A short little meme

Angela very kindly tagged me for the Knitting Spot Meme way back on December 8. This was right before I was swallowed up by the Holiday Knitting Vortex. This meme does not appear to have any rules, which is nice.


That would be my living room. Yes, indeed. Noteworthy Items:

-cd/tape player. I listen to thousands of audio books. If the public library stopped carrying books on tape I would have to stop knitting. I'm always on the prowl for new ideas...does anybody have any favorites? I'm willing to give anything a try as long as it isn't too depressing or bloody.
-Laptop. The source of many things Elliphantom.
-Octosock the second. On the needles, folks. I'm now up to the heel.

I'm going to tag Lyn, Julia, and Wendie.

p.s. Don't forget to watch the premiere of DWTS tomorrow night. Why? To support Thunk's brother and sister-in-law, of course! (end of shameless plug)


Note the two containers of knitting needles under the lamp. And that's not her entire collection, folks ...

Wow, can I say I know a celeb now, kinda? =) Thanks for showing your spot! Looks comfy and it's got everything you need. No need to run around the house. Love how your scale is next to the laptop. It's almost like a lab! =)

I transitioned from listening to books on tape to reading while I knit. There's an overview of how I did it on my blog (Dec 20, it looks like).

I recommend anything by John McPhee - his creative nonfiction is excellent (and Pulitzer winning). You've probably already listened to Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels - they're fabulous on tape. And Philip Pullman's series (His Dark Materials) that starts with "The Golden Compass" is very good.

I've only recently started reading your blog, so I'm not really sure what you like to read. I'd recommend listening to the Harry Potter series to anyone - better than the books or movies is listening to Jim Dale read them. Fabulous. Plus, many hours of listening enjoyment.

I love the swift within easy reach. Your knitting nest looks pretty comfy.

Hmmm... so the meme is share a pic of your living room? I'm going to have to cop out...I don't even have a living room! I share a tiny apartment with a roommate which is really made for one person. My roommate's bedroom is where the living room should be! Tag me when you do another meme! I have to say, I'm impressed you listen to books on tape while knitting. I shamelessly watch old episodes of That Seventies Show, Ren and Stimpy, and My So Called Life that I download. I should do something more wholesome... ;)

Um *scratches head* egads, this means I'm going to have to clean my favorite knitting spot!

I'm listening to A Good Year for Plums, and my mom is letting me borrow a whole bag full of stuff they've bought - Anil's Ghost, a few The Cat Who books... I just finished Oryx and Crake and before that was The Amazing Adventures of Kavelier and Clay and the Life of Pi (OMG like 50 CDs for that book).
