The Sofas Are Here! The Sofas Are Here!

Yeah, I’m pretty much that excited. Pictures will be along just as soon as I’m able to clear out the extra furniture from my living room. The new sofas look awesome with the blue color I chose for the living room, and they’re super comfy. I love being able to push a button to lift the footrest, and I’ve spent a rare (lately, that is) evening mostly relaxing with my feet up, watching TV and knitting.

Tomorrow evening Mom and I are going to start to put my new closet organization into the master bedroom closet. Pretty soon I’ll be able to hang up clothes! And I’m putting my dresser into the closet, which will clear up space to put a nice comfy chair in a corner of my bedroom by the window.

The next big hurdle is figuring out how to get the couch I had in the living room into the second bedroom. Mom and I rearranged and cleared out the room for the move, only to realize how difficult it’s going to be to fit through the door. It’ll go, but it has to be on its side, and with the pull-out bed inside, it’s really hard to move that way. For the moment it’s cozy with the  table in the dining room.

I’ve been able to get a little knitting in this weekend, and my current stitch total for NaKnitMo stands at 9,117/30,000 (I might get a little more than that done before bed tonight). I have quite a way to go in the next eight days! Though there will be other work to do, I’m sort of counting on the four-day weekend to get lots and lots of knitting in. After today I’ll probably work on the Hemlock Blanket rather than the bathmat not only because I can gets lots of stitches quickly, but also because I want to finish the blanket one of these months.
