I tend to make smaller projects in warmer months too. I can't imagine doing an afghan in the summer, even with the A/C on! I also like to use cotton instead of wool.

As we have warm weather for so long here in Australia I do tend to knit all year round but I don't like doing heavy knits.

I also tend to knit with a lot of cotton or blends to make it not so heavy.
Washcloths,bookmarks and such are great for warmer weather.Oh and the adorable little amigurumi toys are good too.
Love them!

i would make small things, like doll clothes, in the summer and larger cover-my-lap projects in the winter.


Yes, I also knit or crochet in warm weather -- preferably smaller projects. :)

I can't knit!! Though I have tried 2-3 times and finished a small bag in a class, I can't seem to knit well enough on my own to finish a project. Perhaps it is due to the warm weather here the whole year round, I tell myself I don't need to knit. But I'll love to knit those cute little projects like knitted small necklace pouches, flowers, etc, if I could master knitting :(


You bet I do. In fact, posted a small photo of the latest project on the blog and couple of days ago ... a scarf ... no pattern, lots of different yarns ... just a fun experiment. Knitting and crocheting keeps me *grounded"!
