Yesterday, my brother sent me a link about some cosmetic bags Walgreens was selling. Not just any bags: these were WONDER WOMAN bags! I’ve loved her since I was a kid, and I’m a nerd at heart so now that I’m a grown up, I love to have all kinds of Wonder Woman stuff. You guys have seen some of it. So I followed the link and then almost immediately drove to my local store. Nope, they didn’t have them. Didn’t know anything about them. Shoot. I came home, searched some more, and thought the closest store that had any was 30 minutes away. But no! My brother discovered a closer store that said it had one of the bags. I figured one was better than none and set off again. And GUESS WHAT?? They had all three bags I wanted! So yes, I bought myself an early Mother’s Day gift because how could I not? The big one will be a project bag, and I’m not sure about the two medium sizes. That littlest one came with a set of makeup brushes, and they’re cute and all, but whatever. This is a notions pouch, am I right? And that clear one in the back? It has a cape!I am more than pleased with my new bags. I think they’re delightful.
Somehow I also ended up with some new yarn yesterday. I don’t know how it happened. But it was all half off, so that’s something. This is Cascade 220 Superwash Aran, so squishy and soft! Love this stuff.
This is Berroco Lustra. You can’t see it very well, but it has a lovely subtle shimmer. I think it will make a gorgeous lacy cowl.
Now I really need to focus and get back to work. This author’s book isn’t going to proofread itself!
Glad you are so happy with your bags 🙂
Wonder woman isn’t exactly my cup of tea, but I would definitely travel for bags featuring Rohrschach of Watchmen *evil laughter*
How did the yarn smuggle into your home? 😉
Easy! I’m the only one home during the day (except for the puppies and I buy their silence). 😀
Wonder Woman Wonderful ! You had to get the yarn…
1. It was on sale
2. Wonder Woman needed it 😉
Happy weekend !
Yes, you understand! Thanks! 🙂
Oooooh I have to go to Walgreens now! My dance class is doing a jazz number that is Superman/Wonderwoman themed and I need one of those to be my backstage makeup bag!
Yes, and go quickly! You can look on the Walgreens website to see which stores have them, but it’s not terribly accurate. Good luck!
Glad you found your bags! I was so happy when I commissioned a couple for project bags a while ago (I like to pretend I’m posh), it’s so good to have the images you love next to you when knitting.
About the yarn: the dark one looks grey, is it grey? If so, would you call it a “proper” grey, or with purple undertones? I ask because I’m on this quest to dye the perfect grey but I’ve noticed they tend to be purplish…
Nope, it’s brown! What would the perfect grey be? I love all grey tones!
Ah, ok! 😀
The perfect grey would be… well, grey! You would look and only see that colour, instead of others underneath, striking. Does this make sense? No purples. No greens. Just plain beautiful grey…
a bag with a cape…LOVE IT!
Awesome bags, the one with the cape is inspired! I often don’t know how I end up with new yarn either…it just seems to happen
LOL. It can sense a weak knitter, I think, and sends out signals.
Haha, it totally does! I have no willpower when it comes to yarn…
I love the new bags and your new yarns are stunning.
