Ahh, Technology

My computer and I have been at odds lately.  Last week it contracted a virus and although it's healthy again it has had some aftereffects.  Namely I lost some of my software programs.  One of those was the one that interfaces with the camera and basically lets me upload pictures.  After several futile attempts to reload the program, I contacted the company for help, but haven’t gotten a fix yet.  Now ordinarily I would just pop the memory card out of the camera and upload the pictures from there.  That didn’t seem to work either.  It took me until today to figure out that somewhere along the way a setting got changed on the camera and the pictures were being stored in the internal memory and not on the card.  So, human error this time, not computer error; and easy enough to fix; I copied the pictures to the card and popped it into the drive and hurray – Pictures!

So now I can bring you up to date on my knitting projects.  

I mentioned in my last post that I finished the Blue Pukas sweater: 

Pattern: Pukas from Knitters Magazine K98, Spring 2010 Yarn: Dream in Color, Some Summer Sky 

I also finished my Rivendel socks:

Pattern: Rivendel from the Eclectic Sole by Janel Laidman Yarn: Noro Kuryeon Sock, color S149 Modifications:  worked chart B rows 60-44 in place of chart A rows 1-16 

And this morning I closed the toes on these:

Pattern: Knotty or Knice Socks by Chrissy Gardiner, Interweave Knits, Fall 2008 Yarn: Koigu Premium Painters Pallet Merino; color Lilac (P703117)  

And, I’m still working on the Vines and Lace sweater and it is still happier.  

So there you have it, I’ve been busy working away, it’s my computer that’s the slacker.  

Happy Knitting!
