Does knitting have seasons?
I know that all of the magazines have Winter, Spring, Summer & Fall issues and therefore have to create themes to differentiate these issues – but is seasonality a real “thing” for the knitter? I pretty much knit what I want when I want to and the whole seasonality thing confuses me.
Of course, I don’t want a lap full of pounds and pounds of afghan in the middle of the Summer, but if I want a sweater by Fall then I better get to knitting. What is the point of beginning a sweater in the Fall/Winter, is it for next year?
As far as my knitting goes, it is always time for lace. I love knitting lace and cannot see stopping it for the Winter because it isn’t the right season. So, here is the discussion I hope to start, and I welcome any and all thoughts on the subject – please respond in the comments or check out this thread in my Ravelry Group.
The question is, does the season affect your knitting choices? If so, please explain how/why/etc … A secondary question would be: What kind of projects would you want to see for this Spring?
ps: I totally just googled effect vs affect to make sure I used it right. Isn’t that special?
pps: Happy New Year!
