A Camera Story

First I have Great News, my Mommy finished her first sock!!!
Mommy's first sock
Ta-Da!! I would say that this is a excellent first sock. Plus it fits!! (no picture though - Mommy take a picture please!)

Ok so I was at Skywalker's musical and I was taking some pre-start pictures when my camera decided to turn off. Okay, I turned it back on and tried to take a picture, it turned off. Okay check batteries - indicator say they are full. I switch the camera to play back mode then turn it on, it is showing me the pictures so then I turn it to camera mode. I get one picture before it decides to turn off again. Yeah this is going to be fun. Only 2 pictures and only one of them is Skywalker. Now my camera is about 7 years old, has been dropped, bumped and bang who knows how many times so maybe it is about time for a new one.

Only pic of Skywalker - he was a rain drop!

Plus it couldn't take very good close ups.

Enter new camera. It is the Sony Cybershot (just like the old one). Smaller, more features and a touch screen. Plus it explains everything on the camera. No more trying to remember what setting does what.

All for the Etsy store, I mean I do need a camera to take pictures of my yarns and stuff right? = ) Speaking of store, I dyed more yarns and they should be up either tonight or tomorrow night. (Abby- there will be a fingering Ketchup and Eggs posted. This time it stayed Ketchup and Eggs during the rinse and did not turn into Ketchup and OJ)

So I am off to take pictures (and play with the camera)

Very, very cool new camera! And you are right, you need a decent camera for the Etsy shop - good photos really do make a difference.
Your mommy's sock came out great! It's fun to create a new sock addict- I mean knitter - isn't it?
