I finished all of my Christmas knitting yesterday and now have this feeling of a large burden released from my chest. It's so freeing to be able to knit for myself. I usually buckle down around October and feverishly knit for others for the months up to Christmas. I have a sweater in progress that I can now work on guilt free. Visions of projects to cast on are swirling in my head. The possibilities are endless and I almost feel buoyant!
I love knitting handmade gifts for friends and loved ones during the season, but being able to knit selfishly is simply lovely. :)
