Your Knitting Horoscopes for August
Don’t miss your August knitting horoscopes! This month could be the perfect time to get those WIPs out of the way and get ready for the fall. PLUS – find out which knitted toy is your spirit animal!
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
As well as having your birthday this month ( Happy Birthday! 🎉), you will find yourself knitting with a fresh head and fresh hands – you’ll get so much done! It’s great timing and a perfect position for you to begin plotting your fall/winter knits and holiday gifts. Take the time out to dive into some pattern inspiration.
Spirit Animal: Cavendish Cat by Amanda Berry
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Well, August is Virgo-Go-Go for you! Although you hate to think the summer season is coming to an end, you’ll relish the thought of working on your woolly projects once again. Watch out for an over-eagerness to cast on, we don’t want you ending up with more WIPs than weeks until the holidays!
Spirit Animal: Alpaca by Virginia Sturdy
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
This month you will use your level-headedness to prioritise your current projects – which ones do you need to finish first? Which one are you just not that into? Get them finished or frog them back for another time. You’ll thank yourself and have space to take on some exciting, new challenges.
Spirit Animal: Sprinkle the Unicorn by Knitting By Post
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Are you a member of a knitting group, Scorpio? Although you might prefer to get your head down and power through your knitting, having a regular group can help to keep you on track with your projects and (finally) get some finished! Of course, you should certainly indulge yourself in binge-watching a new series while working through that stockinette stitch every once in a while.
Spirit Animal: Frankie Flamingo by Hillandbenz
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
It’s time for a challenge dear Sagittarius! You’ll find yourself facing your stash and ready to take it on. Knit more yards than you buy, and you’ll be rewarded with a wonderful chance to treat yourself to some new, dreamy skeins. It will certainly test your willpower, but with the determination you’ll show this month you’ll be sure to meet it head-on.
Spirit Animal: Loveable Lion by Rainebo
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns will look to broaden their horizons this month and get the urge to try a new skill. The great news is there’s plenty of skills you can learn to support your knitting habit! Why not learn to spin and turn beautiful fluffy clouds of fiber into your own plied yarn? Or perhaps you’d like to learn more about dying your yarns to the perfect shade? Take on the challenge!
Spirit Animal: Bumble Bee by Steffi Hochfellner
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Don’t cut corners this month, Aquarius! You’ll be tempted to take the easy way out – avoiding tension squares and ignoring mistakes. This could lead to ruin (and potentially garments that are waaay too big!) and no-one wants to see their knitting come undone. Stay patient, be strict with yourself, and you’ll reap the rewards with your beautiful finished objects.
Spirit Animal: Henry the Horse by Amanda Berry
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Have you run out of hiding places for your yarn yet? August will be filled with temptations for you Pisces, but you’ll need to keep your impulses in check. Owning more than a lifetime’s worth of yarn may look and feel amazing, but down the line could lead to frustration, and despair (and that’s just your family & friends’ reactions!). Work out what exactly you’d make with your stash, and be ruthless if you’ve had some yarns for an awfully long time – donating will give you a warm fuzzy feeling too.
Spirit Animal: Chick & Egg by Fiona Goble
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You’ll have the urge to get out and about this month – so take a WIP out on an adventure! Create the ultimate travelling knitting kit, with circular needles, stitch markers and a trusty sewing needle. You’ll be inspired when knitting out and about – so be prepared to begin some new projects! We can’t wait to see what you create.
Spirit Animal: Mac the Highland Bull by Amanda Berry
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Oh Taurus you can be such a stubborn one! If you’re persevering with a long-term project that you just don’t enjoy – why are you putting yourself through the agony? Unless the knit is for a gift or a request from a friend/family member, consider frogging the project and moving on to more exciting endeavours. There’s no such thing as failure, just a longer route to knitty success!
Spirit Animal: Shark by Natty Knits
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Have you ever considered hosting a Stash Swap Party with your knitting buddies? It’s a fantastic way to freshen up your stash, without spending a penny! This will be ideal timing as you face the temptation to buy more yarns this month. Keep your focus on the rewarding feeling on having a little stash clear out, and the excitement of swapping them for something new.
Spirit Animal: Tinsel Sloth by Fiona Goble
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Did you get any new yarns for your birthday Cancer? Do your best to keep them to once side this month, as you’ll do well to give the long-term residents of your stash some attention. Get inspired by looking through some patterns, and if you just aren’t excited about the yarn anymore – donate it! You’ll feel refreshed and so will your stash.
Spirit Animal: Narwhal by Eskimimi
