Well, I did it. I’m not one to spend money on myself. But after discussing it with my fella, I realized it’s not only okay to do so; it’s IMPORTANT to do so. With last year being as hellish as it was (health-wise), I’ve emerged into a new person. With the collapse of my physical body, I also lost myself. That, perhaps, was the worst part of all of it.
I deserve to make myself a priority.
So I did a little shopping, as this is a goal I really want to work on. Bought several tops and 3 pairs of pants. I am hoping to knit most of or all of my own sweaters, socks, and so on. Making my own garments is going to be a big part of my fashion sense, of expressing who I am – I know this much already. I’ve got all kinds of great projects lined up in my Ravelry library, a lot of time on my hands, and as much yarn as I can handle. Life is good.
