Attempting to get back into some posting I thought I'd share some plans with you.  Due to an attention grabbing little monkey I've decided not to set the bar to high and have only set myself three goals to complete by Christmas.

1. Sew a bag for my sister-in-law for Christmas
I should have done this for her birthday but life was a little too hectic at that time so I failed to get around to it.  The theory is this will be a shoulder style bag in black with purple accents/lining.

2. Learn to knit something that isn't a rectangle/square
The long term goal for this is to knit myself a lush chunky knit cardigan but I've got to learn how to do this whole increase/decrease thing first.  I have managed to figure out cables though, they are a heck of a lot easier than I expected.  For this I will probably end up knitting a cardigan for Melody (hopefully) since it will be small and I found a pattern that looks relatively easy via Ravelry - Easy Baby Cardigan

3. Sew something for myself
Not entirely sure what this is going to be yet but I am toying with the idea of a pair of jean/trousers inspired by Lladybird although instead of Thurlow I will use Butterick 5682 from which I made these trousers.  Another idea I am toying with is a handbag for myself using the purse frame I treated myself to for my birthday (back in May!!) from U-handbag
Wish me luck :)
