I should be studying...

Last week actually managed to get worse before it got better. I couldn't even take a picture of the horror that occurred on Sunday. But the Print o' the Wave Shawl that I posted about a while ago is no longer.... Missy, the cute innocent dog in the photos managed to literally get her paws (and teeth) on it and it is now 8 smaller balls of yarn waiting to be washed and dried and re-wound and re-knit. Also, in another photo posted today, there is only one red sock shown. And in reality there were two before she ate 4" off the cuff while I was attempting to salvage the shawl. It was so sad it was funny. Basically two doors got left open that were supposed to be closed, and the rest is doggy byproduct!

On a good note, my new computer arrived yesterday. Fortunately I was here when the FedEx guy came, but immediately had to leave for 8 hours of school. So I didn't get to touch it until last night and then it took 4 hours today at the Genius Bar to migrate all of my stuff from my old computer to the new one. Some karma was on my side though, as my old computer waited until the last GB or so in the transfer before it crashed for good. So I didn't get some of the last photos off the old computer, but all the important ones have been saved on disk. Thank goodness!

To explain the photos, the first is Missy and the coveted new computer....ahhhh isn't she cute? But don't turn your back or leave yarn out. She is not detoured by pointy sticks. And the 2nd is of some recent stuff. Red sock #1 which will hopefully have a partner again if I end up having enough left over yarn to make it happen. The scarf ended up being a gift for a friend and the stethoscope represents my life right now. It has somewhat replaced knitting for now. But when I get to it I will post a pic of my newest socks. I just have to sew down a picot edge and they will be done. Something to stay tuned for.

Take care!

I'm so sorry to hear about your shawl and sock tragedy. Good thing puppy is so cute, right? Here's hoping you enjoy the process at least as much as the finished product. LOL
