It's mid-November and I should be hip-deep in Christmas knitting...

And I'm not.
This is not good.
So far, I've started a hat.
Discouraging, to say the least.
I have three shawls in progress - all for me.
I have a couple of sweaters in progress - once again, for me.
For years I knit for others - spouse and children and siblings and parents - and I never ended up with anything for myself.

I think there's been some form of backlash...

I don't see anything problematic about this.

Make baked or preserved gifts this year. Still handmade.

Good for you!

I think this stuff goes in cycles. And you should just go with it. Knit what you want. Gift what you want. The two don'talways come from the same pot.
