The Knitting Room

I have made some headway in my knitting room. I have re-homed another pile of magazines - over a foot in height. Plus two bin liners of rubbish. You can now actually see the far corner of the room. I knew it was always there, but HK had his doubts. The top of the desk is virtually clear, just a few things need putting in another place. The plan is to move HK's laptop, the printer etc to in here(!) I just need to sort out the bookcase so I can move some of my cross stitching paraphenalia from the front room into here. So progress is being made, honest!

This is the general view of the room, from by the door. It does look untidy on first glance, but look closer, it isn't as bad as what as it has been. Empty magazine holders can be seen on the shelves. There is still 4 skeins of yarn to be balled up, 2 skeins are very resistive of this and are full of tangles. I did threaten them yesterday with the bin unless they co-operate next time I have a go at balling them.

A closer look at the shelving. See, it doesn't seem that bad! Still lots of room for improvement, which will happen, believe me. I have always been a bit of an untidy bod. HK, however is the complete opposite - tidy, ordered and not a bit of clutter to be seen. I tell him I'm his 'Tidy Nemesis'. We have compromised, where I try and be tidy and not leave my things all around the house and he realises that I will never reach his level of Tidy Order. I am allowed a corner in the front room to put my bits, and to put a few things on my rocking chair. But I can't put too much in either place, and tidy regularly. Fair enough really!
One of my storage areas for yarn. This is admittedly a mess and needs sorting. It's been over rummaged and not straightened. The TV and the DVD player are going at the weekend as well. I haven't used them since HK put them in there for me. I'm not one that needs background noise all the time, sometimes it's nice to have peace and quiet and just listen to the natual noise around me. Plus my head is usually whizzing with what I can do with all the lovely yarn, that I don't need further distraction of more noise!



Another stash unit. I had the stupid idea yesterday of finding somewhere else to put the yarn in here, so I could get rid of the actual unit and make more space. I'll not do anything with it until the room is straight and I can see where the space is. I know there is space in the cupboard area of the dresser next to it. I'm trying to stash bust as much as I can. I know over the next year or so, yarn purchasing will be reduced. It doesn't bother me too much, as I know it will take a couple of months of Sundays to make a reasonable dent in this lot. There is also 2 further free standing units of yarn as well.......
