Last week my lovely friend Nomi sent me an email alerting me to an ebay posting for this sweet little knitting basket/ tote. She pointed out how cute this would look in my house, with my color scheme. And she was correct. I had been wanting a new basket-y kind of thing to use specifically while I am knitting at home, I am tired of the yarn rolling around on the couch, collecting cat hair... Right, like I needed an excuse to want to purchase a new knitting related thing!
You gotta love ebay!!! I got this cutie for $6.99. The seam has come open a tiny bit on the inside, otherwise, it's perfect. There are no stains, smells, or other freaky ebay surprises! OH! It also can be used as a handbag.
I finally started the Lipstick tulle sample for the store. I went with a drop stitch pattern. I like it more than I thought I would. It was impossible to get a photo that truly represents the damn thing. You will have to trust me, it is 1983 Cyndi Lauper kinda fabulous!!! I never thought I would like working with this stuff. And I surely never thought it would look as cool as it looked in it's skein form. Wrong again!
