A sleeve knitted is a sleeve gained

In which our heroine attempts to justify her selfish nature as it pertains to knitting.

I’ve had a rather busy weekend, which made me feel the need for some simple knitting. This meant I finished one of the sleeves of my owls jumper at long last.

sleevey good!

I think I’ve said before that this has so far been a really pleasurable knit. I’m really looking forward to being able to wear this jumper too—at least two mornings a week I curse my wardrobe for its lack of owls jumpers, which would be so handy and yet so stylish in this continuing terrible weather. Given these two facts I feel like I could have knit this jumper in record time—perhaps as little as two weeks—but alas, there have been more important knitting deadlines to attend to. Still, when you’re as selfish as me, it does you good to knit on projects for yourself every few days. It keeps the impetus up for everything else.

I should say that my secret knitting is rather pattern-heavy, that it’s not just the fact that it’s for someone else that makes me want a break from it now and then. Just so I don’t sound like a completely self-centered whinger. But I am quite proud of it, and I’m looking forward to being able to show it to you. It’s on its way, but it’s comforting to know that so is my owls jumper.

    You’re so cute I just wanna squish your cheeks! and don’t feel selfish about knitting for yourself, not everything you do in life is to make someone else happy- you need to be happy too!
