Usually my knitting machines are upstairs in a spare bedroom / sewing room.
With 2 knitting machines set up and a table also for sewing, (not to mention it is the smallest room in the house), I don’t always care for knitting in there if I am going to be doing a lot of knitting.
Luckily I have a strong husband who is willing to carry a desk and chair downstairs for me and put up with my cluttering up the family room for a short time. I usually do this when I have a lot of knitting to do, or if the weather is snowy outside, since I have a large picture window to look out of.
It’s so much more convenient for me to knit downstairs. I can let the dogs outside and supervise them. I can cook dinner or do other chores while I am knitting. I am close to the refrigerator so I can refill my iced-tea. I don’t have to climb up and down the stairs a gajillion times a day. (ok, I am just lazy I guess).
Anyhow, since I have been on a knitting spree with my bed socks, baby items and will soon be making some dog blankets, I moved downstairs temporarily.
Unfortunately, it won’t be forever, but I did enjoy it very much yesterday when it was snowing like crazy out side. Since it is April, it will be a long time before that happens again.
I have a TV in front of the fireplace. Who wants to look at a “black hole”? Not me. I have a few shows I like to cycle through. I am waiting for the new season of Game of Thrones, so until that happens, I am watching my other shows. I just finished up a “Vikings” marathon and now I am on to a “Deadwood” binge. Next is “True Blood”. Hopefully by then Game of Thrones will be on.
