When we went to Pensacola back in Feb, the IO wasnt able to get time off from work so he stayed home. This always makes me a little nervous because he tends to do/buy things that he normally wouldn't do if I was there. This time he bought a new computer. A *bleeding edge* computer (apparently more futuristic than cutting edge) for me. My computer is OLD by tech standards, abt 4 yrs old. We upgraded as much as we could but it would overheat often and just shut down. I needed a new computer, just not a *bleeding edge* one.
I'm not thrilled with it and apparently it's not thrilled with me either. It wouldn't let me get onto blogger. The IO did something to fix it but a week later it was giving me a hard time again. I got my old computer back but even that one isn't working right. Needless to say I haven't been able to post or read other blogs. And I haven't been able to get on Facebook either.
So right now I have to juggle between two computers, the new one for blogger (the IO reloaded everything and I can now get on) and facebook and the old one for Ravelry and my emails. It's getting much more complicated than I want. I will eventually get another computer once we have the funds to build another one (that is the good thing and bad thing abt having an IO that is a computer geek).
Between the two computers I'm hoping to be able to get caught back up. One can at least hope........
So since most of you come for my crafting and NOT my driveling, I DO have some things to share. I have finished one sock.
I really like the way it came out. I still have to weave in ends which means I have yet to cast on for sock #2, but I'm not worried abt SSS. I really want to get these done.
One other thing I worked on was for a Brit on Ravelry. She's doing an art installation and wanted ppl to knit up some squares anywhere from 2.5 to 8" square or anywhere in between using white or cream wool in lace to DK weight. I pulled out some cream sock yarn and knit up a square 6.5 x 7.5".
Baby Girl thinks it is TOO cool that a piece of my knitting will be hanging in a gallery in England!!!! LOL It is pretty cool when you think abt it.
I'm hoping to be back to a regular schedule of posting AND I hope to get caught up with blog reading in the next few days.
