Enhancing Your Creative Space
As creatives, I think a lot of us are affected by the space we work in. In my own studio at home, I often can't focus if my work space is messy. I'm in the midst of an overhaul, revamping my organization and trying to put together a room that is both inspirational and functional all at the same time.

Oh, and attempting to build my own custom shelving. 
It's going... okay.

They're level and they don't fall down, so that's something, right?

While things are still a work in progress, I'm slowly making changes to turn it into a room that's truly inspiring.  I find that I need to remove actual clutter to help reduce mental clutter and I'm trying to surround myself with inspirational objects, colors, and textures help get the creative juices flowing.

Maintaining a space that fosters creativity is not always easy. Here are some small things you can do to enhance and organize your knitting space. Even if you don't have a whole room, maybe just a corner or a chair, I'm hoping you can put some of these ideas to work!

1.  Don't hide your tools and materials in boxes out of sight.  Find a unique way to display them so they can inspire you while you're working!

At home, I put all my needles in a mason jar.  A ceramic vase would work nicely too!

2.  Put up some inspirational art!  Here are a few art prints perfect for a knitting room.

3. Find a special way to store your WIPs while bringing in natural textures through ceramics, baskets, or wood.

4.  Hygge it up!  Fill your creative space with things that make you feel happy and cozy.  Mugs, blankets, books, and candles can help create an warm and inspiring vibe.
