Now that in some geographic locations the weather is starting to turn cooler, do you change the type of yarn(s) you knit/crochet with? If so, what do you now knit/crochet with instead and why? If not, why do you not switch and what do you knit/crochet with?
You must understand being in WI, we can go from 80° one day and 50° the next in any given month. What I do change is projects vs yarns. I wouldn't want to knit a sweater in July, but would knit socks. I tend to do a lot of socks during the summer months and sweaters/scarves in the fall and winter months.
Speaking of yarn, how about a little Yarn P0rn?
I finally made my first purchase of yarn in almost a year!! Yes... a WHOLE YEAR! I bought Ambrosia in Wine from Knit Picks for a scarf that is going to be a gift for Christmas. I am really excited because I get to add a beaded fringe to the end of it.
The 2nd stack of yarn is Andean Silk in Barn Red by Knit Picks. I love the feel of the yarn, but can't stand the color! It is for the Clapotis for another friend for Christmas. I am bit behind on the Clapotis craze, but at least I got the itch. In the very near future I am going to surprise Mr. P for lunch and stop at a LYS that I have never been to. I know I should find the "perfect" yarn there.
I also splurged on this little stand for helping me follow along on my projects. It is a must have!!!!! I just hope the kids don't walk away with my magnets when I am not looking. I am sure "Not Me" is going to find them when I need them most.
I am sure going to add their new Harmony Needles to my Christmas wish list! The colors of them are just COOL!
