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?
I’ve been thinking about this and looking through my Ravelry projects to see what kind of knitter I am. I’m not convinced I am seasonal, but then I haven’t been knitting for very long, so maybe I just don’;t show it yet. I find myself talking quick and easy projects as a rule, such as socks, Hexipuffs , scarves etc… mostly because my time is at a premium and anything large takes a long, long time. I certainly love being able to snuggle under a blanket in those winter months as I make it, but lets face it, this is England, ‘those winter months are pretty much 11 months of the year.
