I'm so not hyena but i do sell what I knit, and I do knit for my own daughter, even though I pretty much always have a list of 3 or 4 orders to do. What I do is during naptime (if such a thing occurs) I knit for myself, my daughter, something I want to experiment with, an auction item, a gift for a friend, etc.
Evenings belong to my list. If i'm feeling behind on the list, I use naptimes to get caught up, but i don't let myself feel guilty for using that time for me, my friends, and my family.
As for reselling, we use our wool pretty hard around here (i only make maya a soaker, pants, or shorts if she outgrows something or wears something out. usually I make clothing or other things for her). It's all looking pretty well used so I don't think it will be worth much. I've just handed usable stuff down to friends.
