I hope everyone is having a lovely Saturday! I'm in the middle of baking some bread (I'm waiting for it to rise right now) and working on placing a Knit Picks order. It seems that I am going to run out of yarn for my swap knitting so I need to get some more asap. Not that I mind at all....it would be silly of me to order a few balls and not get the free shipping now wouldn't it?
Anyways, the picture above is what I would call my "work desk" since it is where I do all my blogging, pattern searching/writing, Ravelry-ing, and quite a bit of my knitting. I thought I'd show you what an average day for me at my desk looks like. (The strange angle of the photo is because I'm taking it from sitting on the floor. I was down there taking photos of other knitting projects and thought I'd snap it at the same time). The desk is a bit, actually more like a lot, of creative chaos most of the time. Sometimes I find it inspiring while other times I find it too cluttered to even think straight! The point of this is - I was wondering where all of you do most of your knitting/creative work and how do you keep it inspiring and not messy? I seem to be having a bit of a difficult time finding the right balance and just wondered what others do.
I also wanted to share the picture of my completed Bitty Cabled Cardigan now that I've got the picture to upload right-side up! This pattern is by Heather Cabanas and I purchased it from Knit Picks. It's part of their IDP (Independent Designers Program). You can also purchase it from Ravelry here. I knit mine from Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in Ivory and did the newborn (8-9 pounds) size. It was super quick and very easy. The baby I originally knit it for ended up being a little too big for it by the time I was ready to mail it, so I'm going to save it for another little one. Now I need to find something else to knit for that baby :-) But I think the Knit Picks order can help me out with that!
