'Now that in some geographic locations the weather is starting to turn cooler, do you change the type of yarn(s) you knit/crochet with? If so, what do you now knit/crochet with instead and why? If not, why do you not switch and what do you knit/crochet with?'
I don't think I've changed my type of yarn because of the weather, after all, it's not been a very hot summer here on the whole. If it has been hot then I've probably changed my hobby to some different needlework like sewing.....
I love to knit with soft smooth yarn...my most recent item, the Leaf Cardigan from Knitty, was made using Cascade Indulgence. I have never enjoyed a yarn so much...alpaca and angora, bliss!
I only really like to knit with cotton for dishcloths, it just doesn't 'give' enough for larger items, unless it is a blend. I find it doesn't knit too smoothly either, the stitches always look uneven in stocking stitch to me.
My mind is turning to scarfs and socks now that Autumn approaches.....
