New Things~

Since I'm on a "yarn diet" that doesn't prevent me from buying accessories...does it?


Thanks to the perfect sales pitch from Stephanie and a very good sale price I bought myself a Lexie Barnes knitting bag...well actually it's my "everything" bag. Since I normally carry 3 bags with me to work every morning this remedies all that. It's my purse, knitting bag and work tote (for books and such), I can carry it everywhere. I likey...do you likey?


....and





I love surprises, even one I'd forgotten about! I won a contest from Robin and had forgotten about it, I came home the other day to find a package on my doorstep. When I read the label I got so excited...and boy does she know me! Everything was (or so it seemed) put together specifically for me and my taste. I'm sure you all know how much I love Scottish music and Bonnie Rideout, she included 2 CD's, Scarf Style book, a homemade stitch marker, really cute notepad and a bar of her handmade soap, which I absolutely love!

Hope everyone has a safe & Happy Easter weekend!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!

Great bag! I keep eyeing them, but can't bond with the colors... I'm hoping they'll come out with something new that I like this year.

Great prize package too!

Happy Easter!
