A chick who goes on and on about knitting, designing knitting, crazy musings, shoes, family, and other stuff that pops into my too full head.

Computers...thou art evil!

Computers are annoying. Computers are frustrating. Computers cost you lots of money, and make you throw more of it away! Computers make you feel stupid...stupid for not knowing how to do something, and stupid for making you have to ask someone to help you.

What could possibly send me into this fit?!?!?

I purchased Adobe Acrobat 8 (not cheap) to turn all of my knitting patterns into PDF files, to make it easier to get them "out there" as well as to make the format that my loving husband put them in readable to everyone. Three Kittend Needle Arts needs my patterns in a PDF file to get them printed. Sounds easy doesn't it? NOT!

My computer has decided to DENY ACESS to installing Acrobat, as well as trying to install Windows Service Pack 2...which we sent away for even though you supposedly can download that. AARRRGGGHHH! I personally do not know how to do any of this, so right away I am handicapped in that way. My dear husband has tried many times, all ending with an episode of throwing something across the room. My computer savy friend has tried, but no luck again...and he was at it for several hours!!

Aside from purchasing a new computer, I am at a loss of what to do! I'm still knitting, though...and still designing and writing patterns. *sigh*

A Sock Monkey Hat class!

Get this!!

They are teaching a class on my hat! I think that is cool! I did email them and let them know I'd love photos of the finished hats...but I didn't get a response. Perhaps they will pass that info on to their students.
