I Got That Knittin’ Itch

It is that time of the year where it just seems right to curl up and knit the night away. Exciting life, right? Lately, I’ve been taking up so many different routines and knitting and crocheting until my eyes can’t stay open any longer is just one of those things. My room mate, Erin, and I make at least two to three runs to the craft store a week to buy extra skeins of yarn with our 40% off coupons. It has been so fun seeing what projects she is working on, and just sitting around at home chatting or watching project runway while we knit away (with hot tea, of course). I promise…this isn’t all we do.

I also have some new things in the works with knitting/crocheting coming to Always Rooney! I’ve been loving the mix of knit and leather so I’m working on some exciting projects with those materials and I am tossing around the idea of adding hats to my Etsy shop. Oh the possibilities!

Are you into knitting or crocheting? Do you have any hobbies that seem to come out during the fall or winter season more than others?
