my bland and mostly dull life with knitting thrown in for interest

rusty & green

Bison scarf down....now in the mean time....I'm awaiting the arrival of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece to knit 2 Zephyr Designs patterns: Rusted Root & Green Gable. I got the yarn in Grey Dawn & Cavern (both are mid to dark grays to black) and will choose which one for which sweater when they arrive. Oh, I cant' wait til' the yarn comes!

In the mean, mean, time, I think maybe another hat or two from yarn in my stash. I have pretty much determined I am not knitting gifts this year, too. It's already November and I haven't started a thing for anyone...plus, I like too many patterns for myself. Who said that a knitter has to generously make things for OTHER people? Why am I feeling slight pangs of selfishness? This is my time and effort here, right? Why am I still feeling greedy? I'm going to stop now...well...in another minute...okay...nope! I need to get to knitting group for some therapy! Monday can't come soon enough girls!

oh - just go knit something and RELAX!

Don't feel guilty! You should knit only for those who appreciate your knitting and who will appreciate it more than yourself?

We should start a group of Ravelry. The "NO! I'm not knitting for you" group. I'd join. I'm not making anyone a damn thing for the holidays.
