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?
My, what a great question. Living in Georgia most my life, I kinda experienced four seasons. KIND of. Georgia has Spring, Summer, Dog days of Summer, Fall, and normally a mild winter, meaning, snow that lasts more than a day is rarely seen. Then, I moved to Fort Knox, Kentucky, where I experienced the most snow I've ever seen in my life. A whole week, nothing but snow and ice. It was amazing. Now, we're living in
It snowed here twice, last year. I was impressed. So, while it was only a few days I needed my wooly things, it doesn't mean I won't stop making them.
Truth be told, I find myself wanting to knit socks and sweaters and crochet blankets. Warm things. I mean, what can you knit or crochet that won't make you sweat in the desert? Lace cardigans, I suppose. But, this is why I have friends and family in cold places to where I can still knit and crochet these goods. Plus, I've gotta go back to Georgia sometime...
So, to make a long story short, no I don't craft for the seasons. I knit/crochet what I want, when I want.
