My point?

What good would a busy weekend be without a computer virus? Not only did Captain end up with a 'bug', so did my computer! So, I'm on the dinosaur right now, which means I can't access any of my photos that are on the 'good' computer. We'll have to make do until I figure out what to do for the 'good' computer to make it feel better.

This seems like as good a time as any to emphasize the role of computers in my design life. Basically if you want to be a crochet designer you must have a computer with internet access. Since you read my blog, you probably already know this. Occasionally though, someone will ask me if it is possible to be a crochet designer without a computer, and I just can't see success with that scenario. 99% of my communication with buyers, yarn companies, colleagues, is all through e-mail. It is RARE that I get a telephone call. Contracts come through email about half the time and half the time they come through postal mail.

Hang in there friends, we'll ride out this virus together. Big Sigh.
