Look what I bought:
I know, I didn't need another bag. But I really like it. And I managed to justify it by telling myself I DESERVE it for being so good about the diet all this time. It's the Lady B bag from Lexie Barnes (ordered from kpixie, and it is so great. It is totally weatherproof and has tons of pockets inside. It is nice and big, but not too huge. The print reminds me of the crazy old flowered suitcase I used to carry books in high school. It is totally me. It only took 2 days to get here.
As for the Hip Knits Silk, I wanted that too. I don't usually go for the warm colors, but I really liked this colorway.
Luckily I just got a check from Creative Knitting for the second design or my husband would be getting cranky (the Lady B was not exactly cheap!)
I'm almost done with my little Lion Brand affair (big shruggy thing out of Wool Ease Thick and Quick)- it's destined to belong to my mom. So out of character to use acrylicky yarn (or super bulky for that matter!) but I don't want to get too predictable. Now I know why I don't use big needles, though- it hurts!
This weekend I'm going to do some swatching for my new South West Trading designs- the yarn is coming Tuesday- and maybe start my Sockapalooza socks. I've decided I'm using Koigu-- my pal likes it all and I've been dying to knit with it, especially after grappling with the size 15's all week! Now to decide on a pattern...
