Lately I have noticed that I underestimate my knitting skill. Often when looking at patterns I will fav them on Ravelry but not because I want to knit them but because they look awesome and I will probably never knit them. Also it seems when i knit for others I will knit more complicated things. For some reason when I knit for myself I just don't think I am capable of knitting something that takes a lot of different techniques. This is coming from the girl who's first thing she knitted was a sock. I have knit a sock since them because I fear I can't knit the socks with gorgeous details. A plain sock bring it on but ....not a Cookie A sock OMG. Now that I recognize what i am doing to myself I need to stop it. Only after i finish knitting my plan ole garter stitch scarf.
By the way i have been on a yarn buying spree. I budget out my paycheck so I can fit in a nice yarn buy every two weeks. I have bought two Plucky Knitter yarns, Yarn from Eat Sleep Knit, and others that i just can't remember right now. I'll update with my yarn buys once i remember to take some photos!
