I must have lost my mind......

I have this really pretty sweater that I knit a few years ago and I managed to felt it. (Time out to cry about it again.) So I reknit it. I love the sweater, just not the yarn. It is a cotton/wool mix and is just not warm enough for me.
My mother-in-law asks me every time I wear it if I made it. When I tell her yes, I did she always tells me how pretty it is. Sooooo, I decided to knit one for her for Christmas. I went and got my yarn Saturday afternoon and I am almost done with the back already. I have about 4 more inches to do at the top and it will be on to the fronts. I think I just may finish it up in time.
While getting the yarn for her sweater I found a yarn that was almost like the original sweater yarn. I may have to go back and get it to make yet another one for me.
At least having knit this one twice already I know how it goes.
Pics when done.

My New Toy

Last night we went to Office Max to return some paper I bought and then did not need and I found the bestest little camera. It is a Canon PowerShot SD780 IS. It was marked down as it was the last one they had. It had been $230.00 and was now only $106.47!!! Can you believe that?
D told me to get it. Since I had been looking for a new smaller camera for me to carry I took him up on the offer. I love it.
I had to charge the battery last night so I didn't get to do anything with it until this morning. The first picture I took was of little Coley. He always ends up with weird glowing orbs instead of eyes. This camera made him have eyes!!! That alone makes me love it. (I forgot the cable at home so I can't post that pic yet.)
It is 12.1 megapixels which I think is pretty high (but what do I know about such things) and has zoom and all that sort of thing. A great little point and shoot camera which is what I want. I have gone the route of the big ole 35mm SLR camera that you can set everything or go auto and I was ready for a small bit of camera.
Here is a link to it: http://www.canon.com/camera-museum/camera/dcc/data/2009-2010/2009_ixyd_210_is.html?lang=us&categ=srs&page=ixy In case anyone wants to have a look see at it. MIne is black, don't know why they do not show that color. hmmmm....
Maybe I will take and post more pics now. Time will tell. I do at least have to post a pic of Coley with EYES. LOL
