You see a similar pattern for crochet, but the peaks and troughs are less dramatic. Chile, Argentina, Peru, and Australia are #1, #3, #5, and #7 in the region list.

Google Trends for "knitting blog"

Knitting blogs, or at least Google searches for, seem to have hit critical mass some time in 2005. The #2 language is Turkish.

Enter Ravelry…

Google Trends for "knitting blog, ravelry"

Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.
