Madman gave me a new camera for Christmas. Being me, I was resistant. Nothing wrong with the old camera. (Which took me two years to figure out how to use, btw.) No, no, this one is better! New features, new capabilities! (Two years, remember? That was for simple. That means my learning curve on this new camera will be at least five years. Maybe more. By which time he'll probably have bought another new camera...) (sigh) (Don't forget I'm the Luddite who wants a cell phone that only makes phone calls.)
So, I've started playing with the new camera. Here goes nothing. (I'm having nightmares of posting pictures the size of a house...)
First up, a size comparison of the eggs we've gotten lately. (The chickens have started to lay again! Yay! )
This is the largest next to the smallest. The little fella is a 'pullet pellet' - a young hen's first egg. The largest is from one of our older hens. (And makes me cringe just looking at it. Oh, that poor chicken...)
And look! I knit something! And finished it and everything!
First FO of 2011.
Yulie by Grumperina.
Yarn - Lion wool
Mods - only one. I used tubular cast-on, which is my standard start for any 1x1 ribbing.
A quick easy knit. Love the hat, love the pattern, love the spiral that is formed by the knitting. I'll probably make this again - maybe a slouchier version.
Now, off to make egg salad for lunch. (Yay!) (Remind me in a month or so, when I'm whining about "egg salad again?!?", that there was a time when I was happy about that.)
