I took an unusually long pause in posting here because my computer stopped working. It was a simple PC laptop that just couldn’t handle the constant Microsoft updates. If a computer can get dementia, mine certainly had one. It became extremely slow, would stop and think about I don’t know what forever and then would tell me: “ There is no Internet connection”. And our connection was right there, it just couldn’t recognize it, poor thing.

Now I am using an Android laptop (I know, a rarity), but it took some time to move all my files on it, and get used to the new device.

Speaking of updates… I don’t like “new and improved” Ravelry at all. The pictures clash with all the bright and childish colors, too many headers, too many little things that distract from the actual projects. A little bit like bumping into someone who had a bad facelift: you know and like the person, but it is painful to look them in the face. Which is why I don’t go there as often as I used to. So, if you are my friend, and I haven’t reacted to your last project, it is not because I didn’t like it, it’s because I didn’t see it.
And honestly, most of the newly published designs don’t look like new: top-down, seamless, round-yoke, handpainted yarn. Not my cup of tea.
I’ll keep posting my finished projects there as I used to do, at least for now.

Actually, I stopped frequently checking my Instagram feed as well. I get lost among those who sell or buy things. I used to think it was created to meet new people and communicate with them. Perpetual monetisation of everything makes me feel depressed. So again, I am sorry if I didn’t see your last picture or didn’t comment on your last project. I try my best to catch up but social media have this uncanny ability to suck you up inside for hours and there are only so many hours in a day and I have other plans on how to spend them.

Please, accept my sincere apologies,
