camera crisis

okay, it's official. i've done lost my camera. yes, baby pictuers, puppy pictures, knitting pictures and all.

last time i saw i was *thinks* when my sister came home from the hospital, so around thanksgiving. it's almost been a month and i can't find it. but, i did find the freaking charger and the usb cable...

i'm hoping that i find it soon, but if anyone wants to donate to the "eca needs a camera" there's a lovely camera that's pretty cheapy AND donates a portion of the proceeds to breast cancer =) Fuji's Z3 in "breast cancer awarness pink" at best buy for $200...

yes i know "but eca, that's a lot of sock yarn i could buy with that... shoot, that's a lot of yarn period... that's like, 2 or 3 sweaters right there!"

my sister tells me to keep looking. my wallet tells me to keep looking and find my old 2mp camera

but we'll see.

oh, making awesome progress on the camisa. it's super quick! really super quick. i just hope alpaca doesn't drape. i was reading the swatching/blocking instructions off of and that thing said to hang the swatch with a DPN threaded through it for weight, and check it again in a day or two.. .MAN! Why does swatching take forever!??!?! so yeah, i skipped the hanging processes, but i did wash it!

now i'm worried my fat gut won't fit into the damn thing! oh well. we shall see! i'm hoping to wear it for new years... wouldn't that be cool?

pick me up

okay... i needed a little boost because i haven't been in the best of moods lately...

so i went knitting shopping (pics to come later).

i purchased:
classic elite straight knitting needles (14" US 6)
bryspun straight knitting needles (14" US5) - I really wanted to try the DPNs but i was very unimpressed with the tip
brittany birch dpns (7" US2) - they make US1.5 and US2.5!!! how cool is that?!?!?

And i got some lorna's laces... i think I got tahoe??? but i'm not quite sure...

when i find my camera, charge the battery, and take the pictures off the card, I'll be sure to post come pictures.

As for the pattern of these lorna's... i'm not quite sure yet. my needle, yarn, and i will conference and get back to you!

blah! blah i say

okay so instead of working, i spend the past 30 minutes working on this blog... to which blogger said "if you don't like it you can switch back..."

and i don't see that switching option... anyways, i'm going to have to redo this.... blah blah I say!

ehhhh... maybe i should give up blogging and just do stalking?

i mean, i've unravelled so many projects and picked up others... unravelled those and redone others....

we'll see. it's not like i have time to do this b/c of school and all.
