The new year seems like a time when knitting needles are particularly busy. It could be the cold weather, frantically trying to finish off gifts, or in my case, gleefully working on those projects I’ve been dreaming about for weeks, usually knits for me. It might commonly referred to as ‘selfish knitting’ but I prefer to think of it gift knitting for myself, or Maud-Bailey (from one of the projects below) calls it ‘gifts for winter.’ Knitting something for yourself isn’t selfish, its awesome! The projects this week were all cast on just after or on the holidays, and were made for the very person doing the making!
It’s great to see people making Knitworthy patterns for themselves! This lovely Saudade was made for and knit by bevans59 with Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails. It’s the perfect project for little amounts of yarn.
Congratulations to our Glenmore KAL prize winners! If you're still working on your Glenmore this blog series will stay up, so you can refer back to the tutorial for any section as you knit at your own pace. For inspiration and motivation check out all the lovely Glenmore projects here.
