I didn't think to mention this before but for those of you coming to visit or who have recently moved to Atlanta or new knitters - pollen season means taking precautions with your yarn and knitting!
Once the thick, yellow pollen starts coming down it is too late to pack all of the handmade things away - they end up needing a good wash. Now is the time that I start packing away all of those handwash items and my yarn stash gets protection.
I didn't think to mention it before but it hit me that there are new knitters who may not think of this.
It's bad enough what happens to your car but to have it happen to your expensive yarn and all those FO's that you've worked so hard on is heartbreatking!
Hey... my pollen report might end up being a good thing! It's time to start thinking about how to best protect your knitting so... what do you do? I actually use my cedar chest - all knitted things and my stash go in there. Hope it helps!
