New toy

We finally broke down and bought a nice new set of phones. Our old ones tended to have a clicking sound as soon as we came close to the computers. Not good… it drove me crazy and in the end one of the handsets did not work any longer with the headset. Off we went to Future Shop and bought a Panasonic 3-set cordless phone.

Now I am a happy camper.

A few days ago I finished knitting my first pair of toe-up socks. I think this is the way I shall knit socks from now on. I have a lot more to learn about that but this is a start.


I used some cheap yarn that I had hanging around for about 25 years because I only wanted to learn how to knit the toe but I was on a roll and decided to finish them off. I can see some of design mistakes but I shall work on that.
With this toe-up method I can make a sock just long enough in the leg to use half the ball of yarn and be sure there is enough yarn for the second sock.

I finally have my computer back to normal. It took awhile to arrange things the way I like them. I would really like to learn how to reformat it myself. If I have trouble again I shall try that and hope that I don’t turn it into an “anchor”. I was also able to download Live Writer again although I thought Blogger is OK too.

Today I was very busy. I helped a friend bottle wine this morning and when I came home I had to make lunch, which is our main meal of the day. At the same time I fixed up a pizza for tonight. I had the dough frozen and it was time to get it out of the freezer. It looks good and I hope it will taste good. Now while I am writing this I am also baking chocolate chip cookies. They are very very good. It’s a new recipe Cliff’s niece gave me. The cookies are almost like Sandies. Now I have to have enough willpower to stay away from them. Maybe…maybe not ☺

That’s all for now.
Good bye everybody ☺

Leave your willpower somewhere else when you have homemade cookies coming out of the oven.

So neat to see those socks. I've been wanting to do that myself but I'm not a very accomplished knitter. Looks like u did a good job tho. Thanks for sharing with us.

Great socks. The cookies sound so good. If I make them, I eat them, so don't make them.. :)
