What is Happening??? Mystery Solved!

I had forgotten that I gave my approval back in January for my pattern to be used in a CAL this month LOL

If anyone is interested, the CAL is at Moogly and was posted earlier today.

So, I was checking in on my Ravelry store. Every so often I like to check on the activity of my free downloads, and today was an even bigger surprise than the response to my Dragon Scale Shrug! My Op-Art Afghan Square seems to have exploded in favorites, queues, and especially downloads!

It’s always been a steady download for me, at least 1 or 2 downloads a day, maybe up to 10 or 12 at most in general. I think the most in one day over the past year was 27 back in May 2013. I have had this pattern up for about 6 years now and I remember in the first year having busy download days, but they never broke 100 that I can remember, maybe in the 50’s or 60’s. I’ve even had people message me asking if they can put the link and the photo on their page for a CAL or something over the years, and I would give my permission. Even with that kind of “advertisement”, I have never had so many downloads for this particular pattern like I’ve had so far today.

It is, right now, 5:36pm on May 1st and it is currently at 365 downloads as I type this! I kinda wish I knew what is going on, if there is some kind of mega CAL going on or something? It’s kinda driving me a little nuts not knowing.
