It’s funny how people think knitting is something you do only in the winter. Yes, using wool yarns is a great way to keep you warm in the winter while giving you something to do. Knitting in the spring and summer gives you a chance to make a variety of things in light weight fibers. A couple of things on my To Do List are for the chilly spring and summer evenings:
Headbands are great for winter, fall, spring and summer. Just use the appropriate fiber and pattern. I have made many lovely lace headbands out of beautiful 100% cotton. You can also make necklaces, bracelets or market bags using cotton yarns.
Knitting is relaxing, creative, therapeutic, relieves stress and enjoyable. You can be in a knitting circle (Stitch ‘n Bitch), which allows you to meet new people, share a common interest, have supportive friends, good conversation and swap patterns. There has been a knitting revival and more and more people are learning to knit.
Hoping that there soon will be a Stitch ‘n Bitch in Rosh Pina and/or Tsfat. Both Tsfat and Rosh Pina have many creative people and galleries, so it’s about time they join the rest of the world (and other parts of Israel) and have their own Stitch ‘n Bitch groups.
