My knitting spot

All right people, let's see your knitting spot! I saw this meme on Scout's blog this morning (her Dec 7 entry) and it sounded like fun. So here's my knitting spot and why yes, that is knitting progress on the armrest! I've completed the first sleeve for my husband's Hringur sweater . One more to go and then it's the homestretch on the yoke.

It's kinda funny looking at the picture now because it can play like a page from the Ikea catalogue with 7 1/2 Ikea products in this shot only! Other than the books and stuff in the bookcases and my folding knitting basket (?), the only thing in the picture not from Ikea is the Persian rug my husband and I invested in using the money we received as wedding gifts. Evidently, we're addicted to trying to fit huge flat boxes in our Civic, driving through a metropolis trying not to loose any, and assembling our own furniture with a so not ergonomic allen key :0) What's that about?

Everything, and I mean everything in my old appartment was from Ikea: affordable high style. When we got married, we started investing in custom Quebec pine furniture and had a solid wood dining table made and a king size bed frame and armoir for our room...then we ran out of money and finished furnishing the Ikea! We love and hate that place. What keeps me coming back is that their stuff is affordable, current and fresh. What gets my husband are the hot dogs they sell by the tills. I must admit, the Montreal Ikea makes the best hot dogs!

Enough about Ikea. Go on people, flash your spot...

Oh, and Monday is "SHOW US A PICTURE OF YOU WEARING CLOTHING PROPER FOR YOUR CURRENT CLIMATE" day. Check out Creative Genius' blog for more details.


  1. Ooh, nice knitting spot! I love Ikea!! :) We have a few Ikea pieces in our house too. :)

    I don't really have *one* knitting spot. I have several. There's my day-time knitting spots, and then there's my evening after-the-kids-are-in-bed knitting/tv spot. I think I'll have to take 4 pictures! *lol*

  2. I love your spot! It looks so comfy!

    Thanks for playing!
