Knitting Season

So it’s almost Yule, almost Xmas, and it finally got cold.  By “finally” I mean literally: it just stopped being over 50 degrees (F) daily yesterday.  I guess this gives me time to catch up with my blog – and my knitting.  One of my favorite things about fall is knitting.  Projects I wouldn’t tackle in the summer when no wants to sit under a heavy fabric become appealing.  Once it gets past January and Imbolc passes – I’m only interested in knitting shawls, spring, and summer, or the occasional blanket. See, the trouble with starting something after mid-winter is the unlikely you’ll actually get to wear the finished object.  I know from experience if something can’t be used and ends up “sitting” for too long I’ll never wear it.  I don’t really like hats that much once it warms up, so the only accessories are shawls, bags, maybe socks.  That’s fine and I enjoy those projects – however it’s not the same as a big cabled jumper.  So here are a few shots of what I have been up to lately.

About Pixie

I'm just your average 20-something trying to figure it out. I am also a theologian, yogi, witch, pagan, dirty hippie, activist (progressive politics), feminist, knitter, environmentalist, and friend. I've also been accused of being a hipster - I am not sure about that. I am sometimes happy to be Gen Y (go Harry Potter) and most of the time confused (seriously guys... ) by everyone else. My hobbies including knitting (and maybe crochet), quilting, recycling, cooking, writing, reading, and biking. I'm finishing up a masters in public policy and when I worked worked in political nonprofits as an activist.
