...I have cast on a bag for February. It is a chunky cable and moss stitch bag by Debbie Bliss from her 'Home' book. I am using Debbie Bliss SoHo which I bought in the sale after Christmas but unfortunately I have ran out and still have 1 and a bit handles to do. It is so frustrating but I think it is probably my fault for knitting a bit too loosely. Anyway, here are some photos:

Reasons to love January #2 & 3

Yes, I know it's February! Reasons 2 and 3 are now 1 year older. My gorgeous girl is 3 and my beautiful boy is 1!

Needless to say, January has been slightly busy and always will be! We have wrapped and unwrapped rather a lot of presents; put up and taken down rather a lot of cards and made and eaten quite a few cakes. I've also squeezed in working 2 and a half days a week and a fair bit of knitting (although not as much of the latter as I'd've liked).

I now need to get on with thinking about my February bag for my Knit a Bag a Month project. My Debbie Bliss SoHo is still waiting patiently to be transformed into a wonderful bag and my poor pink and red cotton bag remains squashed at the bottom of my knitting basket. I really must finish that this year.

Another idea for a bag is a laptop cosy as I now have my own brand new laptop from school! I will get thinking and hopefully make a decision soon.

The only other knitting news I have is that I have started a draught excluder! Boring to knit but very much needed as we have a large draughty window on the side of our house.
