This post is part of the Fourth Annual Knit and Crochet Blog Week by EskimimiMakes. For seven days in a row, EskimimiMakes issues a challenge: a topic for each day, for knitters to blog about. You can find all the topics here. Today is day 3 of the challenge: The Infographic.
Although the Monkey God is not yet completely pleased per sé (the Monkey God is a demanding God), (s)he is at least satisfied that I made plans for an honorary project. The Gnomes in the meantime have forgotten all about me, but the blogweek continues.
The subject of today is infographics. I like looking at infographics because they present information in an easy visual format where it would otherwise take lengthy amounts of text to explai… Who am I kidding? I love reading lengthy amounts of text, and if an infographic robs me of that, I call it a crime!
And that was about the moment when I decided to make an infographic about my books. Taking a look at my bookshelve, I mentally tried to catagorize them, only to realize many of the books don’t fit into catagories and that the catagories actually overlap quite a bit. (Phew, luckily us knitters are much more easily sorted into Houses, right?)
So, my infographic includes not only two completly *cough* accurate pie-charts, but also a Venn-diagram of my bookshelve. What I noticed especially was what type of knitting books I have.
Although I knit from a lot of different sources, a whole chunk of my knitting preferences is missing in my bookshelve! Many independent designer’s patterns, like those of Stephen West, Kate Davies or Tiny Owl Knits, I only have in digital format. Apperently it signifies that as for actually buying physical books, my preferences are slightly narrower: what catagories of books I do own, you can see above.
I (do not) apologize for the long paragraphs of text, and wish you a lot of fun with my infographic.
Oh, and one more thing! These past three days, I’ve tremendously enjoyed reading other people’s blogs in the KCBW. If you want to find more posts like this, google the tag ‘ 4KCBWDAY3 ‘ for thousands of craft infographics!
