I moved recently. And while it was completely overwhelming, it was also really exciting. Sure I have a ton of boxes left to unpack and I feel a little like a nomad right now. But the fun part is that I get to reinvent my space and how I organize it.
The one space that seems to stay the same (more or less) from apartment to apartment is the front hall closet. As I was unpacking my coats and winter accessories I couldn’t help but wonder how a front hall closet of a knitter might look to a non-knitter. Since it is nice and neat (for the moment anyway), I was eager to share it with you and ask if you if yours looks similar.
- Basket full of hats – that is overflowing.
- Scarves and cowls I wear on a regular basis are carefully hung over hooks…funny how for the most part they all seem to be in the same color family.
- Large Namaste bag…perfect for traveling and larger projects with lots of pockets for holding multiple small projects and knitting notions.
- Basket of cowls – also overflowing.
- Scarves that aren’t in my daily repertoire, but still on ‘active duty’ neatly folded in sweater hanger.
- Bag of project bags that aren’t currently in use…but are there in case of emergency.
- Felted purse I made for a wedding.
- Left over fiber fill from a stuffed animal
Also in the closet, but not visible in the photograph:
- Cabled knitted bag…one can never have enough bags.
- Bag from Squam Arts Retreat – perfect for a project or as a Farmer’s Market bag.
- Cabled toppers for my Hunter boots.
- Mittens in the bottom of the hat basket.
Does your front hall closet look the same? I have a sneaking suspicion it does.
