Vintage Knitting Tote and more Sales

Just a few things to report today. I finally received my latest eBay purchase in the mail. I have been waiting for ages for it to get here. It is so pretty, I don't even want to use it yet. But, I will; I can't let something this great just sit around!

It is a vintage 60's knitting needle/yarn tote. There is a notch in the top so that yarn can be put inside, the lid closed, and I'll knit happily while my yarn is safe inside. I got this little gem for $15. It is in excellent shape, and I love the orange, brown, and yellow geometric design. Not a tear on it, and the inside looks like new. What do you think?

I had been trying to get another great set of vintage knitting totes, but the bidding got rather fierce. I just couldn't see paying $70 for the lot, no matter how cool they were.

I also did another sale at the Mishawaka Hobby Lobby. This time it was eight skiens of Red Heart Fiesta yarn (a little nicer than the super saver) for $1.66 each. I think this would be a cute wear with jeans while RVing sweater. Anyway, thought I would share.

Tomorrow, I think I'll come clean about all my WIPs. I haven't been in the mood to work on anything the past few weeks. Rather, I seem to start lots of new things, but finish nothing. Perhaps if I come clean, I'll get the urge to finish a few items.

I've been realy trying hard to not start new projects until i have the current one done...but, alas, i admit i have two completely different socks on needles. One of the socks was started in November on size 2 dpn's with Rowanspun 4-ply and it's killing my eyes! I'll get around to it one day. I think.

Great tote! I collect these too!
Ebay is the only place to find them as I have only found a few in the "wild". Glad someone else loves these as much as me!
