Camera Issues

So I left my camera charger in the cabin we stayed at in Branson two weeks ago. I called them, and they said, yeah, we have it, we'll ship it to you. So I paid their $10 shipping fee, and when the box got here--it was the wrong changer! I don't know what it is they sent me, but it's certainly not my camera changer. So I call them back, and they tell me that's the only thing they found and my charger apparently just disapperated into thin air.


In knitting news, I finished my Monkey Pal Socks. The Koigu pooled horribly on the second sock, and I felt bad about sending them to my pal, especially after reading an entry on her blog about a pair of socks she did with Lorna's Laces that striped nicely on one sock, and pooled on the second one and how much she hates it when socks don't match and she ended up giving them to her sister. Oops. I suck as a Monkey Pal because I left them to the last minute and so didn't have time to redo the second sock. My pal said she loves them anyway. Yeah, right.

I received my socks too. Lovely Koigu Monkeys, a handsewn projects bag, monkey keychain, and a skein of Jitterbug sock yarn in the most gorgeous blue-green color.

I'm still working on Tangled Yoke. I am about 4 rows from finishing the main part, and then will start on the sleeves. Hmm, what else--yak scarf for my Dad, Trellis Scarf for ISE5. No socks on the needles right now! Amazing, I know. I spent all last week making crafts for my sister's church sale. I told her I didn't donate to churches, but she guilt-tripped me into it. Two pairs of Saartje's Boooties (Ravelry link), and a set of holiday ballband dishcloths.

Well, this will probably be the last post from my with photos until I figure out what to do about the charger situation. I found a new one online, but I don't really want to pay $50 for it! My camera is a Canon Powershot SD600 Digital Elph if you have a creative solution for me! ***

****Edited to say: Oooh, I found a non-Canon brand charger for my camera on eBay for $1.00! And it comes with an adaptor for charging in the car. Awesome. Let's hope it works!

I'll leave you with a couple of shots from Halloween:

I love those dishcloths! I might have to rip off that idea for my mother in law's birthday.

Here's hoping your charger situation works out! That's such a bummer.

I'm sure your pal loves her socks! Any sock that someone takes the time to knit for you is a good sock, right?

How weird about the charger. I wonder just what happened to yours...but it sounds like you've hit on a good solution! I'll cross my fingers for a happy resolution. I sometimes feel badly that I chose a camera that works on regular batteries, but I'm so bad about charging things that I knew it would be the better choice for me.

I lost my camera charger once, bought a new one at RadioShack and then found the original. Of course. In any case, I hope your replacement works so I can check up on your Tangled Yoke progress.

There's nothing wrong with your socks. I like my socks to be different rather than uniform. It adds character!!They are lovely colours as well. Good job!

Good luck with the camera situation, that sucks. Those are some very scary Halloween pictures, I must say.

That sucks about your camera charger. But I'm glad you gave us these pictures. Booties!

everybody's monkeys look so awesome. i guess i should make my own.

Although I don't think the 2nd sock looks all that bad, it does prove why I knit both socks at the same time. I think there's no way around your tension changing slightly when you knit socks one at a time.

That totally sucks about the charger, but I'm glad you found one to replace it so inexpensively.

The holiday dishcloths are a great idea and the booties are so adorable!

Hey! I DO love the socks! I don't care that the 2nd one has pooling! My LL socks were not the same color, that was my biggest issue.

Sharon said...

Hmm. My Socks that Rock yarn pooled exactly the same way on my Monkey Socks. Fortunately someone I like a lot admired them profusely, and they are now hers. I bet your pal loves hers too.
