What to do for this post? Answer a meme, of course. Purly and Angela both tagged me with the knitting space meme. I meant to answer a while ago, but I just couldn't get a good pic really and what do you do if you have more than one knitting hot spot?
This is where the planning begins. I sit behind the sofa, dwarfed by my bookcases, looking for patterns I have yarn for or getting new ideas for something later. A couple of shelves above this is my yarn stash, so everything is within easy reach. It's a pretty tight spot, hence the wonky picture, which makes it a really good place to hide from the boyfriend. I'm surprised he hasn't caught on this whole time, he just has to see that the glass doors are opened which must mean I'm there.
Ever wonder why my knitting is a little slow at times? Because one of my other spots is at my desk, where my computer tempts me with it's easy access to bloglines and flickr. I always think I can do both, or that I'll be really quick, but nope I get sucked in by all of your blogs. Maybe this spot needs to be retired for '06. I've been replacing it with the kitchen (no pic), though it doesn't always work since I have wi-fi at home.
The futon, I'm usually here on our boring, beige futon with boring beige pillows. This most likely explains why my projects need to be nice and bright! Needless to say, I didn't pick this one out, but what can you do? I knit while watching tv or "watching" the boyfriend play video games. I'm not sure why he needs me there, but it works out for the two of us.
Thanks everybody for the sweet comments on my mom's shawl. I really do hope she likes it. The parental units fly up tonight and then tomorrow we drive up to stay with my boyfriend's family, needless to say I won't be blogging much for the next week or so (though I'll try to sneak a post in before new year's).
I did want to thank Eunny for the early xmas present she sent me:
I've never had someone go through so much trouble to make me something, especially something as gorgeous as this. It's perfect! I love that I can use it as a purse or as a knitting bag since it's so roomy. I know that I'll be treasuring this for a long time.
Happy Holidays everybody!
