Camera emergency!

My much-beloved Olympus C-3030 croaked on Friday morning, much to my consternation. I've been doing tons of research on what to buy, and, in the meantime, my Mum very kindly brought her neat little Canon Powershot A620 along with her on Friday.

So, I managed to take photos of two scarves for the EtsyFAST (Fiber Arts Street Team) January Challenge and post them. January is the last month of the Elements Challenges, and we are creating items inspired by the element of fire. Want to see mine?

First is a full-length scarf in Hayes Primrose shadow weave, using a nice bright red, orange and a soft tan bamboo to take down the heat a little bit. So... Un Poco Caliente (A Little Hot).

I think I'm going to have to redo the photos of this scarf. That's a white towel it's sitting on - you'd never guess it, it looks kind of blue, doesn't it?

And, next, on the same warp, but using a different treadling sequence, a little scarflette. Un Poquito Caliente (A Little Little Hot) (Isn't Spanish fun? Love those diminutives.)

If you want to find other folks' creations for the January challenge (there's some really scrumptious hand-dyed yarns, e.g.), just search for the EtsyFast and/or January Challenge tags on Etsy.

I wound up ordering a Powershot A720 from Amazon - should be here on Wednesday! Can't wait! I really miss having a camera, I hadn't really realized how much I use it...

Kristen, these scarves are very lovely, yes, and HOT. Glad you have your camera coming....Scares me because mine is making a really strange clicking sound when I turn it on.
