My New Favorite Thing

I've still been working on a few things. I'm doing the Shrunken Jacket from my Double Stitch book by the Simpson sisters. I just ran out of yarn last night. Dang, cause I got it from Knit Picks and I hate to pay that shipping fee just for one ball of yarn and spending $50 to avoid it ain't in the budget right now. So, I'll guess I won't be able to wear my jacket it this weekend.

That's cool because I'm still working on my Oz by Kamika King. I think I'm almost done with my sleeves. I might be able to finish this by Friday if I focus. I'm not planning on blocking it and my family gets started late for any activities so that gives me 3 whole knitting days.

But, I wanted to show you my new Kathy Van Zeeland bag. I picked it up at Marshalls for $40 bucks. I'd seen it there previously and since it's totally not my style I'd overlooked it, or better yet, talked myself out of getting this gaudy purse. My mind couldn't shake it. They had this silvery colored one, a tan one and a pink one. Which of course was gone by the time I went back to get it.

See the bling? Those are charms hanging from a key chain.

It has so many pockets. One side for regular purse stuff, a middle pocket for cosmetics, and one side for, you guessed it, my yarney fetishes. Just as good as and way cheaper than those other stylish knitting bags. I can fit a whole hand full of crochet hooks in that bling-bling pocket up there.

On what I call the regular purse side, there's not just a cell phone pocket, but two pockets for i.d.'s and credit cards! No more wallet needed. By the way Blogger flipped these pictures for me. Thanks alot, NOT!

And yet another pocket that I use for my loose change. I love this bag.

I know that since I got this bag from Marshalls it's most likely from several seasons ago. I don't care. If I find it in pink, or red or something, I'm getting another.

I'm a sucker for a bag with a lot of compartments and pockets myself. :-)

Way to make it work! I'm carrying 2 bags, my purse and a banana republic tote.
