back to baltimore and a brand-new bag!

Whew, that was a lot of "b" words! I was home all week for spring break, and I am now back in Baltimore. I didn't get a whole lot of knitting done, or reading for that matter (whoops!) but I did find a new knitting bag at happysq's etsy shop. Here it is:


And the back - which I think is super awesome:


The back has instructions for casting on and the knit stitch. I think it's super cool anyways!

As for actual knitting this week, like I said, I didn't get a whole lot done. I've got a few inches on the lace cap now, and I "finished" the hood for the bf's vest. I say "finished" because now that it is done I think I might have to frog the whole hood. When I pull it over my head it doesn't even cover my ears. Oops. I have two options: 1. Pull the hood apart and start over, cast on closer to the centre of the neck, or, 2. Add a ribbed collar to the hood and sew it to the neckline afterwards. I'm leaning more towards option 1 now because it will look closer to what I was originally aiming for... but it means ripping out all that hard work and starting over on a bigger garter stitch hood. Oh well, that's the price you pay for love... and man is he lucky I love him after an entire garter stitched vest!
