Fall down, go boom.

I finally used my KFYS 2D - Get out of Jail Free Card.
Lovely Knitpicks Decadence in WinterBerry.

I am going to take my first knitting class ever and make a little Lace Kimono Shrug. I have visions of wearing it to SOAR. I wouldn't have taken the confounded class, except it was the only way to get the pattern and the shop sample was really darling even in Dirt Brown EcoWool and over my scrubs.

I also finally managed to wrestle a certain delivery "service" into submission and get my new Knitting Bag:

I feel certain that y'all understand that I am not a merchandising photographer. But you get the gist.

It is a Stone Mountain Handbag Oakland Bucket. They are having their big summer sale and shipping was free. So the $140.00 bag was $54.00.

The strap can go cross body or double up for a shoulder. In the first photo I have 3 knitting books and 2 VCR cases in the center section. It has two other large zipper sections for keeping keys and personal life separate from the crack knitting project as well as 2 smaller outside zippered pockets. I weighed it in at 17 ounces empty. Not bad for leather. Obviously I don't plan to traditionally carry it with that much stuff in it, but it's nice to know in a pinch I can get oodles in it.

What is SOAR?

E - I love your new bag!! It's gorgeous and looks perfect to use as a knitting bag.

The kimono you are describing sounds darling. And I love the yarn you have chosen for it.
