It’s Officially International

Lynne in Oz (Australia) and Lisa in Toronto, Canada have spoken up to be part of the upcoming “Selfish Knitting Month.” This means that it is now *International* Selfish Knitting Month.

They are not bulkycablescarfdeepa.jpgthe only ones who have piped up to say they want to be part of this, but the only who have identified themselves as outside the US (which is where I live). I like how international the internet is, that delights me to have us connected through the ether when we can’t be in one another’s physical presence.

There are no rules other than you knit for yourself during the month of January. I would hope you would knit more for yourself than others in January, maybe (ideally) *only* for yourself.

The good news is that there are no selfish-knitting Police, so you decide for yourself how it goes. It’s about NOT feeling pressure or stress. It’s about being good to ourselves and being clear that we choose to do so.

Please consider joining us!

The photo is a bulky cable scarf one of my “Knitting Study Hall” students knit for herself recently. She had never done cables so wanted to try them. She made this in less than 2 weeks. Nice job, don’t you think? She loves it, and it’s very warm just when we need it. Today I saw one sign say it was 1 degree F. I think it was more like 4F (-15.5C) but who is quibbling? Either number is just plain cooooold!

    You know, I was going to give this a miss. My nieces and nephews are of an age to really appreciate my knitting, and I have a loooong list of things to knit for family…. but last night I cast on for a graceful shawl (pattern on Ravelry) with Noro Kujaku you gave me… and it’s for ME! So I’m starting my selfish knitting earlier, and will work on the other stuff too.
