We (my husband and I) just moved to a new house! It’s very exciting. And, while the process was crazy stressful and we still have several (maybe more than several) boxes to unpack, I’m so happy with our new place.
One of my favorite things about the new house is that I get to use the spare bedroom as a craft room (if this knitting thing ever turns into a real job, I’ll get to call it a studio, but for now, it’s a craft room).
In the old house, I kept all my craft things up in the finished attic, which was also nice. The only problem with the attic was that I am 5’10”, and the attic was only about 6 feet tall at the highest point (I don’t know what the word is for that kind of roof, but it was all slanty, and constantly threatened me with concussions). Needless to say, I didn’t use the attic craft room as much as I should have.
But, here, in all its new crafty glory, is my new craft room. The nerve center of all things On the Needles. This is where the sausage gets made (or rather, will get made, once I finish unpacking the rest of the house).
Behold: old issues of knitting magazines, a pile of finished (and unfinished) knitting projects that need to get photos for the blog, bins of random craft supplies that I can’t bear to throw away because “I might need them some day.” A bookshelf complete with not one, but two copies of Stitch-n-Bitch (that I received as Christmas gifts from two different friends the same year, but I still haven’t given away for some reason). A comfy old hand-me-down chair from my folks, and a desk that we salvaged from a dumpster more than 15 years ago (and is still perfectly good).
Oh yes, I will spend many happy, productive hours here, with my needles (and my keyboard) clicking away to bring you lots of knitterly goodness.
Where do you do your crafting?
Love seeing pictures of the new house! Looks like you are settling in! I love all the light you have in this room. Enjoy and let the creative juices flow!
Thanks! I managed to take this picture on one of our rare sunny days. 😀
I’m jealous….what a nice craft room. I keep all my stuff in a back bedroom. I generally will take out what I need and work in the living room, in front of the TV.
Even though I have this nice room, I do spend a lot more of my knitting time in the living room, in front of the TV. But, I suppose that’s because I like knitting and TV-watching at the same time. 😀
