Best Husband Ever (now with knitting content!)

I don't think I mentioned this, but I decided to start saving my designing income to buy a new laptop (we have a reasonably new desktop that I normally use at home, but my late-90's laptop has not been up to the task at work for some time- some of the keys no longer work, it freezes up all the time, etc.) As a result, I've been bringing home a lot more work than I could have if I had a decent computer to use during the day (the only computer in my classroom is for the kids, and doesn't have the stuff I need on it anyway. Going down to the prep room in the office to use the computer is a pain, and it's old and slow anyway.) Bringing home lots of work cuts in to my knitting time, okay? Anyway, I had enough jobs lined up to pay for it, and expected to buy as soon as I got paid for them all (by the end of April or so.) However, yesterday Hubbo surprised me with the exact model I'd been eyeing (something "medium", you know) PLUS a new printer for me to use at school (the printer in my classroom is not so great) and a cool docking thing with a full size wireless keyboard and mouse!!!!! He totally rules.
P.S. Knitting pictures soon. I promise.

P.P.S. Here they are! Progress on Sockapaloooza Socks 2nd Try and the start of another Koigu Jaywalker for me. Also the cool Project Spectrum CD that Anjo sent me from her blog contest!

Wow! Your husband rocks! He does know that this means you'll be knitting even more? (wink, wink)
