I haven't posted much lately because of trouble with the computer. I had to reformat the hard drive last weekend. After dowloading and using Microsoft's Service Pack 2 for a few days, I suddenly lost all online access. Turns out this is not unusual--I have learned my lesson and disabled all automatic updates from MS. Trying a system restore to an older date was the final blow--computer locked up and wouldn't budge. I just gave up and reformatted.
On the knitting front, I finished the baby blanket. Pictures will follow shortly. I'm not crazy about this one, totally my knitting fault, though. The squares are not exactly the same size and that made it tough to get a flat seam. By that point, I had enough and just did the best I could so I could called it done.
