New MacBook and Yarn

My new MacBook Pro with Retina display arrived at my Mac store, "MacPac" on Tuesday.  I picked it up and brought it home and proceeded to try to transfer all my data over - it's called a "migration".  To my great annoyance, it stuck at 17% for an hour so I finally pulled the plug.  ::sigh::  Yesterday I took both computers back and had them do the "migration" while I went swimming.  Success!  I am coming to you now on a very nifty new machine!  It's way lighter, faster and the screen is crisp and beautiful.  Here it is right out of the box.  
The beginning of my failed attempt. 
And here it is in action.  :-)
When I arrived home yesterday hubby showed me a package that had arrived - new yarn! I fell in love with the colorful shawl that Pammy Sue crocheted so I ordered the yarn and have printed up the pattern and I'm ready to go on it.  Thanks for the inspiration, PS!
This yarn is called "microfiber" and is very soft.  It's a small skein and the yarn is fine, but I like it already!
I will be heading off to Multnomah Falls to volunteer soon - I will get some photos to share.  Thank you all for not getting tired of my waterfall photos.  :-)  And thanks for all the sweet and thoughtful comments about the "monkey boy" photos.  Hubby is almost done with the chicken "fort" and will be cutting the hole from the little coop to the new chicken yard today.  Suffice to say, this one will be extremely well secured and safe from predators!  I will show you photos of them frolicking soon!  ((hugs)), Teresa :-) 


  1. LOVE your new yarn,pattern for the shawl and most of all your MACBOOK!!!It's gorgeous! I'm totally procrastinating here because my youngest boy gets married tomorrow and I'm so nervous for him, I have to take my mind off it somehow so where better than somewhere in Oregon! Have a great weekend, Teresa.

  2. Hello Teresa your Macbook looks fab. The yarn is gorgeous!!!!! I am off to look at the pattern. Love Anne x

  3. Ohhhhhh pretty pretty, Teresa!!! [MB, yarn and pattern =)] Our guests left this morning, and now I can focus on learning how to use this MB I am typing from. [Soooooo excited!!!] We went to the Falls on Tuesday and I looked for you just in case it was your volunteer day. We had lunch in the awesome "glass room". Am looking forward to seeing the finished fort and your new feathered friends.
