The Story
Knitters, as a collective, tend to be fairly generous folk - always knitting gifts for other people. My social media feeds are full of images of hand-made gifts for other people, especially around the holidays. I think it’s time we knitters take a couple hours for ourselves and knit something that WE can wear.

This lovely little set knits up quickly and looks fabulous. So go ahead, get selfish and shamelessly knit something for yourself! And then take selfies and post them on social media for all to see!
