I finished Calvin's mittens. They were a fast project for me; I finished them in 10 days. Just in time too, since it was -4 with a wind chill of -23 when we got up yesterday (consider that it was 48 when we got up on Monday. Quite a temperature change!). My Ravelry project page for these is here.

He was thrilled when he saw I had finished them, and I tried to get a photo of his happiness, and this is what I got. :( My camera seems to have died! I think I'm going to have to get a new one -- I've tried all sorts of things, and cannot get anything but black photos. The viewfinder doesn't work, I can't get any photos no matter what setting I put it on, and the video won't work either. I can't complain too much, since I've taken 10,000+ pictures with it, so it certainly got used. Anyone have any recommendations for a camera? This was a Kodak EasyShare DX4330 (with a whopping 3.1 megapixels!), so I already have a 256mb card that I'd like to be able to continue to use.

Nice mittens!
For camera recommendations, you could check out this girl's blog: and look for the Jan 10 entry. HTH.

Since I do not have a Ravelry account (long waiting list and I do not knit anyway) I cannot see your projects, but I am sure they are beautiful. I like the gloves, and have no camera solutions. I'm involved in a tech problem of my own, trying to make Comcast's new "upgraded????" Personal Web Page program work--NOT!!!--so I can add new embroidery fonts to the DesignzMall. Technology, don't you just love it?

Did not get to comment earlier, but the costumes were wonderful.

You did a great job, Linda! I'm glad Calvin loves them, they look so warm and comfy! My Olga has been asking for red and white mittens, ever since I knit her brother a pair.
