Zip-It!

My second parcel from my secret pal arrived today all the way from America.
Look at all the great things. I am very lucky. The best is the Zip-It bag at the bottom. Yes, it is a bag made from two zips. See http://www.zipitstyle.com/ for more details. My friend Kerry has a coin purse like this, or at least she did until her bag got stolen from her office a week ago. I spent hours online at the weekend searching for a replacement for her (but couldn't find one - it is hard to search for) then this arrives in the post today - how strange is that? Kerry I am going to keep looking!
I was also really really excited to get the Hanami pattern, I think this is definitely going to be my next lace project, I have had it in my Ravelry queue for ages. Talking of lace, MS3 is about 20 rows into clue 6. I really want to finish it before Brum Knit Night next week... but not sure I will... must go and knit more...

Ooo! There used to be a stall in the local shopping centre that sold nothing but bags and stuff like that zip thing. You want me to look?

J's cousin has one of thise Zip-it bags which I've been coveting for over a year (I dropped loads of hints just before Christmas last year in the hope she'd get me one but no luck lol) Anyway, she bought it in London somewhere so I'll ask her where

Wow that is a cool present! I will look for the zip purses as well and if I find one (I am sure I have seen them at Spitalfields) I will buy one and then you can give it to me! X
