I am a knitter. I like wooly things. Which is why I am thankful for Colder Weather. Cold(er) weather is when I can pull out my handknits. Cold is when my hobby makes sense, especially considering that for the past nine years I have lived somewhere south of the Mason-Dixon line. But who can resist this?
I also think that cold in the winter is just how things are supposed to be. I get more things done in the winter, because I feel more like doing things. Sitting inside with the fire going calls to me to be working with my hands. Dark by dinner? No problem, since I have a pile of things that I can do indoors. I'm a child of the midwest, which generally means that if if is nice outside I feel like I should be outside. Winter and cold allow me to reset myself, gather my resources, and concentrate on renewing my energy. So bring on the cold weather, I say, because I am ready to knit.
