The Old Girl is Finally Back

Yes --- my laptop is finally back from the repair shop. It's been too long! There were quite a few internal pieces that were replaced. Don't ask me what they were...I might say a carburetor, because I know nothing about the internal working of a computer, or car for that matter.

Besides my lastest obsession with spinning --- I'm whipping up some dreamy, sparkley purple alpaca --- I'm working to reduce my sock yarn stash. Wouldn't it be nice to have a drawer filled with mostly hand-knit socks? Here's a picture of some crazy soft yarn I'm building a sock with

PS
Can anyone explain why, when I upload photos into my post, Blogger adds extra returns --- or spaces between paragraphs? (not sure exactly what they're called) It's totally frustrating.

ooooooo, socks are good!
I hate that blogger does that thing with the photos too, I always have to edit!
Can't wait to see that spinning made into something lovely.

It would be nice to have a drawer full of hand-knit socks. I'm itching to make a pair of socks. I may have to start a pair today. You've inspired me!b

I love those stripes! Can you tell me what kind of yarn that is? It would go great with the green sweater I'm knitting. And I just told Chrissy I wouldn't buy any yarn.........

I love those socks!!

I just started with a spinning class, but it was with the drop spindel, which was fun, but I'm thinking it's just not my thing. That purple yarn looks yummy!

Love those stripy socks - I too aspire to a drawer (almost) full of hand-knitted socks. I have the same problem with blogger and photos. No idea why.

Welcome back laptop! Your sock's looking great! Remember if it doesn't fit right, my feet are bigger, and I won't mind taking them off your hands! :)

Blogger must be giving you my spaces. When I publish, mine disappear, and there are no spaces between my paragraphs. Weird.

Love these stripes! Is that Austermann Step? I want a drawer full of handknit socks too; I tend to give away quite a few pairs, need to knit more for myself. :)
