I’ve been indulging in a little bit of selfish knitting. I finally started a sock yarn blanket! A lot of fellow knitters keep all the bits of leftover yarn. No yarn shall go to waste! I have been saving and saving… and saving leftover yarn. Here and there I’ll knit a teeny stuffed animal out of the leftovers. They come out so cute I just wanna *boop!* their little noses!!
Yes, I'll be that creepy old lady some day with a hundred knit stuffed animals all around the house... whose eyes all follow you. *shudder* Anyhoo, some colors won’t really work for a critter and I’ve wanted to cast on this blanket for a while now. So, it’s in the works.
The blanket is knit in simple little blocks that I can sneak in between knitting out my new designs. It’s a guilty pleasure. I know I should be working on my designs so I can get the patterns published. But sometimes you just have to be bad and do what you want! When I’m working on the squares, it feels like I’m tip-toeing into the kitchen to sneak a cookie from the cookie jar. (this actually means shove my face full of Mini Cadbury Eggs) I usually have a good craft beer (I love me a good IPA) or a glass of wine with it too. Feels good doesn’t it?
Indulge sometimes knitters. It’s ok, I won’t tell.
