Nurtured to Knit

I told my husband, October rolls around and I want to start crocheting and knitting. I don't know why, so strange.

When my mom saw me knitting last week, she commented, Your Nana always used to pull out her crocheting in the fall. She said it was too hot to bother with in the summer, but October through April, she always had yarn by her side.

Mystery solved.

What things, I wonder, will I pass down subconsciously to my children?


  1. Same here! Autumn always brings the urge to knit and/or crochet. Maybe it's part of some nesting instinct, getting ready for winter. (??)

    I gave a knitting loom like the one in your pictures to my niece a couple of Christmases ago, and she learned to use it in no time. She was only 6 at the time, I think, maybe even only 5. Fun!

  2. I do the same thing...when it's hot outside, the last thing I want on my lap is a half finished crocheted project, but now, I'm ready to dig in again!
