What will the neighbours say....


My 1/4 ton of yarn was delivered this week. Not knowing what a 1/4 ton would look like, I was expecting a huge delivery fork lifted into my driveway whilst the neighbours twitched their curtains in curiosity at the unusual activity at No. 12. A new sofa perhaps, or dining room table?

I was slightly disappointed to see the sprightly driver comfortably lift two average sized boxes from his van and place them in my garage without the need for mechanical assistance. The wool is on cones, wound tightly and bursting with possibilities.

I have said on a previous post that I feel more relaxed now than ever since I started to work for myself, only now I find myself lying awake at night thinking of new designs and patterns and with all that wool at my fingertips it feels like Christmas Morning every day. (maybe a slight exaggeration)

I met with the IT chaps at Business Gateway in Stirling yesterday to have a constructive look at my web site. Lots of good advice and tips. Blogs are a great way to get noticed and I was delighted when a neighbour (who wishes to remain nameless - she knows who she is) mentioned this evening that one of her friends had found my blog - she never said if she found it interesting though which has given me a bit of blogpanic - what if I'm as dull as dishwater?

Anyway insecurities aside, the IT boys mentioned a good way to get traffic to your web site is to have plenty of links to other sites - but importantly for them to link back to your site. So I will update today with a link to a talented young film director who lives a stones throw from my house - www.bbeggtv.co.uk - not much to do with knitting but maybe he could use some of my designs as props when he is directing multi-million dollar blockbusters. I can just see Angelina Jolie-Pitt with one of my bags....

So as the song goes - everybody needs good neighbours...
