One Crazy Fiber Lady

Couple of things

April 27th, 2010 · 8 Comments

Thanks for the sympathy for the frustration I felt last week having felt like I wasted a day (which I don’t have the time for). Fortunately the designers saw my point of view and modified their design to be in line with what I had already coded. Win. Downside is that they’ve added some tricksy web stuff that I’m fighting to get working. Oh well. I do like a challenge.

I’ve finally gone back to the spinning project I’d been working on when I hurt my foot. The photo is the 2 pounds of bl that I bought at Rhinebeck. It took 5 of the Van Eaton bobbins. Now I just have to get busy with the plying. Add that to the list 🙂

And finally, the new love of my life: the iPad. If it were human I would marry it. I can’t wait for the camera/card reader attachment that is due out very soon. That would make it perfect and replace the iPhone as the blogging platform. While it doesn’t have the 3g, it does have wifi and with the addition of the Verizon Wireless MiFi device, I always have Internet ready wifi. I’d thought about getting a USB based wireless connection for my laptop(s), but that wouldn’t work with the iPad as there is no USB port on it. The mifi is perfect as I can use it with any wifi device including my PSP should I choose to carry it and decide to surf. Cool huh? I also found that the apple wireless keyboard that I picked up last fall will also pair with the iPad. It has become my go to (along with the beloved iPhone) device. Anyone want to buy a lovingly used Kindle 🙂

Craft on!

    Those iPads are so tempting but I’m still solidly resisting.
    The handspun looks great. Are you going to MDS&W?

    Oh don’t tempt me on the kindle, not that I have the cash!

    Looking at all those lovely grey bobbins makes me itchy to dye them up.

    Glad you are enjoying your ipad. Still resisting here. Nope – not gonna buy it. Oh wait, is that my tax refund that just got deposited in my bank account. Uh oh……..
