3KCBWDAY4 - Season crafting

Hello :0)
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?
Hmm.. this is another thing I hadn't really thought about before!
Up until recently my crafting I suppose has unconsciously kind of changed to fit with the season, like I made my Domo hat when the weather was kind of cold :) Now I suppose I do think about the seasons a little bit more for example I started making my bolero in preparation for the weather which  I thought was improving but it won't stop raining at the moment! Lots of the time however I just come up with a design idea and then get excited about it and start making it whatever the weather/season and whatever it is, I get cold easily anyway when most people are wearing shorts I'm usually still wearing a scarf and gloves, lol! :D
Like many crafters I have the usual seasonal/holiday projects for Christmas, Easter, Halloween and valentines day etc... I usually plan what I want to make for these but other than that I don't really plan projects in advance for certain seasons I mainly just go with the flow, when I want to make something I just make it. If it isn't that suitable at the time I just save it and use/wear it another time :)
UK weather is pretty unpredictable really so it is kind of hard to plan for example you expect summer to be warm but sometimes most days can be dreary so you can make something to wear in summer and not end up wearing till mid September!
Hehehe, I am really enjoying this knitting and crochet blogging-filled week! :D
See you all tomorrow for 'something a bit different'..... lol!


  1. This was quite a tricky topic wasn't it! As I don't crochet/knit clothing (yet!) I'm not sure I'll have any to blog about today...maybe seasonal ami's...Looking forward to your 'something a bit different' tomorrow!!

  2. Chaucer's Aunty: Yes it was! Hehehe, I don't really make that mauch clothing yet either, Im gradually increasing the amount though :) I can't wait to see what you have planned either! :D xxx
