I have also started a pair of fingerless mitts for myself, and when they are done I will finish spinning some more yarn and make yet another pair for moi. I knit for others so much and for deadlines but you know what? I need to knit for me too.
So who cares if I am a little selfish? They are small quick satisfying projects and I enjoy them.
How often do you actually knit for yourself??!! Hmmm???
