i am this bored

I just signed up for a sewing class. It's a two-part class beginning in September. I'm kinda excited.

I'll be learning how to make a pair of pajama pants. Hopefully, in the process, I'll learn how to use a sewing machine without sewing my fingers together. With my luck lately, I'll do it too.

But I totally think it'd be fun to try to make some clothes for myself or at the very least be able to do some simple alterations and not have to pay someone to hem my jeans!

I've been knitting for a few years now, but only bags, shawls and blankets. I'd much rather buy a sweater then make one myself - yarn can be soooo expensive. Not to mention, a lot of the patterns out there are so dowdy and out-dated. Do I really want to make a something where someone always asks "Did you make that?" The answer is no. I have to admit though, that I am really tempted to knit this little sweater vest by SweaterBabe. I think the shape of it is cute and au courant.

Seems like lofty goals for my Fall season! We'll see how it goes.

UPDATE: This is the last thing I knitted. It's a baby blanket that I made for my bestie and her new baby.
