computer is broken
must rebuild operating system
it has left the building
should have back in a week

Lazy sunday

Good News: I have finally finished the Sunday Swing socks. They are wide, they will most likely go to sister.
I can now cast on Wicked. I can hardly wait ;)

Bad News: I have most likely killed (or seriously maimed) the "dinosaur" computer in the basement. It is 8 years old. I shut it down in the middle of an Apple iTunes update. I don't know if it can be saved. I am waiting for a call from the computer saver, I am the technology geek in our house. This is WAY beyond me. Wish us luck. There is no $$$ in the budget for a new computer, although we really need an upgrade. All of son #1's classes are using Word 7 (?) we don't have that and everything needs to be converted.

Almost done

I actually did some knitting on the sock yesterday. I had a few free hours, and whoooosh, I have 1 repeat and the toe decrease, then I'll be finished.

Can't wait to cast on Wicked.

back to the old grind

well, with all the back to school activities and back to work, not much knitting was done. I have turned the heel on the 2nd sock, so if I do get some knitting time, it should be finished in no time.
I am so looking forward to casting on the Wicked sweater. It was featured in one of the knitting catalogs that came in the mail this week.

oh, one of the new activities that we have added to our overloaded hockey schedule:
football. son #1 decided he wants to play lt weight football.
practice every day after school until 5.
this is in addition to hockey practice at night, sometimes.
