Knittin' and Sittin'

I spent some time @ Border's recently and I picked up these...The latest copy of Simply Knitting (a UK mag I like because it always includes a free gift with each copy) and the Harlot's new book!

The free gift was a set of cable needles which I used right away to finish up the hood on CPH (pics coming soon!)

I also started work on Amanda's Squatty Sidekick; a felted bag I saw on Ravelry. It's a free download on the Knitting Daily website. Here is a VERY bad pic of the bottom of the bag.

It's a pretty quick knit (it's knit with worsted weight wool on size 10.5 US needles). The only reason it isnt actually done yet is b/c I stopped working on it to finish the hood on CPH. All I have left to do on that is the button band. I'm so close to finishing I can't believe it and it fits great! This is gonna be my fall/winter jacket for sure! I love it!
