Wow! Imagine my surprise when I woke up Wednesday morning and my website stats had exploded!
The weirdest part? Most of the hits were new, from the UK mostly (with a few other European countries) — and they arrived at my site through various search terms about knotting shuttles.
Is there something going on centering around knotting? A museum display or lecture, perhaps? Someone on a forum getting interest rolling? Curious minds want to know! 🙂
You see, I’m new to not only knotting shuttles, but embroidery in general. I love it! It’s so fun and relaxing. Even my husband will sit with me while we watch TV and knot with me. He has even asked if he could learn to embroider a small, simple project for himself!
I’ve had a lot of people — especially non-costumers — asking me what I’m talking about, all this knotting and knotting shuttles business. They’re not sure how or why I’m doing this. A few have even asked for videos, so they can understand better.
My husband and I decided to try to make some videos. He’s made a few non-related videos and would like more practice. Although I’m still new to it, there is so little out there about knotting — I might as well! Besides, it’ll be fun, and perhaps I’ll meet other knotters and pick up more tips and resources for study.
So keep an eye out. Hopefully the videos will go smoothly and I can share them soon. As I said, I don’t claim to be an expert — far from it, actually — but it’s so fun and relaxing, I just want to share it with others!
And thanks for visiting!
