a knitter or crocheter for all seasons - 3KCBWDAY4

Seasons? What are they? Where I am, it's hot ... and hotter. No, I joke, because in reality, some "winter" days are quite spring-like, with gentle breezes, and cool mornings. But generally that's it. I do miss the varying seasons. So does the crafter in me.


When I'm sensible, I crochet items for the home or something light and lacy.

Bags and cushions are great too, as it doesn't usually matter how warm they are.



For wearables I tend to stick to cottons.



And for blankets the warm and wash-friendly acrylics are fine.



Sometimes though, my craving for the seasons, namely spring and autumn, are reflected in my colour choices.




Warm tones for autumnal bliss.






And light and bright for spring's freshness.

Asalaama Alaikum - what is winter LOL! Lovely posting and blog. We lived 8 years in the UAE and now nearly 2 in Penang and uhm I so know about hot and hotter LOL. In the UAE we had two seasons. In Penang just 1! We are also gearing up for another move in 2 months - more of the same hot and hotter. Cheers, off to check out ALL of your blog.

I can relate, because here we just have one season, but it is Spring! I cannot complain.
I enjoyed seeing your lovely projects.

Wow im impressed, Someone once asked Hadhrat Ibraheem bin Adham (Allaah have mercy upon him) for advice. Come and have a look at "Six Habits"

We have the same problem here, I use a lot of cotton too. And you can always make bags and coasters :-)

Your knitting and crochet is beautiful. I especially like the yellow and blue bag. I enjoyed reading your blog week posts very much.

Hello! I like your works, so nice colours and very neatly done!
Please, tell me, how do you attach a zip to a crochet purse or a make up kit? I would like to try on my newly done purse too :)
Thanks!

Indianka, I used JessyZ's tutorial: http://www.chocolatemintsinajar.com/craft/2010/09/quick-dirty-adding-zipper-crochet-pouch/
and if you check out her blog you'll see a tute for a zipper with lining.
Thanks everyone for stopping by with your kind comments!
