After interviewing many fiber folk for KnitNook, one thing is clear to me: Having a big comfy chair to knit on is essential. Well knitters, feast your eyes on this adorable knitted pouf chair, inspired by the highest mountain in Sweden!
I spotted it on Design Sponge, one of my favorite blogs. (The founder, Grace Bonney, is also a fellow Greenpointer!)

MayaMuseTextiles, Hanprinted Designer Pillow / Cushion
Big bold print? Check! Fun bright color? Check! Knitterly design? Check! I’m all over this pillow from Maya Muse Textiles!
Her products boast original designs and are screen printed by hand using all-natural materials. I only wish she had more prints and products to choose from! That being said, I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on her Etsy shop.
IKEA EDLAND Linen cabinet, $399.00
Moving day is here! There’s still lots of packing to do but I can’t resist taking a break to peruse the internet for more future nook decor.
I have a funny feeling I’m not the only knitter who’s been drooling over IKEA’s EDLAND linen cabinet. Actually, I’m amazed it took me this long to post about it!
EDLAND meets all my needs for yarn storage; inspired vintage design, glass doors (so I can see my stash) and a pull out drawer to hide leftover yarn, rogue knitting needles, etc… I’m also smitten with those teardrop knobs! (It’s the little things)
Me and the Mister will be taking a trip to IKEA in the near future and all I can say is EDLAND will be mine… it WILL be mine!
When me and the Mister finish moving, no doubt we’ll be up to our ears in cardboard boxes and bubble wrap.
There are two things I can do; Chuck it… or get crafty! — Which is what this clever recycled paper basket tutorial from Design Sponge is inspiring me to try. (The yarn brimming from said basket certainly helps!)
I’m not very graceful with a sewing machine but I just love the idea.

Knitters who podcast may agree: having the right tools and a space to record is half the battle. Recording decent sound quality is a whole other issue!
While not everyone can afford a professional microphone or recording studio, some of the best knitting podcasts are done on a shoe string budget! Sound doesn’t have to be perfect, but anything you can do to eliminate annoying elements, like echoes, will make your show a more enjoyable listen!
Thankfully, there are several ways to reduce echoes, like stapling egg crates to the wall! If thats not what you had in mind, then check out this nifty tutorial posted on Craftzine.com! (Originally podted on Our First Cottage.) They’re fun and easy to make… Not to mention budget friendly!
Hang a few of these on the wall(s) of your knit nook, maybe throw down an area rug and it doubles as a functional and very stylish recording booth!
