There are a few factors that are involved in my choosing of what to knit that day, the biggest one, for me, is the weather. This may sound weird, but listen me out.
I have a lovely window, right by my bed, which looks out onto our back garden and a few fields (this is the country - there are fields everywhere!). So, as soon as my eyelids flutter open in the morning, I open the curtains to admire the weather for the day. Now, if you don't already think I'm weird enough, I love any kind of weather. If I had the health to do so, I'd be out all day every day, rain or shine. I just love being outdoors.
Unfortunately, at the moment, my health is at the point where I can only leave the house once or twice a week. As I am inside the house all the time, the weather doesn't affect my day at all.
So one day last year, I decided to work on a project that complimented the weather we were having outside. "WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?!" I hear you ask. Okay, so this is how it works.
If the sun is shining and its warm outside, then I'll work on a bright coloured project, or one that has some kind of link to summer. Ex - working on a strawberry baby hat fits the bill, as it is both bright, and a fruit that is most readily available in the summer.
Now, if it is raining, cloudy or windy, you have to knit a comfy project. Either it must a warm/soft/chunky yarn, something big (like a blanket), or a project that you would wear in such weather (ex - working on a scarf).
Now, you may think that is an insane way of picking a project, and thats fine if you think so. I do know others that do it though, so I don't feel as crazy as I probably should do.
How do you go about choosing a project to knit (or crochet!)? Tell me in the comments below! I'll see you all at the same time tomorrow, until then, I'm off to watch The Notebook...
