Is It Cheating??

The Ohhh Bag Me September project has been announced. Participants are to knit and then felt a bag that has colourwork in it. Is it cheating to use this as an incentive to finish something I started about 12 months ago???? This is what I started:

The Weekend Getaway Satchel from Interweave Knits, reminiscent of Mary Poppins I think. Hope to have it finished by the end of September.

Not much has been happening on the Twisted Float Shrug due to a yucky head cold that makes me want to do…nothing! Although today I am feeling much better and it is a rainy day…the type that’s good for sitting inside with a warm drink, a soapie on the TV and your knitting!
