We’ve been a laptop household for a long time. In fact the last time I had a desktop computer in my home was probably 2001 when I was a single girl. So we’re going back a bit there. But recently I knew that it was time for something bigger for me to be blogging on AND there was that little issue of needing a computer for the family, especially with Keira doing her maths online and assignments. Mind you I think she might be using the laptop as I am loving my new ‘puter.
I did some research and ended up with an asus all in one and am loving it. Touch screen, wireless mouse and keyboard and a few bells and whistles. I searched for the best price and then they knocked off another a little bit more so I’ m happy. My end of financial year present to myself. Woo hoo.
So I’ve got my computer in my craft room. To the right is my sewing machine and overlocker and I’ve got knitting needles and supplies around me. All in a nice sunny part of my house. What more could I ask for. This afternoon, I just had some weaving in and the underarms on emerson’s little winter jumper so I youtube’d Kitchener stitch for a refresher, watched a few youtube videos and sat finishing in the ends. It was all very civilised. This sitting at a desk instead of on the couch with laptop perched on my lap. Which is how I’ve blogged and done everything……forever!
And so emerson’s jumper got a little blocking for that pesky bottom edge to stay down. I’m not doing buttons and I did discover that the pattern is free here on purl soho. This is a great unisex jumper and a real winner if you’re into seamless knitting. It starts from the bottom up and I might just do another one for emerson before winter is out. It’s not too difficult either!
Expect some photos this week with my littlest model
