So...I got this bag for Christmas:
It came from Scout's Swag website. I DO love the stuff she gets in, and this bag is WONDERFUL. I also have had this in my shopping cart once or twice. This would be really nice as well. (I have a birthday coming up, so I will have a ready made list, if only I can wait until February.)
However, in addition to being a yarn addict; I also am a handbag NUT! Somehow, it makes sense to me that if this bag is particularly wonderful (because Scout says so.) THIS bag must be equally fantastic (so I can have MORE projects at the ready to grab and run, right?):Notice my affinity for the brightness? However, since I already have a messenger bag, wouldn't it make more sense for me to go for the sophistication? Like this bag?
I think maybe if I just give in and buy a skein of sock yarn, I can put off these handbag yearnings (and spend a little less money). My mouse clicking finger is getting REALLY itchy.
Later I will have some sock yarny goodness to post. Also? More preemie hats! My goal was to finish 12 in January and I tied off #7 last night. Yay preemies!
And just to get back at'cha, check this out: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=69874
I'm trying to save $ for house projects-- so I've printed out the 'Tiny Happy' shoulder bag pattern to sew a few from some fabric swatches I have at home. Thus, new knitting bags-- no cost! (other than time, I guess)
If they turn out o.k., I have plenty of fabric to make *many* of them!!! :)
