Knitter reactions to cold weather
Pumpkin carving, hot apple cider, and knitwear – these thingsall appear as the thermometer drops. Here are some examples of knitter reactions to cold weather.
It’s that time of year again, when we can put down the cotton yarns and small summery projects in favor of big sweaters made with alpaca yarn, and huge snuggly blankets made with oversized merino wool. Are you excited? I definitely am!
Break out the pumpkin spice candles and the super bulky wools, it’s time to get knitting for winter! Who has their Christmas cards written already? Who’s already planning holiday gifts? There’s nothing quite like frosty windowpanes and fireplaces to inspire elation in some knitters.
The quiet knitters are like ninjas. You never know that they even knit, and suddenly you get a matching winter accessories set for your birthday, knitted in 4 ply with enough cables to supply all of California. Quiet enthusiasm just means that people are more surprised to get your hand-knitted gifts!
“I’m going to make them such an awesome present, they won’t even know what to say!” These nefarious planners have had Christmas gifts mapped out since August….of last year.
Dancing is a perfectly acceptable response to feeling the pull of your stash – after all, that’s why you stock it up all year, in preparation for cold weather knitting! For those of us who can’t bear to knit heavy things in the summer, the arrival of cold weather is a literal breath of fresh air.
There’s no judgement here – I went into a shop selling ornaments today, and I bounced around like a toddler who’s had too much sugar. I love cold weather. I love everything about it – I’m like a woman possessed as soon as the first frost hits!
What’s your reaction to the cold weather?
