I have been pondering something lately and I'm curious as to what others think.
In looking at other blogs, spending time with knitters, and from my own personal experience, I find that other aspects of my life are affected by my knitting obsession(I mean hobby). I find myself drawn to all things sheepy and knitty, so much so that I don't see anything wrong with wanting to decorate at least one room(or all) with sheep paraphernalia, yarn, and notions. I have already collected quite a few stuffed sheep and I am noticing that sheep figurines are popping up throughout the house. And it's not just sheep, I've also found myself drawn to unique needles and other notions(like tape measures). Now I even find myself looking for receptacles to hold these things to make display even easier.
My ideal knitting room would actually be a combination knitting/library space. I'd love to have a room that goes up two floors. Floor to ceiling cherry wood bookshelves with one of those ladders on rails running around the second level. The shelves would be full of books(and I'm well on my way with having enough at this point), yarn(I could always use more of that), and my growing collection of sheep paraphernalia. There would be a large bay window with a window seat for those days when I want a breeze from outside and a beautiful view. And for those days when I want to curl up in a chair with a good book or knit, there would be two chair and a half chairs with ottomans flanking a large, stone fireplace. And if money were no object it would be sound proof so I wouldn't have to listen to the screaming and chaos whenever I try to have time by myself--hah!
More realistically my knitting/sheep room will be my guest room in our next house. The closet will hold my stash and the room will be decorated with pastoral toile and sheepy goodness :)
How about you? What's your ideal--money is no object--knitting space? Dare to dream!
