Fun with an SLR

We got a new camera for the Studio, and I have no idea how to use it. So, I took it and the book home on the three day weekend to learn the difference between the 8000 different settings. Here are some pics I took in the garden (I must have been hungry when I took these, since most of them are of food)

I finished one of my toe up socks. It’s SOOOO comfortable

The Flame Stitch Cardigan is coming along. Almost up to dividing for the arm holes.

I can’t bring either one of these to Ireland, since they are both on metal needles. I have to start a few projects on my Denise plastic needles. I decided to redo the Ribbon Xback top, since I’ve never been happy with it. I ripped it out along with my one skein shrug. With the extra yarn I should have enough to remake it longer and in a tigher gauge. I want to rewrite the pattern with side shaping and increase stitches around the chest & go to a tighter needle so I won’t look slutty wearing it.

    Canon EOS RebelXsi. Love it, sadly it’s not mine and tomorrow it goes back to the Studio (sigh)

    The SLR will be a long love affair and I wish you much happiness with it. I still don’t know much about E’s except how to turn it on, assist with changing lenses while sprinting to the perfect view of something-or-other, and how to snag lots of train pics while he’s driving and unable to more than say “hey, that’s MY camera”. 😉

    safe and enjoyable travels my dear!
