Lots of people look towards the new year & make resolutions. I will do this too, but I’m already thinking about my knitting resolutions and have found some patterns & yarn that I want to make next year. Like most knitters, I have a wool stash, and none of the patterns I want to make will use up any of that wool. What?! It’ll come in handy for other projects! So here’s a quick round up of the projects & yarn I’m going to attempt next year.
Now I know what you’re thinking, that’s not much. No, it’s not. This is just for starters. Plus, I’m going to try & not overload myself with patterns too early in the year! And I want to try and expand the range I sell in my Folksy shop. I have to admit it’s been a little neglected of late so my aim next year is to add to it regularly and promote it much more. So I think three patterns is enough for now! I’ve asked Father Christmas for the yarn for the two jumpers but only found the Snow Mittens since then. You know I’ll keep you posted on my progress – wish me luck!
Anyone else starting to think about Christmas? Yep, me too. I’m trying to think about what I need and am starting to look to see what’s out there. So over the coming weeks I’ll be posting a few wishlists that focus on things that I need from Santa.
One thing I do need is a new bag. One that I can take my laptop, notebook, pencil case & other handbag junk in. But I don’t want just any bag. I want something a bit different, unique, smart but cool. So here’s a small wish list of a few bags that are out there. Something that suits both work & casual trips to town. So, have a look at these beautiful bags. Which would you pick?

Now this is a true wish list (Don’t worry, family members, I won’t expect all of these!). But how great are these bags. I really like the satchel style ones. They’re in style but quirky too. I think my favourite is the Dr. Martens flower Liberty print satchel. It’s bright, perfect for these dark winter days, & really cool. But then, when aren’t Dr. Martens products really cool?!
What do you think? Which one do you like the best? Have you started compiling a wish list? If so, why not leave a link in the comments section below. Why not start here, in the Liberty Bags section?
I am working with Liberty and this is a collaborative post.
