Day 4 of The Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week deals with knitting for the season….So, how well do I adhere to the seasons for my knitting projects?
Ummm…not at all!
It’s spring here in Delaware, and in a couple of months, the summer will be arriving. I, for one, am SO looking forward to the sun baking my arms this year. We didn’t have any snow this past winter. But it was still SO cold! Wait a minute….I’m always cold.
Delaware is known for its humidity. So when it’s hot, it feels really hot! But this is about how much it will change my knits.
Not a bit. We’re just trying to get up to the pinky on this and then start the decreases and finish the thumb. These won’t even get to be worn until the end of the year for the weather. But we just want to see what they look like right now!!
I had to knit with the smaller needles for the handspun and the larger for the Brown Sheep yarn. It’s a little backwards. But it’ll work out.
I’m hoping that little ball lasts until the end. We shall see…If it doesn’t though, I can always rip out and use it as the accents and the yellow as the main color. But I’m really pulling for it to work out! If you notice, I took out what I had started yesterday to start from the center pull of the ball (it made a lot more sense than knitting from the outside end of the ball and letting it flop all over the place). Besides, this end is this beautiful blue that extends a bit and I just wanted to make sure it got used in a large section. It’s such a pretty color!
Honestly, it doesn’t matter if it’s wool, cotton, rayon, or if it’s winter, spring, or fall…whatever. We girls just like to play with yarn! 🙂
