November.

How the hell did this happen? How did it get to be November already, when I haven't made any progress toward my September October goals? I have a lot of things I want to do in the next two months, I have end-of-the-year goals, but I'll only post a couple of them in the sidebar.

I've been out of sorts this week. I haven't been to the gym in a month, I'm feeling extraordinarily fat, my job is still insane, and to top it all, I came down with some sort of thing that leaves you feeling tired, headachy and punky. Girlchild had it, it's going around the office, it's everywhere in my world. I'm on day two.

But on a positive note, I finished something. I had an urge to felt, I had leftover Kureyon and Cascade 220 in the stash, and I had a need for a lunch bag for work.

The Vintage Bubble Bag from Pursonalities.



Pre-felting. I love the colors, it worked just the way I imagined it would.





See how roomy? It can hold lots of fruit and veggies. I'm very, very pleased with this one. The specs - 2 skeins of Kureyon in colorway 159, two purple Cascade 220, I don't know what color number. Size 10.5 and 15 circulars. Lots of quality TV time knitting.

Caroline! Hola, Chica! Where ARE you these days? Did you wave bye-bye to FL for good and ever, or is this just some sort of sabbatical that leaves me deep puke green with envy?
