you like how i am trying out my new camera? it's quite lovely and i have been taking random pictures all over the place. you don't even want to know how many pics of my dog i took at home. poor thing must be blind from the flash by now.
but this is a picture of something i started last night. they're the valentine's day convertible mitts from stitch n bitch nation. i am using lamb's pride bulky (loooooooove lamb's pride esp the worsted) in m145 spice and some leftover m04 charcoal grey i had. i've actually gotten further today and bound off the top portion of the mitten. now i need to make the flap and thumb- exciting.
and this is a close-up of a shawl/scarf type thing i am making my mom from some really squishy lana gross yarn. i don't normally like boucle stuff but this yarn is delish! it's just plain 3 x 3 rib that is twice as wide as a normal scarf so that she can wear it as a shawl or fold it into a thick scarf.
that's all the bloggy goodness you get today. i am off to lunch and joann's to use my 40% off coupon on some new clover 9 dpns. i lost two needles at home mysteriously and i need to get more.
ps- i love macro and good lighting.
