The Knitting Nook
I really enjoy being able to see my favorite yarns and books and that is why there is a knitting nook in my family room. I do not have a craft room but I am totally fine with that. In the family room is where I do my knitting. This table (made by my husband years ago) holds everything I need. It is also my inspiration. I can look at the hanks of yarn that I have purchased and think about what I might make of them. I have a jar of neutral buttons (another big tin can upstairs holds the rest of my button collection). There is a big box on the bottom shelf that contains all of my knitting needles and markers that I do not use regularly. This nook is where my favorite yarns have a home.
The huge wire basket holds all of my lace weight yarn. It is supposed to hold a vegetables after picking them from the garden. Harvesting hanks of fiber is much more fun for me.
The dog in the photo is Zoe. She was a much loved pet who died in December 2009. We loved her so much that we decided to get Frodo in the same month. Zoe never even considered trying to get out of the back yard :) But then she weighed 67 pounds.....it's kind of tough when you cannot fit under or through a fence.
I have much more yarn in my walk in closet. That is where I keep the cottons, blends, worsted weights and novelty yarn.
Before my daughter left for school she raided the closet for some acrylic yarns to make charity knitted items. There were skeins in there that have sat around for decades and now they will have a purpose.
Do you have a knitting nook? Where is it in your house?
(yes! I did knit the table runner it is on this project page)
