Sick Computer Now Fixed

Yes you may have been wondering where I have been all this time and I can now say that I am back. The computer just siezed up one morning and had to go and be fixed and would you believe it that when I got it back home it lasted a few hours before it died again! So off it went again and now fingers crossed and a few parts later it is okay now, thankfully it was still under warranty. Meanwhile we were using the old bomby computer which was way too slow to do anything but check emails as for browsing any sites with pictures, forget it.

I have been having trouble with carpal tunnel which has prevented a lot of knitting being and done, ironic isn't it that it flares up when I didn't have my computer and the kids returned to school which normally would have meant a lot of knitting time. As for the sewing up of Lizard Ridge that is coming along slowly, I think if it was winter I would be more motivated to finish it. I have finished a couple of hats for my etsy shop another flapper hat and a brimmed beanie. There is a beret too but I haven't got around to taking any pics yet so stay tuned for that and the progress of my first item for Project Spectrum.



So there you have it and now I must go and get ready as I am going out to lunch with a friend and then over the next few days I will be catching up with everyones blogs. Till then, happy knitting.

Welcome back! Carpal tunnel has a habit of popping up at the most inappropriate times! Get some good wrist supports and wear them to bed. A lot of times our wrists end up in crazy positions when we are sleeping and it crimps that median nerve without us even realizing it. Hats are super cute!

I'm glad your computer is better and I hope your carpal tunnel gets better, too. That must be no fun to deal with.

Love your hats! They are so cute.
