My Craft Space

I have organized my craft space and I’ve kept it clean and tidy for a few weeks now. Hard to believe that my new system stood up against overly enthusiastic stash enhancement shopping sprees and even more yarn acquisition from a generous friend and the dabbling of yet another craft hobby and most importantly, “I’ve-got-a-great-idea-that-I-must-do-it-right-now!” moments!

Computer workspace
Ifa, my female cat, pretty much lives on the printer. The only time she gets up voluntarily is when I’m cooking or eating or when it’s her dinner time. I normally kick her out of the room halfway through the day so that she can get some exercise.

Craft workspace
It’s so good to have a table just for my sewing and crafting. The white board and stackable storage boxes helps keep me on track and in check. Cats have learned to keep off this area, otherwise, Mummy goes psycho!

Store related containers
Two of my 50 litre containers hold my store related materials, stock and yarn. My thinking is that if these boxes are overflowing, I’m not selling enough products quickly enough. Time to re-think a few things.

Yarn stash
The largest of the containers is 57 litres and it holds all my stash yarn. I really can’t afford to have any more than this much yarn. I don’t have the space or the money to let this grow any bigger. I have enough stash yarn to keep me knitting and crocheting for at least one year! Although, I will make allowances for free yarn. I’m not that silly!

Knitting WIP
I have Shawl Collar Vest [pattern] and Feather & Fan Comfort Shawl [pattern] on my needles now. I am almost finished with the vest and I’m obsessively knitting it every chance I get.

Crocheting WIP
These are hot off my crochet hooks. I’m just waiting on a delivery to put the finishing touches on them. Watch this space for my new Christmas crochet pattern. Coming very soon!

Did you like the voyeuristic peek into my craft room? I’ve shown you mine, now show me yours. 😉

      Hi Celia! I’ve recently inherited that bag of Katia Jamaica. But I’ve never heard of the yarn before this. Why am I soooo lucky?

    Thanks for sharing. I like seeing other people’s craft spaces.

  5. Those CHristmas trees are darling! I loved seeing your craft space too. Unfortunately all of my craft supplies live in various cupboards around the house – I don’t have anything near as cute as yours to share 🙁

    Hi, I guess you haven’t used it yet! I just adore playing with that cotton and the colors in each skein are amazing. I love to make cozies with that lovely yarn!
    .-= celia´s last blog ..Shame on me =-.

    • Salihan says:

      Actually I have used it for my upcoming Christmas crochet pattern. Have a look at my pictures again and see whether you can see the pink, green and yellow cotton. I do agree with you that it is wonderful to work with. So soft and the colours are so bright and cheery!

      It’s a shame I haven’t seen the yarn in any LYS around here (Sydney). Can you get it easily where you are?

    I live in Tenerife, an island in Spain and Katia is a Spanish brand so here is so easy to find even though only a few shops carry them in my islands as there are many others much more cheaper!
    I love all the yarns from Katia and I am always waiting for each season to see what they got new! lol…
    Now I haven’t been to the yarn shop but will go for this winter yarn soon!

    • Salihan says:

      Oh I must keep an eye out for Katia yarn then. Drop me a message when you’ve bought your winter yarn and blogged about it. I would love to see the colours you’ve picked. 🙂 Have a lovely weekend!
