I am writing my first ever blog post. I don't know how I have lived without this particular form of communication for so long - its not as if I have ANYTHING else to do after all, Ahem. Well, it remains to be seen how I will make time for this, but it looks fun, and I'm going to try.
Its just three days before I launch my new website (this one) and my re-branded business and it feels a bit like pushing a new boat out on a lake when you have no idea if it will sail or not. This is despite the fact that I have been trading as LibbyTDesigns since 2007. I started as a sole trader and then in 2010 it became a private limited company, when I got an exciting new contract with John Lewis. More about that later, I am sure, but for now, suffice to say that things have moved on and I am turning yet another corner with the launch of my own designer brand yarn and my first proper 'Collection' of patterns. I hope you enjoy browsing all this as much as I have enjoyed creating it all. It always amazes me how much longer everything takes than expected, and how much work goes in behind the scenes to creating a product, and I hope it will all be worth the blood sweat and tears! Got to dash now, as lots to finish off
I'm crazy about yarn, Scotland, food, my husband and my three girls, and I live in a perpetual state of organised chaos. Some just call it creativity.
