We now return you to our regularly scheduled programming

Okay, the computer problems I was having seem to have been resolved and hopefully that’s the end of it for a bit. (fingers crossed)

I have to say that ever since the sudden, unexpected death of the motherboard back in May, my new computer hasn’t quite been the same and is overly prone to fits of naughty behavior.

I suspect I should just wipe it and reload everything from scratch, but that prospect is somewhat less than appealing with everything else that needs doing around here so I’ll just muddle along 'as-is' for now.

Lopi Sweater Update

Only the neck ribbing to go...

Not too much progress since the last update. However, in a dramatic departure from the usual scheme of things here at Yin and Yarn, this lack of progress is deliberate.

As I was completing the last of the neck decreases and starting the ribbing, it occurred to me that I was going to need some 'stunt knitting'* for some upcoming photoshoots so this is as far as the sweater will get for now.

PS: Please forgive me if I haven't responded to a comment or email. I'm a bit behind due to the computer issues and being out of town last week.

*Stunt Knitting : 'in progress' knitting held by non-knitters in order to look like a real knitter in photographs.

Stunt knitting: knitting you do while jumping out of airplanes, burning cars, and off bridges? :)

Sorry about the 'puter problems. The sweater is gorgeous and will look super on you!! I hope the photoshoot goes well.

I'm glad you clairfied "stunt knitting." I was a little scared for you. I can now relax.

Glad that the computer issues are a bit more under control at this point. I'd be lost without my internet!!!

The sweater looks fabulous. You are showing such restraint in not finishing and wearing it right away.

Your back!! And your sweater is beautiful. I would like my living room to be that color.

Glad to hear the computer problems have been resolved, nothing more frustrating then a computer that will not cooperate, imo.

Wow, you are so close to finishing your lopi sweater and it is looking awesome.
