It's been a long time coming but it is finally time to announce the winners of the 2012 Readers' Choice Awards! This journey started back in January when we collected hundreds of suggestions for the best in knitting, which were narrowed down to five finalists each in five categories. You then had a month to vote, and thousands of votes came in.
The votes have been tallied and analyzed, and the winners are:
- Favorite Yarn Company: Berroco
- Favorite Needle Company: Signature Needle Arts
- Favorite Knitting Blog: Susan B. Anderson (don't miss my interview with Anderson, too!)
- Favorite Knitting Book of 2011: Knit, Swirl!
- Favorite Knitwear Designer: Sandra McIver
Congratulations to all our winners, and thanks to everyone who participated! It's always so fun to see how these turn out; there's always at least one surprise in the mix.
