I'm a gift knitter. I like to make things people want, and that means I'll spend days knitting kneesocks if that's what someone wants.

How is it possible I didn't blog about these? I did them back in 2009! The only mention of them seems to be here. Note to self: Get better about blogging gift knitting once the recipient has received. My favorite part of these socks is that I made the skeletons on the Life sock flip off the skeletons on the Death sock. We may all have to die, but we don't have to embrace it.
Anyway, I like knitting for people. I also like knitting for myself. Right now, I'm nearing the end of a big gift knitting project, and I'm trying to figure out if I want to make a present I need for November or if I want to start a sweater for myself.

On the second hand,
Wait, there is no second hand.
Yay, sweater! I'm thinking this, but with cap sleeves.
