Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
A word of warning, Virgo. You’ll need to keep away from that wool of yours this month! Keep your fuzzy yarns at bay during the summer, and you’ll reap the rewards when fall arrives and you can cast on the fluffiest of jumpers. Instead, turn to lighter fibres such as cotton blends, or linen.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Do you ever get the feeling you’ve got too many projects on the go, Libra? No, us neither! But you should exercise caution this month, as July could see you buried under a pile of WIPs with no end to any of them in sight. Try to prioritise, what projects can you work on during the summer months? Which ones can wait until fall?

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
It’s a testing summer for Capricorns – you just HAVE to get those woolly knits finished! Battle through the summer warmth and you will be rewarded when the cold weather returns. A Capricorn’s determination is hard to match, so any deadlines you have looming will be reached with ease.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
