|tools gathered for repair|
Several months ago, I purchased some heavy designer fabric and some cotton batting. Over the weekend, I gathered the necessary tools (heavy duty staple gun, pliers, screw driver, the fabric and batting), measured the foot rest and got to work.

I debated on whether to remove the row of studs at the bottom (which are very uncomfortable on my heels) but I decided that the new batting would cover them.

The footrest repair is not professional by any means, but it will extend the life of my knitting chair.
Before I purchase a chair for knitting, I make sure that my arms and elbows are at a comfortable height while sitting in the chair. If the chair's arms are too high, it is nearly impossible to knit.
Do you have a favorite chair for knitting or crafting?
