The nights are getting colder around here. How about in your neck of the woods? I know some of you are heading into summer, but around here we’re waiting for the snow flurries to start up. If you’re heading into winter, there are some things you will want to do to prepare. (All squirrels have to do is hide a few nuts, but our list is a little longer.)
2. Make a list of movies or TV shows that you want to catch up on. I just finished The Blacklist. Next up: Homeland. (Any other suggestions?)
3. Shore up your yarn stash to insure proper insulation for your home and loved ones. Let it not be said that it’s cold in your house. Current stash doesn’t count. You need some new stash to stir things up a bit. Trust me on this. 😉
4. Compile a list of books on tape that you can listen to while you knit or sew. It looks like you can try a free audiobook from Audible.com. (I’m not a member of Audible – I just googled free audiobooks and that came up. Feel free to share other options below.)
5. Plan a few new projects to get your creative juices flowing. (It keeps you warmer). Did you know that when knitting you should switch between weights and needle sizes from time to time, to give your hands and fingers a break? Plan some light projects (lace, fingering, sport weights) and some heavier projects (DK, worsted, bulky weights), and switch between them during the week.
I love winter. I’m ready to get into wearing cozy sweaters and settling in by the fire with a good project, a hot beverage, and a good book or movie to listen to. Do you have any book/movie/TV/yarn/pattern/recipe suggestions for us?
