July 27 of 31

I finished the camera case for Jamie's cousin Melanie. She's turning 30 next Saturday, and I wanted to make it for her, as a surprise, since she hinted on my birthday at that family bbq that we had that she liked my father-in-laws. So I'm popping it into the mail tomorrow, to her house, as a surprise. I hope she likes it. I think I have enough yarn to make a 5th case. It takes about 9-10g for a case, and from a 50g ball I have about 9-10g left. The scale was tethering between 9 and 10 g. Couldn't make up it's mind. So I hope to see enough yarn to make 1 more. However, I have more of this same yarn in a different colorway of variegation. I want to next make one for my Fuji Z1 camera and one for my canon SD1000. I throw my camera into my bag, and I think it needs to get cozy. It's on the list.

Voila. Case number 4. Such an easy and quick knit! I love it! I just hate grafting, so that took a while to get done, but now it's done, so I'm happy!

I was looking for an entertainment center/table for Sean. I wanted something that he can stand up against, and "play". Something with learning and music and this Leap Frog toy was perfect for the job. I picked it up at Toys R Us for Sean yesterday.

He just loves it! He was having a field day playing with all the buttons. I am glad that this purchase was a successful one, and that he likes it.

Today for lunch we had Jamie's ex-coworkers over for a bbq, and it was so hot outside. The weather was so disgusting out today, I didn't want to do anything at all.

This evening Jamie had baseball and I put Sean in his playpen to play and I got a lot of sewing done. I finished the curtains for the front room, I'm hoping Jamie will install that tomorrow, and take down the old ugliness. I'll do a before & after picture. I also sewed some pouches, which are going in the mail tomorrow. One was a prize I need to mail out, and the other was for a special order. I can't show pictures until they're received, as they are both surprises, so I will show pictures soon.

I'm in the middle of watching the movie Reign Over Me with Adam Sandler right now. So far, it's a very sad movie, but very well done. Don Cheadle is also in the movie, Liv Tyler, Jada Pinkett Smith. It's a good cast, and even though it's not really a chick flick, I don't think it's the type of movie Jamie would like, so I am watching it without him. I'm enjoying it.

I love the camera case. Did you just knit in the round and then graft the bottom. Or did you do something more complicated to get such nice shaping. What yarn did you use it is pretty too?

Super cute! What was your pattern for this? (Or, how many sts did you CO, etc?)

I think my Elph would love one!
