Problems!!!

My computer has given me a difficult weekend! It will not switch on for more than a few minutes at a time! So it has to go back for repairs, and I may lose everything on it, nothing life saving is kept on it but the patterns, pictures and bookmarks for Firefox will be a pain to sort out. I will just have to see it as a real spring clean! So I spent the weekend rebuilding my old PC so that I had internet access. You never realise how much you miss something until you have to do without!! I can go up to 3 weeks on holiday without pc access but not a day at home without shaking! That is bad........

Now onto knitting. :)

Some WiP pictures, bearing in mind I have not got my usual software etc!

First up: I am almost finished the Paul Monkeys. Doesn't this picture look apt for this week, Valentines Day? Consider this a little heart I send out to you during this week of 'love' :)

Then I am on the toes of my Evolution Ribbed socks in Flamingo Sunrise. I'm posting 2 pictures to show the fabulous pooling at each side. I love it anyway :)


See the little ball of yarn leftover, I could have easily knit longer cuffs, and these were an inch longer than the first pair I knit! So still a reasonable yardage with this pattern, thankfully. :)

I'm off to Dublin on Thursday so there may be no more new posts until next week, Half-term is a wonderful invention!! I really need a break. And a trip to This is Knit I think, since I have been relatively good, for me ;) :)

My computer is soon to brake too :( The patterns I´ve saved on a cd but all the bookmarks!! My list filed under yarn is looooong and I don´t think I have the time to sit down and write every single link down....
Hope you get yours fixes.
Love the socks by the way!! ;)

Gorgeous socks as always ;) I love the pooling too. I hope you manage to get your pc sorted without too much hassle.

The stripey ones are very Valentiney!
I feel for you without a computer. Fingers crossed that you can save what's on it, it would be so sad to lose what's on it, and a real pain, I bet.

Have a good time in Dublin! Any good yarn shops there??????...!
