End of a decade, going out quietly

Happy New Year & decade! I'm thrilled to have gotten to this point!
Finishing the Juniper Harrisville Orchid sweater I started last April- maybe I canfinish this weekend. That would be a fitting thing to this year when I became a knitter and a spinner!

Yayyy! ITouch in Hand!

OK, now I have an Itouch. Sooo cute. It connects via WiFi at the library and I'm sure at other places as well. My quest to be more connected is becoming reality. Next I need a wireless router so I can connect anywhere in the house... and so I can move the computer from my bedroom to the fiber den. One step at a time.
Sooo, speaking of fiber... I want to put up pics but can't seem to get it to work...

ITouch lust

Ok, what I really want is an IPad... but aTouch will do, at 1/3rd of the price. I WISH the ITouch had 3G at 15 bucks a month but I'll take what I can get. Besides, the Ipad will still be around, even better, as time goes by.

I have app envy, esp the knitting podcast apps - and for a bunch of other reasons. And I want a WiFi connection. They'll give me 10% if I trade my IPod Mini, but I use that to listen to podcasts in the car and on my awesome little JBL dock in the living room.

I just bought 800 bucks worth of baseboard heating elements for the house... and have to save another 200 for the electrician installer, so I may have to wait, but every day I want to stop at the Apple store and get one.

I'm beavering away on the Guernsey Wrap (http://www.brooklyntweed.com/) - I just don't seem to have time for more than 10 or 20 rows each day. I've promised myself to finish it before starting to knit with the two awesome skeins of homespun I've made. I started another spinning fiber project, Ashland Bay Fibers Colonial Corrie in "green", which is blue, red, mustard, green, teal, turquoise and soun up it's - green, dark deep green. Trying for a light Sport Wt for boot socks. It's soft and such fun to spin.

Merry Christmas and Happy Solstice!!

Spinning fool

OK, the spinning thing has really gotten me- I just love it!
Here is some yarn I spun in the past week or so -
