our computer definitely got frozen this weekend - we think it got hit by lightening, but it may be a virus! We haven't a clue, but our graphics/colors are all messed up.
In other news, I got my scrap sock swap in the mail yesterday! Great yarn goodies.... I wish I could share but I don't dare post any pics until I figure out what's messing w/ our computer. I'm already knitting socks w/ some of the yarn - a solid blue & a solid white from the swap is getting mixed in w/ some yarn I dyed myself a while ago (pics on the blog somewhere) - self striping in blues, oranges, green, I don't know what else. I only dyed 50 grams of this.
Then I'm adding some leftover blue tweed Opal socks from the mosaic socks I just finished, and knitting these (Oh, crap, I can't think of it now! They were a six socks pattern a while ago.... when you use 3 colors at once....). I'm using the tweed, the self-patterning I dyed, and the blue on one, and then the white on the other, and then after a while, whenever I get bored or think of it, I'll switch the white & blue.... so they should be funky socks.
I thought it was ironic as one of the balls of scrap yarn I got in the swap was magic stripes in the blue/green/white/brown colorway - I just finished knitting broadripples for Jon w/ that yarn! I have a ton of leftovers, esp. since I got sick of knitting the colorway & decided that I didn't want (anytime soon, anyways) socks for myself out of the yarn. So all total I think I have around 200 grams of this yarn, though I have to weigh it, I'm just guessing. It might be more like 180.... anyways.... I want to try to swap this yarn w/ someone, is anyone interested???? Otherwise maybe a winner of my scrap sock contest will end up w/ some of it....
