Someday, dh & I would love to live somewhere warm in the winters but the thought struck me today...would I still knit? It doesn't seem like tropics would inspire knitting too much but I know that people knit all over so was just curious. Do you just knit cotton stuff? Does it still feel inspiring to knit?

Yes. I lived in the south for years. Just recently moved to San Diego.<br><br>
I still knit everyting - scarves, wool items, socks, slippers, wool soakers, baby sweaters, etc. I go to NYC once a year for holidays (so, I need the warm stuff then), and I give a lot of stuff as gifts (family lives in Poland).<br><br>
I also make, for myself, in warm climates things like bags, tank tops, etc. I made a bikini once, lol. That was only for indoor use, to say the least. It's still fun to knit, and still inspiring to knit.

I am in FL and I knit and crochet all the time. As far as knitting, the only thing I am interested in is socks (still learning). But I crochet all sorts of stuff. Thread can be worn in warm climates with no problem.

I live in San Diego and I knit! But I'm not sure what I would knit if I lived in, say, Hawaii . . . lots of bags and toys, perhaps?

Yep, I live in Hawaii and I knit all the time. It can be hard to find wool around here. Mostly people knit the same stuff as they do in colder areas, only in cotton!

LA-area (don't want to admit to the OC, kwim?) ... winters are warm and I knit. I have had a couple northern European friends freak out over Californians engaged in summer knitting, though.

I don't live in a <i>very</i> warm climate, but I imagine that if I moved to one, I would still knit. Nothing can stop me from knitting. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
