My Mom actually came through this year and bought me a new knitting bag.

The Elizabeth Austin bag that I've been carrying for the last two and a half years was getting pretty sad, and so this was definitly something I needed. The cream/grey country toile and gone mostly grey and grubby, despite frequent baths, and there were holes wearing in several spots.

The new bag is a nylon tote from Land's End. It's gorgeous, has just enough pockets, and has already won the DH's approval because it isn't an "old lady" bag.

The funny part of this whole story is that I had to have DH throw away the old bag. I just couldn't bring myself to do it! Despite the fact that it was in such bad shape, and despite the fact that I had long ago decided that it was in fact too old for me/not my style, it has been very servicable and has held many memories.

Ah well. Time to make new ones with the new bag!

Yeah! Toys for Christmas! And the bag you've been talking up for most of the year! Santa listened to you after all! Yes Virginia, mothers do learn to pay attention to Santa too!

Glad to hear about your bag and can't wait to see the new marvel! This sounds really snazzy. I don't remember ever having looked at the pictures -- do you have a link we can check out until I get a chance to see the thing in the flesh?


The morn is up again, the dewy morn
With breath all incense, and with cheek all bloom,
Laughing the clouds away with playful scorn,
And living as if earth contain'd no tomb --

--Byron Childe Harold's Pilgrimage 3.98
