Waiting Is Hard!

My computer is completely dead - the motherboard is fried. My brother is giving me his old one when he's finished transferring his stuff to his laptop, but I will still have to get my things moved to it, so I don't know when I will have a working machine again. Boo. Since I'm not spending my time online I've been getting lots of stuff done. My spinning wheel has been getting lots of action and the yarn I spun is really good - the best I've done. I spent a few days dyeing some fiber and it turned out really cool. I've been knitting more for the Harry Potter Knit and Crochet House Cup than I have in a really long time. Before the computer crash I had loaded my ipod with lots of podcasts, some of them new to me. I'm glad I did, too. One of them will be deleted - halfway through the first episode I listened to they got too annoying and, really, if you work with yarn at all you should know what "ombre" is and that it's different than "hombre" and "umber". Most of them are great, though, and when I get back on ITunes I'll have loads of new episodes to listen to. Sorry no pictures again. Hopefully soon I'll be able to show all of the things I've been making. Until then, have a great weekend!

When we lose a computer, we realize how much of our modern lives have become tied to online activity. And how nice it is to live offline, too.

Oh I am just miserable without access to my online life! Hope you get the computer sorted soon, but it does sound as though you are being very productive in the meantime. xxx

I feel your pain. Mine's dying a slow and agonising death and it won't be long before it's life is over! Glad you're being productive in the face of adversity. xxx
