knitting, bags, and camp

I’m so excited about knit camp next week I can barely stand it!  I’m still a little shocked that I won’t be knitting the subtle stripe vest there:

Well, maybe I’ll finish the neckline and armscye trim that weekend…

Instead I’ve started the lace shawl, so I should be able to just follow the simple lace pattern while I talk:

It’s only a 10 stitch repeat, what could possibly go wrong? (don’t answer that)

Along with that I think I’ll bring the long in hibernation argyle jacket, because that’s just the kind of simple stockinette I may need to fall back on…  Also, autumn is coming, and before I start any new Twist Collective patterns, I should really get some of the old ones off my needles. (that’s a link to the new fall twist collective, I haven’t looked yet, I’m headed there next!)

But before I go, I want to show off my cute new purse:

I finally retired the old vera bag with the foam showing through the handles.  Who am I kidding?  By “retired” I mean it’s now holding a knitting project…  Anyway, my new purse is a beatiful hand-made bag by RS Designs.  I’d give you a link, but they don’t have one.  I got mine at the Old Mill Craft Shop, which is like a downsized version of Etsy with all kinds of awesome stuff, plus no shipping!
