Broken....

...in more ways than one....

Dave finally got all the little things we needed to make the Mac work... and then my monitor died. It's been acting up on and off for about a year, so I'm not surprised, but the timing really is ironic. Dave has another monitor at work, but he won't be back for a couple of days.

In addition... I am broken too. At about 10 p.m. last night, after a day of fruitful knitting, my back decided it didn't want to work any more. It was too late to take any painkillers (they are chock full of caffeine and keep me up all night) and when I woke up this morning I could barely move.

So, Dave kindly brought my tv and dvd player upstairs, and left me his lap top (it's faster than mine). I had my knitting, a good book, and three very lazy cats - if I wasn't in intense pain it would have been an ideal day.

I have no pictures (of weekend or today's knitting) because this computer has no photo editing software.

Instead, I'll leave you with the fruits of last Friday's labour:
It should be in the shop by mid week.

Sorry to hear about your back. When mine goes it's drugs for me without hesitation (Diclofenac Sodium).

And that is one delicious yarn pile.!
