the Homely Home Part 2: more news December 7, 2012

Putting together my new knitting “micro environment” has been a real blast!

What are the bottom-line essentials in this stitching habitat?

Good lighting ( picture window / or elbow-armed floor lamp)

Amusing media ( netflix or itunes or gasp, antenna TV)

Coffee, tea or snacks! ( kitchen pantry just steps away!)

But missing? Really comfy seating~!

Now my olde leather couch is a pretty and stable work-horse. But it was just so rigid! In its previous house, it was used more like a soft chaise – with feet almost up and body perpendicular to the cushions.

Here it is straight on to the rest of the room and while knitting, I felt somehow like I was back in Sunday School, trying to stop sliding around on that miserable wooden pew. (Ever wonder why they call ‘em “pew”? More like PU – get me outta here!)

Any way all that’s changed now. (Phew.)

If it’s possible to have a crush on a piece of furniture, GUILTY!

From the textured cheetah upholstery to the little Louis the whatever turned wooden legs, I’m in love!

And my legs, feet and back are saying “thanks, I needed that…”

(gratuitous holiday WIP added for actual knitting content.)

    Oooh! The little footstool reminds me of one we had when I was growing up. Of course, that one was upholstered in red plush. I’ve been looking for something similar for years. Good buy!

    You included obligatory knitting content, but it is so not necessary. You are making a knitting space. That is content enough!

    The foot rest is really pretty, but I LOVE the rug! My grandmother had a couple rugs like that, and I’m excited to have my own place some day so I can put on in every room!
