Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Seasonal Knitting {3KCBWDAY4}

Seasonal Knitting {3KCBWDAY4}

I enjoy knitting.  To me, it's relaxing for the most part.  A time that I can sip tea and listen to Celtic music.  Which is why I often knit at night, after Charis has gone to bed.

The only thing I notice is that during the summer, I try to knit simpler projects-ones that I'm able to pick up easily and put down and forget about them.  Usually the closer we come to Christmas, I'm furiously knitting, and then take a mini break in January because it seemed that all I did the weeks leading up to Christmas was knit gifts for family.  At this point in my life, I not stop knitting as summer approaches, but I will admit, it helps a lot that we have air conditioning and that we do not have a yard that we have to maintain.  If we had a yard, I'd be outside gardening during the spring and summer and would be knitting during the fall and winter.

I don't knit with different fibers when the season changes.  I knit with wool year round.  I HATE the feel of acrylic, and dislike knitting with cotton because it's not as forgiving as wool.

Do you notice a change in crocheting or knitting as warmer weather comes?
If so, what do you do?
