Knitting and candy

At the beginning of the Christmas Break I started to knit a felted bag. I honestly thought it would be a quick knit and I had plans to knit another before the break was done. Well, that didn't happen. Unlike other bags I've knit and felted before, this one is knit on regular-size needles, not great big needles making for a fast knit. I'm just about done the bag and I still need to knit the handles and the pocket. I should be able to finish that in an evening.



For the sake of Project 365 I have been dragging my camera (my Fuji, not my new Canon, it still scares me) around with me. Today I found myself at the Bulk Barn (a bulk food store). Like a dork, I asked the manager if I could take a few photos for a project I'm working on and he agreed.







Ok, it's not candy, but I like the photo...

i'm first! yummy! but i think you should carry your canon with you. how else are you going to learn? listen - you've inspired me to take my off auto mode. if I can do do it - YOU can do it. the camera is toughter than it looks. i mean you wouldn't want to throw it. but lets say it was sitting at the bottom of a stroller and then you folder said stroller up and it hit the ground (on the uv filter) from about a foot or two. it would survive. not the uv filter, that would have to be replaced. but the camera - well, it would make it.

That soap looks like candy. :) The Fuji does all right with picture taking! Love all those colors.

I agree with Cici, you should definitely carry your new canon with you! :) Honestly, if it scares you too much start with it completely on auto & then work your way off of auto & learn how to deal with shutter speed/aperture/iso & such when you are a bit more comfortable with it:)

(And like Cici said, uv filters are definitely a godsend! :)

Oh my! Love the photos! Spenser just walked up and keeps saying, "Mommy, can I see the pictures?" I think she likes them, too.

When I visit you (lol), I want to visit that store, too.

Those are cool shots. I especially like the soap and the hearts. Now take out that fancy camera and play! :-)
