Knit for Myself

Please someone hit me with the stick that lets me feel not so guilty for wanting to make stuff for myself.

My WIPs right now include a Brea Bag (so close!) that has no home. A SOTM that is technically for me once the blanket is finished but that doesn't count right now. A pair of socks for my Dad. A pair of legwarmers for my Mom. (SO SLOW WTF WITH THE TINY NEEDLES). Part of the problem with them is that I really want to get a different color for the main body of the legwarmer and that means I need to order it because I don't think that any of my local stores caries it. I'm of course, also currently asking my TSR group if they know where I can get it. I'm also making a condom cozy from a friend's pattern to put in a prize pack for my SG camping trip this year.

But I want to make a stole. For me. Because I love them, and I don't have one. But there are so many patterns, and I have several choices of yarn available to me. (did i mention that I also bought yarn to make one for my mom too, it's the Tucson Lattice Shawl by Nancy Miller from 101 Designer One Skein Wonders)

Here are my choices. The Forest Path Stole by Faina M. Letoutchaia, the Luna Moth Shawl by Shui Kuen Kozinski, the Voyager Lace Stole by Shui Kuen Kozinski and Benne Ferrell, the Optic Waves Shawl by Shelia January,the Butterfly Mobius by Clara Parkes , the Zetor Scarf by Jatta Saukko.

There are more, I'm going to stop listing them now. I need help!
