I'm finally using my vacation time and going away. I'd stand on my head for two weeks straight if it mean't getting a break from work.
Soooo in honour of going away, it was of course time to find a knitting /carry on bag. I wanted a bag that was big enough to carry a knitting project and my essentials but not too big that it was heavy and hard to lug around. I also wanted something in the way of a messenger bag to take with me when we are out, handbags while on vacation just aren't practical for me. I need something I can throw over my head and forget about. I had looked at the messenger knitting bags on Scout's Swag but i really don't have a hundred bucks to shell out on a bag right now.*more on that later* So after a little search in the mall and one patient...... or not so patient Moose I found the bag I was looking for. Its green, its the perfect size and the strap is easily converted to a messenger style or hand bag and did I mention its GREEN????? What could be better???
I also found a cute little notions holder in the clearance section at zellers. Its actually a five star pencil case but the cool thing about it is that it stands upright. All your notions, pens, highlighters, stitch markers fit inside, the top half zips open and it still stands upright beside you on the table while you work. And the best part ITS GREEN!
My Anniversary present arrived today! If you'll remember I was getting Moose sock blockers.
Here they are in all their glory! I of course had to pop a sock on for show. These may be the ladies small but when I put the sock on the block it made my sock look huge!
We are back at the reno's again on the house. We have some flooring, painting, trim in two rooms, and transforming another room into a bathroom before we can put it up for sale. Its going to be alot of work in the next month or two but it will all be worth it :)
