A Month of Knitting Selfishly

DSC_0771I took the day off yesterday to chill out and bask in the post-weekend glow. While I did have a few errands to run, mostly it was a very selfish day.

There are several movies on my must-see list and I saw one of them yesterday. There is something about going out to see a movie when you're supposed to be at work that feels very satisfying in a naughty and indulgent way. Slumdog Millionaire was great and I would recommend it to all of you. Everything about this movie worked for me and there really isn't anything that I would change about it.

Of course I also did a bit of knitting. I finished a hat for my niece and immediately cast on for Loppem (Rav Link) for me. Thus begins a month of selfish knitting. This doesn't mean that I won't knit for anyone else during February but it does mean that I will put myself first. I'd love to try to make some of the things that have been in my queue for a while. I see gloves, mittens, a hat and at least one sweater in my immediate future.

There's nothing wrong with having some time for yourself. Enjoy your selfish knitting!

Good For You!
I always take the Monday after a big competition weekend off so I can regroup at home without stressing out and having people underfoot. Its a great plan as long as we aren't competing more than I have vacation days *shudders at the thought*
