As the craft room has developed, I wanted a nice place to hang all my knitting bags, so they would be off the floor but easy to grab on my way out the door.
Originally, I contemplated getting one of those sturdy, standing coat racks, but remember when we had a professional tree guy take down the dead aspen tree? As I was looking at those logs, I decided on another option.
Here is the inspirational piece:
I took that long chunk of tree to a hand-made furniture specialist here in town and asked them cut it lengthwise to get a nice long log with a flat back side. For the sake of detail, this cost me $48 and about a week’s wait because they were super busy at the time with things far more important that slicing a woman’s aspen log.
While I was waiting, I ordered some 2-inch hand crafted wrought iron hooks from an artist in Winchester, Virginia who has a shop on Etsy. I would link to his shop, but I can’t find his card anymore.
With all those pieces together, my guy hooked the log to the wall and placed the hooks along the log.
With the hooks on it, I could hang my bags on the hooks:
… and I could put everything back into its spot.
Now THAT’S a knitting room – finally!
