In which I'm a selfish non-giver...


Lipstick Jungle Cowl
Originally uploaded by wannabeknittin'
So I knit something. Something I love. Something I was going to gift to someone else...but it's not happening. I just can't part with it. I really shouldn't feel bad since I gift more than half of what I knit...but still. Today I feel like the selfish non-giver. I'll get over it.







Details:
Pattern: Gloria Cowl by Orinda5
Yarn: The Plucky Knitter Merino Fingering in Lipstick Jungle (held doubled)
Needles: KP Options size 8 6" circs
Mods: none
Outcome: L-O-V-E.

DO NOT FEEL GUILTY!!! Get over that right now. You deserve that cowl. And it's far to pretty to give away.

I absolutely love how it turned out. I think I may have to use my merino fingering for a cowl for me too.

Enjoy it!!!!

Your open admission of non-giving simply paves the way for the rest of us. I love the cowl! And the colorway! And that you are keeping it all to yourself:)

It's perfect on you! How could you give it away!?!?

First off, that's beautiful. Secondly, I wouldn't feel a bit bad about being a selfish knitter, for me personally, knitting is about the only thing I do just for myself. I've been known to knit a few gifts but generally speaking, it's a way to do something just for me. So just embrace it! And once again, beautiful!!!!!!!
