My hubby got me a Nikon D40 for my birthday. I was truly surprised because I didn't think I was going to get it. I used to have a little point and click Sony. It worked fine for quite a few years but the picture quality was never outstanding. One day it died and I was forced to take pictures with my Blackberry. Horrible photos. Then along came my sweet little Nikon. I can't even begin to describe how very much I love this camera. It really loves taking pictures of my knitting. Speaking of knitting. I've been quite the busy little beaver. I have actually finished some projects. Shocking, I know. My latest accomplishment is Juliet from Zephyr Style. Much to my dismay it is way to big for me. Yet another lesson in yarn substitution. Lucky for my sister though as she will now be getting it for Xmas. I'm going to order some Cotton Fleece to make one for myself and possibly go down a needle size. Fingers crossed it fits me this time.
