A knitter's conscience...

After a lull in posting I'm all geared up to post some pics
and it's just not a happening thing! Frustration of the nation!

I've been working on multiple projects and trying to find
my knitting mojo again. I am trying to expand beyond bags
which I have a endless fascination with. I am just
immediately drawn to bags. I picked up a book by Emma King
which has lots of knitted accessories and started on a bag - this one
is UNfelted (only my second ever non felted bag) - I'm stepping right
outside my comfort zone but as you can see I'm determined to
stretch myself.

I've had another thought too... I would really like to make every single
pattern in one book. Haha I know what you're thinking - easy just buy
a single pattern book and wolah! mission accomplished. No that would
be cheating....I mean like Stitch'n'bitch Nation or something. I wouldn't
restrict myelf to a time frame - just in my life time!! Is there anyone
out there who thinks like this or seeks to challenge themselve in the same way?
Or am I completely alone?

knit your way though a whole book? I think it is a great idea (but not a whole book of bags!!) I've thought about knitting my way through the Knitter's Almanac, but I'm not sure what I could do with the knitted long johns (Wait! I could give them to mum for the studio!!)
