Reviewing Beyond Knit and Purl

The first things that attracted me to this book were the soothing colours and the conversational writing style. I know knitters will enjoy the projects that range from small to larger items. However, I would also recommend Beyond Knit & Purl to knitwear designers because the information Kate has included would help in the development of patterns. Thank you, Kate Atherley, for this fun and informative book.

Work in progress

My old computer is seeking early retirement and so this necessitated the acquisition of a new computer. I find change difficult. And this change has been especially taxing. First there was a problem with the email. Thankfully my computer savvy husband was well-equipped to deal with this issue. But then...then...then...(excuse me while I kick the wall) 

I've been working on revising The Sweater Curse--pressing 'save' as I go, trusting 'save' meant what I thought it meant, thinking that my relationship with this new machine was mellowing into a mutually, supportive one. 

Turns out it wasn't. Turns out the new computer was only toying with me. Turns out each time I pressed send it was laughing in my ear. 

"Save this? Why should I save this," my new friend said. "I don't need to save this." And so it didn't. 

I've resisted the impulse to toss it out the window. And, for this, I think I deserve a medal.

Hmm, unless I saved it in this document. Yes! Here it is. Well, my week just improved immensely. : )

Human error--it does happen.
