I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's celebrating. As for me, well the swift and ball winder were sadly amiss this holiday but I was oh so wonderfully gifted with so many other things, I didn't even notice. (And besides, I have a birthday coming up February 1 so maybe I can manage to beg for those before then!) Among the treasures that came my way and at the top of the Yippee list: my handsome prince got me my very own super-duper A #1 digital camera.
This, of course, is not a picture of MY camera, but the picture they have on the Canon website. It is a Canon Powershot A620, with 7.1 megapixels for "stunning clarity" and 4 times optical zoom. As fancy as this baby is, I haven't figured out how to get it to take a picture of itself. I have had such fun playing with it, though, honestly, I haven't really figured out much about its fanciest of features yet. That will come. There will be much knitting to photograph in the days ahead. (There was much yarn and other knitterly goodness bestowed upon me this year and I have been enjoying it quite thoroughly this past week.)
And on the knitting front, I am looking for a volunteer or two. I am working on a pattern and I'd like another knitter's input. As previously discussed here at Ok? What Next?? my local circle of friends does not include any knitters.
This project calls for the following skills:
- Provisional cast-on
- Knitting in the round
- Picking up stitches
Simple, simple, simple but still, I think, a nifty pattern. If you would be interested, please send me an email at crickitleigh (at) hotmail (dot) com or leave a comment in the comments with your email.
Hopefully this week will allow for at least some posting time. I am going to being working a lot: All day Monday at the old job and then 5 hours a day at each job Tuesday through Friday. It makes me weary just thinking about it. I think I am going to go have some wine and knit.
