self portrait tuesday
Self portrait with family photos, taken last week.
The knitted flowers came out of the washing machine cleaner, but not felted. Hmmm. Do they need another wash to show them I am serious?
I managed to persuade Son No. 3 to turn his knitting into a less ambitious, more achievable project appropriate for a six year old. Here is Fluffy sporting his new scarf. (And No. 3 sporting his 'Drop Dead Gorgeous' cardigan I knitted him last winter.)
And finally, I am tired of taking grainy photos with the stills option on my movie camera. I have a lovely old Pentax SLR that I take old fashioned take-to-the-lab-type photographs with, but no scanner so no emailing or blogsharing or flickring. I think the time has come to join the modern world and buy a nifty digital camera, just like real modern gals have. But what to get? Any advice? New, or on ebay? What do you all use? What should I look for? (Free knitted flower brooch to the most helpful answer! Oh god, what did I say that for ...)
