So: the good news: we have replaced the camera cable (only took us 3 months) and now have uploading capability once more. Huzzah!
The bad news: our hard drive is AT CAPACITY. We can't foer the life of us figure out how or why. We moved all of our iTunes and our iPhoto files to a peripheral hard drive last year...but this 8-year-old purple iMac with its itsy-bitsy 10 gig hard drive is simply stuffed.
Side note: remember when 1 gig was huge? Now one gig is a key chain, and I'm complaining to the guys at the Mac store on Friday night--I was dropping off three of my school lab computers, long story--that the new iPod touch, which I covet covet COVET is "too small to be practical."
Anyway, the Grape Ape here didn't even have enough memory to make a new FOLDER for me to put in my one knitting photo so's I could link it here. That's how dire the situation is. And it leaves me yet a photo-less knitblogger. I think the issue is that we're still running both OS X and OS 9, since much, ok, most, ok, ALL of our software is pre-21st century. Might be time to let go of a) the "Classic" environment or b) the computer itself.
Here's a list of works in progress:
- Celtic Cap, in black Cascade 220 superwash, for M. I'm making it on size 7s (my last one was on 6s) with a 1.25" hem instead of the rollbrim in the hopes it will fit his huge-ish noggin (24.5"). I'm a little nervous that I may not have enough yarn because the hem, of course, ate up a lot of real estate. (Should have used a different color on the inside of the hem. D'oh.) Worst comes to worst? I'll frog back to the halfway point and finish in a different color--I don't think I can match this yarn because I lost the ballband and the store where I bought it closed in August.
I'm on row 28 of the 48-row chart; over halfway row-wise but (obviously) more like 3/4 yarn-wise since we're decreasing every 3-4 rows.
- Baby E's sweater: still on the left front.
- Panda Wool socks: riverbed architecture from New Pathways for Sock Knitters. Size 1s. For me! Moving up the leg on sock 1.
- two cabled baby hats in my school colors for colleauges with new babies. Hope they still fit by the time I finish. Another colleague just adopted a child from Ethiopia, so I need to get a child-sized one on the needles for him.
- NO LACE!
