How many projects have you knit this past year? How many of them were gifts and how many were for yourself? Many of us spend a lot of time knitting gifts for our loved ones. We love to see their happy faces when receiving our projects. But as we exit the season of giving, it’s nice to enjoy a little “me time” and treat ourselves to projects just for ourselves. It’s a great way to reconnect with the joy of knitting for the sake of it.
That’s why I like to think of January as “Selfish Knitting Month.” It’s a reminder that you deserve a little something for your own enjoyment!
With that in mind, here are five patterns for inspiration:
I can’t believe we are almost finished with our 9th knit along, the Hudson Valley Cardi KAL! I am floored that over 540 knitters have participated. It thrills me to see all of your amazing projects! I hope you’ve enjoyed yourselves and picked up some new skills along the way. Prizes will be awarded any day, so make sure those project pages are set up!
Though the KAL is almost over, the fun doesn’t have to end. I have plenty of patterns to keep you knitting all the way into fall. Some of these patterns also come with full video instructions, making the process even more informative and engaging for you. I should also remind you that you might want to start thinking about knitting for the holiday season, but there are plenty of smaller items to think about for that!
