Hi! It's been a whirlwind of a past few days! My only Wip I'm currently knitting is..
These ankle socks in RYC Cashcotton (gosh this yarn is soooo soft!!) I split 1 skein and as you can see on the left, got past the ankle. Have it on holders to see how many more rows I'll need, that is after I complete sock 2, which you see on the right. These were to be my August socks for SAM 6 I mean, using US 4 needles. It wasn't going to happen. DD and I had plans to finish the room changeover!
Yes, since my son is gone and will only be home for very short visits, and we do not have a large house, I claimed my DD's room as she claimed his. Although..hers now has way more shelves...hmmm how did I lose that bet!
These are early pictures, still a WIP and I plan on changing the wolf theme, but hey only so much time in the day. I think our trash people hated us today. A full trash can and 8 or so large black bags too. We're both proud we went through a lot of stuff, threw junk away and set aside a lot for donations.
YAHOO! I have a sewing corner that I don't have to tidy anymore! Just close the door and here you go! The little table to the right is for my serger, no more cramped quarters or dining room table (aww don't feel bad table, I still need you to cut stuff out!) I do need a more comfy chair to sew in and a new rug...ick, what a mess I found!
This is the bureau I stained and finished myself. I also painted those wooden knobs as you can see how many are there, um..no close ups, my painting sucks!
Boy what a fiasco this was. I was going to use an old sewing cabinet, but this metal stand wouldn't hold my daughters tv, so I kept it in here..glad I did, I needed it. Woot! 1 place for all my books and patterns!
Hey..mother of invention...my coffee table! Thereby lies my Lamb's pride stash and some Noro and a few others....see close at hand LOL! A piece of fabric hiding in the hope chest and viola a place for my drinks, remotes, yarns...etc.
But my new favorite spot! Ahhhh! The sofa/bed I got on my trip to Ikea. So happy to have that, plus it will be son's place to rest when he visits...which BTW, from what we hear, he's doing quite well! Hubby's cousin saw him on Saturday and he looked pretty good, kinda cute w/no hair. He can't call yet, still in Regiment training mode, but hopefully soon!
Have a great Wednesday!
