Remember this? This was my craft room for months, right after I moved into my new place.
I actually spun sitting right in the middle of that mess, though it wasn’t exactly conducive to the creative process. When you spend 7 or so waking hours in a room, more on weekends, it’s kind of important that you like the room.
The bookshelf behind my chair holds the large spinning and knitting supplies, as well as my colored roving in glass jars (shout out to Barbara, who had that brilliant idea). Actually seeing my spindles, and the fat jars full of colorful roving inspires me to spin.
I’ve very carefully set up the area that is to my right as I spin. Small items, spinning wheel oil, and a place for a glass of water are all in easy reach in the three drawer side table. A trash can for the odd bits of yarn, and a hidden corner for the bag roving I’m working with flank the table.
I painted the room banana creme, and all of my navy and dark blue accents ended up setting off the cheery wall color nicely. Yellow is a great creative color, I find.
Anyway. Now there’s nothing left to do but spin!
