It’s always interesting this time of year — with the sun getting brighter and the days longer — to see blog traffic dipping a little bit as some people’s attention turns elsewhere. I am so spoiled (in this regard) by living in a place where it’s never truly summer that I forget knitting is seasonal for some people. It’s impossible for me to imagine putting knitting out of my mind for even a week, let alone a few months. But then I remember one day where it really was blazing hot (by our standards), and my palms were sweating and I thought the idea of handling wool sounded positively ghastly. So I glimpsed it for a moment, but I also have this idea that people in hot climates have air conditioning (also foreign to me), so does it matter whether it’s hot outside? This may sound really ignorant, but it’s weird and hard, living in a place with no weather, to remember what it’s like elsewhere. So this is my Q for You: Do you knit/crochet all year? If you do, do you work differently, with different fibers? If not, do you switch hobbies to something else? Or are you a person who spends all summer cranking away at your woolly holiday gifts?
