Mr. Aitch is a retired music/band teacher. He used to play piano, saxophone. clarinet, trumpet, and flute on a regular basis and owned all of those instruments of torture (just kidding) at one time. We still have the piano and he plays his saxophone in the college/community jazz band. He practices at home between rehearsals. As of now all rehearsals and concerts are on hold because of, well, you know.
Anyway, the point of this was to tell you about my new knitting tool. I wanted a way to watch videos or read books on my iPad while knitting. I tried to prop it up enough so I could see the screen and not hurt my neck but no matter what I did, I was not comfortable. When I mentioned my dilemma to Mr. Aitch, he suggested his music stand.
Voila! It was perfect…almost. It was a bit too tall even when in the lowest position but it was something we had and it worked…until he needed it to practice. Then I was out of luck.
So I did some research and found the perfect solution for me.
The Manhasset 48CA stand is the same stand but the concertina size so it’s shorter than a regular music stand and designed for those who sit when performing. This is great as I can sit comfortably in my favorite chair and watch videos, read, or listen to a book or music and knit! No more straining my neck to see over the stand when Mr. Aitch is talking to me.
The stand is a sturdy metal and heavy so it would not tip over though it can be moved. The height is adjustable and the stand can be tilted from almost verticle to horizontal as desired. The lip is wide enough for books, pens, pencils, note pad, and/or an iPad.
I love how all my knitting necessities fit nicely on the stand.
Have you taken something unusual and made it fit your needs?
Love this solution! I sometimes use my cat as a pattern holder when he insists on plopping down in front of me 😂
