Room Reclaimed

Over Christmas, my knitting room is usually turned into Gift Central. The gifts wait there until it's time to be wrapped. Wrapping paper, bags, and boxes also collect there, as well as all of the scissors and tape in the house. Today, I decided it was time to reclaim my room. I also moved the big green chair back into the room, as my spinning chair was not very comfortable for knitting.

Now I'm working on storage/display for my spindles. I'm planning to hang a long shelf and put cup hooks underneath. I think these will look really nice hanging there.
In knitting news, I finished my first project of the year. It's a Flapotis made from Muensch Touch Me. I still have to wash it.
My second project of the year is on the needles: these cats mittens in Skinny Bugga! Gosh, I love that stuff more every time I knit with it. I can't decide whether to make both of the mittens the same, or to do the second one in opposite colors. What do you think? They'll be eye-catching no matter what!

Time to get back to my cozy little room - happy January knitting to you!

I hope to have that many spindles when I learn to spin. I think the mittens would look cool if you made them opposite colors. I can't wait to see what you do.

I am so jealous you have your own rom, I have space in my closet. The mittens are very fun, great colors.

I'm wishing I could get my room in order! I'd like to come over and join you, and have a cup of tea, and spin
