In which we have HANDBAG Lust.

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!

Evil, evil person, tempting me with those bags! It's bad enough that I keep surfing Jordana Paige's site to see the satchels and messenger bags! Stop it!

And just to get back at'cha, check this out: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=69874
 
I am curious about the Namaste massager. I just ordered one in cranberry.

Heheh... yarn or handbags? Hard call! I'm kinda lucky... people seem to give me bags, so I have plenty and have (so far) held at bay the urge for a Haiku or Jordana Page bag... MMmmmm. WTG on 7 hats so far. :)
 
Love the first bag! Love it.

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!!! :)
 
I like the red one!
 
I must be missing the handbag gene since I much prefer the sock yarn.

Cute premie hats.
 
Oh...and if you like bags, there's going to be a Jordana Paige trunk show at Coldwater Collaborative in Excelsior next week, Wednesday through Friday.
