I really want to sew, but my sewing room is in the basement. Yes, I have a furnace in the house, but when there is a fire in the wood burning stove the furnace does not turn on. Another factor is that passive solar gain in my house also keeps the furnace from turning on. What a dilemma! I love the advantages of the wood burning stove and the solar, not to mention not paying big $$$ to a utility company, but it certainly limits the sewing in the winter.
I have looked around the main floor to see if there is a spot I can carve out for my featherweight but that, too, isn't going to work since I am not the only one in the house.
I have tried doing a bit of hand sewing but frankly, I need to spread out when I work on the current project.
So there you have it. I knit in the winter because it is too cold to sew.
