Not Much Knitting--

But a little bit.

What else? Tech writing. The little bit of knitting I am doing isn't ready for public consumption—it's a sample pattern that I am knitting, photographing, and documenting. It's the first of 12 patterns I hope to write in the next 6 months.

So for now, I am doing as much writing (and re-writing) as I am knitting. Maybe even more writing than knitting if the truth be told. The pattern is being written to be needle neutral (or more accurately 3 times, once for DPN's, once for magic loop, and once for 2 at a time on 2 circ's. A good 90% of the time, it's cut and paste--but there are one or two places where there are differences. The 10% difference make up 90% of the work!

My desk top is about 98% complete--(there are still papers to be shredded, and piles of new manuals and soft ware to be filed away)—but the end is in sight. Even the keyboard got cleaned—all the dust (so much!) blown out with a can of air—and all the keys wiped clean with alcohol pads.

The new color printer is up and operational. I have already printed up some business cards. Still to come, some photo's to frame and hang. And I cleaned the wall and attached the new velcro on the wall and power strip (it needs to cure for 24 hours--half way there already)

Inch by inch things are getting done.

Last night I picked up a new sound card—today I take apart all my neatly bundled wires (well just the tail end) and take my computer apart and restore sound. All should go well. But if you don't hear from me in a while, you'll know something went wrong!
