Though I did not make this I had a small hand in it and I just had to share it with you knitters
This is a project more than ten years in the making. It all started on a trip to La Jolla, CA when my mom & I found a wonderful little knit shop. I’m sure we found some great yarns but what we both took away from this visit was that we just HAD to cover a chair in knitting. They had a lovely chair all decked out in its own knitwear!
Then my mom remembered a suitcase she found in my Great Aunt’s garage, it was full of unfinished cable work pieces and parts. In fact two long pieces and a 3rd piece was still on the needles! Though she inherited these gorgeous pieces she had no idea what to do with them nor had the heart to throw them out so there they sat for YEARS.
Then I bought her a plain Ikea TULLSTA chair –
after some upholstery staples, a lot of sewing, and even some duck tape…
I now have chair ENVY!
What a perfect addition to her knitting parlor.
Thank you Aunt Louise!!
