Computer Woes

In Christmas Tree Skirt on June 16, 2008 at 2:50 pm

I have been battling computer problems for two days now. I’m not certain that I will be able to post this little blurb or not. I was shocked when I could even get onto WordPress. My server freezes or shuts down altogether when visiting Ravelry, Etsy, Blogspot, Bloglines, etc. Hopefully, Dan will set everything right tonight. Though the new light fixture hasn’t been hung in over a year and I imagine another year will pass before it does get hung, computer problems never last longer than a week in our house.

Not much was accomplished this weekend. I did a minimal amount of cleaning before our friends stopped by for a visit on Saturday. On Sunday, I ripped out ever more grass in our yard and laid ever more mulch. I would have thought by now that I would have used all the mulch up. No such luck. Everytime I look out the kitchen window, I can see the remaining pile of mulch, mocking me. Perhaps out of pity or out of a desire to see the pile gone, my neighbor has offered to lay some of the mulch in his yard.

In knitting news, I might have solved the mystery of how I was going to decorate the white ties in my tree skirt. My solution involves i-cords.

Finally, pictures!

Still … there is something missing. It needs some more bling. I’ll keep playing with it.

Remember the 19 skiens of wool hanging to dry in my basement? They finally dried all the way through. I have would them into pretty yarn cakes.

Just two more white ties, 5 more i-cords and a bit of bling to make before I can start on the cabled jacket.

  1. Ugh no fun but at least you will get them fixed. Both of my browsers are behaving very badly and what I need is a total reformat but the project is so huge that I will never do it.
    BTW I am havng giveaway contest at my Gizmos blog. The chances of winning are pretty good at this point since so few people have entered! :-(

  2. Facinating. I like where I think you are going with the i-cord decorations! I still vote for some sequins. I like sequins. Just a little somewhere….. LOL

  3. You had some lovely goodies in your swap parcel. What are your plans for the yarn.

  4. OK sorry about your computer, check out my latest post, It’s officially your fault. (thanks by the way, now I seem to be spindle obsessed) and that’s a good thing, right? Well at least I got a new visa card in the mail today.

  5. heh heh. I’ve got a ceiling fan light fixture in my bed room that doesn’t light up and hasn’t since hubby “installed” it 9 years ago. The fan works and that’s all that matters to him. Never mind that you have to stumble in the dark to find the lamp when you walk in…

    Hope the computer problems clear up.

  6. Hope you get your computer fixed soon.
