That’s right: according to Google Analytics, my website has now served up 10,000 pageviews, just 26 days into its existence. (And 3,349 visits from just under 2,000 unique visitors!) I’m very pleased – people are coming! And liking what they see…the average time on site is about 3 minutes, which is quite awhile in Internet time. Considering the effort that went into the revamp, I’m glad to see that people are enjoying the site.
Tonight was largely a lost cause, because I spent most of the evening searching fruitlessly for the little sensor magnet for the loom. I had carefully removed it, set the screw for it in a place where I knew I’d be able to find it again, and…put it, uh, somewhere. I’m sure it was a very clever place, because it’s taken me two hours to fail to find it. Fortunately, I’m pretty sure the folks at AVL will ship me a new one.
And I have ordered a book! Carol (the woman who fitted my sloper) recommended it to me as one of the best books out there on fitting for fashion design, so I ordered a copy from Amazon. It’s titled Fitting and Pattern Alteration: A Multi-Method Approach to the Art of Style Selection, Fitting, and Alteration and is by multiple authors – just look it up on Amazon (or follow the link) if you want to find out more. It’s not cheap by any means, but it looked pretty darn good/encyclopedic when I went through it at Carol’s place. Once it arrives (Wednesday, according to Amazon) I’m going to use it to make all the changes that Carol suggested on the coat pattern. It will be interesting to see how that goes!
