The Knitting Place



Madge and Ellen have started this little Show & Tell about their favorite knitting spots. So here's mine. Ellen cleaned hers up to a level that Good Housekeeping could photograph, and Madge's isn't far behind. But here's mine, in something truly resembling its natural state.

I have my Ott light, another lamp to help with really close work, my loveseat which I share with Midnight's kitty bed (gift from my dear blogless friend Lunadog), my coffee table which is really quite tidy at the moment, and my wonderful little Chinese chest. I found this in a local 'antique' store and snatched it immediately. Inside the 2 doors are 3 drawers for knitting notions, pens and papers, etc. and an open area perfect for my sets of Denise and KnitPicks needles; the bottom drawer holds my magnetic board for charts, my roll of hand-carved crochet hooks from Bill at Turn of the Century and other flat items.

DH calls me the "Imelda Marcos" of tote bags, and I do have a lot. Nearly every project has its own tote; smaller ones have a plastic zip bag and live with bigger projects. The TV and stereo are across the room, my iPod is at hand - everything I want is nearby. And the little bear on the side table has a tote that says "Knitting is my bag."

So - show off YOUR favorite knitting spot !!

What a wonderful spot, functional and cozy. Makes me think I need to declutter and attack the dust bunnies around here.

Oh gosh, too many dust bunnies (and M's toys) in my house too. Maybe I'll share my little corner in the new house...

You have such a cozy knitting spot. The only thing missing from the photo is you & Midnight...

Thanks for playing along, too, CBM! I love your cozy corner. Imelda Marcos of tote bags - hee.

I'll have to get my niece to take a pic of my knitting place when she's here next week. It's just the bed, but it is comfy, with a good view of the tv and a radio on the window sill, in case I want to listen to a ballgame.

I noted the cat bed right away. It's always so lolvely to have a cat at one's side.

Love your knitting spot! Great love seat for spreading out and places to hide things if you need to tidy up.
