    • What’s your favorite hangout spot?
      • #8 skileyknits
        • My hangout spots depend on time and weather. When its nice out and I can get some alone time my favorite place is on the porch swing on my back deck watching the river with a good book and a cuppa. When that isn’t an option my cozy spot in the living room- my chair and footstool-which is usually being occupied by a cat or 3- surrounded by the things I love. My yarn is behind me, my wips beside me, and my family elsewhere in the room.
