At the start of this year, I made a new years resolution. I was going to knit for myself this year and finish a bulk of UFO’s that have been sitting in my pile of knitting. I moved to a new house in May, a friend got engaged, other friends had babies, and then it was time for Christmas… Looking back at the list, I didn’t get very far.

Whoops! Someone once said that January is selfish knitting month. I like that idea and I may have started a little bit early, since my Christmas present knitting is done. There is one “post Christmas present” that needs to be knit but as far as the rest of the knitting… it’s done.
I have been working on the Breakfast at Tiffany’s sweater on and off since Stitches Midwest in August. I finished the back a few weeks ago when I was taking a break from the Snow on the Swingset socks. I originally wanted to have it done before Christmas as the colors are green and blue in the sweater.
Needless to say, that isn’t going to happen. The November Rockin’ Sock Club shipment came in the mail and last week after I finished the Snow on the Swingset socks… I caved and cast on the Canopy Socks in the colorway “the skein with no name”.
Aren’t they amazing? I’m in love with the colors in this yarn. Don’t get me wrong, I love all of the yarns from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. This is by far my favorite that I’ve ever received. I’m enjoying knitting for myself while working on these socks… so who knows…
Maybe next year will be the year I knit for myself.
