Who said I don't need any more knitting books !

One of the perks of working for the company I do ( is the discount and the free books. I am not going to lie, it makes it hard to walk by all the new great books, especially all those new knitting titles that are rolling in to my store. But I have some self control, just a little and I walk away and just look and drool. But every once in awhile I break down and buy one or two. This is my recent purchase, a felted knitting purse book. I am not a fancy girl who likes small little cute bags or those under the armpits girlie bags. My bag needs to have space for a few things including my knitting. This has a great pattern for a satchel bag with a great shape that I will be making for myself.

But the one thing that I will never understand is the colors that some of these designers pick for there bags. There is no way in hell that I will be carrying a fuzzy pink handbag, not unless it was given to me by a GORGEOUS man with an engagement ring inside, and even then I would have to question how well he really knows me.

I had a great dinner at Rosa Mexicano on Friday night with Minnie and Pat. Their food is great and they make the guacamole right in front of you, and all I did was spice it up a little. We then end up at the Pig n Whistle. This midtown bar with some other co-workers for a few drinks. It was perfect way to end the long day with some friends I haven't seen in awhile, and of course catching up on all the company gossip, and who doesn't like that.

Have a great weekend everyone... Happy Knitting !!!

You said discounted and FREE books! You have the dream job! :-)

I love purses and bags. I'm with you - they have to be able to hold stuff (including knitting!). That book looks awesome.

Hi, Maribel! I saw on Nancy's blog that you finally started your own, and after reading so much about you on her blog I had to come over here and say hello! Call me cheesy, but it's also great to see another Latina knitting blogger. How much more of a subset can you get? Anyway, I'm loving your posts and I had to comment that I used to live two doors away from Rosa Mexicano (if it's still on 58th street)! Nice place. I'm visiting NYC next week for spring break...maybe I'll go back there (although we eat a lot of Mexican food here in Texas, I think it would be good to mix it up a bit).
