It's done. My knitting room has been repainted, re-tabled, and newly shelved. Yarnies are all sorted and stashed by weight in drawer bins. DPNs are all sorted & banded by size. There's a new bright cotton rug on the floor and a nice bright lamp in the corner. It's a very nice place to sit & knit/spin. I like it....and it's mine-all-mine (except for the kitties' litter box tucked in the corner- crap....literally!)
The first knitting project I completed in my new room were these:
They are WendyKnit's "Dead Simple Lace" in Lorna's Laces Wendy's Sunrise from TLE. I learned a lot about short rows with these socks. I have grown as a knitter! Thank you Wendy!
I'll leave you with this thought -
Aahhhh - Bermuda.....beautiful! Happy knitting!

I've made a mess! Everything has been moved out of my knitting room and into the dining room. The knitting room received a coat of tinted primer yesterday and today, once Lifeguard Boy wakes up, will get the final coat of paint.
All of those papers in the foreground are remnants of three years of grad school....classes...projects...research.....all of it will go to live in a BIG box in the basement - then I'll organize my yarn stash and move everything back into my beautiful "new" room. Geesh - that's kind of scary - let's think about something nice:
.......ah......a bag 0'Wollmeise.......inhale deeply.......all will be well!
