May has proven to be another productive crafting month, though my urge to read and the increasing number of days where the weather is uncomfortable and sticky signal the season for knitting is almost over. Without central AC here, I’ve found that my crafting follows the calendar in an effort to not be more grumpy about things I’m unable to control. Thankfully, it’s been very chilly and rainy here all month, so I was able to keep going longer than I expected. This month, I knocked out another fingering weight sweater, started a sport weight cardigan, and I knit two pairs of socks. Not bad.

My only knitting goal for 2021 is to knit something every month: Another check mark for May. I had another pretty productive month, which feels good. It’s been a very long time since I knit socks apart from my advent pair. I know with summer’s heat all-too-near, I will be switching my crafting over to something else for a couple of months—spinning with the Tour and likely cross stitch—before I return to my needles. I’ll have to take advantage while the urge to knit is still here.

What about you, kitten? Are you making anything right now? Maybe you’re reading something interesting? I’d love to hear what you’re up to.

Take care of yourselves and each other.
