Don’t let winter end: a knitter’s desperate plea
It’s no surprise that knitters love winter: please don’t let winter end!
We all know that knitters love winter. Cold weather means chunky knitwear and piles of blankets to snuggle up in. Winter means frost on the windowpanes and handmade slipper socks, while you clutch your millionth cup of tea, wrapped in a mug cozy.
To knitters, winter is a bit like this:
For those of us who aren’t big sock or shawl knitters, the end of winter can mean making a hard choice as the thermometer rises:
A: Continue knitting sweaters and blankets and deal with the heat, or
B: Take a break from knitting.
That means many of us feel like this as the last snowflakes start to melt…
And then flowers start to push through the barely unfrozen ground, and the panic sets in.
April showers bring May flowers.
Soon, people will be heading to the beach with their sunblock and a book, but not with their knitting.
Hot, sticky summers are not the best for knitting delicious super chunky blankets, fellow knitters.
We’re counting down the days until autumn.
I just want to knit with some wool, is that too much to ask?
And after all…
Don’t let winter end – let me keep knitting with fluffy yarn, making enough sweaters to clothe an army. Please don’t make me be social this summer, I just want to stay home and knit.
