Knitting Up A Storm!

Friday, March 24, 2006

I always get a bit giddy when I spot new bags, purses, totes etc. I look at them and think, hmm, wonder what I could use that one for. 9 out of 10 times I walk away because I know I have way too many bags in the closet to justify buying one more.

But not this time baby. I went to the wine store yesterday, well that is somewhat of a lie. I went to the grocery store and on my way out I passed the wine store and bought a bottle of Hillebrand SAUVIGNON BLANC, an Ontario wine. I paid for it and the spotted this cute little wine gift bag and thought it would be perfect for my sock in progress.

What do you think? The outside:

The inside, I couldn't get the right light going, but you get the drift:

It even has a little handle on the back, so freaking cute.

Not much knitting to report because I am reading. A lady who takes the same GO train as me home was reading a booked titled Bitten, written by Kelley Armstrong and raving how great it is. So I asked her if I could borrow it when she was done she lent it to me. I am about half way through and find it very difficult to put down and now know why she loved it so much.

For those who know me I am far from a patient person and wanting to get things pretty much immediately kicked in when I learned Kelley Armstrong wrote 5 other women of the otherworld and promptly bought the remaining four at lunch today. The 5th one is due to be released this year, but I will wait till it comes out in softcover. That I can certainly wait for as I hate lugging hard covers around, plus I don't want to pay $40.00 plus for a book.

If you want to read a great story, buy Bitten, you won't be sorry. I know it sounds very freakish, but it is not. The storey is so intriguing and Kelley Armstrong writes so well she sucks you into the story. You definitely will not be sorry.

The bag does seem the perfect bag for a sock on the go! Nice.

I'm always looking for good book recommendations so I put Bitten on hold from the library..
