awaiting a new camera . . . in suspense

soooo, first my old camera broke.
thennnnn, we tried to fix it.
neexxxt, I spent hours and hours researching a replacement.
finnnnally, I found one:
Canon SD 880

It’s arrived!
Time to read the manual while the battery is charging,
and tomorrow maybe I can take some good photos of FO’s.

Well, Now What??

I have about ten thousand plans for scarves, scarf kits, balls of yarn earmarked for scarves, lace scarf plans, warm scarf ideas, etc. Now I learn that neither my son, husband, sister, neice or nephew wear scarves!!

How do they keep their necks warm?

Good thing my daughter loves scarves . . . and I do too!

Black Friday Shopping Bargains!

Wow, what a day!
My husband and I sayed up ALL NIGHT in order to hit the first sales at 4:00 a.m.!
We planned our strategy and it really paid off.
4:00 a.m.
I went to J.C. Penny’s and scored a crockpot and faux-leather handbag
while hubby was at Sears getting a new flat screen TV
(the old one is six months old, after all!)
oh, and new tool sets!
5:00 a.m.
On to Belks and Macy’s for more bargains galore!
6:00 a.m.
Target and WalMart!
Then on the way home, a quick stop at Dick’s Sporting Goods,
for some, you know, sporting good stuff.
Time for breakfast!

P.S. Anyone who believes a single word of this
doesn’t know me or my husband very well.

Stay Tuned for Future Giveaways

Well, that was fun! I enjoyed culling yarn that, realistically,
I have no immediate plans for.
I liked seeing Michelle take it under her wing.

My whole relationship with my yarn has improved.
I still have three nice-sized baskets full of yarn,
but it’s all yarn I like, and I have ideas for all of it.

This was so much fun that I think I’ll go through
knitting books and magazines, maybe clothes that
don’t fit anymore – who knows!

My new project is a scarf for my son’s birthday next week,
made from this gorgeous stuff:

Pattern comes from Jane Ellison’s Queensland Collection,
a book of mens’ patterns –
although I might make the cabled vest for myself!

One More Thing

The yarn is free, but if I have to mail it,
you’ll need to pay the shipping.
It’s still a great deal!
