Lovely, both the shawl and the snow scene. I know what you mean about hap, or everyday, shawls. I wear the plainest ones around the house - only my plain ones are *way* plainer than yours :-) PS: One person on ravelry left out the partial diamonds at center and ends. The partial diamonds don't bother me so much, but I do see what you mean.
Good luck! My experience with my Dell PC, and J with her HP Notepad, leads to some recommendations: 1) Avoid 64 bit Windows Operating System for now because you might run into limitations (I have run into some); 32 bit Windows is good enough. If you don't know what this means, ask. 2) J got an inexpensive HP laptop/notepad that has a light brown keyboard. It is impossible to see at home. She can't read the keys, so she had to get an auxiliary keyboard (back w/white letters). Otherwise, she likes the HP well enough. This is her second one in 10 years. 3) Lori's suggestion to get a free upgrade to Windows 7 is a very good idea. Whether or not you get a free upgrade, it would be good to think about upgrading to Windows 7 soon after it is available. 4) Mel's route: installing linux is good, but it does take a little bit of fearlessness. I installed Ubuntu on an old, underpowered Thinkpad. It was easy. It works. You will probably want to run some Windows apps, so would have to find a way to do that. Have fun! Hope you aren't using your new computer for job hunting :-/
