I sit on the couch on the right hand side with my feet up on the couch, too. My yarn is to my right if I'm knitting english, to my left if I'm knitting continental. The TV is usually on unless the project requires my full attention.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

On the right side of the couch (if your looking at it), with my yarn in my little bag on my left. I'm either cross-legged or sitting somewhat on my left hip with my knees off to the side with my left arm on the armrest. I'm a continental knitter. In winter I have to have my legs stretched out (the ends of the couch lift open to recliners) so my dog can lie on the couch with me with her head in my lap. That's really my favorite position.

Like this, but with my feet toward the left side so that my yarn basket can sit next to them and with my elbows inside the armrests, not on them.

I guess that's not the same at all, except that I'm in a recliner. It's not even a Lazy-Boy!

I have a high backed office chair that I use for knitting. I have an obus form back rest in it. Sometimes I cross my legs, sometimes I don't. The yarn barn, bag, or container always sits to my right. Sometimes I put my legs up on the back of the love seat that sits right beside my desk. I also have a breast feeding pillow that I put under my arms, and rest my arms and my knitting on that for comfort if I am planning a long knitting session. I hope this helps.
I love to give homemade gifts... which one of my kids do you want?

I'm one of those people you see sitting on a park bench or at a restaurant with a ball of yarn and a set of needles... I knit wherever and whenever the fancy strikes me. Usually when I knit at home I sit either on my bed semi-prone with my knitting on my chest, or curled up in front of the TV or somewhere else comfortable. When I'm out, I generally tend to keep my yarn in my bag and bunch the project in a heap on my lap, so people aren't bugged by my constantly-moving work in addition to the clack of my needles

"As an artist, the only thing I have to offer is the revelation of my soul."
-Eleonora Duse

I knit because sometimes it's the only way to keep from strangling stupid people.

It's hard to think about how I sit without doing it and observing myself I sit kitty-corner to the far left (when sitting) of my couch, feet on the coffee table. My cat is usually on my lap biting the yarn as I use it, or if I'm lucky, is attacking the ends of the needles. My arms fall asleep every twenty minutes ,so I have to shake them all the time.
