Knitted Bag

This is what I have been knitting this weekend. Just starting to finish the bottom. I think I will line it as well. That will help give it more stability. This has been such a compelling knit that I haven't been able to work on anything else. I need to get on to some other things soon, but this has sure been fun. I got the pattern from some mittens-by

Plus, you'll never guess what I am reading? No?? Watership Down by Richard Adams. Now I know I must have read this when it first came out but I can't seem to remember it AT ALL.
I am enjoying it in small doses-a chapter or two at a time in between knitting the bag. So far, wonderful/ I suppose you all have read it, hmm? Tell me about it, when did you read it and where were you at the time?

The moon sailed free of the cloud and lit the heather . . .
Fiver was looking far out beyond the edge of the common.
Four miles away, along the southern skyline, rose the seven-
hundred-and-fifty-foot ridge of the downs . . . "Look!" said Fiver
suddenly. "That's the place for us, Hazel. High, lonely hills,
where the wind and the sound carry and the ground's
as dry as straw in a barn. That's where we ought to be.
That's where we have to get to."

Talk to you later,
I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That's deep enough. What do you want, an adorable pancreas?

I love Watership Down! I read it when I was in my early 20's, when the twins were small. Then I read it aloud to Clay when he was 8 or so. One more time a few years ago. Such vivid images in my mind.
Gotta go, I am hungry, gotaa get some flayrah!
