I can't help it. Being almost totally right brained means that I can sometimes miss the obvious. Usually it's OK as I have enough children who are more balanced brain wise to keep me on track. However on this occasion it took a while for me to find the solution even though it was staring me in the face. Literally. The problem? My adorable teenage son who is as we speak/write on the seven seas sailing for China asked to borrow my digital camera. Of course as a loving mother I said yes instantly. It was the day after I had arrived back from Manila so my joy at seeing him was high and the full extent of broken items yet to be discovered.
I then realised after several days that it was going to seriously hamper my blogging. Text only posts can get a little mundane even for the most ardent blogists. What to do became an obsessive thought and I began to look very seriously at the price of new cameras. The fact that my bank balance has been on a rather drastic detox is only a minor issue.
Then as I sat replying to an email it suddenly struck me that there was a funny looking gizmo at the top of my laptop and I remembered from some fuzzy little used part of my memory that it was indeed a built-in camera. See the solution was right in front of my eyes but I could only see the big picture.
So here are a few shots of the latest knitted pieces. The skirt was knitted in Manila, the only thing I actually managed to knit I was so busy having a good time.
The sparkly wrap took only two days to knit and was an impulse buy when I went to Spotlight in a cheer myself up expedition.
The bluey/indigo lace piece is going to be the green top and went all the way to Manila and all the way back again with not a stitch being knitted.
