Selifish Knitting

Look at this! I started a sweater for me. I am powering through this thing and loving it so much.

Blue-ish Sahara

The pattern is Sahara. I've wanted to knit it for a while but the moment was never quite right. I originally planned to knit this with the Deep Purple Silky Wool but I cast it on, knit a few rows and decided that there was no way that would work. What is it about that yarn? I think it may be cursed. I tried Tilia and that didn't work, now this.

I'm so happy that I found the perfect yarn in my stash. This is Cotton Fleece in New Age Teal. I'm getting gauge and the fabric is lovely. I had chosen Tilli Tomas Disco Lights in Natural for the accent and I think it'll work well with this yarn too.

This isn't all I have on my needles today but it's all I can share. That's a pity because I'm really happy with the current sock in progress. It's a test knit for Sock Madness 2.

Can not wait to see the Tilli Tomas Disco Lights knit up - - I have so many ideas floating in my head seeing that!

I'm so jealous! Well, I guess if I wanted it that bad, I would have cast on too. I love your colors, this is going to be knockout!

Good for you, knitting for yourself - and such a good choice.
