Boo hoo!

I mentioned that we lost our digital camera during our move. It's not at the old house. It's not at the new house. And it's not under the seat in the in-laws' car (which we borrowed a couple weeks back so that they could have our car with Miss M's car seat). We think the camera is really lost. :-(

So now we need to go camera shopping again. Sigh... need to go to some stores and play with cameras. The Canon SD flavors are popular, and I love how small they are! My in-laws have one and they are happy with theirs. However, I would probably be perfectly happy with a Fuji Finepix F30 or Fuji Finepix F50fd since I am somewhat familiar with the Fuji quirks. Our recently lost camera was a Fuji F10, and the camera lost before that was a Fuji 601Z (I think, it was such a long time ago).

I went ahead and cleaned the armoire I mentioned earlier. It wasn't really dirty, just possibly slightly dusty from the move. And then I put most of my non-ghetto yarns in the cubby holes and drawers. It's 90% full now. I will have to take a photo of it someday... if we ever get a replacement camera. The doors squeak a bit so I will need to take care of that. I hope my yarn isn't claustrophobic because some of them are squished in quite tightly.

I've been thinking about using Elann Highland Wool for T's hat, in these colors:



Last week I had been thinking of using some sport weight yarn, but I think that the lighter weight yarn may not give the wearer proper "respectability" at a convention. The hat worn in that episode doesn't seem like a sport weight hat.

I just discovered that I already have the red one, so I'd be 1/3 of the way there! That means picking up 2 balls of orange and 2 balls of yellow. It seems ridiculous to order just 4 balls of yarn, so something else would have to fall into the shopping cart too. I'm a bit hesitant about placing another order so soon since I placed one with them 3 days ago. I seem to be better at collecting yarn than knitting with it. I'm saving it for a rainy day...

What is non-ghetto yarn?

Try the Canon A720 - my new toy!

I had to go look up the Jayne Cobb hat. Your colors are close, you should be good to go!

Voila! You have matched the colors for a Jayne hat as close as anyone I have ever seen. It is good to see there are still dedicated Serenity fans out there.

Browncoats!
