Well, I was going to start a new series of blog posts yesterday that were going to highlight all the things I had worked on during the week, starting with the finished items waiting to be listed on my storefront to the current works-in-progress. But my hateful, cheap camera finally gave up the ghost yesterday, I think. I open it up, it plays the boot up video and sound, then the screen goes blank and it shuts off. It has brand new batteries, so I know that isn't the problem.
It's been doing odd things like this for months. At Anna's birthday party, it took two pictures of the cake, and about 3 seconds of video. The rest of said video and all the rest of the pictures I took were solid black. So, I'm in the market for a new camera. I'm going to try to see if I can find a decent one with a case and a tripod, so I can use it for personal and business photos without getting massive blurred photos.
Unfortunately, it decided to stop working right as I was trying to take the photos of the June giveaway item, so I'm going to have to try to see if I can get an okay picture with the flatbed scanner today. I really don't want to have just an okay picture for the giveaway, but I really don't want to skip the giveaway either. So, I'll figure something out.
Other than that, it's a typical Sunday for us. Anna is playing, Sammy is in his bouncer, and Sam is sleeping. I do wish it would either go on and rain or clear up and be sunny. Seems like the weather can't make it's mind up.
But I'm out to play with the kids. Later.
Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there, and to all the daddy's who have to be mom's as well! I hope you all have a great day!
Mine has started out fairly well, but I promised to let my husband sleep in today since he's been getting very little sleep all week, so by noon, I'll be fairly harried because of Anna and her Terrble Two Tantrums. Boy, can she throw them.
If all goes well today, I'll hopefully get another few inches added to a couple of my knitting projects. I was on a crochet binge for a while, but I have three knitting projects on the needles. Well, two are on the needles. The third is a set of needles matched up with the pattern and the yarn, but I haven't cast on yet.
I'm working on the Anabela Scarf on Size 17s with Lionbrand's Thick N Quick in the Claret Colorway. It's looking good so far, but I keep having to frog it a little every day because I'm not getting the stitches on each side of the cable tight enough, leaving large holes in the piece, which I don't like.
And I started The Enjoyable Ribbed Scarf last night. I'm doing it on size 8 needles with a nice sky blue colored Acrylic yarn that I have loads of. I don't know what company makes it because it was given to me in a large bag of yarn that someone inherited from their mother when she passed on and nothing had labels on it. I just know it's acrylic because it melts when you put flame to it. I am liking this pattern more than the Anabela though because it's a bit easier on my hands. I'm not too good at cables yet, and no matter how loose I knit, the cabled stitches are very, very tight, thus making my wrists and fingers hurt.
The third pattern that I will be starting soon is called Moon River. I'm following the instructions exactly--same size needles and same weight of yarn. Color is a variegated green though, so it should look interesting.
Well, the kids are getting fussy so I am going to head on out and play with them.
Happy Mother's Day, Everyone! :o)
