What happened to all our messages? There is nothing in my Inbox, nothing in my Sent folder.... What is going on? Why were they all deleted? I didn't even read some of them. Who did this??!?!?

Knitting Nirvana!

I don't know if it's just me or if this is more common. this is what I call it when I'm knitting, and I'm completely cognizant of my surroundings, but my mind is at multiple places. I'm knitting, however it's more reflex action and visual acuity, I'm not counting although it's a complex pattern, I'm using visual references only.

MMario's wedding peacock

I finished this yesterday... seems to be the "summer of lace..."
What a great pattern!
I altered it from the original full circle, adding a garter stitch border, and given my crappy eyes did it with sock weight yarn on 10s.

My new dish towel

I just thought I would send a picture of the new dishcloth that you all helped me with a few days ago. It really turned out well and I thank you all.

Windows 7 is whuppin' my *ss

I've spent the last two weeks trying to get windows 7 to work on my new computer. Finally gave up today and handed it over to a co-worker to sort out. How to feel totally incompetent - as this is *my job* .....

I want to hide under a rock.
