The no camera post

Being without my camera is practically unthinkable. I don’t think I can lose it in the house and who the hell would I lend it to.

Enter one of the hubby’s childhood friends.

 I feel as though one of my hands is missing without that camera. So many  picture opportunities have been missed. I didn’t realize how many photos I took until the damn camera wasn’t here. So instead of showing the significant progress I have made on my Affro Girl Doll I will show you some things I didn’t blog about.

I custom made these for Shannita of the SnB cabled hat fame.

Affro Girl Pin, Custom Order

The journey taken while making these has given me a new appreciation for people who frequently doing custom orders. A lot can pop up. But they are done and beautiful if I do say so myself.

I also got a whole heap of yarn recently. A huge box of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes to be exact. Fifteen balls in Claret Heather for a self designed raglan sweater. I also got several shades of brown WOTA  to see which would work best for my doll. I rounded out the selection with a couple skeins each of Coal, Cloud and Mist for other ideas knocking around my noggin.

 My hubby got a rebate in the form of a gift card right after I placed this order. He asked me if I wanted it for more yarn or something. Uhh… Yeah! The things these husbands come up with, shesh.

 So imagine 6 skeins of Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool in the shexy Bristol Red colorway in that empty space. They should be here any day now. I will admit I am anxious to see if it lives up to the hype. And to get my camera back =)

  1. Wow Knit Picks exploded in your house! :o)

    I luv luv some Silky Wool! That is one good hubby!

    I know how you feel about the camera…but now I feel like I abusing it. Somethings just need to be ‘unseen’ you know? For the memory for the experience.
    Still hope you find your camera soon!

  2. New yarn…I am so jealous! It’s gorgeous, all those colors. Hope you get your camera back, too. I don’t know what I’d do without mine.
