Selfish Project Month

Share Button

The holidays are now a distant memory, and while some of the more organized and enterprising members of our crafting community have already started planning, and possibly even working on projects for the end of this year, many of us just want to take a little time to focus on ourselves. I am included in that second group. I didn’t make nearly as many projects as I was planning for gifts, but as I was working on them, all I could think of was projects I wanted for myself – legwarmers, mittens, hats. (It has been really cold!)

Since February also happens to feature Valentine’s Day, we thought it might be nice to show ourselves a little love and focus on selfish knitting and crocheting. In the next month, we’ll feature patterns and ideas that you can make for yourself (or someone else if you really wanted to).

You’ll also want to keep an eye out here and our other social media sites next week because we’re going to be doing something special.

Are you planning on knitting or crocheting for yourself?

    After Christmas, for me, is Selfish Knitting Season. (I don’t limit myself to a month – let alone the shortest one!) I finished the final Christmas gift in early January, and since then I’ve knit myself a pair of socks and a scarf, and I’m halfway through a hat and a second sock. With plans for two sweaters and two skirts – I’m not ambitious! I’ll start my gift knitting in the spring. (Last year I started in late September, and making everything for my huge family was a challenge. This year shall be better!)

    I will finish a sugar cane yarn sweater for myself and then start using my stash for gifts – love the idea of selfish knitting month! :)

    I plan to knit myself a sweater this month, starting tomorrow night, also as an entry in the Ravellenic Winter Games 2014, Sweater Cross event!

    I’m actually knitting a vest with Imperial yarn during the Olympics. I thought it would be cool to make something for me out of the yarn that the American team is wearing.. I already started it and I love, love, love the yarn!!!!

    I started a shawl on Monday night for me with some sparkly yarn I got at the CGOA Conference in Reno. I have a wedding on Valentines day and it matches the new statement necklace I bought to accessorize my LBD,

    I’m making Interweave’s Downton Abbey sweater with Northfield, and it’s going to be beautiful. Love that yarn.

    For many reasons, I’m focusing on my interests, my confidence, learning new fiber skills and relearning old ones, and better health in 2014. I find that getting back to weaving and knitting after many years away is a great help in all these goals. Rather than a specific item or project, I’m excited about exploring both process and technique. Next up, yoga and tai chi. It feels very selfish, but wonderful!
