Now as an adult, I work in Cambridgeshire as a College Secretary. I live with my gorgeous husband and cat and my daily commute on the train gives me a bit of time to indulge in knitting & crocheting.
This summer, my big sister Linda decided to relocate back to Scotland after living in sunny Florida for 19 years, and no sooner had she moved back, she saw all the items I've made and straight out, she volunteered to be my Marketing Manager, set up this website and lo, HevvyWool was born. All within 2 weeks! Bless, I love my sister!
Actually, I'd been thinking of selling my work for a while now. Workmates, friends and even strangers on the train have been suggesting I sell my necklaces, but for whatever reasons, I've ummed-and-ahhed about selling. Big Sis has given me the (metaphorical) kick that I need to get selling. The website is almost set-up, and right now, I'm looking at a pile of scarflaces that need to be measured, labelled and modelled. And there are some lace scarves in the cupboard that I put away for safe-keeping (you, know, the kind of safe-keeping that's so safe you forget where it you put it in the first place?). Phew!
Oh yes, and after a week off, it's back to work tomorrow. Wow - lots to do.
