Selfish September Day 15

Fifteen more days.

Don't like it? Can't bear to read it? Then please don't.

Not that I need to explain further, this being my blog and all, but I have set aside moments this month to knit for myself. Not to the exclusion of other knitting, but merely for the purpose of accomplishing a sweater or two that I can wear to warm my bod.

I have partners in crime. I am not alone.

We are strapping on our air masks before assisting the child in the seat next to us.

Good for you!
I really need to follow your example. I have a Samus sweater started last winter that I would love to be able to wear this year. But I keep putting it off in favor of knitting for others - anybody - instead of myself. Even if I devoted one day a week on this, it would make a huge difference. Maybe we should remember that the saying is, "Love thy neighbor as thyself" not "MORE THAN thyself." ;o)
You're actually supposed to strap your mask on first.....but I suppose that's a literary device? lol.

Yay for Selfish Knitting! I tend to practice it almost exclusively but you do need a balance of both.

Now enjoy your selfish knitting and do not defend it.
