This has been another spectacular year at ESK! We started the Booster Club where you all earned badges for successes & failures in your knitting, we added exclusive Georgia colorways from Madelinetosh where you refreshed the heck out of the website at 8 AM to snag skeins of Little Magnolia, and we added so much yarn to the shelves that you all truly lived up to the Year of the Sheep! Let’s take a closer look at all the fun we had this year:
Quarter 1: Colorwork, Headgear, Shawls
Quarter 2: Hitofude, No Sleeves, Mitered Squares
Quarter 3: Socks, New-to-You, Sweater Free-for-All
Quarter 4: Selfless Knits, Felting, Chunky Knits, Triathlon
Q4 Selfless Knits – Popular Vote: ElloKnits Random Winner: LauraPNW
Q4 Felting – Popular Vote: Naora Random Winner: PastorErinKaye
Q4 Chunky Knits – Popular Vote: HonestBloom Random Winner: enw001

The race results have been changing all year long – the Yarnicorns and Fleecy Foxes have been trotting and slinking between 2nd and 3rd place for months. The Cowlettes were the most enthusiastic and friendliest with over 26,000 posts on the Ravelry forums. We all wanted to just hang around the nest with them. The Mighty Woolri remained on top and took 1st place! Congratulations Team Woolrus – team members with over 500 yards purchased in 2015 will receive $20 store credit. Those credits will be added to your account by January 15th.
Woolrus – 95
Yarnicorns – 86
Fleecy Foxes – 84
Cowlettes – 77
The End…for now!
We can’t thank you enough for another awesome year! We fell in love with the newest ESK kitten (little Miss Molly), watched Levi grow taller than his Mom, conquered trivia, knitted-a-long each month, earned badges, solved puzzles, and discovered so much new yarn! 2015 is sadly over but 2016 Yarnathon and Beyond: A Space Race has just begun. Check out the new additions to the website to see what we have in store this year!
