Redecorating, Renovating, and Learning Something New - Pardon Our Mess

Most things in life need to be updated periodically and Pink Lemon Twist is no different.  We* have made some big changes this week.  HUGE!  Does it look any different to you?  It looks different to me:

Maybe this will help:

Yes, I got a new MacBook on Monday.  The last time I had an Apple was when I was in 5th and 6th grade (and it was still called an Apple).  It was an Apple II+.  I've been on PC's ever since.  Fortunately for me, I've never been particularly literate on a PC so while there is a learning curve with the Mac, it's not as steep as it would be if I knew everything there is to know about a PC and had to relearn it.  I'm getting things figured out, sometimes more through luck than anything else, but I'm getting there.

I have also made an Executive Knitting Decision.  I am about as stalled out on Juno as a knitter can get right now.  I still like the sweater, but I have no urge to work on anything that heavy when things are starting to warm up (OK, yesterday was crazy cold for April, but still, it's April).  I've decided to put the whole thing away until late summer when I'll be jonesing for something Autumnal instead of forcing myself to plow through it now.  I've kept obsessive notes and I'll double check them before I put it all away, but I'm ready to move on to something more Seasonally Appropriate.  

I won't be blogging tomorrow because I'm going on a field trip.  Actually Caleb is going on a field trip, I'm going as a chaperon to run herd on the class to help make sure we don't lose any of them.  Pink Lemon in charge (sort of) - if only they knew me!  Be back Friday unless I get lost on the field trip.

*We refers to everyone here on the Pink Lemon Twist team - primarily me, Finn (in charge of quality control of animal based fiber products) and Ramius (in charge of relaxation techniques and body heat acquisition).  Mickael and Caleb are primarily my Trophy Men and serve the function of arm candy when needed.

Good for you! I love my Macbook and can never go back to a PC. Have fun playing with it.

Oh, I love my Mac. There's a Mac Ravelry forum that's pretty active, if you're interested. I'll send you a link.

I'm like you in that I last used a mac in the early 80s and it was an apple IIe. I was into CAD then and the PC was far superior and we had PCs at home so that's the way I went. I can do basic tech support on Macs and have thought about switching but I just don't think it's going happen. Have fun with your new macbook!

Late summer in DFW is probably not a time that you'll actually want to work on anything heavy either, to be honest! That's the problem I've found with anything wool here. There are only one or two months that actually feel cool/cold enough to want to have wool sitting in your lap.

I have never used a Mac, but have been thinking about switching from the PC. Getting fed up with Microsoft and viruses :)
In Scotland, it never gets too warm to knit heavy stuff. I spend most of my time knitting Aran Jumpers :)
