Next up, the fifth song! This one will be in Ever After Yarns, in the Classic base. I finally got to take a picture of the skein with my brand new camera. Swatching has been done and I really think this one is gonna be a stunner in this gorgeous blue.
I love, love, love, love my new camera. Although it’s very big compared to what I’m used to. I got a Canon Rebel T1i with the 18-55 kit lens, and also a 55-250 zoom lens, plus a bunch of accessories. Last night I used the zoom to look at the moon and I could see nooks and crannies! It was amazing!
And hey, who is this cute young man? Can you believe that he is already 13? The flash fired on this one, and though I need to invest in a good flash, I’m pretty pleased at how this looks. Yes, he’s 13. Yes he’s rocking a mini mustache. And he’s nearly as tall as me, and I’m 5’10”. Where did the time go?
And one more picture, just for posterity. I really want to be able to take those artsy fartsy photos where the background is all blurry and the front is all focused and awesome. So I’m super insanely excited that having just gotten the camera yesterday I was already able to take this:
Lots of learning to do, but I’m really excited about it all. If anyone has suggestions for tutorials or photo assignments or the like, I’d love to hear them. I’m gonna set up a 365 set on my flickr, and I’m reading like crazy, but I need all the help I can get!
