Florida Fiber Fans!
I this new thread!

Wool and 97 degrees + humidity may not seem like the ideal knitthing environment (unless of course you consider the felting opportunity), but I've found plenty of knitting fanactics here in Sunny South Florida! Granted many of them are north east US transplants, but they are Florida knitters now!

Who else out there can appreciate a good quality cotton or linen yarn or some open lace work to let the sun shine in?

Now Becka, you know we knitters are a mighty inclusive bunch - of course it counts!!

As most "Floridians" will tell you, hardly anyone who lives here is actually from here!

Southwest FL here! I'm a transplant, of course

I usually have two projects going, placed in the rooms where I watch TV. One small project (five pairs of knee booties for a great-niece) is living in the bedroom and travels with me to my home office too, for when I listen to podcasts.
My project living in the living room right now is a crocheted chenille afghan, but that's only for nights when the air conditioning is on or we're having a cool front. Too hot to have it on my lap, otherwise.
Knitting in Florida makes for good business for the post office, because all that stuff eventually gets shipped up north to family.
