It's not what you know, it's who you know

As I'm about to leave this construction industry caper, I need to milk it for all it's worth in the meantime.

So when one of the purchasing blokes walked past a few minutes ago, I asked 'So if I wanted to get some tig welding rods, how would I go about it?' He was curious about my new interest in tig welding... until I explained that they are the perfect thing for lace blocking. His wife is a knitter and they are both impressed that I am too.

He then contacted a supplier who he is going to see on Thursday anyway. All I need to do is give them the lengths I want and they'll run them straight out of the machine for me. Fantastic since the blocking wires I've seen online are $$exy.
