    I really like the new camera. Those socks are just gorgeous and I quite like stripey socks that dont have noticeable transitions. I think ribbing always takes longer to knit a garment in. I used to knit my daughter little ribbed cardigans and they took so long to finish off. My daughter never liked playing with barbies either and always got them as gifts so they ended up being gifted to the op shop. She would much rather be outside bouncing on the trampoline, or going for adventures near the creek across the road from our house or playing netball. It is hard to find great things for presents but I love that dinosaur book you bought. Incredible pop ups. Hope you have a great week!

    Love your comment about your daughter not playing with dolls. I had dolls, a few anyway, but don’t remember playing with them. I do remember, however, playing with roly-poly bugs. I would lay out a schematic of the floor plans of an elaborate house using sections of broken door mats. (If you are under fifty, you probably don’t know this type of door mat. The mats were made with little sections of hard rubber held together with wire. When the wire rusted, the rubber sections would separate.) Then I would make up stories as the roly-polies moved from room to room. I think I made elaborate houses because there were five of us in a three-roomed house during that time of my life. I had two sons and when the youngest, now near forty, was about four, he spied a doll at a garage sale and wanted it. The doll was about ten inches tall with a plastic head, a cloth body with a gathered skirt sewn on. It was only a dime or so, and I allowed him to purchase it. He named the doll Shampoo! I don’t remember that he played with Shampoo much, but I could never being myself to throw her away. He was back for a visit in August and I gave Shampoo to him. His daughter is sixteen and never wanted or had dolls. But she always made families out of her stuffed animals, toy dinosaurs, etc.

    I really like the new camera too! Most of all the sound level is much more consistent. I used to have to use ear buds to get the little side comments that make the podcast so multi-textural, (too much?), but I could hear everything at normal volume. And the angle seems more natural. My vote is new camera emphatic yes! And this is the first time I’ve ever commented on a blog or podcast.
    Love your face!

    Here, here. Great camera! I loved the book. I want one. Maybe I should get it for my 5 year old nephew, but maybe that would just end up being a present for dad. Really I shouldn’t, I’m unemployed right now. So, maybe next year. Hee,hee. I love watching your show. Don’t be self conscious; you are so much fun to watch. And you don’t talk about your daughter too much. I’ve been watching for several months now and I think there could be just a little bit of family stuff every week. People like that; I like that.
