My first crochet project is all finished and surprise, it is a dishcloth! You all know that I love knitting dishcloths and now I can mix it up with crochet. It was a perfect way to practice and I really love the results. It took me a really long time to actually use my first knit dishcloth - I wonder how long it will take me to break down and use this one. For now, it is sitting pretty in my Gram's fiesta sweets compote.
Crochet class is canceled tonight - snow day (I measured 7.5 inches on my front porch this morning). This means I am going to have to venture out on my own to learn a new stitch to keep me busy for the next week... thank goodness I have my handy crochet book for reference.
And good news, I ordered a new camera yesterday, so pretty soon I will have better focused photos with more realistic color (the sweets compote is orange, well technically "red," but not quite on-fire orange) and less noise. Yay! I am really excited. It took me over a month to choose a camera. I wanted to make a frugal yet fabulous decision. I was torn between a less expensive model that would simple replace my old camera and a step up model that would give me the opportunity to grow a little, be happy for longer and hopefully stop my digital SLR lust. I chose the step up model and can't wait for it to be delivered.
