T and I pretty much pick out and buy our own presents, so there won't be much surprise when Christmas rolls around. I did get a couple of gifts I wasn't expecting, though.
My knitting friend Nancy gave me this cute little bumblebee tape measure from Lantern Moon.
Yesterday, I bugged out of work early and joined Margie and Amy at a 50% off sale at a local yarn shop. I looked and looked, not seeing much I had to have, and then I saw this:
It's a Jordana Paige satchel, the same style Carin and I armwrestled over when she visited last summer. And it was the last one in the store, and it was half off! *swoon*
Obviously, it became my little gift to myself.
It holds a ton o' stuff. In this picture, it has two socks, two scarves, and a shawl, and it still has room for more.
After realizing yesterday that I haven't finished any knitting projects in ages, I decided to suck it up today and finish the i-cord handle for the Blue Jeans Purse.
I'm going to add a lining to it, but knitting-wise, it is done. And darned cute, if I say so myself.
