Your computer contains love.

Hello! Here is the finished knitting project which I showed when it was in progress here. (What do you think, Elaine?)
It has already been sold it to the delightful and VERY talented Lambert but I thought that I might document it here anyway.

Here's the story:

Recently I realised why I am spending too much time at my computer: I'm looking for love. I'm not necessarily talking match.com, but the sort of love you get when someone answers your e-mail, comments on your facebook photos, watches your eBay listing, follows your blog, or even clicks your handmade item into their etsy favourites. I think we are all looking for love, or at least affirmation, from our computers. What do you think?
Above: the back; below, detail of hand knitting. I used lots of different sorts of beautiful yarns for this one, and now I have run out of many of my stashed favourites .... damn!

Time to turn off the computer and go outside to get some fresh -- possibly too fresh -- Melbourne air.

And Elaine -- you are SO lovely -- one day we will have a delightful and possibly rather boozy meal together and I will thank you profusely in person for all of your support!
