Normally, by the time the holiday rolls around, the snow and cold is behind us and nurseries are full of people getting plants for their home. Boats are brought out of storage and taken to the lake and cottages are opened up. Some knitters set aside their needles and don't knit during the warm weather, preferring to wait until the colder days' return (all too quickly, in my opinion). SOME knitters, not me. I knit year round.
Queen Victoria was a knitter, crocheter and spinner. I wonder what she'd think of today's knitting with so many yarn choices, ways to connect with other knitters, patterns and tools.
