I've had a bit of an 'Oooooops!' moment this week, as in a laptop-crash 'oooooops' moment - Oh Dear! I did have it coming to me - lack of computer housework, too many photos, lots of warnings - I didn't heed any of them, so entirely my own fault :-/ I've put my 'tweedie' shop offline for this week until I decide how to rectify matters and how to em, proceed with business in general. In the meantime I have finished my first 'Egyptian' sock and I'm delighted with it . . .
Thank goodness for sock-knitting - it's keeping me calm during this time of great disaster! Never mind, I'm using one of my kiddos laptop today and I'll be able to keep in touch in any case. I will probably have to take some time out from 'tweedie' business or perhaps just cut back to the bare minimum until I figure out what to do.
Back to my sock - far more fun! I'm amazed how the colour-work came up - I have a very laborious method of doing it, as I haven't quite got the hang of holding two strands of wool simultaneously, but the result was fine so I'm happy. It fits quite well, although I really think it is meant to be quite a rustic, ethnic style of sock as shown in the book illustration.
I'll be yo-yo-ing between my kids' laptops/computers for the next little while, so if I'm not here I'll be doing all the stuff I should be doing like sorting out my cash-books, tidying my fabric cupboard, etc. Perhaps some good will come out of my predicament, who knows!
Keep calm and carry on :)
