I sat down at my computer to do some work yesterday, looked at the monitor and yes, talking to an inanimate object, said "you give me a pain in the neck"!
Whilst no verbal response was immediately forthcoming from the computer, I took the fact that Adobe wanted up update, Windows wanted to update and Norton was doing something atrociously labor intensive - as a sign that I was meant to go and do something else!
A short foray into the basement later I determined that given the impending winter season, at bit of knitting preparation was in order. My husband can attest to the fact that I have more than a few "shorn" sheep hidden down there so I raided the stash of roving and headed off to the Spinning Wheel for some fun of a less pixelly nature!
The Spinning Wheel was kind of cranky to start with (or that could have been me out of practice) but soon it was all fluff and go! I now have a few balls of nicely "wonky" art yarn, all properly ply-ed, that will no doubt festoon someone's neck in the coming chilly months, masquerading as a scarf!
If only I could have blogged about it from the comfort of my rocking chair and treadle foot!
