Once every month, I’ll be re-posting from the old blog all the Knitstrology posts.

Sketching a Personality; Or, How I Have fun with Knitting and Astrology
Gemini: The Sign of the Twins
May 22 – June 21
Are you a process or a product knitter? Do you have a love/hate relationship with your stash?
Does your clever wit uplift a possibly downbeat knit night?
You might be a Gemini!
This sun sign says you’re meant to be dualistic; possessing traits, likes and dislikes that are, apparently, contradictory. Now, for this author, that seems like I could say anything about you, and it’d adhere to the “Gemini” personality sketch.
But lo, this may not be so!
Gemini love change, freedom, independence and communication. When you do show up for knit nights (sorry, you can be flighty! things don’t always hold your attention for very long), you’re the one to ask for advice. What should I knit for my impossible-to-knit-for brother? Will this variegated yarn compliment my hair colour?
Your restlessness might lead you to be one of those knitters who has, say, 30 WIPs and perhaps only a handful of FOs. Your voracious appetite for knowledge and learning may lead you to be attracted to projects because they’ll teach you something new.
Remember how I said you rule in communication? That applies to more than just chatting with your friends. You might make a great knit blogger, too! Try setting down some of your clever ruminations on knitting and sharing them with the cyber-public.
Gemini rules the hands and arms. Mitts, gloves, and armwarmers will all be welcome gifts for a Gemini!
Your lucky day is Wednesday, so starting projects then is a good idea.
Lucky colours for Gemini are lemon yellow and orange. I’m jealous! Such lively and happy colours. Pick up some sunny skeins for yourself or other Geminis you know.
