I'm planning on knitting dishcloths, finishing the tube socks I've started, and/OR working on thread crochet projects. Not only is thread cooler to work with, but it's also much less expensive than yarn.

I try to knit in the summer, but I usually don't. My hands get too sticky and things squeak.

I think it is because of the needles I use, but until I got here, I never knew better!

I usually knit dishcloths - they're easy, lightweight, and make great Christmas gifts!!!

Since I'm in a climate controlled environment most of the time, I plan to work on holiday gifts to beat that rushed feeling in between light weight knitted tops.
