Knitting Horoscopes – June
Find out what June will hold for you and your knitting projects this month, along with your lucky yarn!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
It’s your time to shine Gemini! With your sign in power, nothing can stop your creative flow. Pick up that neglected WIP and watch as your rows fly by – you’ll be casting off before you know it. Your enthusiasm means you will work through hundreds of stitches. Use your motivation to encourage the knitters around you to finish their project, they’ll thank you for it.
Lucky Yarn: Lang Yarns Carpe Diem
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Towards the end of the month you will come into your own, but the start of June will be a tricky time for you, Cancer. Stitches will be dropped and rows will be frogged. You’ll become distracted and lose motivation, but a new purchase will turn things around! Stay positive and pick up a smaller project when the long-term knits get you down.
Lucky Yarn: Debbie Bliss Rialto Chunky
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
When it comes to complex patterns, your ferocious tenacity makes you a force not to be reckoned with, Leo. This month you will conquer cables and battle with brioche stitch. Striving for perfection is wonderful but remember, it’s ok to make a mistake, you’re only human. Take the pressure off and enjoy every row you work.
Lucky Yarn: Lion Brand Wool Ease
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
As an Earth sign, Virgos tend to keep their feet on the ground and stick with what they know. This month is your chance to experiment and step out of your comfort zone! If this makes you nervous then make a small change – work on a new stitch you’ve never tried. If you’re willing to take the leap, switch up your next project and needle size. Go really big, or really small! You might surprise yourself.
Lucky Yarn: Rowan Kidsilk Haze
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
It’s smooth sailing for you this month Libra! Your quiet confidence means your projects will continue to progress with no major stitches dropped. Concentration and stitch markers are the key to keeping the waters calm – don’t get too comfortable reading that chart pattern!
Lucky Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Oh dear Scorpio, I’m afraid June is not looking very productive for you! In the first half of the month you’ll find yourself taking two steps forward and one step back with your current WIP. You may have to face reality and frog the project, but try to stay positive and see it as an opportunity to cast on something different. Hang in there!
Lucky Yarn: Hoooked Ribbon XL Solids
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You’re itching to expand your stash this month Sagittarius – how exciting! If you know what you like and have a project in mind, take a moment to get inspired by other people’s projects. Have you found that perfect pattern by an independent designer? Take the time to search through other patterns they have written, you might just stumble across something surprisingly different.
Lucky Yarn: Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Solids
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You need color, dear Capricorn, and lots of it! The approaching summer weather makes you crave bright shades and complimentary colors. Your focus is drawn to colors you wouldn’t normally choose for a project, but channel the inspiration and use it to create a summer garment for yourself.
Lucky Yarn: Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Have you ever felt frustrated with a pattern and just wished you could design your own, Aquarius? June could be the month to flex those creative muscles and write up your first knitting pattern but don’t rush – good things come to those who wait. Get a friend to test knit your creation before you release it into the wild.
Lucky Yarns: Rowan Felted Tweed DK
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
There’s a feeling of chaos surrounding your yarn stash and projects this month. Have you got your mohairs mixed in with your merinos? Are your WIPs getting overwhelming? Take some time out to sort through your skeins and set things in order. Your project corner will thank you for it, and you might even find you have some space for new yarn purchases!
Lucky Yarn: Cascade 220
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Are your Unfinished Objects haunting you Aries? Perhaps June is the month you overcome your fears and face what lurks in your many project bags. By the middle of the month you’ll feel much better and may even find new enthusiasm for a long-forgotten project! No more casting on for you this month!
Lucky Yarn: Bergere de France Goomy 50
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Your stars may have moved on, but your continuing curious nature will lead you to many discoveries in June. A pattern or two will lead to another two, then before you know it you have fallen down a knitting pattern wormhole! That’s not a bad thing though Taurus, you’ll discover some beautiful projects to add to your queue! Enjoy the journey.
