My Happy Knitting Place

 

For every place and situation, there's the right sort of knitting. There's bus knitting, lunch-time knitting, tv-knitting, meeting-with-friends knitting, holiday-knitting, sit-through-audio-meeting-knitting and, how Jo and I recently discovered, wedding-knitting. Yes, you can take your knitting when you're going to a fellow knitter's big day. No weird questions were asked (to our faces).

When I'm at home I have a couple of comfortable places where I like to knit. One is in our living-room (which I can't show because I'd have to explain the heaps of wips and yarn surounding it!) and one upstairs, under the roof:

I knit to relax, so I almost always knit in this easy-chair. This particular spot is on the landing in our flat. It's the perfect little area with a south-facing window. I always have a pile of books and magazines, my needles and tools, my head-phones, IPad and a cup of tea within reach. When I knit in this chair, I mostly listen to audio-books or podcasts, and my wireless headset is great for this. No cables that tangle with my yarn or get accidentally knit into a project :-)

Jo will be showing us her favourite knitting place next and I recommend that you stay tuned after that as we will be running a great little yarn-giveaway around this topic!
