On the new Laptop

we have a blog post!


Thanks to Karen, I was able to download my pictures without installing a program --- she indicated to me on Ravelry that Vista has a digital picture program installed. Sure enough, the laptop immediately recognized the driver and then the camera. Downloading pics was more complicated. But only because I had to do it in an alternative method. Thank you Karen!

This first picture is the goodies spread out for BBB Lesson #2. I just have to write up the answers for the questions. I have all my notes ready for transcription.



And just what is on the keyboard? It is an Aran Laptop Cover, pattern by Michael del Vecchio. I copied from the link on Ravelry for the reprint in Canadian Living magazine.

The stats: 24" Boye circular size 9, but really the equivalent of an 8.5 if there were such a thing. Yarn is some of my single ply handspun Romney. Originally I spun a lot of single ply to weave into a blanket. Never was able to get that set up in Cochise, so I have a lot of thickly spun single ply. Such pretty shiny Romney.

So far, this is really fun to knit.

Thanks for the reminder about the laptop cover...it's an oldie but a goodie that I didn't have in my Ravelry queue.

Another project. It is amazing what can be made. A lucky computer to get a covering of your nice hand spun yarn.

I seeyou are sailing along on homework also.
