The weather here in Holland is pretty stable, it’s not extremely cold in winter and the summers are not hot at all. We get some lovely sunny weather but also rain
I’m just a beginner in knitting and crochet, it’s been about a year since I started this wooly adventure. The projects I choose are more a spur of the moment thing. I read blogs, check pinterest and ravelry and I see pattern that I just HAVE to make regardless of the weather.
Like this table runner:
Made from cotton and this would be a great summer project but I made it in Autumn, just because I liked it.
Sometimes a gift is made for a birthday. Like this scarf I made for my mom made in September:
Sometimes cold weather does make me in need of some warm wearable projects. I tend to get really cold ears even with a hat so I made a little headband this winter:
Of course I wouldn't have made this in summer, but projects purely inspired by the temperatures are pretty rare.
I do look forward to knitting on the beach! Last summer we didn't go on vacation, we stayed in the Netherlands and the summer wasn't too great. No knitting/crochet on the beach and I grew up near it so I very much enjoy going to the beach (even when it rains). This year were going to Croatia!
We're going by car so no luggage restrictions (helloooo suitcase full of yarn ;-p). Can't wait to knit in the sun like I do on my balcony:
Projects I knit outdoor have to be small though, now big blankets and such. Only when the blanket can be made in individual parts. How about you? Where is your favorite outdoor knit/crochet place? And what kind of projects do you make?
