How Does Spring Influence Your Crafting?

Spring crochetingNow that it’s finally starting to feel like spring, I feel rushed to finish one last wool sweater before the weather gets too hot. During the cooler months, I almost exclusively knit and crochet sweaters; once the temperature hits 75, I only want to make socks, hats, and other small, portable projects. However, I still use my favorite fiber, wool, in the same jewel-toned color palette all year long.

How do the changing seasons affect your yarncrafting? Do you change the types of projects you make like I do, or do you use a different fiber like cotton or bamboo during the warmer months? Are you inspired by a different color palette? Let us know in the comments!
