Day 4 - 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?
Well first off, I don’t really make things for the home. Sure I see the garlands and the pillows and think they are adorable, just doesn’t work for me. I’ve made a couple dishcloths and a couple afghans, that’s about it.
So what do I make? I make a lot of accessories. Scarves, fingerless gloves, hats….hats are my favorite thing to make and wear and I wear hats all the time…check out some of these:
So I will make a hat and wear a hat any time of the year.
Now the other thing that I make in warm weather are amiguramis….oh I love making these!
