Bad news: The data recovery was not as complete as I hoped and I lost about 50% of my files, 30% of which I DO NOT have back-ups. BOO HOO!
Good news: I got a new PINK laptop and it arrived!! WOOHOO!
So, kneurotic is back!
I still need to update my yarn database and details, but here's a few pics of my recent projects:
1) Monkey from Cookie A via Knitty:
This was started on my HK trip in July. I had no yarn so I bought one skein Steinbach Wolle Aktiv Color 100 from Cheerwool. It's not luxurious sock yarn but I liked the colorway and the yarn does soften up after a good wash. 2) Dude Tiger Socks (that match my first socks)
The Opal yarn was on sale for $3 so I got 2 skeins... perfect for the dude! The color resembles a tiger and the dude happens to be born in the year of the tiger. Don't they match with the blue pair in the back? Those were my very first socks.
I used 4 skeins of Jaeger Trinity. I made a few adjustments to the pattern. The main difference is replacing the knitted string with ribbon. It's not expensive ribbon but it makes the whole project so much more feminine.
