Pattern sales and camera issues

I dropped off a set of Felted Nesting Bowls at Great Yarns, my local yarn shop, and Fontelle, the owner, told me that she had sold two of my Felted Lizard patterns. I was so excited, my first sales, the pattern had just gotten back from the printer.

To celebrate I bought myself a new book, Viking Patterns for Knitting by Elsebeth Lavold. I know, usually I would buy myself more yarn but I'm feeling a little full right at the moment. And I didn't have a good way to sneak it in past my husband. Now that I think about it though, my friend Shelley was with me and she could have brought the bag in to the house and said it was hers. Oh well. I'll use that next time Shelley and I go out to get yarn, which happens alot. She's my favorite yarny co-consperator.

Once the bowls have been photographed that pattern'll go off to the printer too. Then Great Yarns will carry two of my patterns. Yeah! Fontelle is going to be putting them up for sale on the website pretty soon too. I'm sure once that happens I'll get all excited and blog about it then too. There has even been talk about kits.

Now I have to finish the pattern for the frogs.

In other news my camera is still not talking to my computer, so no pictures. I got the drivers, I got the cables, I put in fresh batteries, it's still not working. I just need to get the full install disk from the camera manufacturer. It could happen. My friend Leonard is going to help me figure it out tomorrow. Maybe he can get the camera and computer to talk to each other.

Sigh. Next time.
