As of this moment, no one has guessed the computer’s name. But I want to thank you for all the guesses and nice comments! You guys have some great ideas for names. But none of them happen to be the right name.
However, Della would have been a cool name for her.
But . . . I think you need another hint or two.
It’s not the name of a flower, nor does it have the syllable “Del” in it.
It is not a common American name, rather, it is a Northern European one.
I was actually going to give that hint yesterday but was convinced by someone ::cough::Ian::cough:: not to, as said someone ::cough::Ian::cough:: thought it would make it too easy.
If you would like to guess again (or for the first time, if you haven’t yet), send your guess to my blog contest email address. Please don’t leave it in the comments.

Still happily knitting along on the second sleeve. I do believe I’m going to end up with a fair amount of the main color left over — two full skeins, it looks like, so if you are someone knitting this sweater who had slightly less yarn than the pattern called for, you should be okay. I made the body an inch longer, and am still coming in under the recommended amount. Neato, huh?
It’s Q&A Day!
I am doing a baby outfit with a bit of fair isle. Here is my question: how “twisted” is the new color supposed to be? I have a feeling I am twisting the new with the old too much.
Ah, the age-old question. To twist (or weave) or to float. Long-time Wendyknits reader will know that I prefer floats to weaves in my fair isles. However, Leigh mentions in her question that she’s making a baby outift. When I am knitting for a baby or a child, I will weave my yarns, because there’s less chance of little fingers getting caught in the floats on the wrong side.
How much weaving is too much? Isn’t there a method (Philosopher’s Wool, perhaps) that advocates twisting the yarns on every stitch or two? Anyone with experience in this want to weigh in with a comment?
Just So You Know What I Put Up With at Work
This is the remains of one of my coworkers’ afternoon snack.
His comment as I was taking the photo: “Well you could at least tell them it was from several people.”
Not on your life! Full disclosure!
Why, yes, I am cross-eyed!
