An Update

No Made It By Monday today... I attempted to use my parents camera and my webcam to capture the tutorial but it just wasn't the quality I was looking for, and I didn't want to give you guys a bunch of dull and unsharp pictures.

The good news is, I think I have narrowed my camera search down to two cameras. I considered a DSLR for a bit, but with being at school and potentially going abroad to Spain next spring I just didn't want to worry about having an expensive, heavy camera to cart around.

Instead I found a site that reviews cameras and I found two nice point and shoot that were of reasonable prices. I'm either thinking of a Samsung WB150 or a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX77

I think I'm going to go with the Samsung because I'm not a big fan of touch screens, plus I found a package deal online that comes with the camera, case, memory card, and a bunch of other stuff including a tabletop tripod which will definitely come in handy taking pictures for this blog.

I told myself I have to make the decision this week, and just spend the money. I think that's has been what's holding me back.

I've almost finished my Summer Flies, too, and I really want to photograph it. It was a welcome change of pace after finishing my Beatnik, and I just have to weave in a few ends.


  1. Oh I love it! I'm going to have to make one of those. I'm not really a shawl person but I like how you wear it.

  2. I think that both of those cameras would serve you very well! You will be taking amazing photos again in no time! Congrats on finishing that project, it is very pretty (although it looks awfully warm to be wearing right now).

  3. Haha, yes it was definitely way too warm. I'll be waiting for a day when it's at least under 75 before I take actual pictures of it!

  4. I'm really not a shawl person either - I always think they are so pretty but I never wear them. This one is great for wearing as a sort-of scarf. I knit it in cotton, too, so it's got great drape and it's light - you should definitely give it a try!
