Half an hour later:
Manage to wait an hour this time:
Really, how long does it take to put some parts together?? It's not like I ordered one with all the bells and whistles. In fact, it's pretty much the basic model shown on the website. You'd think they'd have these babies boxed up and ready to go, but noooo. I have to wait and wait some more. I mean, I ordered it Tuesday night, so where is it already?
So no exciting new photos on the blog yet. I did finish a sock (yay!) and immediately cast on the second one, so that's exciting. Ok, maybe not exciting, but at least satisfying.
Now that it's been almost two months since I started this blog, I'm revamping the Project List. A couple of things aren't priorities right now--like the baby hat. She won't need that for another four to five months, so why make it now? So it's being dropped from the list. Same with her knit skirt. She's growing so fast it's better to wait and see what size she'll be come September anyway. And the cross-stitch project is a problem. Every time I pull it out to work on it, I realize that I just do not like one of the colors, so those stitches need to be frogged and re-stitched. But I have several pieces done and waiting to be framed, so again, this is not a priority. Off the list it comes. I'm putting some spinning ON the list, just because I miss doing it. Besides, I haven't even gotten to use my new Jensen wheel, which is disturbing.
The socks are all going to have their own list, because I've decided to stick with the sock contest, even though I know that there's no way in heck I could win, unless all the other knitters were suddenly stricken with
In other happenings, I've been learning a little about computering. I've always just turned it on, checked my mail, surfed the net, and ordered yarn and such, but that's been the extent of my computer usage. Monday night, though, I spent a long time learning how to put some buttons on the blog (isn't the kitty just too adorable?) and it's awakened some dormant (and I mean REALLY dormant) desire to learn how to do all the cool stuff other people do on their blogs and websites. I was inordinately proud of myself when I learned how to do strikeouts in html, and I want to learn how to do other programming stuff. Computering, computerage--I don't know what to call it, but more than just turning it on and clicking on "Buy Now."
The right hand is much better, but the left elbow has a twinge now. I think it's this storm system or something.
Gotta go see if they've shipped the computer yet.
