Welcome to Wool on Sundays and thank you to everyone who linked up and left comments last week :)
My yarn finishes have been a bit thin on the ground lately and this partly because I feel I really should be pressing on with the never ending blanket, rather than starting new projects.
But about two weeks ago, I decided to invest in a new camera. You may remember that when my old camera came back from it’s holiday (without me!) in Sri Lanka, it refused to turn on. I still haven’t been able to find anyone to fix it so I decided to buy this one, a Canon PowerShot, which I saw on sale. It is very small and light so I think it will be a useful addition if I can get my other one working, as that is bigger and heavier and, to be honest, quite a nuisance to cart about all day. The other big appeal to me with the Canon it that it claims to be good in poor light and light in the UK Winters is my biggest problem with taking pictures. A final bonus is that it corrects handsake!
Having made this purchase, though, I’ve been worried about taking it out because it seems very delicate so I decided I’d better make it a case. I used Drops Nepal (aran weight) and a 4mm hook and worked it in the round in dc throughout, except one ‘eyelet’ row (two rows from the top), where I worked dc, ch1 in alternate stitches. It’s quite soft and thick so I hope it will offer enough protection. Although I was aiming for something entirely functional, it did look rather drab and boring so I added a crochet heart and button to brighten it up.
