Help name a new bag

There is a new bag coming from Namaste. I don't know the details yet but I do know that you can win one. Head over to Namaste's Facebook page and name the new bag.
There is a new yarn from Sirdar in the store.

We have created this fabulous cotton double knitting yarn for hand knit and crochet projects – it can be used to create designs for all the family from babies to adults and looks equally gorgeous in projects for the home. The yarn is made using mercerised cotton to create a subtle sheen and incredible stitch definition so it’s the perfect yarn for lace knitting, cables and crochet work. This Cotton DK is a classic double knitting yarn that will knit to all Sirdar’s DK designs and is machine washable.
We have 11 colours in stock.

There are many great patterns including

Canada Post should be delivering a box from Zen Yarn Garden tomorrow. There is a brand new yarn coming
Beautifully hand dyed with a touch of glimmer, Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Glitter Sock is a gorgeous blend of merino wool, luxurious cashmere and nylon for strength. Not just for socks, Serenity Glitter sock would make unforgettable shawls, scarves and accessories. 
I can't wait - the colours are awesome!

A parcel is going out to Lynda tomorrow. She is going to knit Song of the Sea (pattern purchased on Ravelry) in Metalico from Blue Sky Alpacas.
Two standard sizes are given in the pattern. The snug cowl would fit neatly inside your coat collar. You can wear the long cowl singly to look decorative and drapy, or twist it up double to be cosy.
Knitted in the round, it is an easy piece for an intermediate lace knitter since there are no fancy stitches. It is more about the fun of watching the developing pattern unfold.
A novice lace knitter with experience of knitting in the round on other projects would also find this a straightforward first lace project.
Take a look at Louise's finished cowl on Ravelry...
My first sleeve is done and I've cast on for the front. The ribbing is done and now it's time to power knit.
