2 posts in one day?! That's a first!

I forgot to mention that managed to line my bag (which I knit last year) this weekend. I have been using it all week and I love it. It's the basic bag from Sally Melville's book The Knit Stitch. I love it so much I think I am going to make another one. I used a ribbon yarn which I bought cheaply from Lincraft last year and I knit it on 6.5mm needles. I have not taken a picture of it yet.

My other bag which I knitted from some wool I dyed myself also needs to be lined and it's missing a buttn. i have not managed to find a large enough button for the bag. I want a HUGE button.. strong solid big button!

Did I mention mys hoping spree at Esprit? I went shopping 'by accident'. I swear! I did! I went in there to 'look' ONLY. I had no intention of buing anything. All that changed when the sales assistant handed me a scratchie thing and I got 50% off everything in sore. I ended up with 2 t-shirts for mu, one for my aunt nd 4 for me. I also bought a mesh bag to keep all my knitting accessories together. How much did I spend? All that for about $81. That's such a bargain I want to go back, but I am trying to resist.

I saw some Jo Sharp yarn being sold on Ebay. they price is great but I can't justify another yarn purchase. I still have 500g each of Camel, Forest and Teracotta. I have come to realise that 500g is not enough for whole jumper for me.. what's a girl to do? No.. no .. no I will not buy more. I'll just have to combine the yarns to make a jumper for me. I think all three of those colours will coordinate qute well.

Did I mention the big bag of wool I received in the mail? chris saw it in the back of my car and asked what it was. I said it is a rug.. a rug-to-be. he wasnt buying that explaation so I had to fess up. It was a big bag (2.3kg) of 12ply wool I bought cheaply on ebay. Can't wait to use it. My plan was to make strips of colour with each ball and sew the strips together to make a blanket. That will take me forever to make, though. Maybe it will be aother fantasy project..
Can we have a picture of the two bags, please? :)

I would love to see them :)

A gf of mine has a rug her mother made for her son out of yarn. She did it up in i-cord and slip stitched it all together rag rug style. The rug is gorgeous and I have always wanted to make one. I'm sure your rug will be great too!
