I haven't posted in a while....

because my Mac(k) makes three beeping noises and then does nothing else every time I turn it on. This is my work computer and I can't figure out how to get my pictures on here. I think I shall be stopping at the Mac store with the Mack to hopefully get the problem sorted out (it's a RAM thing-which is not the harddrive apparently, which is good.

I shall post pictures of all my knitting progress when I can use the comptuer again or when I have a new one, which is looking likely.

I did get the yarn in from Sarah's Yarns for my chuppah. I went with the Jaggerspun DK weight in white, two cones. I already started swatching and have some of the stitch pattern picked out.

I went to an SnB last night in Reading, MA and I might have finally found one that I like. It's a nice mix of people, on a Wednesday night, and only is two hours long, so I still have time to take care of other business that night, like spending time with M.

I think I shall order a couple more stitch books today so I have a little more variety for the chuppah. So far I am using a leaf stitch, a candle flame/torch one, a flower stitch-Larkspurs, and possibly something called rising pathways. They are from this book:

I am thinking about getting these books:

I am just not sure.

I don't plan on doing a lot of designing so I might just go see if I can get it through the library or something.

I literally just want a few more stitch patterns but the ones I want to use are sprinkled throughout these books.

There needs to be one giant collection of say, just lace stitches, for people like me! Every single lace stitch you can imagine.
