Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

  Dishcloth Swap Topic #1
Now that in some geographic locations the weather is starting to turn cooler, do you change the type of yarn(s) you knit/crochet with? If so, what do you now knit/crochet with instead and why? If not, why do you not switch and what do you knit/crochet with?

I'm lucky enough to live in very beautiful Humboldt County where the weather is mild year-round. This means I don't knit cotton in the summer and wool in the winter, but all the good stuff year round. My main focus as the weather turns cooler, as you know from reading my previous few posts, is Christmas knitting. This means I get to knit a variety of things for the variety of people I love. Wool hats, acrylic kidswear, superwash socks, alpaca shawls, cotton dishcloths, etc.

Sorry this is such a short post, but I need a nap! I'm halfway through the first volacno sock, details on that soon!
