It’s not a secret that home décor and knitting go together like salt and pepper! In this blog post I would like to suggest 5 projects you can easily knit for your home or give as a present for your friends. Some of them may require a long period of time and dedication, others can be done in a few hours!
Home décor trends
In the last years knitted home accessories became very popular and cool, so that we can easily find knitted pillows, chunky blankets, baskets in many home décor “fast” stores. Nothing against those stores, but if you can knit it you won’t buy it, you’ll make it yourself at home! So, let me give you some ideas I found on Pinterest, just to get inspired and maybe start your own knitted home décor project to give to your gorgeous dining or bedroom a Nordic taste and make your 'nest' even more cozy and welcoming!
Reading multiple books at once as knitting multiple projects at once
I know you can think that some of these home furnishings are very time consuming but let me tell you something... I have this idea that reading multiple books at once can actually help you finish faster. And I think this idea may apply to almost everything you do in your life (of course if you are a woman and you know the meaning of the word “multitasking”!). When reading multiple books at once, you never have to sacrifice. You can read multiple genres, different authors, and different styles of prose. This way you can also balance reading for work and reading for pleasure. It happens to me that this theory works very well for knitting as well.
Five must-have items for your home
Here you’ll find some ideas you can easily realize with a lot of satisfaction!
