A Knitter or Crocheter For All Seasons?
As spring is in the air in the northern hemisphere and those in the southern hemisphere start setting their sights for the arrival of winter, a lot of crocheters and knitters find that their crafting changes along with their wardrobe. Have a look through your finished projects and explain the seasonality of your craft to your readers. Do you make warm woollens the whole year through in preparation for the colder months, or do you live somewhere that never feels the chill and so invest your time in beautiful homewares and delicate lace items. How does your local seasonal weather affect your craft?
The seasons have no effect whatsoever on my knitting. I knit nearly every free minute I get. That’s not a joke. Quit laughing!!! I knit lots of different things and I knit them whenever I get the fancy to. I don’t really find my projects change all that much according to the temp. Perhaps, I do a few more lightweight shawls in the summer in my free time. Though, I generally take the summer to plan out/work on Fall and Winter designs though. It’s a good thing we have central air, I guess (yes, it gets hot in North Dakota). So, it’s not unusual to see me plugging away on a bulky wool item in the middle of the summer.
Now, I will leave you with a bit of eye candy. Look at this skein of yarn. It is the brightest pink EVER. It is fantastic! The colorway is, “Before you Go Go” in Plucky Feet by The Plucky Knitter.
