Back up your computer - yes, you!

Hi again!!!

First I must say I'm shocked by how much I miss rambling here. I have SO MUCH to tell you... where to start?

1. I have already bought yarn in Portland. I need furniture, but I bought yarn. You understand. Pics soon.

2. The Schaefer Yarns Heather shawl is done! A teaser shot will appear here as soon as I can get some internet going in my new house. I am really happy with the way it looks and I think it will be a fun project for people who are scared to cast on or bind off 400 stitches. (People like me)

3. Sock Madness... I am now out. I let myself out because I couldn't compete during the move. It's okay. I made it through three rounds which is two more than I hoped for.

I am sad that the picture of me knitting on a roller coaster didn't win the creative contest for that round. There. I admitted it.

4. I am eating like it's my last day on death row.

5. I don't know what your plans are for later but might I suggest backing up your computer? Ask me why I say this. I'll tell you. It started with a noise.

A loud chirping noise that turned out to be a bad, bad thing. I now have a replaced hard drive and I also learned where to take a Mac in Portland. OR. for repair. (Mac Force)


That's about it until I can get some pictures going. Long blog entries without pictures is a drag.

Finally, thank you for the kind words lately - they are really really helping!

I'm here...

I moved to Portland.

I have a new place to live. I will set it up as soon as I can and return to knitting, spinning and blogging as soon as possible.

Please don't give up on me! I'm still here. Just a bit overwhelmed and adapting fast.

I will say this is a very knit-friendly town. I look forward to more exploring.

More later :-)

Moving Day

I apologize for the prolonged absence.

Today is moving day.

I'll share more later... but for now, would you like a slice?

One is eggplant. One is meatball and onion. Take your pick.

Fiber Friday 4/4/08

I am certainly breaking a lot of rules by posting this photo but I cannot help myself.

Here I am, knitting a sock, on a ride at Disneyland.

I was going to try to explain this, but I think in this case perhaps the photo tells the story.

Infer what you will.
