The thing with Thongs...

Google will not let me upload the Door Thongs pattern PDF file to my googlepages or to Google Docs. Are they having a problem with the fact that it's called "thongs"? I don't know why, I have sure come across much, much worse out here.

But I'm pretty excited because the thongs are a big hit!
It's been in a forum post on Ravelry. No, the other post that was not started by me.
It was picked up by Knitting Pattern Central without me even having to submit it.
It's listed in a Yahoo group called LinksLinksLinks.
It's linked in AllCrafts, somewhere, not finding the linky right now...
And apparently it's being talked about in Groupbox, but I'm not a member so I can't tell what they are saying.

My blog traffic jumped way more than when I released "just" a purse pattern. My returning visitors went from averaging in the 20's to the 80's. Now 20 I can believe since I know people lurk, but 80? It's obvious from who's playing in the sandbox over there that a lot of you...no, MOST of you are lurkers. And that's ok with me, really. I lurk too sometimes. But how about leaving a comment today?

You can't mean me, I don't lurk... much!

Great news on the door thong though - too, too funny that people are having any issue with it though :)

Actually I had never read your blog before I found the door thong pattern on ravelry. Perhaps I will lurk around a bit from now on! LOL
