Knitting and Crocheting - Anne Nordhaus-Bike

Anne learned to knit as a child and learned to crochet in the early 2000s. In recent years, she has returned to making yarn art. She frequently creates her own patterns and designs, making garments, accessories, and useful items for herself and for family and friends.

Valentine Shawl  by Anne Nordhaus-Bike
During the first year of the Living in Harmony astrology and art newsletter, we posted one of Anne’s knit or crochet pieces here each month to help readers harmonize with that month’s astrological sign or season.

Here are all 12 of the original yarn pieces, one for each astrological/calendar month. You can use these images every month, of every year, to help align yourself with the current astrological and seasonal energies:

  1. As the Sun enters a new sign each month, take some time to look at the knit or crochet piece associated with it; click any image below to reach the knitting and crocheting archive page, which provides full descriptions, larger images, and astrological/seasonal background for each item.

  2. During the month, reflect on how the piece expresses the qualities associated with its zodiac sign and consider how you can express those qualities in your own life.
