This post is VERY picture intensive, grab a cup (or 2) of your favorite libation and sit back.
Turns out the camera isn't dead after all. It was the batteries, duh
. Which is very strange because normally when that happens, I end up with this HUGE 3-5 second lag between pictures. This time however, the battery indicator showed that the battery was full and there was no lag. All of a sudden, poof, no more ability to take pictures. The worst part is that it happened in the middle of the show in Houston and I had no way to get more batteries. I'm very glad that I don't have to buy a new camera right now.
I got a huge amount knit on the trip. I was so frustrated that I didn't want to do anything that was even remotely work related during my down time. So, I got all but the toe of one of the RPM socks done and started the second. I wasn't about to peel the shoes off my feet to see if the socks were the right length on the plane. Not cool.
Here is a progress picture. Not to bad considering I was doing these a needle short of what I would have liked.
I have stayed pretty true to the pattern execpt that I did the eye of partridge stitch on the heel instead of the heel stitch that was called for. I adore how it comes out in a hand painted yarn.*
I've also got pictures of the tank and the shawl even though those haven't been touched since last week.
*Can you tell I finally figured out the macro function on the camera? Turns out that reading dozens of digi camera reviews last night paid off. Hopefully with some better photography.
