I would love to hear what others favour for working chairs. I have tried several different types but have not found the right one yet. I need good back support but I prefer a rocker with a swivel but not a recliner. The arms make a big difference but I would like one that would fit in the living room as I work in front of the TV.

A woman that I house sat for had a chair called "Stressless Chair". I have back and joint problems and I could sit in this chair and knit all day and evening and I was perfectly comfortable. I got up to do the usual little things but I did not have the need to get up and walk around or do stretches. I don't know if it is ever called anything else. You can find it on line. They make couches and several styles of chairs but they are horribly expensive. Still if/when I can afford one, I will make the investment.

There was a discussion about this awhile ago... I saved it https://www.knittingparadise.com/t-412499-1.html

A very experienced furniture salesman once told me that one must try on chairs just like you would a piece of clothing that is difficult to fit. A bra came to mind as he spoke.

In other words, take your knitting and go to a store that carries a big variety of chairs and go sit in them for a while. And knit while you are in each one. Pretty soon you will figure out what is right for you.

I have actually done that! And that is how I selected my current "wide load" chair!

I just sit on the sofa. It's very comfy.

I have a glider but the arms were a little too high for me, BUT I had an extra double contoured orthopedic neck pillow that I now sit on and it is perfect

Our couch has recliners at both ends. It's very comfortable for hours of knitting. If I don't knit, I fall asleep in it!

My complaint, aside from arms higher than I'd like, is that I want mt feet/legs elevated (preferably to or a tad above hip level), but I do not want to have my body inclined back. I'm makinf do with what I've got, but I'm always on the lookout my ideal one.

I use a Dutalier Glider Rocker. The arms are low enough on mine that I don't get a sore neck. I also have the glider footstool for when I need to elevate my legs. It's very comfortable.
