Topic of the Week - Dishcloth Exchange

Topic: 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?

No, I do not change. Our weather here in the SE doesn't change much until Jan or Feb. We only get a few cold months, & only a few flurries if we are lucky. I really miss the snow!! :(
I love felted bags & of course that takes 100% wool.... dishcloths are always good.... I tend to use acrylic for afghans, those I usually do knit or crochet in the cooler months..... and sweaters are usually knit in lighter weight yarns, cotton, linen & other yarns that are airy, etc..... don't get much use out of heavy sweaters here. It was 90 something here today!!! Yuck! It is supposed to be fall for goodness sakes! Unfortunatley we are usually still in short sleeves at Christmas here.
