We have had our little iMac since early 2002. Almost 6 years is a lot to ask of any computer, and it served us very well. It’s been flaky a lot lately, but we assumed it would just keep plugging until we were ready to give it up. Not so much. Earlier this week, it died one final death, and so we made a field trip up to San Jose. Now, a very (very) new iMac graces my desk. Where the old iMac was cute and helpful and a little goofy, this iMac is sleek, graceful, and helpful. I almost feel too shabby to use it.
Our little lampy chose a poor time to die, and we weren’t really happy about plunking down the cash for the new one, but damn if I’m not going to enjoy it. The new iPhoto is fantastic, it’s faster than God, and the screen is so big I feel like I’m in a theater.
There was some knitting during the anxious “Is it going to come back up?” times with the old computer. I finished a monkey.
I finished a sweater.
(I’m seeing Neil this weekend, and his wife assures me he’ll agree to some FO shots, so look for a roundup next week on that one.)
I cast on for the Tangled Yoke cardigan, and I’ve swatched for my “quickie” project after the monkeys are done. It’s very. very. very. unlike me.
Any guesses on the yarn or the project?
