How Many Knitting Nooks?
If you knit anywhere near as much (or more) than I do, you probably have many little knitting nooks. No?
How Many Knitting Nooks In Your Home?
You know…the place with stitch markers/holders, scissors, needle gauges and any other notions you want close at hand? I only have 2.5 prepared knitting nooks.
My main two are my chair for watching television and the couch in my living room.
I don’t do any actual knitting in my craft area. I wind yarn and do other things that are knitting-adjacent. And while I technically knit at my circular sock knitting machine “station”, I don’t hand-knit there. And that craft takes a completely different set of tools and notions.
Many knitters discuss how much space they allocate to their stashes. But how much home space do you allocate toward creating a knit-positive environment?
I finished the fifth Snug Cowl/Gaiter using all three colors I have in this particular yarn.
I’m very pleased with the result. I will probably end up making more of these at one point in the future. They were originally intended to fit a petite woman or a child. But honestly, they’re kind of a nice, warm, worry and hands-free garment.
I’m glad I documented the simple instructions for these garments. After knitting other things for a while, I will definitely forget the exact particulars.
In fact, I also finished another pair of Rose’s Fingerless Mitts, and I had to refer back to my pattern a couple of times.
Crazy that I can make dozens of pairs and take a brief break and still not have the pattern seared into my brain.
