Here is the start of my sophie bag. (free pattern - It's Cascade 220 and I started it last night at our monthly knitting group and then couldn't stop when I went home. I really had trouble putting it down to go to bed. It's a fun project. I just wish that I could put the lining in it myself when it's finished but I know I'll have to find someone to do it for me. My sewing days are long gone. And since I didn't buy ENOUGH yarn earlier in the day, I had to purchase THIS last night at our group:

It's beautiful wool, and my first purchase from a local spinner. She brought her yarns to group last night and I wanted all of it...of course! This will be the next Coronet Hat. (free pattern - And this time I will FOLLOW the directions and not make them up as I go along! Yes, there is a reason I don't design. :-)

And lest we forget to mention the progress on the sweater:
