Well, the Dell laptop bit the dust again yesterday. At least it was polite and profusely apologised. Seriously, it was stuck in some loop and continuously apologised till I pulled the plug and the battery and gave up. Technical assistance has changed. I was using screwdrivers yesterday. And, I do believe we stumped the Tech. He is going to "look into it" and call back in a few days. This is the second problem we have had with our Inspiron. The hard drive died in the first couple of months after we bought it.
The eMachine is having problems too. It just froze up in the middle of FastForword yesterday. Hopefully it behaves better today. Thankfully, Kevin has a little Latitude laptop. It is just strange to use–it’s 8×11.
The kids had a great time fishing with Grandpa. And my mom and I found out the yarn shop was closed on Wednesday. Luckily, my mom is fast on her feet when it comes to yarn shop localities and we hit the Knitting Corner in Huntington. It has a bit of a crowded feeling as they make use of every inch of space in the store. No photos but I didn’t buy much. I bought a skein of Fiesta Pebbles to make a shawl for an autism organizations Gala. I have to make two more somethings for a couple of other fundraisers–including Owen’s school. Not quite sure what to do yet but I am considering a Colinette afghan for Owen’s school. Knitting is even cooler this year than it was last year perhaps the Committee will be more supportive.
My mom bought yarn to make Gracie a poncho. What a good grandma. I bought Gracie a poncho. It will be knit in Sirdar Denim. Very cute. I cast on for my new poncho which my sister has asked for. I hadn’t read the pattern very well and it seems the yardage doesn’t include the fringe. ARGH! Garter in the round is annoying but on US 15’s won’t bother me for long.
