Knitting Horoscopes – September
The seasons are changing and so are the stars! Take a look and find out your fate, along with your stellar supplies!
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
We’re in your spotlight, Virgo! Have you noticed your stash looking a little small? Focus on getting those long term projects cast off and sewn up, and get ready to shop for new yarn soon!
Stellar Supplies: Knit Pro Tapestry Needle Set
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Can you feel the change in season? We are looking forward to it as much as you are! Knitting season can get well and truly underway, and you aren’t holding back! Watch your needles fly as soon as the weather turns chilly, but be careful not to bite off more than you can chew when it comes to works-in-progress. Sometimes, less is more.
Stellar Supplies: Clover Locking Stitch Markers
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Have you knitted anything for yourself in a while, Scorpio? Perhaps it’s time to cast on something for you – it could be a quick knit in something chunky, or something you can take your time over and enjoy. Make yourself something woolly that you can wear on your birthday! Then get cracking with those holiday gifts.
Stellar Supplies: Minicraft Toy Stuffing
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
How did you end up with so many projects on the go? We find ourselves asking this question all the time, but this month you’ll notice the compulsion to cast on is stronger than ever! Unless you have a set deadline, avoid starting something new – use your willpower to finish something on your needles and you’ll be rewarded with that warm fuzzy feeling.
Stellar Supplies: Hemline Spring-loaded Tape Measure
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Finishing touches are your forte Capricorn! Get out your buttons, bells and ribbons – you’ll be feeling inspired to customize your knits and truly make them your own. Take inspiration from current trends and fashions, or make something to perfectly suit your tastes. If the thought of it makes you nervous, that’s even more reason to give it a try.
Stellar Supplies: Clover Pom-Pom Maker (Large)
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
What are your stash storage solutions Aquarius? If you have cupboards and boxes bursting at the seams, then perhaps it’s time to have a little tidy up. Keep your current projects close in a handy tote bag, and make a list of your stash to help you decide what you would like to make with it. Calm will be restored and you might even find extra space for some new yarn!
Stellar Supplies: Housework Tote Bag
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You just can’t put your needles down can you! We know the feeling, sitting down empty handed just isn’t an option. Why not challenge yourself this month with a pattern to keep you focussed and concentrating? Perhaps some complicated cables or beautiful beadwork in that new shawl you wanted to start. Your hands will certainly be kept busy!
Stellar Supplies: Mill Hill Glass Beads
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Have you started knitting gifts for the holidays? You haven’t?! Phew, nor have we. That’s ok, now is the perfect time to make that list of knits, check it twice, then cast on! Making for others is a wonderful feeling, and it’s great to imagine the look on their faces when they unwrap them! No stressed knitters here – you’ve got this covered.
Stellar Supplies: Addi Line French Knitter
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Brisk walks in hand-knitted, woolly wares is just the best feeling isn’t it? You can enjoy that feeling too, if you would only get that long term project finally finished! We don’t mean to nag, you’ve got a lot of other projects on your plate, but focus on one of them for this month and you’ll be reminded of that satisfying feeling when you cast off.
Stellar Supplies: Rico Silver Bells
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Now where did you put down that sewing needle? Oh dear, be careful not to get your skeins in a twist this month Gemini. Make sure you store your accessories and projects in easy-to-find places. Maybe even store your patterns in a nice folder! Keeping organised will help you keep a clear mind, and prevent any stitches from being dropped!
Stellar Supplies: Trimits Button Jar
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
We know you would rather the summer stayed for another month (preferably a year!) but it’s nearly time to put the cotton yarns away. Keep warm with your woolliest of yarns in your stash, you’ll just love knitting up something fuzzy to snuggle under on the chilly evenings. Perhaps save the cotton projects for the occasional sunny day.
Stellar Supplies: LoveKnitting Organza Bags
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Did you get a project finished last month Leo? Congratulations if you did! Take pride in your knits and enjoy casting on something new. If you didn’t quite get something finished, don’t be too hard on yourself – some projects are a marathon and not a sprint. You can plan ahead and think about what you’ll knit next – that will keep you motivated to finish your current project.
Stellar Supplies: Pony Multi-Colored Stitch Holders
Look out for next month’s Horoscopes and the spooky knits you should make!
