Cool stuff

Thanks for all your well wishes in response to the last post. I'm feeling loads better and normal content will resume soon. I do have some knitting content to show you, but it's not mine.

Carrie Anne very kindly sent me a Brit Knit Cast badge because I'd taken part in one of her podcasts. It now takes pride of place on my bag.

She also sent me this lovely amulet bag from a MagKnits pattern. It's gorgeous and is now home to my phone. My poor phone gets really battered about so this will help protect it from any more abuse.

Thanks Carrie Anne, I love it.

There was also a card with a print of one of Carrie Anne's fabulous carvings on it, but you'll have to head over to her site to see it.

Cool swag! I love the colors in the amulet bag - really pretty!

And if you ever want something from KnitPicks, talk to me! I'm sure we can arrange a swap of some sort. =)

Yeah - I second the cool colors in the bag. And that is a neato button. Love the "shine".

And yeah - just speak up if you want some Knit Picks stuff. I don't mind being a go-between either.

Ooo you naughty enablers Trillian and TG, but thanks very much, I'll know where to come. I've just bought a shiny new computer though, so I've got to behave for a bit.

The amulet bag is the perfect size for my phone, so I'm super pleased with it.

Beautiful bag, and a great button! How exciting to participate in a podcast :0)

That button looks great on your bag. I will have to listen to that episode. I am so behind on my podcast listening. I got into The Devil Wears Prada audiobook and podcasts were put on the back burner. I am still catching up! :)
