For some time now I have been searching for a day to day bag and I finally decided a few weeks ago that what I really wanted was a Namaste bag, which to my great delight arrived today...

After much deliberation I chose the Carli bag in eggplant, which is surprisingly bigger than I expected, a good thing considering the amount of stuff I tend to carry around with me. I am very impressed with the quality and design of this bag and I love the deep purple colour.

Today also marks the beginning of my holidays (2 months off work yay!!), so with time up my sleeve I decided to dye up some yarn to cast on for the Garden Gate Socks. I dyed up a skein of rust orange and another of bluish purple which I will cast on in a few days time (I wasn't happy with the original picture so I edited it out, hopefully I'll have a better picture of the yarn for the next post) . Otherwise I have nearly finished the Featherweight Cardigan (ravelry link) and am planning on posting finished pictures this time next week.
