A few things from the New Laptop

Happy Friday :)

I'm posting from the comfort of my new (refurbished) 2013 11" MacBook Air. It's taking some getting used to. I mean, the keyboard is the same size but the spot where I rest my lazy hands is slightly smaller so it's hitting me in a different spot....and as the screen in smaller, I've had to make some adjustments to how I view things...and Husband did some jiggerypokery and now I'm no longer using Open Office but am, instead, back to Microsoft Word....I haven't used MSWord since probably 2006. I'm working through getting used to it.

With all that said, I didn't lose anything. We have a full backup of all my files, photos, music, etc. on our....well, let's not get into the insanity that is our redundancy.

So, that means a few things are happening now that I have my own laptop :)

First and foremost, testing for Stitch's Rock Collection (of Hats) is going on in the Free Pattern Testers group on Ravelry. If you're interested in testing, here is the link to the thread.

Secondly, but still associated with firstly, the pattern is now listed in the database on Ravelry (here). It's not "live" yet as it's still in the testing phase but it's there. I hope to have it go live by the end of the month.

Thirdly, other things are in the works and I can't talk about it. You'll just have to wait. Let's just say that some pattern writing has been happening and leave it at that :) are some photos of the happenings around here :)

Sooooooo, that means I should have a post on Sunday and it may or may not include photos. We'll see what happens.

I hope you're all having a lovely Friday!


  1. Made me smile. You're always making time for fun. You know, I may have seen you at the STITCHES marketplace. Not sure though...

    1. I would go batcrap crazy if I didn't have any fun!

  2. The pattern, or rather pictures of the pattern, on Ravelry looks awesome. Nice work. And nice photos here, too.

    1. Now if I could only find testers......
