I am proof that smart people sometimes do really dumb things.

My computer’s hard drive died last week, and I had not been backing up regularly.  Despite the fact that I work with computers every day and know how awful it is to lose all your hard work…I was not backing up. So now I’m debating whether to pay hundreds of dollars to the data recovery guys for a chance at getting back all my carefully catalogued photos and files.

The IT guy's verdict

Luckily, while I debate this expensive problem, Canada Post brought me a nice little box stuffed with Rowan Big Wool. I’ve been thinking about a vest that I can’t find a pattern for, so I’m going to see what I can cook up.

Big wool big fun
