I’m leaning toward knitting once again, but I take Arimidex for breast cancer, and I get major hot flashes.
How do you manage your knitting jones with hot flashes? The type of yarn? The openness of the pattern? What type of yarn/needles/equipment is best to use while exceedingly warm? Or worse, hot and cold, alternating.
I’ve done color-knitting, a la Kaffe Fasset in the past, but now I’m leaning toward some simpler, regular, open pattern blanket.
What do you call stitches, when put together, form a pattern? I look for those online, but only get formal knitting patterns for specific items. You know what I mean? Stitches, when put together form a pleasing pattern over a large area. Can you recommend a resource for that? In chemo I saw a woman using beautiful yarns with large needles knitting a “throw” in alternating squares of stitches.
Help, must use hands.
