A disturbing habit was brought to my attention this weekend. It appears that I love to try out patterns. It was brought to my attention by my husband who asked about the stacks of books and magazines on my desk with sticky notes all over them.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
The problem is, as I see it, books and magazines are fragile things and can easily be lost, spilled upon, torn, closed and hidden away when someone's daughter is wanting to tidy up the family room before friends come over for a Just Dance/Karaoke marathon. In the past, I would scan images into the drive on our server reserved just for my patterns. Then I would put the magazine or book up. It was easy, the scanned was right by me on my desk. Plus, I could easily transfer the image to my Kindle when going out and taking knitting with me.
A few months ago my old computer finally gave up the ghost and I built a new one. Someone put the scanner/printer/fax machine on my husband's desk and he just USURPED it! Since it's our network printer/scanner/fax, he just remapped everyone's printer selection. So now, if I wish to scan anything in, I have to use his machine, since it's physically connected.
Right, he's going to get off of his games long enough for me to sit and scan and properly catagorize all these magazines and books.
So tonight, I'm coming home from work and I'm going to start scanning, and keep scanning until I'm done.
I bet the scanner is back on my desk in the morning.
