Grace Knits a LOT!

Knitting mostly but other crafts, too (crochet, cross-stitch, scrapbooking) and life in general.

Photo Booth

I have been playing around with my new computer and found that photo booth is pretty cool. Here is my Andy Warhol attempt:

And here is the pencil drawing effect:

Pretty cool, huh?

Next post I promise some knitting content! Right now I am too busy gettting to know my new computer to do anything else!

I heart mozilla and sunsets

OK, I just downloaded firefox from Mozilla for FREE! And I am now able to blog a little easier. Safari was a little cumbersome. So here is a picture of a sunset in Jackson Hole, WY from over the 4th of July week. Enjoy!

It's HERE!!!!

My computer is finally here!!!! I LOVE it! But I am still not used to a mac. I have been using PC's now for over 13 years and old habits die hard. Like how do you copy and paste? Sorry for the bad picture. I got home after 8 pm today and did not have natural light. Also, my house is a mess!

Anyway, I also wanted to post some craft pics. Here is a little mascot that I made for my sockpal! Isn't she cute? I made her from the Cute Book. I would give you the link but I am still trying to figure out where stuff a file bar!

And here is a picture of my Q3 challenge from the Loopy Ewe! It is Cookie A's Twisted Flower and it was a joy to knit!

Once I have more knitting pics (I need light to photograph my Bee Shawl in progress) and figure out how to navigate the internet on my iMac, I will post again. Probably this weekend!

So, I have made the plunge and have purchased the new iMac (20", w/added RAM)! It is being configured right now and will ship in a week or so. I also just got a bunch of new sock yarn from the Loopy Ewe (YUM!!) that includes Duets, Wooly Boully, Misty Mountain Farm and more Tiny Toes from Interlacements (I LOVE this yarn). And, whilst I was on vacation, I received my Bee Shawl Kit from Wooly Wonka Fibers! I still have no internet connection at home (this is a stealth post from work) so, alas, no pictures. But just you wait! When I get my new computer, this blog will be LOUSY w/pics!

Anyway, even though I have a jillion ufos, I did start the Bee and was able to complete the setup chart last night. I thought I was a written out directions girl, but man, I must have morphed into a chart girl at some point. I was able to follow the chart MUCH better than trying to read the directions. BTW, the yarn is knitting up BEAUTIFULLY! I love it and knitting it, too!

Hopefully I will have a computer the next time I want to post so I can show you some eye candy!

Vacations and Sockapalooza

Hey everyone, sorry for not posting in such a long time...I was on vacation during the week of July 4th (in Jackson Hole, WY!) and then last week in Michigan (Watersmeet--in the UP). During one of those vacations, my electricity went out and fried my wireless router. The computer I use has a wireless card, but does not have an ethernet card for me to try an fix my router. I think that this has driven me over the edge and I think I will buy a new computer (hopefully a mac). But, I digress. Once I get my computer/internet situation in hand, I will post w/pictures again.

I got a couple of packages over my vacation week...I got my sockapalooza socks, plus a pair of custom sock blockers (go here to see them). I LOVE my socks, my sock blockers, and three cheers for Sockapalooza! The other package I got was my Bee shawl kit from wooly wonka fibers! I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited to start this gorgeous shawl! I just have to get some needles from knitpicks...or maybe I may try out the new addi lace needles!

Anyways, I will try to post occationally, but, without pictures, until I get my computer situation fixed.

knit on!
