Hobby Room

This is my hobby room from the doorway with alot of boxes, shrink wrap, bubble wrap and just stuff we had no clue where to store while the rest of the apartment took shape. You see that little spec in the right hand corner behind the wire rack? That my friends is my loom... sigh..... After a few hours of unpacking and unraveling my loom was freed from the mummification of the shrink wrap, hello baby!! The project on the loom, didn't make it intact. I cut off what I had this morning and will re-sley it this week sometime. I'm going to finish the scarf in a simple twill to get it off the loom. I'm in desperate need of some dishtowels and have 6/2 cotton in tan, red, and I think green and want to try some waffle weave patterns.
Mr. Deepend is going to hang my warping board on the wall, which will make it easier to work on, of course he marked the wall for his 6'1" height and forgot that I'm all of 5' 2", unless I want to use the 4.5" heels I have to warp, he needs to re-asses this height dilemma, I think he's under the impression that I might just grow some more. Little does he realize that as we age we tend to shrink, by the time I'm 70 (God willing) I'll be a munchkin. LOL..
This wire rack was a good investment, it's holding my knitting yarns, and some of the weaving cones, my sewing machine and some fabric.

In the closet I'm keeping my cotton small cones, extra knitting yarn in pull out plastic drawers, these are also handy storage units. In the deep corner of the closet, I stored the wool yarn sorted out by color in each bin. I need to spend some time and catalog the yarn just to figure out what I really have and what can be done with it.

I still need to set up the book case and rearrange some things, but I think it's looking pretty decent. At least I can start weaving some this week, I really can't wait to sit at my loom and throw the shuttles.

I'm jealous...I wish I had a hobby room. Instead, I have a hobby house, lol! I've been waiting for my youngest daughter's room, but then she really started talking about moving and I was like, "No! Don't leave me!"

What every creative person needs - a space to call their own. Congrats and I'm looking forward to seeing those towels!

Your new weaving space is so organized - wish mine was!

Hip Hip Hooray! The Mac is seeing the light of day.
We're all a-tweet, your room looks sweet.

Okay that's it for my poem mode this morning.
How exciting. I can hardly wait for those waffle weave towels to take shape! Happy weaving!

Haha! Stuart does that too: he is 6'4" and I am 5'6" and I can only just see the top of my head in our bathroom mirror! I spent a lot of time winding warps standing on a stool until I came into a second warping board and got him to hang it at a better height - the old one is now bedecked with skeins of yarn so it has worked out fine. Won't it be lovely to be all settled in your new creative space?

It looks like your weaving area is shaping up quite nicely!! You are so organized, with bins and shelves for everything. I need to organize my stuff-maybe tomorrow:-)

Enjoy your week!

How lovely to have a hobby room. Yours reminds me of the one I had during our apartment living days. Not being much of one for apartment living, it kept me sane. :)
