Free at last

My wireless stopped working about 6 months ago. I just haven't had the time to try to figure out why. Yesterday I got sick and tired of having to use the computer in our basement office. It's rather dark and there aren't any windows. I'm also kind of a computer hog and the DH gets a little frustrated that he can never get on the computer.

Finally I got out the setup CD and setup the wireless again. It only took about 20 minutes. I don't know why it took me so long to fix it. I'll blame it on Ravelry, it seems to be sucking up quite a bit of my time lately. I get sucked into reading the group posts and forums. So I actually have been knitting. I started the Ribbed Lace Bolero. Ravelry link here.

I'm actually done with all the knitting I just need to seam it up. I'm using Lion Brand Cotton Ease. Here is a close up of the stitch pattern. It's a two row repeat that is really easy to memorize.

Hopefully I will have an FO or two to post tomorrow. I will leave you with a picture of one of the trees that I have in my back yard. In early spring the tree blooms white flowers and in late spring there are red berries. For the last couple of days all I have heard in the back yard is this tree rustling. On average there are usually at least 5 to 10 birds fighting over the berries. I have had a couple birds fly right into my kitchen window. The thud noise scared the crap out of me.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!
