Fall Into Autumn Topic of the Week

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 do like to use lighter weight yarns, especially cottons, in the warmer months. I try not to use my a/c at home any more than absolutely necessary so much of the summer we are breaking a bit of a sweat around here. lol

I like to work on things like market bags and more whimsical items in the summer but now that it is cooling off a bit I have begun swatching for a Zimmermann Surprise Jacket made with Cascade 220 in several different colors. You can check out my September 1st post for the colors I have chosen.

I'm also toying with the idea of a new felted bag for winter. This one is pretty cool it's called Jasperuvia and is offered as a free pattern from Berroco.com. I even like the colors as shown on the model.
