Cool pix

I've been late in updating the weekly round up cos I've been playing with my brand new camera.

Lyn and I met up on Thursday to have lunch and then to do some winding. But first I walked into a photo shop and looked at what cameras they had on offer. DH and I had always wanted to get our own camera instead of relying on my office's very old Nikon and my sister in law's very new Canon Ixus 7.0. We wanted to get something in between.

So with the expert advice of the sales man and some help from Lyn, I settled on a Nikon Cool Pix 4600.

I've been playing around with it all weekend and all I can say is I have the shaky hands syndrome. I haven't been able to catch a decent photo of my son but I did get a pic of what I've been doing in the last week.

Granny squares

Yep! refreshed a little of my crochet skills and even got Lyn to try out her crochet skill on a simple square. In fact I am inspired to slowly but surely crochet a blanket or throw a'la Jackie . Of course, she knitted all her squares, but I really like the idea of a hodge podge blanket of colourful squares.

So for the Monday round up - well nothing has changed from last week's list except - add some granny squares and *ahem* a crochet top and a decision to frog the Green lacy top for a crocheted project someday.
