Knitting finish

Yesterday I spent most of the day knitting on the baby blanket.  I'm happy to report as of 1:30 a.m EST, I finally bound off the last of the stitches.

Two blankets down one to go! Plus in down sizing I found a pink prepackaged pieces for a baby quilt.  Another thing I can get out of the way, since another baby is on the way from my sister's side of the family.

I also bought a chair today at Target. It's supposed to be for a nursery.  But it was so comfortable, it also rocks, that I decided to splurge and purchase it.  My hubby will probably have a cow!  I got the hubby to carry down the base, where ch was too heavy for me.  Put it together, moved into the space I wanted it, and readjusted the height of my floor stand to accommodate the height of the new chair.  Got to admit I'm loving my new stitching corner.

I have been sitting in my mother's goose necked rocking chair.  But it just isn't made for me.  It sits too close to the ground, my stand keeps hitting the wooden arms. I'm almost 5'5", but her chair is more suited for her since she's 4'11".

Up side is I can also get her out of the my office chair to my sewing machine, which she slides up to almost next to the TV.  When a commercial comes on, she spins the office chair in my direction and stares at me.  Even though it's my own mom, it's a bit unsettling. 

I feel like I got caught doing something I shouldn't. 

Meanwhile I have managed to unpack most of the pieces for the chair and dispense them to the basement. Cut up the box and placed it next to the recycle. The only thing I have not been able to carry downstairs is the base.  It's just too dang heavy.  So there's no sneaking this baby into the house.

Doesn't look like it from here, but it's a very light gray micro suede.


  1. Way to go on getting the baby blanket finished, Pam! So, does this comfy chair has a brand name? Enjoy your new chair!

    1. I got the chair from Target. It was being displayed in the nursery furniture section. It was on sale, and if you use your Target credit card, you get an additional 5% off. I think I ended up paying about $260 for it. Thought hubby would have a cow, but he took the news fairly well. Bet now he wishes he had bought the matching chair when we bought the new sectional. know hubbies. Sometimes it has to be their own idea.
