Isn't this just the best looking Swiss chard? I have really been enjoying cooking with it lately. I made a great polenta vegetable primavera with half of it and the other is destined for chard, fennel and pasta dish. Yum.My newest sock is ready to be knitted. Actually it's all rolled up and I've started on the pattern. It's Hedgerow from Knitters Review and shows the hand painted yarn quite well. The yarn is Arunica and I just love the colors.

Here's another shot of the crazy stuff at Jungle Jim's. Every time I go there is something new there.There's a contest at 1870 Pearl's Go and comment and win a chance for some yarny goodness! Plus, her blog is really fun with some great pictures.
Finally broke down and bought some software to clean up my computer. It was running slow but I am not "techie" in any sense of the word so was afraid to do anything. But went to Target (where they had dvd's of Northern Exposure for $19.99 each season) and found some software by Iolo called Software Mechanic and it's FABULOUS!! Very straightforward and easy to work. And the computer runs so fast now. It's amazing. Only cost $19.95 and well worth the money.
