Those socks look as great as the original Key West pair! Plus, congrats on the wheel!


Those socks are just very cheerful! I have a couple of the Nations colors in the stash somewhere.
Oh, and Mac users CAN open doc files. It's one of the glorious things about the Mac!


You know I forget about sales tax. Oregon has luckily never gone that route. I don't trust our government to give back in another area if they decided to go there.
Anyway, you have re-energized me to love my Joy again. I was just thinking yesterday that I should find a good home for it. Now that I have a Schacht double treadle I never use the little Joy. But there are travel times and plying times that I could want two wheels.


Jane has got a new toy! Awesome!!! We have to have a spin-in when I get back to Hotlanta in July to show off your new gadget and all the plying you will have done by then! Very smart planning on when and how buying the Mac! Let me know if you want me to look for some Regia Nation (and which one) while I am here! Miss you!


Congrats on the new wheel and congrats to the winners! Nice socks. I'm trying not to upgrade to Vista until I absolutely have to.


Congratulations on your new Mac! We took the plunge last year. I have a lot to learn and look forward to your document of tips! I think you'll be a lot happier with the Mac's capabilities.


I just read about your mom, I am so sorry!


Good for you for waiting for the discounts! I got about $300 off with my educational discount. I must admit that I waited a few months to officially quit my teaching job so that I could take advantage of the discount.

Oh, and I can open your Word doc just fine with my Mac. I've always had Word on my Mac, although it didn't cross over in the past, it does now. ;)

The stripey socks are very pretty, and so is your new wheel. Have fun waiting!


There will be Mac in our house soon. My son will need one for the film production program he was accepted to. Pretty pricey compared to my $899 hp specials.


I waited to get Apple Care until close to the end of the first year that I owned the laptop...I figured there was no need to pay for it until then because their warranty is quite good. I'm so glad that I got it as soon after, the mouse pad wore out (I blame the hubby...just because) and it was completely covered.

As far as software, wait until after you get your Mac to decide on what to get. Most (and maybe even all) your files are likely to just open up when asked for on the Mac.

Your Joy is very nice; enjoy spinning on it. I've sure been enjoying spinning this spring...most just for fun and no particular project in mind!


I have that wheel as well, congrats I think you will love it!


Woo hoo! Congratulations on the new wheel!


Ooooh! Congratulations on your new wheel! I haven't spun much these days but I think I just need to get back into the habit. Let me know if you run into problems with your Woolee Winder on the Joy. I didn't spend a whole lot of time playing with it, but it certainly was giving me a run for my money, tension-wise. Hopefully you'll have an easier time of it. If you figure out any tricks,please pass them along!

I think I am going to the Apple store next week. I want to find out as much as I can before I take the plunge, but I am definitely ready. (and excited!) I have heard horror stories about Vista and I'm just not interested in having that shoved down my throat, KWIM?

Take care and happy spinning!


Congrats to the winners! Heh, I'm clinging to my copy of XP Pro, darn it... Isn't that the most fun colorway?! The Jaywalkers I knit from it don't fit right, so I've been contemplating ripping and reknitting them as plain socks.


I am so excited I won!! I actually do own a Mac laptop. I even bought my hubby a Mac desk top as he is not a laptop type of guy. Both my son and daughter own a Mac as well. I guess you could say we are as much a Mac family as we are a Honda family. I just leave the expertise up to everyone else. I love my Mac because it never seems to give me any problems!
