…with my old camera, that is.

Because today is my BIRTHDAY!!!!

And here’s what I got from my sweetie…


And another…


It’s a Canon Digital Rebel XT, which I’ve been coveting but couldn’t quite justify just to take photos of yarn. My sweetheart knew that I needed a great camera to take pictures for the blog, so there you have it. What can I say, he spoils me.

Now I have to go knit some good stuff, so I can take some swell pictures to justify this baby.

And Dena, (new and improved-i.e.-correct spelling!) if you’re reading this; say “hi” in the comments! I was in the hospital deli this morning with a mouth full of donut when a woman came up to me and asked, “”Are you Lorette? I read your blog; I’m a knitter, too.”Β  I was so surprised that I truly acted like a dork. I hope we run into each other again! Say “hi” if you see me again…maybe I’ll have the presence of mind to actually have a conversation!

  1. Happy Birthday! I just love these sensitive blogging hubbies – they know just what makes us happy! I hope you had a great day.

  2. You were NOT having a donut. I simply won’t believe it! πŸ˜‰
    Congratulations on the new camera! It looks wayyyyyy fancier than my new one. You will really have to “wow” us with photos.

  3. Great equipment! And ignore Norma on that doughnut question. This proves she truly doesn’t understand “quick and dirty”. πŸ™‚

  4. Happy Birthday to you!! I had a grandbaby just so I could justify buying a new camera. The lengths we go to. Of course, I actually bought it to take pictures of yarn, but the grandbaby thing sounds a little nobler! Will expect great pictures of Rogue!

  5. Happy Happy Birthday! I hope it was a wonderful day. Great camera! I’ve always thought Libras were wonderful people. πŸ˜‰

  6. Happy birthday! That is SUCH a nice camera . . . I seriously considered getting it in August, but decided that I couldn’t justify that much splurging on myself for one item that wasn’t a computer or a car or something! But . . . so tempting! You’re going to have some seriously wonderful pictures.

  7. Wow…great camera! Happy Birthday…mine is tomorrow but I won’t be expecting anything that nice. But now I’m thinking that I might need to find a donut. πŸ™‚

  8. Happy Birthday!! What a great gift. Please have your husband talk to mine. I’ve had my dream camera on my Amazon wish list since last Christmas, and it’s still there. Have a great day.

  9. Drool is running down my chin as I type. Okay well maybe not, but um virtual drool is. I love that camera, I’ve been coveting one ever since they came out. I have several SLR Canon cameras that the lenses will fit and work on the digital, so one day, it too wil be mine. Can’t wait to see the amazing pictures you will take.

  10. It’s me, Dena. Hello again and Happy Birthday. The camera is beautiful. I didn’t think you were a dork! I was the one with the “Oh, my God, it’s her!” expression on my face. (Kinda like meeting a Rock Star) It was very nice to meet you and I just love looking at your knitting. You inspire me. Thanks

  11. You will love your new digi Rebel. I get comments on how great my pics are even when they aren’t really good — the camera just takes wonderful rez. You can crop to tiny stuff, too. Congrats and happy happy b-day!

  12. Wish you many more… Health and wealth and friends by the score… Happy Birthday to you! — John McCutcheon.
    Enjoy your new camera.

  13. Happy belated birthday, Lorette! I’m lusting after that camera–may you take loads of gorgeous photos of yarn with it!

  14. Happy birthday! I hope you celebrated properly! And what a great gift- I have been lusting after that camera myself….

  15. happy birthday! (I’m a little late – perhaps we can say there’s a wacko time change that is more then a few hours off, an in this one particular case means that I’m behind (justifiably) a few days compared to where you are…)
    nice camera! congrats on the new toy – I’m excited for what we’ll see….

  16. just reading your updated site!! Happy Birthday!!!!! I did not know your birthday was coming up… we almost have the same birthday! I hope it was wonderful!!!

  17. Happy birthday to one of my favorite knitting doctors who blogs! I love my canon rebel, and i am sure that you will have lots of fun with yours.
